In response to “Working like a dog (or cat)


Mon, Sep 8th, 2014

To the Editor,

Pardon me…but I was overlooked by your writer of, “WORKING LIKE A DOG (OR CAT,)” on Monday, August 25’s news article. Let me introduce myself. I am “Gus,” a 16 pound, grey and white tabby cat, adopted by Gundersen Harmony Care Center in 2012. I am roughly 4-5 years old. I work in elder care as a “therapy cat,” providing friendship and companionship to the residents and staff that reside and work in the care center. Some of my work duties include: being a feline ambassador of the Care Center, be available to take “power naps” 24-7, while snuggling down in a variety of beds with the residents, remain a sentinel to all entrances, ensuring that we are a, “field-mice free” environment, keep a watchful eye over the bird aviary, provide comfort and care to those in need or distress, and assist the nurses on their night rounds. I work earnestly and diligently to gain new friends with my winsome ways. The perks of my job include: being the center of attention most days, feeling adoration by my residents and peers, and generously provided with a bottomless supply of treats. Like the majority of the population, I too prefer my treats to my meals. I am lucky to be live at Gundersen Harmony Care Center.
