20 Cats With Better Jobs Than You

Another week brings another ridiculous Facebook page to obsess over.

Meet T H I S C A T I S E M P L O Y E D, a forum for cats with jobs and purrfesional careers (sorry, not sorry) — both real and, well, imagined.

Currently home to a little more than 12,000 members, the public group features dozens of hilarious posts daily.

And while the pictures are plenty adorbs, it's the shared vocabulary (like deliberately misspelled pronouns and contractions) and stylized formatting (CAPS-heavy with s p a c e s inserted between characters) that helps push the captions into the LOL-worthy share zone.

But enough of the chitter chatter: let's get to the good stuff!
