Mock Interview with Delilah

Gus:  In light of the current cat unemployment situation, we are helping the cats at Great Plains SPCA prepare for their job searches by doing mock interviews.  Today, we are interviewing Delilah.


Gus:  Geesh, Jaq!  This is an interview not an interrogation!  You don't have to answer that question, Delilah.

Delilah:  That's ok.  I don't mind.  Yes, there was a rumor going around the shelter that I only liked younger men.  It is so not true, but I understand how the rumor got started.  You see there is a cute, young guy named Alex who volunteers.  I love, Love, LOVE to sit on his lap.  He says he is listening to music when he visits me but sometimes I think he falls asleep.  I have no problem sleeping with the boss if that is what it takes.

Gus:  So are there any kind of people that you don't like to work with?

Delilah:  I don't really like the tiny humans.  They are just so loud and they move kind of fast.  But other than that I like everyone.  I like males.  I like females.  I like young adults and seniors.  I pretty much like anyone that has a lap and sits still.  So see?  I'm not a cougar.  I prefer to think of myself as a panther - a sleek, black house panther.

Gus:  Other than lap warming, do you have any other specialties?

Delilah:  I like to consider myself a catnip connoisseur.  When possible, I do research on the over 250 varieties of catnip.  My favorite is Nepeta Cataria.

Gus:  Wow!  I only know common catnip.  You are so smart, Delilah!  You should have no problem finding a job.  Why anyone would be silly not to hire you with that catnip knowledge!  Good luck with the job search!

Delilah may be interviewed at Great Plains SPCA in Merriam, KS.

Special thanks to Melissa McGee Photography for taking these "headshots" of Delilah and the other applicants.


Update on Tracey:  Tracey decided she didn't want to go back to the shelter and ran and hid.  She has finally forgiven the Mama but it was too late to take her.  The Mama will try again soon.



  1. That was an excellent interview, Delilah. :)

  2. Delilah. Excellent interview. It sounds to us as if Alex should hire you, but everybody can use a black panfur on their workforce, so we hope you have a job soon. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
