Even cats are losing their jobs.
Yes, it's sad but true. The hotel cats were laid off/fired. Apparently they weren't doing the job for which they were hired -- catching mice. Of course in my opinion, it didn't help that they were being fed plenty of cat food. That took away their incentive to catch the mice. Plus they weren't given much of a chance -- only a week and a half before they were fired.
They were replaced with mousetraps. At least they weren't forced to train their replacements.
And the cats are being given new opportunities; the general manager took one home and one of the desk clerks took the other one home.
