Cat from Southampton {England}

We've already featured quite a lot of store cats (such as this one and this one). They're almost always cats that live in the store day and night.

Sheldon Lee Cooper-Webster the cat, however, is quite different.

His owner rescued him because he was a stray that slept on the doorsteps of homes. The kitty was grateful to finally have a warm place to sleep at night. Soon, though, his human found out that her newly acquired tuxedo cat had... a day job.

Each morning, at the crack of dawn, Sheldon Lee Cooper-Webster goes to the retail store B&M.

"As soon as it's light, he's out the door before I even leave for work. He's very committed to the job so he likes to make sure he's there on time - sometimes he arrives before the store manager and his team get there," Webster says.

He has the self-appointed title as the head of the pet department of B&M.

His main "task" is to show the customers his favorite products in the store... such as Whiskas crunch cat treats, poultry in jelly and fish in jelly.

Or his favorite cat litter.

Of course, he tested all the cat beds on sale to make sure you'll pick the best option for your pet.

Sheldon Lee greets every customer that walks in the door.

The majority of the B&M customers love him so much they buy him his favorite food every time they go in the shop. The local children always ask to go and visit him.

By the end of the day, Sheldon Lee's human has to pick him up at the store, otherwise, he wouldn't leave after finishing his shift. He'd stay there 24/7 and do security if he could.

  14. Totally brilliant. In these days of increasing negativity to find a genuinely lovely company who welcomes a cat like this is magic!!

  15. This type of cat bed is very useful for cold days and for people who have radiators at home. Cats like sleeping in warm places, and it isn't surprising that they come to your flea treatment for cats
