Offspring #1 cat sits. She’s very, very good at it. People will say, “oh my cat is shy and you probably won’t see him the entire time we’re gone,” and within 2 minutes, the cat is purring on her lap.
Now, with any business–even a teenager’s cat sitting one–there are unpleasant business things involved, like negotiating fees and collecting the money.
Offspring #1 loves the cats and she loves getting paid. She doesn’t love it when it’s awkward.
She had two experiences this week, which tell me that she’s going to do just fine in the business world.
