Yeah, it is, i love it there, the best bit is "cleaning out" (playing) with the kittens when they are in.
You also get nasty things thougn, we have had cruelty cases and things like that as well, that isnt nice, but seeing them go off to homes when they have been treated is really rewarding.

As for mine, jeeze where to start...
In the past 20 years I have owned my own business as I can not stand to line others pockets. It started it out as a electronic security company but soon tired of that. So I sold all of my 4000+ accounts and changed it to computer building and repairs. Been with that for some time now. Real little money maker. And have a good time at it...
All the while working at this hotel as chief engineer.
