Working on the streets can be tough; working outdoors alone can be even tougher. Just ask the street sweepers of Kiev, Ukraine... well, don't ask THIS guy, he seems to be having a wonderful time wielding his broom just outside a city bus shelter. Cloudy days in Kiev can be quite chilly, especially when it rains. What's a poor cat (or street sweeper) to do? They find a solution that works for everyone, of course!

As we can see, not one but TWO white cats have found a safe and secure spot to keep their little cat feet warm and dry. The relationship would appear to be a symbiotic one, since the street sweeper enjoys a twin vibrating heater for his cap. It may not be high-tech but it's definitely street smart!

According to neighborhood residents, the street sweeper is out performing his duties almost every day, rain or shine, and more often than not his two cats come along for the ride. He's even acquired a nickname that roughly translates as “Catanitor”: cat + janitor. Works for us... don't you wish he, er, they worked in your neck of the woods?
