About This Quiz

Assuming you own a cat, certain things can likely be said about your job. For a start, you have a job that allows you to come home with enough frequency to feed your cat and see to its other needs, or at least maintain a circle of friends who can step in when you aren't around to do this. That said, this leaves a lot of possibilities. We however, have a new tool at our disposal: science!

Thanks to our partnership with a major cat food brand and the NSA, we have a huge database on cat owners that allows us to pinpoint nearly any fact we want to, from favorite films to tastes in dance and architecture. For purposes of this quiz however, we are narrowing the use of this data set to just occupations. Not every cat lady is a librarian (although our data supports a statistically significant portion of librarians are cat ladies) and not every badass jock is some pit bull-owning meathead. People are as complex and diverse as the breeds of cats they enjoy. 

Are you willing to help improve our data set? Answer just a few brief questions about your car and we will accurately guess what you do for a living!
