Daddy says thank mew for all your purrs and well wishes.

However, he got the worst news possible today. Hes been laid off.

We thank mew for trying.
Daddy says, he's paid his internet until 1/2/13

after that, we will be off line, unless he gets a new job.

Worried purrs,

Awww Blizzards Daddy that is too bad. They don't know what they are missing. As a former library cat, don't forget that libraries offer free internet, so you can send out resumes and stay in touch with us too. Big hugs from us.

I know your Dad will get another job quickly. There's tons of porta potties out there! I'll keep my motor on and the purrs coming.

Yeah isn't there other of the same kind of companies out there? would you be willing to move if you could find another job?

Do you have a commerical driver's license? Maybe you can find something related, deliveries or other transport services. Don't worry too much about your age. An employer would be more intersted in your work history and seeing that you can hold a job. Our place was ready to hire a young person the other day and they didn't even show up on their first day, didn't call or anything. I know it isn't always the case, but, sad to say, we have seen young people do this more and more often.

We'll be adding our purrs to the mix, too, Blizz. I believe Skylar has a good point, and your work history will be the best reference you could have.

Your Daddy is not old. He's barely out of his 40s. Also it's discrimination for an employer not to consider older applicants too. I totally agree with Skylar. Many companies know that older people are more experienced and reliable. We're purring and praying for your Dad.

We're very sorry about what happened. But hiring is up and the economy is getting better (slowly). Your Dad have experience training people and that can be helpful in finding a new job. It stinks they laid him off on a Friday but companies like to improve their quarter numbers even at the cost of long term profits. So your Dad needs to do a wide search for anything he might be good for. I'm sure he has lots of skills that can translate to new positions.

Just tell him to start looking NOW. Not Monday, NOW. You want to get as many interviews as you can before Catmas starts messing up schedules and he can start the new year with a new job.

Well we chatted earlier but I just wanted to say sorry again in your diary. Remember what I told you and listen to your friends here they all have very good advice.

Keep your head up...this might just be the best thing that ever happened to you. You never know.

Oh BLizz and dad, remember God opens a door when one window closes (maybe that is not exactly what it says) watch for that open door and be ready to walk on in to your best job ever.
sending lots of love and prayers to all of you.

Well, meowmy did not work at a job...though raising kids is truly a job and a vocation...for over twenty years, and then after a short course she started a brand new job, just like that.
She is several years older than your Daddy, and now is the longest working aide on her shift...after year and a half.

We know your Daddy does 'portapotties', could your Daddy do some type of maintenance job until the potty season picks up?

We are going to purr and pawyer furry hard to help this have a happy ending.

This be sooo terrible for your dad. And at such a bad time of year. Our dad lost his job when he was 52 and he started his own business. Then he got hired by Lowes when he was 58. There are places on the internet to help peeplz find jobs ( and some that help them even think about a different kind of job that they'd be good at with things they know how to do. We be purring and prayin' that something comes that is not just a job, but something he love to do!

So much love goin' out to yer Dad makes my heart happy : )

He might apply with the City where you live. If they have city parks with events the City has maintenance people who set up the parks with amenities.

Huggs and will keep purrin',

and... apply for unemployment benefits right away! No shame in that! Yer Dad has worked hard! Apply for other help too, food stamps, rent/mortgage assistance. These things are there when there is a time and need for them.

When you go to Human Services or whatever State/Federal branch it is called in your State, remember... they won't offer you information... you tell them you want a list of every benefit/assistance program there is available.

Never give up there is something out there for your Dad.....Mom is so happy she is her own boss being a pet sitter may make her tired, but she continues to have maybe your dad could do something with animals because he is a very loving person and cares...
