Yirmiyahu Minds the Store

Yirmiyahu was a shop cat
Up in Zikhron Ya’akov.
He supervised the people in a clothing store,
And he always wished them “Boker tov.
Yes, he always greeted them with “Boker tov.

Yirmiyahu is, of course, the original Hebrew for the name we know as Jeremiah. Boker tov is Hebrew for “Good morning.”

Yirmiyahu knows that in business, a good atmosphere is vital. He is always careful to give a friendly greeting to customers.

Running a business is a big responsibility. Sometimes Yirmiyahu has to show a bit of fang just to remind people that as friendly as he is, he won’t put up with any nonsense.

Keeping the books straight is a difficult and thankless task, but Yirmiyahu does an impeccable job. Every shekel is accounted for under his careful supervision.

Even a busy working cat has time for a skritch now and then.

Shop cats bring joy to the world.
