As a bratty kitty, my job is to sit around all day and look cute. But my human has thought about becoming a genealogist.

You might find a lot and the person doesn’t want to pay you. Just like in the law, services are hard to quantify in terms of value. There are myriad headaches abounding, but for someone willing to face them, it could be lucrative.
