Dear Ms. Maria Khaltunin,

I would like to enthusiastically apply for a job as cat wrangler at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.  Only recently did I learn of the formidable feline population at the Museum and of your efforts to care for them, and I would love to be a part of such a worthy endeavor.  I have always loved cats, and creatures that dwell in unconventional structures.  I have a pet cat of my own, Slash, who, no doubt, would be right at home in The Hermitage, even possibly becoming a ringleader of one of the many factions within the museum population (a benevolent leader, of course.)  Aside from being a cat owner myself, I have worked in the past with autistic children and therefore am good interacting with small, unpredictable forces of energy.  I am hardworking, intelligent, and greatly enjoy solitary work –– all things considered, I can see no position I am better suited for.  I do not, as of this moment, live in Russia, nor do I speak any Russian, but I am willing to relocate for this job and greatly enjoy learning new languages.  I have one friend high up in the Russian government, who would be glad to vouch for me.

My CV is attached.

Also, please do check out the YouTube Video, “Henri 2: Paw de Deux,” which has been making the rounds here in the States.
