I would say they all have rewarding elements. You can look up "top companies hiring for lab assistant jobs" on Glassdoor which can help narrow it down!

I think it depends on your goals / work style, but they are all rewarding in their own way. No matter where you work, you are helping people!

My cat has been peeing and pooping outside of the box lately. He used to go mostly outside, but the cold/ice has made that hard. I've made a vet appt to make sure there isn't a medical reason (pain, UTI, etc.). In the meantime, I'm trying: adding another litter box; using a low entry litter box with puppy pads since he likes to pee on pillows/blankets; Feliway; softer litter for his feet; and pain supplements in case he has discomfort. Any other ideas?
