Dollar Cat Days
Well, we might be approaching the dog days of summer rapidly where not only will you sweat so much that you want to bark, but also you can get a dollar hot dog at the ballpark occasionally, but the Cleveland, Ohio USA Animal Protective League is holding dollar cat days instead. That's right, you get a kitty for a dollar! I got my cat at the APL. I picked her because she stuck her paw out of the cage and grabbed my attention. Here's a picture of her the first day I got her:
She's about twice this size now, but bourgeois cat life, instead of digging from garbage cans on the street, will do that. Spending a dollar on a cat is a good deal. The cat will pay dividends in covering your every piece of clothing with cat hair, purring, leaving deposits in the litter box for you to clean every day, meowing, constantly standing on whatever you're working on, lapwarming, scratching up your furniture, and, of course, loving. In fact, here she comes now to remind me that her food dish is empty. That dollar you'll spend at the APL will be the first of many! However, what you get back is priceless! Some people think that cats are aloof, so maybe it depends on the cat, but it's hard for me to imagine a better buddy than my Antigone.*
*OK, maybe one that doesn't chow down her food so fast that she pukes a minute later.**
**Fortunately, she eats it all again, so I don't have to clean it up.***
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google and Amazon plop ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google or Amazon has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). I also track visitors through a Sitemeter counter just to see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
