A word from the cats

As you can see, Buddy cat is very angry that the dogs are trying to balance the household budget on the backs of the cats, we are going to get our side of the story on the table, or on the bed as the case may be. 

Mini Cat is not very angry, her status as the spoiled cat in the house is not in danger.   She has the best bed, and she has the best food.  As you can see below, Mini cat gets a gourmet choice at every meal.   It is the only way to keep the birds safe from her attacks.   The sun is shining on her coat and it makes her look like she is silver, fear not, she is solid black with only a tiny spot of white on her chest. 
Mini points out that we can not cut the household budget by reducing her food choices.   She will simply add birds to the menu.   Buddy does not care much for the great outdoors, he likes the indoors and the soft beds. 
Buddy Cat is the quiet one in the house, quiet until midnight that is.   Buddy has to talk to us all about midnight or one in the morning when he wants attention and no one is awake to pet him.    So he wakes someone up to get his attention, then he goes back to sleep.    He is spoiled too. 

At least we dogs just sleep quietly all night, we only bark if there is a real disturbance outside.   Then we do our job as watch dogs.    

Meanwhile, we still have not balanced the budget.   There was a wonderful suggestion that treats be cut back with a substitution of cake from the day old cake store instead of treats.    We tried that one, but the day old cake did not get any older.   The humans brought it home and promptly make it disappear.   The good news is that the day old cake store is the same store that sells day old bread.   So we ended up with bread treats and the human ended up with day old cake.

So we are still trying to balance our budget.

  3. Well since you're outside already, you could always deliver newspapers! :) Just don't let the puppies get to them first!

  4. DOGS RULE!!!


  5. Buddy cat looks mean! I hope he isn't mean to you very often!

    Budget idea: Cats bring in food items.

  6. We did not know that you had so many kitties, they are all beautiful.

  7. Hi Mogley,

    Glad Buddy cat lives in y'alls house and not mine! He looks vicious!

    I still say the only fair way to balance the budget and end up with a surplus is to take all of the suggestions...especially the one where the Humans read the newspaper on line.

    Remind the Humans that they'll need the savings to pay for the increased price of gas needed to go to the vet and dog park.

    Y'all come by now,

  8. I'm thinking Buddy may be a pretty tough negotiator--I wouldn't make eye contact with him during budget talks! :-))

  9. Buddy looks very very angry. Don't mess with him!

  10. If Mini Cat is encouraged to hunt, you could balance the budget by making feathered hats, scarves, dog collars, cat collars, etc.. and sell them on the internet. It would be a good marketing scheme to have Mini Cat advertising feathered goods!

  11. You could always eat the Khats. (not really, but that might scare the hoomans into buying more dog cookies)
