Not a Court Jester

GEORGE

I am upset. Do you see this!!













Now, normally I like Arlo, the human who takes care of Ludwig the cat. He usually does a pretty good job, but this...this is beyond what I can remain silent about.

In case you can't read this, Arlo says to Ludwig, "We keep you around just to see what you'll do next". He's actually telling Ludwig the only reason they keep him is for entertainment value! Can you believe this, friends?

What an insult to all felines everywhere. We cats provide far more to humans than just amusement!

Oh yes, it's fun to chase a flying feather or get a new 'nip ravioli, and that brings smiles to our humans, but we perform other very important jobs. We take care of crucial vermin control, we guard our homes and our families, we are the #1 companion animal in America...why, we were even worshiped as gods back in the good old days!

But most importantly, we give unconditional love to our families and all we ask in return is food, water, shelter and a kind hand to pet us. I think cats have far more value to humans than just being a court jester!

George, I am outraged too! This cartoonist obviously is dellusional, his cat needs to have a little talk with him, or we could send Yao-lin over to straighten him out, he is very outspoken.

This is an outrage. I am not entertaining at all--I love to hide. Does this mean Momma will throw me out?!

I know I can be entertaining, but that is not why mum has me around. At least I don't think so.

This is so very true. I can tell that My Lady has me around for a ton of reasons, not just for entertainment value.

We do not like Arlo any more. Grrr. If I ever meet him, I will put the bitey on him. We are pretty lucky at our house - Momma tells us every day how much we mean to her and thanks us for being in her life. Even when we do naughty stuff. Like pee on the bed. Like what happened this morning. Right before she had to go to work. Um, yeah.

Love,
Tazo

Tsk, tsk, we used to like dis cartoon...we are not clowns fur beans enjoyment, if you skritch us do we not purr. When you feel bad do we not snuggle you and make you feel better. We are not just for amusement. On another note, der is still about 10 pound of turkey left! We did our best but barely put a dent in it...Thanks for stopping by and helping, and Misty, if you'd like to come over tomorrow mom still has whipped cream left and said we could share some. Oh, and yoor brofurs and sisfur are invited too.

What a horrible cartoon! We should start a letter writing campaign!

I am very indignant about that cartoon. Does this mean if we cease to be entertaining we will not have a home any longer?

You are absolutely right! We are worth SO much more than that comic gives us credit for.

Hey, Crew,

Thanks for stopping by Jan's Funny Farm and leaving your guess as to what was in the package.

You're realllllly close, but not quite..... Just a smidge off.

Nice to meet all of you.

Hear, hear! I do not entertain, I am just being myself and if SS finds it entertaining then it's a bonus for her. We kitties are part of the family and we give to humans as much as we receive from them.

Obviously Arlo is confused.
It is the other way around ::shakes head::

Purrrs to all of you

Mommy says we are the soul of our home. So...that cartoonist deserves a poop on his pillow and a lot of emails that he is not funny.

You are completely right! This "comic" guy is way out of his league, I think he better watch out for the bitey coming his way!

I agree with you 100% George. We cats provide a lot of valuable services for our humans. Although I know not all cats are as cuddly as I am, I am a warm ball of purring love. :) My main job is to make my mom happy, and I do it very well. :)
