Cynthia: Hey, Cat Lovers! I’ve decided that our cats (or dogs, or hamsters, or pet pigs) would buy us a Valentine’s gift if they had opposable thumbs and the ability to use credit cards and the internet.
I mean, think about it… they love us so much. They are so grateful to live in our houses and get free food and sunspots and a life free of predators. I bet if they could, they would shower us with flowers and candy and jewelry and just about everything that had a cute heart on it. I bet –
Marcy: Wait. Is this a post about how to justify buying heart emblazoned crap for yourself for a stupid holiday about love?
Cynthia (icily): Maybe.
Marcy (respectfully): Fine. Continue.
Cynthia: So why not help a kitty out? Use your opposable thumbs. Open up that computer. Take that credit card and purchase a Valentine’s Day gift for you… from… your kitty!
*Cynthia’s Valentine’s Day Dream Scenario*
penelope kitten (squeaking): i luv cindy so much. she saved me from that creepy motel parking lot and now i’m so happy and so well fed and so relaxed. i’m gonna give her the best valentine’s day presents ever.
penelope kiiten: i’d bet she’d really love this necklace with all her kitty’s names on it too. squeak!
*Cynthia’s Valentine’s Day Reality*
Penelope Kitten brings home a dead mouse.
Marcy pukes up a hairball.
Cynthia: Yup. It’s time to take responsibility for our own Valentine’s Day gifts. So, let your cat buy you that cute heart tote or that adorable name necklace. When anyone inquires… just say it was a gift … from your cat!
Marcy: And no one will ever think you are a crazy cat lady. Never ever.
Cynthia, I hope your fantasy Valentine’s Day comes true. Maybe if you put this blog on Freddy’s computer as the screen saver he would subconsciously be persuaded to help the kitties purchase a few of these lovely gifts for you.
Marcy and Penelope, please clean up your fur balls and dead rodents or Cynthia may go on strike.
They’re pretending they can’t hear you. lol. Cats!
“Is this a post about how to justify buying heart emblazoned crap for yourself for a stupid holiday about love?”
I laughed so hard at this post. Well done!
Based on your “reality,” Clarence got me an early Valentine’s gift yesterday, which I – thankfully – cleaned up before stepping in it. I’m thinking the pin might be a nicer idea. I LOVE (heh, no pun intended) the heart t-shirt, too! Do you think it counts if I sit Mr. W on my lap while I order some stuff??
Yes. It counts. And, thank you! 🙂
PK…and where did you find that mouse, Missy?
uh… not saying.
squeak, penelope kitten
Shwa used to always leave me gifts out in the backyard. I’m actually think I want each of the items you posted. That necklace would look great with all of the kitties’ names on them. Im sure Marcy would make sure hers was in the center.
You know her too well!
The heart artwork is so simple but so sentimental and sweet. I love it. And the magnet is another favorite.
Georgie will probably rip apart her new toy as a gift to me. Then I’ll have the privilege of cleaning up the stuffing. I grabbed her two cookies from our local pet bakery. One is a ‘love bug’ (pink and red caterpillar), and the other is a ‘love monster.’ Mostly because she is equal parts cuddle bug and holy terror. And we love her all the more for it.
Ahahahah – Georgie sounds like a real character! Oh gosh – we all have the privilege of cleaning up after our fuzzy monsters, don’t we?! Freddy told me today that I am Penelope’s employee. Ha. More like an unpaid intern.
