Mom’s PurrFurMance Review 2010


Greetings, furriends. The Furry Bambinos decided that I, Padre, as Senior Furry Bambino would be best suited to present Mom’s PurrFurmance Review. However, we did hold a meeting of the minds, and her review is based on input from the five of us Furry Bambinos. We even took Sunny’s and Sky’s recommendations into consideration. They are our current foster kittehs. Without further ado, let’s begin, shall we? a big THANK YOU to Mom Ann of Zoolatry for the nifty graphics!!

This is a picture of what Mom looks like. Yeah, we know, it’s just her hands, but they are the most important part!Just look at those wonderful opposable thumbs! Useful for opening cans of stinky goodness, giving scritches, and helping us blog and visit our furriends.

However, those same hands have given us medications, trimmed our nails, and shoved us into PTU’s to go to the V-E-T.

Exhibit B: The Review Form

Our Review of Mom

Reviewed By: Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, Caramel, and fosters Sunny and Sky

Quantity of Output: 41 posts in 2010.  Hmmm.  Definitely nowhere near daily. Or even weekly, which would be 52 posts for the year. At least this is an improvement over 2009, in which there was a paltry 30 posts for the whole year. Some cats blog that much in a month! In Mom’s defense, the blog was incapacitated for awhile while Daddy’s computer went deaded due to a virus. During that time, both Mom and Dad had to share the laptop. Daddy had to get all his files off his hard drive, wipe the hard drive clean, and then reinstall everything. And THEN Daddy was able to upgrade the bloggie to the new version of WordPress.

Quality of Output: Only one movie produced last year. Pathetic! And it was depicting the reason Meerkat has been grounded for life. Lots of good photos, though.

Pawticipation (Part I): Mom does help us visit as much as she can. However, she does get distracted from helping us to blog and visit, by such lame excuses as “going to work”, “taking care of the fosters”, “sleeping”, “gardening”, “running non-cat related errands”, “bathing”, … You get the idea.

Pawticipation (Part II): Mom does not allow us to purrticipate in as many fun blog events as we would like. See above, under Pawticipation (Part I) for her litany of excuses.

Client Satisfaction: Our furriends are too polite to voice their disgust with the lack of regular blog posts.

Additional Criteria: Dad is Good Cop at Casa de Furry Bambinos, and Mom is Bad Cop. Case in point: Dad plays feather toy with us. Mom trims our toe nails. Dad opens cans of stinky goodness for us most mornings. Mom schedules V-E-T appointments for us. Dad sees to it that we have clean litter boxes daily. Mom shoves medications down our throats.

Mitigating Factors: We would like to add that Mom is liberal with sharing food from her meals. She is also much better at dispensing the treats than Dad is.

Overall Rating: In short, Mom is the “Sue Sylvester” of Casa de Furry Bambinos. Her first name is even Sue. We give Mom a “Low” rating, of two swats. Given that there are seven of us, that amounts to fourteen swats!

Comments and Suggestions for Improvement: Quit sleeping, eating, and gardening, and help us blog more!

We hope to catch up with reading and visiting this weekend. We are curious to hear how other purrsons PurrFurMance Reviews went!

Well, it sounds pretty simple! Our Mommy has no life, and a nifty blog…all your Mom has to do is give up a few things like sleeping and you guys are in like Flynn!

Srsly, we enjoy your posts and your fostering efforts are fantastic.

We enjoy your posts and do hope that there would be more. Poor mom! Must commend your parents’ fostering devotion though. They are doing a great job!

Our Mommeh does not have as much time to visit any more, either. This seems very unfair. Just think of all the time moms could free up simply by eliminating sleep!

Oh, your poor mom. Is she okay? We’re sure she does her best to help you post frequently. Humans just aren’t as perfect as we are.

Oh Dear, your mum does have lots of room for improvement.

While some of our snow meltified during the week, we have gotten snow most of the day today. Mum is going to go out to clear the drive once the Daytoner race is done, but they just crashified now in the last few laps.

Thanks for the hints on drinking. I don’t go near running water and SS has tried ice in water etc, to no avail. Yes, she was taught how to give me subQ by the vet, seeing that I go downhill pretty quickly when there is a run of hot days. I absolutely HATE going to the vet. I get stressed whenever I see the carrier coming off the shelf.

Bambinos! Yer mommeh saved our lives (with the help of yer daddeh, of course). We were itteh bittehs and were nursed back to health at your home after we were rescued. Now were are 11 months old and fat and sassy in our home with our mommeh and daddeh Deb and Paul who adopted us when we were about 3 months old. Yer ‘rents spent nearly 3 months nurturing us through thick and thin. So we give your ‘rents a gazillion points!
Love, Niecy and Trish, the Itteh Bittehs
