Funny Cats: February 2009 Archives

I don't know where I saw this ad - I really wish I could remember, if any of you have seen this, please tell me where I got it from. But apparently it was an actual ad that a woman ran.


I thought it was very funny, but a little sad too - the poor kitten was not wanted, luckily the kitten was still young and would find a home.

But if you have a cat that you can't keep for whatever reason, it's never a good idea to give the cat away for free, especially if you are giving them away to strangers. We never like to think about giving away our precious feline friends, and if you do have to give them away, many of us would want to give the cat away for free so as not to be a burden to the person taking the cat.

But something to consider is that when something is given for free, there is less value placed on it, even if it is a living being. There are many cases where kittens were given away and the owner thought she was doing a favor to the kittens and their new owners, but the new owners did hold the kitten's life in high regard. So the kitten was abused or neglected or worse.

Even charging a small amount is better than nothing at all - people who are up to no good or just wanting to 'try out' having a cat are less likely to buy a cat. Also if they are willing to pay for the cat, then they are more likely to take care of the cat.

What to charge? More than $25.00 is best. It's a good number anything lower than that may attract the wrong kind of person to your kitty.

allerica_pictures_of_cats.jpgI have a weird sense of humor - I find things funny, but it has to be absolutely hilarious with no cruelty, obscenity or anything else I might find distasteful. There was something about this story that made me laugh out loud! The Lord works in mysterious ways! Read on, I hope you find it funny too - thanks to Flippy.

A Pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten. He didall this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved a little further forward... the rope broke.

The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight. The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. Nobody had seen a stray kitten.

So, he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it." She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws spread out, and landed right in front of her."
