My Secret Job

Sure, you guys think I am just some lazy cat sleeping all day with a few timeouts to eat, but you are wrong. I have a full time secret job.

I work for a man named Mark. Mark repairs and replaces screens panels around pools and patios. Each day I try to rip one or more screens here on the Pop’s patio. Not a big rip, but just a little one. Then after some time, Pop has to call Mark to come replace the screen or sections of screen. Yesterday Mark came and replaced three screen panels I had just about destroyed. Mark made $125.00 for the job. I still haven’t figured out my cut yet. I did hear him tell Pop he gives her a discount because my destruction is so dependable.

So see? In these days of so much unemployment, I have a job and as long as I work, so does Mark. We are rebuilding America one panel at a time.

Have a great weekend with your sweeties!

Fred the Cat (The cat who loves you guys!)

Good way to stimulate, Fred. I'm sure POP is grateful. Heh ...

Ah, Fred, you clever one.

My own cat (Sheba) mostly runs up and down the stairs, generating no income for anyone. Also, looking out windows is not super income-raising.

Ah, well. We can't all be so clever, I suppose.

Regards to PoP and Fred,

Now there's a smart cat who does not see an economic downturn.

BTW, Gracie says thank you for all the animal love that she rather specifically felt coming from FL!!

She seems to be ok save for the yucky looking eye and her conehead, which she HATES.

Good work Fred. If you can keep it up I might consider coming to Florida and giving Mark some competition...I can do screens and gardening and cook a gourmet meal for a very reasonable price.

Well, Fred,
Taz contributes to the the well being of the carpet mills, and Wiley... well, Wiley just acts weird. I guess one productive member out of two isn't bad. Probably better odds than in DC.

Hell with a bailout, just give every family a cat, and the economy will be sizzling in no time.

That's very productive of you Fred! We have on occasion ripped teeny tiny holes in screen units ourselves.

I can't decide if I should start tearing screens or repairing them. Either way, I'm on my way to a new productive career. Thanks for the tip, fred. Have a great weekend.

Freddy... you are one-cat stimulus plan. Obama would be so proud of you. PoP and Mr. PoP? Not so much.

Well, that's interesting information. I wonder where the Pussies for Peace have stashed their cut from the furniture manufacturers.....

Fred, I gotta tell ya--while this is a good way to stimulate the economy, you've really got to stop making Pop spend her money on Mark and his screen repairs. Think of all the Cosmic Catnip you're missing out on, thanks to that money going to screens!

hey, Fred--
Good Work!

I'm going to be putting Jake to work soon, aamof. We're getting the porch screened in next week. I'm sure he'll be taking a page from your book in no time at all and I'll get to know the screen-repair people quite well, too.

You are the most patriotic cat I've ever known.

fred, perhaps pop and mark can make it more of a challenge with cat proof screen? i put that on my screen doors so that isaac and sophie couldn't escape when i lived at the apartment. besides, it is a bit more expensive in the short term- so think about how much revenue that would generate :)

My cats mostly contributed to the prosperity of the finished wood products industry, but occasionally took time out to help the carpet layers, too. They're both gone now, and look what happened to the economy.

Anyway Fred, keep up the good work.
