Here I am, inspecting the box of Dear Sparkle bookmarks that my human is shipping off to go into goodie bags for the Tribal Blogs Conference in June.
But there is something wrong here! There are 20 fewer bookmarks than the conference humans asked for! My human is sending less because — get this — the postage is cheaper if she uses this small flat rate Priority box and she could not quite fit all of them in there.
Is she saying I am not worth the extra three or four dollars postage? How cheap!
CCL Wendy says
Now, I wouldn’t read anything PURRsonal into this, Sparkle! Do you know how expensive it is to mail things lately? Just think what your Mom can buy for you with the money she has saved!
Cathy Keisha says
Sounds like your human needs some retraining too. Maybe she spent the $$ she saved on more food for you.
Maggie May of The Creek Cats says
We hear ya, Sparkle! Our mom has been cutting back lately too!
The mail service is very expensive ! I wished we could send each other gifts per email !!
This is like the little jingle the preschool teacher taught my kids — “You get what you get and you don’t have a fit.”
Those are truly words to live by.
(But I will be stepping over people’s backs to get one before they run out.)
Oh, dear, humans do strange things. We’d just send them all and send Jan the bill.
Ayla, Iza, and Marley says
Definately she is savin the money for more treats for you. But you might want to remind her of that! They get forgetful…
Sparkle, you are worth every last dime she has! But you shoulda figured out the cheapskate thing after that lame-o Easter stuff.
Hopefully she will use the money she saved on treats for you!
Toby & Leia says
Hoomins are very strange, aren’t they? But they do have some good points. So we have to forgive them their oddnesses.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
When we got a Secret Paw who lived overseas, my Mommeh found out how much monies it cost to send stuff, and guess what? She got a box of that exact size and CRAMMED everything in that. It was all bulgy, and the soft toys were flattened, but she saved a few green papers!
Oh Sparkle YOU are so worth it!

Twenty people are going to be mighty disappointed to not get your bookmark so maybe she’ll send them another way. She’s certainly not cutting corners when it comes to you Sparkle. That’d be unthinkable!
Amy & The House of Cats says
Maybe she is just going to send the last 20 in a regular envelope or something – economical and yet not disapointing the conference folks either. And then that means more money for treats and toys!
That’s okay, your human can just bring the other 20 with her when she comes to the conference.
Sparkle, tell you human how amazing she is for sponsoring the conference and contributing these awesome bookmarks. You have a great human!
Fraidy Cats says
How could she, Sparkle?! You do look miffed. We hope the money your human saved is spent on you.
Flat rate doesn’t do for a first rate kitty!
The publicist has to get off her butt and pack off my rich soaps. They won’t fit in a small box I am afraid…..
Milo and Alfie says
Hmmmm … still, ….. maybe she will spend the extra money on treats for yoo?
Man that sounds like something my human would do. That is so cheap…
You’re definitely worth it! Also, think how disappointed the people who don’t get bookmarks are gonna be.
$3 buys a lot of nit Sparkle!
Cat's Cats says
It’s a rough economy out there Sparkle, your mum is doing her part to curb spending which means even kitties have to tighten their belts 🙂
It just means your mom is very careful in planning how her hard-earned money is spent. Sounds pretty smart to me.
Maybe she will take them when she goes!
Those are great photos of both of you..
Happy Tuesday from ~ Malachi and The Bunch
Max the Quilt Cat says
Sparkle… you are so worth it…. Your bean must have just made a mistake…
Fuzzy Tales says
Yes, we, too, think she’ll use what she saves to buy you treats, Sparkle. Otherwise, why else scrimp like that? 😉
Hannah and Lucy says
Perhaps she is saving up to buy you a really big present Sparkle – or there again you could be right she could just be mean!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Link Bartholomew says
Poor Sparkle. A kitty is always worth the extra $$$. Although my marms doesn’t always agree. She has stopped buying me toys because she says I have too many and they’re a waste of money. YEAH RIGHT.
The Monkeys says
We think our Mom would probably do the same, Sparkle. Hopefully you’ll benefit from the savings!
The Island Cats says
If she uses the money she saves for you, Sparkle, then we’re okay with it…but somehow we don’t think that’s the case.
Well that is the way it goes. If they don’t fit, they don’t ship. So Sparkle, where is our hint as to where the food is hidden?? We want that food. Take care.
Manny and Spunky Doodle says
She’s not too cheap if she bought all those bookmarks to promote your book! Cheer up little cat, she’s just being sensible.
Mr Puddy says
I guess, She save the money to buy you more toys and more treats..Which is Nice !
Dash Kitten says
OOH Sparkle. OH you look SO disappointed :-((
The Poupounette Gang says
She is probably going to be using that extra cash to buy you treats, Sparkle!
