Crush Your Cat's Head Friday-A Tip For Obama

Dear President Obama

I know you have a big job ahead of you involving all sorts of mess and chaos. I sorta know what you are facing as I have a cat and a new kitten who simply cannot get along. The kitten is impulsive, out of control, lacking in subtlety and restraint, and defiant. Not at all dissimilar to many people you will have to interact with in the near future. I contrast the first born cat is grumpy, unforgiving, completely lacking in humor and inflexible. Also eerily alike various individuals you will shortly be spending time with.

My cats do not get along under any circumstances...except when one very special ingredient is added to the interaction. This addition is so exceptional and potent that it makes even the most curmudgeonly cat soften. So transforming and influential it makes even the very insanest kitten focus.

I thought that this magical element might help you with your very challenging ambitions.

What I want to share with you is the power of....TUNA!

No hissing. No claws. No blood. Just a common love of the fish.

Well...until the little shit gets too close to her side of the plate.

In case you haven't got the news through the newsletter or my recent Twitter the 2009 Iconic Women By Yoshi Calendar is now available for sale. Same price as last year-$18.95

Check it out!

Tuna is the answer? Who knew?! You'll probably get a Nobel Peace Prize for this!! ;)

Nothing like a can of fish to smooth everything over. Simple and brilliant.

Hee. Cute.

Reminds me of a VERY old joke: what's the difference between a piano and a fish?
Answer: You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish!!

OK, maybe not so funny after all.

Glad there is at least a little peace among kitties!! :)

Ah, that's the reason Marie Antoinette ended up at the guillotine. She should've said "give them TUNA" not "give them CAKE!" Obviously cake isn't as powerful as tuna in making people happy!

Take the breaks where you find them. Tuna seems to work.

Just waiting for my calendar. :-)

That looks a bit like my boys used to when one those plate sized Texas donuts were around!


Squirl said...

Got my calendar and it's wonderful. Can't wait for 2009 when I can start using it. Of course, I'm still very much enjoying the rest of Yoshi 2008.

Hahahahaha my word ver is replate. Is that the cats asking you to refill the tuna plate?

kalki said...

Sent you an email, but THANK YOU for the calendar and other goodies! I'm totally ready for 2009 now.

Maia said...

Perhaps the same old price as last year... shame it's not the same exchange as last year! :( I'll still love my 2009 Yoshi, though.

Thanks Kranki!

Hey there! I haven't checked your blog out in the longest time, and when I pop in I find a stranger! DEXTER! OMG he is the cutest. I've always thought Yoshi was adorable, but damn! Dexter!!

I have to tell you, I have two cats now and when we introduced the second kitten to the first, who was about 3 at the time, there was the exact same dynamic. Kitty1 hated Kitty2 with the red-hot passion of a thousand suns. I was so guilt-ridden.

Today, 3 years later, they sit in the middle of the living room and groom each other. It will happen for you too. They'll calm down. Life will go on. Enjoy him, he's too damned cute.

Happy Holidays Kranki, thinking of you and Yoshi and now Dexter too.

Kranki, I know you've been busy with the calendar and all, but I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas!
