Holiday Countdown!

K:
It's almost Christmas! I've been collecting coins all year so I could . . .

S: . . . we could spend it on something for Christmas! I wonder how much we saved?


K: It's really MY money - I've done ALL the coin collecting! You're just lucky I'm willing to share it with you! I've worked hard to explore every inch of the house searching for coins (and a few other things) - under the couch (best place to find Daddykitty's pocket droppings), the top of Daddykitty's desk (where he empties his pockets - easy collecting spot), bathroom counter (where Mommakitty empties her pockets), kitchen counter (few coins, but lots of bottle caps - must be worth something).

S: I find coins in our food dish!

K: Hey dingleberry . . . that's where I deposit the coins that I've collected throughout the year! Mommakitty and I have an understanding that once the coins have been properly deposited, then she puts them in the "kitty" can for safe keeping. Daddykitty's not too thrilled about this "finders-keepers" rule, but tough nuggies! Anyhoo . . . Christmas is about GIVING. We've got to figure out what or who to spend it on. Let's think . . . how much do we have to spend . . . 25 cents plus 25 cents equals 50 cents . . . plus another 5 cents equals 30 cents, plus 3 pennies equals . . .



S:
How much are the bottle caps worth?

K: Doh! I just lost count - 25 cents plus 25 cents equals 50 cents . . . plus another 5 cents equals 30 cents, plus 3 pennies equals . . .






K:
Mommakitty helped me sort it all into little piles. Can you tell how much I collected? What do you think I . . . WE . . . should spend it on?


S: Blogger Problems? Some of you have switched to the "beta" version of Blogger and we've heard there are problems with leaving comments. We're still on the original version and haven't suffered any problems...yet.

K: If YOU are having problems receiving comments, try switching your comments settings to accept comments from ANYONE - sounds scary, but wouldn't you rather get comments from a few weirdos than no comments at all! When you select "other" or "anonymous," then you will be prompted to type in your name and web / blog address.

S: So far WE aren't having any problems - that we know of. If you can't send us a comment, please email us (email linky in sidebar).

You're very smart to collect money! I say you should buy yourselves some new treats and maybe a new toy. Kaze just deposits trash into our food bowl. She's really weird.

I think Patches over at the Calico Girls was doing some financial consulting. You might want to go inquire if she's still doing this sort of work!

Well, if you don't get your Mom and Dad something, maybe you should sponsor a less fortunate cat at Best Friends or donate to Meezer Rescue.

Nip, nip and nip. Always buy nip. You can never have enough nip.

Hmmm...maybe I should start collecting money. Then I might be able to buy my own computer since the Mom won't buy me one.

You have a bunch of money there. Maybe you could buy something nice for Mommykitty and Daddykitty. Or some nip.

Oh, so those round things are money! That's good to know. Looks like you've collected a lot! I agree with Junior - those would be good causes to donate to!

Ginger said...

You look like you may possibly have eleventy billion dollars -- woot!

George, Tipper, Max & Misty said...

Gosh, you guys must be squillionaires with all that money...plus bottlecaps too! I'd buy myself a feather-butt mousie if I had some money, or maybe give it to the shelter I was adopted from.

Wow! That's a lot of loot! I can see why Cats don't usually fuss over it. It isn't edible and we can't carry it around.

BTW, blogger seems to be behaving today, so I'm getting in as many comments as I can before it acts up again, hee hee.
