Starbuck Saturday
(and Sunday)

Kimo: Did you hear da news? Starbuck's is closing a squillion stores in da USA!

Sabi: NOOOOOOOO! This is like da life blood fer our Mommakitty. Especially during da holidays when they gots Eggnog Lattes.


Kimo: We know that not every bean is a Starbuck's addict fan, but those who are will FREAK OUT!

Sabi: We knows that Skeezix's momma (Da Food Lady) is also dependent on  enamored with this coffee too.

Kimo: And NOW Starbuck's even has FREE WiFi - that means da beans git out of da house more often (leavin' us more time to goof around).

Sabi: Luckily we did some research and founded out that there are no store closures in our town or Skeezix'z town - WHEW!

Kimo: Whut is da werld comin to?!

Oh oh, yoor mom is gonna think my mom is weerd but she really doesn't like starbucks coffee...she sez it does not taste good.

Wow, your gas costs what our gas costs!

My human isn't a big coffee fan and then an evil wicked boss introduced her to chai....(there is $3.72/day cost!)

So long as they don't close her starbucks--but hopefully being so close to Seattle and having TWO in the same center really close to home will save at least one of them!

Well, the one in my building at work appears to still be open - which is good, because I don't have a lot of alternatives in walking distance...

Mom likes lattes at Starbucks, but thinks their coffee is horrible as a stand-alone cup of coffee.

My Mommie got a Flavia machine. She likes to make crazy mixed up drinks with strong coffee, foamy milk and chocolate. And afterwards, there is nothing to clean up!

The Meezers said...

our local one is not closing - only 2 in our county mommy has to have the gingerbread or pumpkin spice lattes in the fall - she says it's the law.

Mom's boy bean is hooked on Starbucks, too.
The hooman VET took The Mom off coffee. She thought she might die from lack of it, but she didn't. We couldn't let her, 'cause she has to type for us.

Oh boy...this is going to be very disturbing for our mommy. She is not quite theaddict she was before she had our blurpy girl growing inside her and couldn't drink it like she used to but she will still be very upset by this news. We sure hope you and Daddykitty and Kiera are all feeling better now.
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

My dad drinks that coffee stuff, but mom gets mad because when she smells it she has an allergic reaction. She's only had a couple of sips in her entire life. Isn't she weird?

Mr. Echo said...

We is losing 2 storrs heer but them is the ones with no drive throo. Frisco Texas has plenty more. Mommy can get hers when she goes to the groshery and she brot home beens for Daddys birthday too. She luvs the mocha lattay but kant haff milk no more after her surjerry. And she is allergick to soy. How horraull, huh?

I'm glad yur peeple are feelin bedder.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Wow, are your mom and Skeezix's mom lucky. They can continue to get their daily fix. Um, their daily coffee.

DaisyMae Maus said...

There are two closing in Chula Vista an' a bunch closing in the San Diego area, but Mom's fine 'cuz she's not a coffee drinker. 'Beans keep givin' Mom gift cards to Starbucks (an' she gives 'em away to fambly members). Mom likes iced an' hot teas, but not coffee.

My pet human is a Peet's Coffee addict. Maybe you could switch if Starbucks leaves your neighborhood.

Max said...

I wouldn't worry too much about the peoples whose favorite coffee crack houses are closing. If they walk 50 more feet, they'll find another one.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Gosh that is aweful to put 12,000 beans out of work in the coffee bean houses! Mommy makes her own iced coffee with Nescafes coffee syrup that you add to milk. Gives her the calseeum she needs for her bones and the kafeen for her buzzer. Get it in the coffee isle at Walmart in a squirt bottle!
Pray you are all better by now...poor little sweet Kiera:)

HotMBC said...

Beans are weird aren't dey? Mommy's adikted to their iced coffees, so we's glad she founded out none of thems heer are closin. Phew!
Purrrrrrs,

Glad your mum can still be an addict. Mum is not into the coffee stuff. But our local addicts will be OK, none of the store will be closing here, which includes one with a drive through.
