Really, You Gave Him Money Without Looking in the Box?

Every cat and dog knows humans are facing difficult economic times, but it is more important than ever to have the latest technology.  Even Smutty doesn’t leave home without his HTC Evo.  So bargain hunting for electronics is at an all time high.  With the recent price drop of the HP Touchpad, everyone wants to upgrade for a bottom price.  But, when you have a sales transaction with someone out of their trunk in the parking lot, you really should take the time to open the box and turn the device on so you know it works.

Humans in Spartanburg, S.C. don’t know this.  Recently reported are two incidents of women purchasing a laptop and an iPad from a man in a white car.  The iPad was made of wood and the laptop was made of paper and tape.  The iPad was sold for $180 and the laptop sold for $250.  But they both got real cords in their box of crap.

Smutty is not the smartest cat, but didn’t the weight of the laptop give it away?  Thin and light laptops are not quite that light.  And even though Smutty has no opposable thumbs, he would turn on any product he bought for more than $20.  Before giving a strange man $250.

Well, keeping up with this stuff is tiring, Smutty needs a nap… Yawn.

$35,000 Backpack??

$35,000 backpack
Um, seriously?

Smutty is all about fashion.  Smutty lives and breathes cool.  Smutty is even more of a fashionophile than his human.

BUT, Smutty draws the line at an ugly backpack that is too small to carry your cat to the movies in that costs $35,000.

Unless the leather it is made from comes with a lifetime supply of rib eye and chuck eye steaks, there is no way the skin of a cow (can you say moo?) or any other animal is worth that amount of cash.  Not only that, but from the pics, it looks like it will carry a cell phone, lip gloss and maybe pack of tissue.

I don’t know about you, but my human needs more stuff than that just to walk to the Mountaineer.  It won’t even hold an iPad!

Can we please remember that many families are homeless and starving and there is no way that the sales of this trifiling non-essential are going to shore up the economy.  We need companies and products for mass consumption that will provide living wage jobs so humans can buy important things like gourmet cat food.  Until then, please only design $35,000 cat cushions or cat carry bags.

Smutty is so upset he needs a nap…
