Look, Precious! A special on string!
Blog Guy, you wrote recently that they’re starting to use cats for security jobs. Are other new uses being found for cats?
Yes indeed. Many people have started using their cats to do their grocery shopping.
Wait a minute. What do the supermarkets think of that trend?
They LOVE it! Now they can build stores with ceilings just two feet off the ground. In the Midwest, Cats ‘n’ Carts is the fastest-growing supermarket chain!
And there’s absolutely no downside?
Well, naturally some small compromises are required. You have to be prepared to have your cat bring home whatever he feels like getting, whenever he feels like getting it.
I can live with that. Anything else?
Yes. Most cats are hopeless with coupons.
