Rocky's Yard Sale

Humans! I swear!! What is it with them and their mindless consumerism, anyway? I mean, I'm ready to get back to work building my Artsy Catsy business, but these two human artists have accumulated so much STUFF in my corporate office that I was forced to have a yard sale this weekend so I could have room to work. A CEO must have his space, after all!

First I had to make zillions of signs and then prowl all over town to put them up. (I used orange paint so if I splashed myself it would look like just another of my handsome, if I do say so myself, ginger spots.)

Then I had to go through their jam-packed closets and drag out all the clothes they never wear, then haul them out to the yard. Every cent they spend on clothes is a cent they don't spend on Temptations, so out with the clothes!

Just look at this stuff they'd piled up! A kiddie pool? We don't even have a kid!

And what the heck is THIS, I ask you:

What, we don't have enough cats around here? Let me tell you, I stuck a bargain basement cheapo price on this worthless overstuffed fake feline!

I had to drag myself out of my human artist's warm bed at 6 a.m. and start hauling stuff outside, where there was frost on the ground and the temperature was 32 degrees! Then I worked my fuzzy butt off all day long for two whole days ...
adding up sales ...
And making change for an endless parade of shoppers ... And dodging boxes thrown around in the shoppers' frenzy of mindless consumerism ... The only enjoyable part of the day was meeting lots of new people and old friends ... like our good woofie friend, Sassy, and her mom Lois:
Well, that and taking a break or two when the sun finally came out and warmed things up: Then I had to spend my entire Sunday cleaning up the mess and prowling around all over town again to take down all my signs!

Now that this blasted yard sale is over, I've issued a corporate edict that all personnel are to get back to Artsy Catsy business immediately. I expect some productivity, you people and pussies! And no more hoarding useless crap and piling STUFF up in my offices! So get into your cubicles and start cranking out all the new products we've been discussing -- cat Christmas tree ornaments; Santa Cat gourd wreaths; cat-themed placemats and matching napkin rings; kitty grocery bag dispensers; cat charm sunglasses holders for human cars ...

Okay, time for me to go gnaw on our webmaster so maybe I can finally get our ArtsyCatsy.com website up and running ...

It's bad enough they made you snoopervise, much less actually lift a paw!

That looked like a lot of work! I bet you are very tired.

I hope they didn't sell your cat toys!

Monica said...

I'm sorry that you had to do so much work this weekend. It's a good thing that you got that office cleaned out so that everyone can get back to work. I'm looking forward to seeing the new products.

See? This is exactly what I'm afraid of if my mom has a yard sale. After all, what do I care if there's four trillion things clogging up the garage? I'd rather nap!

you are surely inspiring Rocky. and you werk really hard too, wow we was exhausted just readin' yer post ~The FLuffy Tribe

One-Eyed Jack said...

Wow! You were awfully busy! It's a wonder you were able to make it to the party! You must have been exhausted!

We just had a cleanout of my looking-out-the-window perch and bookcase-scratching post room, that my OTW calls HER 'studio'. But they didn't try selling it all. She found out if she actually put things WHERE THEY BELONG she had LOTS of room in there! I've been without one of my rooms for months! Peoples!!

You asked us to update you on what's been going on, well not much here except that Whisper (aka Grumpybutt) had to go to the Bridge at the beginning of September. He got very sick very fast with cancer under his tongue.

And Persephone is now 10 lbs!!! She weighs almost as much as me, and I'm WAY bigger! She was just a few pounds and tiny when she came to live here last year before Christmas, and she was already 10 months old then!!

We're sending purrs to you and your peoples, and we hope they get better soon!

Oh, what a hard day's work that must have been! I'm in awe! I hope you got some extra treats for all that work?

Btw, it looks like adorable woofie Sassy is a Norfolk terrier? What a coincidence, we're living with one here too. He is a bit to energetic for some of us, while others adore him.

What fun!

At least I assume the people enjoyed themselves pawing thru yer stuff! ;-D
