Highway Robbery, I Tells Ya…

Back in my day, you could get three unidentifiable food pellets for a nickel, and just look how much it costs now for one! You’ll have to do seo services all day just to eat! Why, I’ve a good mind to (grumble, grumble)…

  23. 8-O

  24. Do we really want to know? Some questions should remain unanswered.

  25. fleurdamour says:

    Les Mouserables

  26. Awesome!!!!!!!

  27. Extorbitant!

  28. OMG that is soooo awesome!!!! :D :D

  29. More cute pawseez! I am being slain left right and centre today!

  30. Do you think if our hands were covered with more fur they’d be cute too? I don’t care who the paw belongs to,big or small (think how cute a big beary paw is) paws are cute!

  31. Haha! I lof eet! :-D

  32. Hummm… maybe I should start charging my cats for their treats.

  33. I know that wouldn’t work with my two critters. I’m just grateful they allow me to live here and cater to their every need. :)

  34. Sheesh, me too. Every time I just walk into the kitchen, she follows me, sits politely, and meows at her treat cabinet. What does she think I am, made of treat money?!

  35. good luck with that……

  36. fleurdamour says:

    Cats? No, I think if you tried to charge, they’d just rob you.

  37. Okay, I’m not a rodent fan (I actually have a phobia of them), but this was completely adorable! I approve!

  38. I actually share your phobia but thankfully that doesn’t keep me from appreciating how adorable they look. It’s just that in my dreams, they are never adorable or small or sweet. Been having those terrible rattie dreams since I can remember. *shoulder shrug*

  39. So tiny! I’ve never understood how mice aren’t considered universally cute. Ratties too.

  40. Yes I know, a lot of people don’t like mice and rats but they like squirrels, and what are squirrels, they are rats with bushy tails and good PR.

  41. I know, right? Cause a bubonic plague or two, and your whole species is vilified.

  42. It was FLEAS who caused the plague.

  43. William Johnson says:

    Well if you want to get pedantic, it was bacteria (Yersinia pestis) who caused the plague, and the bacteria were carried by fleas, and the fleas were carried by rats. After that I think it was turtles all the way down, or something like that.

    May I assume from the details here, that each of you is already familiar with
    Ellen de G’s bit about having a telephone chat with God and her enquiring of Him, as to the logic behind the creation of mosquitos, flies and ants????

  46. I think that’s a rat.
