Jimmy, Need A Price Check On A Set Of Firestones

The Canadian Tire store in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada has hired two new associates, Jimmy & Baby. They’re very friendly with the customers, but they WON’T pin on their name badges, they leave fur ON the register, AND…demand to have their bellehs rubbed DURING STORE HOURS!!

Thanks to Amy H. for tracking down the YT link. (C.O. called the store to get some more info but the fellow we spoke to said “No one here at the store has any comment about the cats, OK?” Well! Harrumph! OK then, eh?)

This Is My “No, I DIDN’T Like That” Look, OK?

We think we’re doing them a favor by giving them a bath, with all sorts of warm soapy water, baby talk, (Now who’s the snookums wookums? YOU are), gently toweling them off, and such.

This is a crucial error on our part. The eventual payback is looming, and either we’re gonna get it, or the curtains will.

[Yes, this has the "Impending Doom" tag. -Ed.]

All the best, from Berlin!

Now, What’s This Snow Stuff All About?

These three critters are checking out snow for the first time. First, let’s see what the Toronto Zoo’s Little Polar Bear had to say:

Then let’s travel from The Great White North waaay down south to ‘Bama, where Sophie The Cat decides this snow thing isn’t so bad after all.

And then there’s Gonzo’s first snow day.

Time For Your Caturday Workout

Then again, maybe wait until later today or tonight.

Hey, Rose? Don’t Forget To Re-Charge Your iHobbes™

The latest version of iHobbes© has been having problems charging, as you can see from this first photo.

They tend to become disconnected from their power cord. Make sure you firmly connect the power cord to your iHobbes™ PowerPort™. Once you plug it it, your iHobbes™ perks right up!

“This is my sweet cat Hobbes (aka The Hobbit.) He’s not always super photogenic, poor thing, and in this picture I think he almost doesn’t look real…something about the eyes maybe. He was asleep next to my charger (the first, super adorable pic), then turned and I guess scooted his ear up under the charger (the second, kinda weird pic.) He and I are big fans of CO- we’d love it if he made it on the site!! No lie, I might save it, print it, and frame it.” -Rose F.

Update!

She wasn’t kidding about the framing thing.
