I've been Jobbed (and Somebody's Gonna Pay)

TW made a promise to me that she won't keep. I think I deserve better.

I've been Jobbed (and Somebody's Gonna Pay)
In the days leading up to my visit to the stabby place, TW received a catalog in the mail from one of the pet supply companies she used to order from a lot. She saw a cat tree on the back cover which was six and a half feet high and made by the company that made my Tree of Pain. She showed me the picture and told me if I was good at the v-e-t, she'd buy it for me. I don't need another cat tree.

Now she says there's no room in the condo for another cat tree. It's the principle of the thing. I don't need one but I was promised one. She didn't think I could be good so she challenged me. I met that challenge head on and now I want what is due me.

I dunno about you; but aside from the few minutes it took them to hunt me down like a dog, I was a model patient. The vet tech didn't even need the long orange gloves. Yeah, there were a few growls and, yeah, Dr. D. had to tell me to stop growling so she could hear my heart but she was neither scratched nor bitten during the exam.

So after reading Monday's post, wouldn't you say Pop was the bad one who shouldn't get a present? I deserve to be rewarded. If I'm not, I'll be writing it in my "Owe Book" and will remember this next April.

Have you ever been jobbed or lied to like this by someone you trust[ed].

You totally got gypped, CK! If I don't come promptly when called, my human pulls out treats - but she doesn't always give them to me, claiming that she does not want to reward bad behavior (i.e., me not coming immediately). That makes no sense.

*gasp* Say it ain't so! Lying to a cat?? Oh that's low! Revenge, CK, seek revenge. Or a lawyer..

Tamago said...

Oh no, that's not fair. You do deserve the reward that's promised!

The Florida Furkids said...

We think you deserve it because she PROMISED you you would have it. What difference does it make if there is no room (TW could get rid of something of HERS) or that you don't need one?

Shocking!!! I bet you can think of all kinds of delicious ways to get even ;)

Robin Mudge said...

It is pretty mean to promise something to a cat and then not deliver. Maybe you should sneak behind TW's back and order something nice for yourself. You were good at the vet, so you deserve it! :)

Oh you for sure deserve that cat tree! From 6 1/2 feet high, you could totally survey your domain so easily!

Brian said...

Hey, a promise is a promise CK and maybe we need to start a petition for you!

The Daily Pip said...

I feel your pain ...and have many a time been promised extra special treats for cooperation at the vet's office. Sounds like you were perfectly behaved to me!

You fur sure oughtta get dat reward CK. Me can't believe TW's tryin' to renigg. Dat ain't right, not right at all. Maybe you could donate an old tree to make room fur da new one.

Luv ya'

Totally unfair, CK! TW has to live up to her promise and get you that cat tree. Saying there's no room is a cheap excuse.

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

That is so wrong, if you were promised a cat tree than let TW toss some of her stuff away and make room for it. If she won't cooperate, you will have to destroy some of her things.

Marty the Manx said...

TW owes you BIG TIME!!!!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Surely your Humans have *some* piece of furniture that could be disposed of to make room for that new tree. I mean, do they really need a dining room table? Whyever can they not eat from nice little trays on their laps?

Jean Neilson said...

I hear ya CK. Mom is always saying, "I'll give you some Island Paradise if you..........(fill in the blanks) Does she feed me these treats? Occasionally but not all the time, when I do something awesome. I often do awesome things and pose but there is no camera flashing...just a wimpy voice telling me I'm cute. Ya, we know that! Geesh.

We were certain we wrote a comment to you on this post, but we don't see it. Sometimes the secretary hits the wrong key on the computer. We think TW better come through for you. Sometimes when our humans promises things it takes them a while to get around to doing it...like ordering stuff. We have our paws crossed for you C.K.
