What Do You Mean Mom?

 

Mom can I get you to buy me some Nipits…..pretty please with nip on it?  I’ve told everyone about the benefits of this product and should find out for myself.  Maybe there are side effects my friends should know about.

Shoko, those are not for cats or dogs…they’re for people.  They are licorice and I don’t think you would like the taste and neither would your friends.  Seriously?  Only for peoples?  My friends will think I’m a liar.  Ohhhh, I’m so embarrassed.  You didn’t know Shoko…your friends will understand.  It sounded too good to be true.  What will Einstein think?  He’ll think I’m some kind of weirdo, won’t he?

If you explain to your friends what happened….they’ll understand Shoks.  They visit with you and know how excited you get about something new.  Ok, I’ll explain right away mom.

Friends I have just discovered that Nipits are not made for us cats and dogs but for people.  I know, it is a shame and an obvious oversight that will cost the manufacturer millions.  He has missed the market of us!  Apparently the little discs taste like licorice….yuck!  My friends one day perhaps someone will solve our problems by discovering a remedy for our throat conditions.  I am sorry we can’t sample this product.

      Christy, I feel so bad cause, you’re right, we could really use them. Think of the clear and precise messages we could send on the way to the vet. Mom would know exactly what I thought of her driving and the visit.

    Shoko, don’t be sad… that happens… see we’ve got a box of cookies last christmas… and my dad said they taste interesting, not sweet but a little bit like bbq…. because that were cookies for dogs… and he ate them all and spend a night in the bathroom… Once we will have Nipits for dogs and cats and once we will will have dog cookies for people… I’m sure and I’m sure Albert would agree too :o)

      Your poor dad….a whole night in the bathroom….actually its a wonder he didn’t start barking! Nipits should be pulled from the shelf as we were misled by the advertising.

      Ya, I like that my friends. Call those thingies Licoricette. There would be no mistaking the product for something cats like. I never knew there are goldfish crackers….for peeps or us. We would like them. Unless they’re really made of gold….too hard on the teeth.

    Shoko, it was an honest mistake what with the name and all. What do you think the manufacturer was thinking using that name? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Gee…I thought the manufacturer meant use catnip that’s in the discs to clear up your scratchy throat. He should have called it something else.
    Hugs to all you friends,

    Oh Noes! I was so looking furward to having one of these knowing you were enjoying one at the same time. Well so the nip crumbles. (when it dries out and is best that way anymeow)
    I would never think you are silly or anything other that beautifur and very intelligent. Everyone knows Siamese are the smartest cats and best at communicating. With their people too.
    We will have to search together for something to calm our scratchy throat. How about a NipMargarita on Cinco De Meow? I hope you can some on Sunday to the Campfire. Timmy and I have started making some nice noms and have invited the peppers and a few mariachi bands fur fun
    Cant wait to see you

      All ways,
