Steps away towards the yogurt

It just took us multiple leg gashes a long time to get the message.

Marketing is not exclusively for those with fully operational thumbs.

Along with many, RC Cat yawned not so politely during the Super Bowl commercials until she realized what people were paid for those. So she, Queen of the ruff fluff, has confidently put out her resume with a creative sample:

Her sales pitch begins with an off camera commanding, “NOW!” meow.

(At least we think that’s part of the sketch. She could have been yowling at us to hurry up. Afraid to ask.)

The  opening features a kitchen with an impatient elegant cat.

(RC graciously broke with traditional Regent behavior and to play with the roll…maybe she’ll return to script shortly…Oh, we are ready to continue…)

There’s the sound of a plastic lid being removed.

As a thin silver tray holding a dab of yogurt is placed in front of THE finicky cat, as human voice asks, “How good is it?”

The camera reveals the answer with an approving cat indicating the cleaned silver dish by her side: 

The phrase "I have no words". Note inside Noosa yogurt container. ALL rights reserved. Copyrighted. NO permissions granted

Company using its’ noodles, but not the edible kind. ©

She knew you’d get it. And she’s sure that yogurt will be flying off the grocery shelves.

An aside, she does wish however, they would stop printing those wiggly black lines on her disposable dishes as she keeps thinking those are frozen lizard tails or something.

There have been embarrassing incidents with the thin dish when she tried to stab the lizard tail with her claw.

We shall not discuss it.

Interested companies may contact Staff who will relay Spokescat opportunities.

Be aware that benefits such as catnip bonuses, sunny corner windows, and napping hours must be addressed up front.

She is waving her paw.

We must depart quickly.

And don’t forget to leave an open can of  – Oh, yes, yes. Tributes. We shall tell them.

Can cat food accepted from those who must travel some distance, but yummy blueberry, honey vanilla, or coconut Noosa yogurt from local fans would be an acceptable variation.

A small cooler has been placed by the door for your convenience.

I am RC Cat and I approve this message.

    yes… I agree… that drawings and writing shouldn’t be allowed… also on place mats… who prints a pizza on a placemat what you never can eat?

      Placemat torment never ends! It’s fiendish. Thanks for raising a paw for fair treatment!

    Noosa? Is that truly it? I’m looking for a new yoghurt since my brand decided to change their recipe, and what they produce now is to thick you can stand a spoon upright in it. I’ve never taken product advice from a cat before, but perhaps this is the time. Best regards to the finnicky one.

      That’s been the preferred yogurt of the Realm for a number of years. It used to be one of the healthiest options although other brands have improved. And I’m not a fan of runny yogurt. (Target has the widest flavor assortment and has the brand on sale many times. Watch the dates at Randall’s. And get coupons on line)
      The German also eats a container a day for her occasional delicate tummy – good bacteria works better than the prescribed pills and cheaper, too. So, the animals are showing the way. HA HA. (Did you see the story about the MX Navy rescuing sailors. You know the boat from the area. Coast Guard diverted a tanker to pick them up, but skipper wouldn’t abandon rudderless boat. Margaritas anyone?)
      Thanks for taste testing a comment

        Good grief. I do know the boat. Hadn’t heard a thing about it. On the other hand, it was quite something watching a 42′ cabin cruiser burn to the waterline on the Clear Creek Channel across from Lakewood last week.

        I brought home one container of Noosa (key lime) and gave it a try. It’s good. Very good. I’ll spring for another carton now and see if her highness might be interested.

          (I’ll fight RC for the lime.)
          W thought that was boat burning smell/smoke. Whew – so many stories to catch up on.

    Reminds me of a video I saw on Facebook yesterday of a dog whose water dish had a picture of a bone on the bottom. The poor dog kept trying to grab it with his paw. Poor pup. Not a very good design!

      That poor dog. Isn’t that some form of bullying or pet abuse? HAHA.

        Yes, I definitely felt for the pooch! And no worries about the ‘like’ thing. I’m just putting things up here or there so my website doesn’t disappear into the ether. 🙂

          Still nice to know who’s stopped by and peeked in the windows to see if you’re home? HA HA. (Hope you’re writing and enjoying all the extra time without the pressure of blogging . You are right – WP does nag you if your slot sits idle a bit. Besides we’d miss the mystery of what you’re up to.

    Good cat RC! My vet would like my cats to eat yogurt but they are not having any of it. They don’t like it plain or flavored. Oh well, more for me.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Feb 13 2017 7:59 pm

      You were silver spoon feeding them, right? No dump your head in the container here…unless you are trying eat some without her knowing and to keep her out of it. She is quite brand focused, though. Yogurt does seem to keep her tummy happy…and nobody wants a cat’s tummy unhappy…

        Poor Gracie (new cat) is sick. Cancel everything and go to vet. Since no one, not even the vet, can pill her (remember she’s 7 lbs.), she got an antibiotic injection. She’s running a fever we’re just not sure where the primary infection is. Fingers crossed.


        • philosophermouseofthehedge / Feb 14 2017 10:32 am

          OMG. Hang in there Gracie and give them a clue. Cats and pills do not go together. RC is instructing the realm to send healing thoughts. Fingers and paws crossed

    RC, I can imagine those “flipyodish” moments with the imaginary lizard tails are indeed unfortunate…but one cannot be blamed for random etchings on a device that should provide no distractions towards enjoying one’s meal. Enough said. Submitting a six pack of canned food with the promise that once you hit the big time we’ll remember how you clawed and scratched your way to the top.

      Doctors say one should always step away from work when eating for best results. That includes most annoying designs underneath food. For full enjoyment, no surprises that must be puzzled out.
      Oh, HRH is waving. She insists a grand wave is being sent your way for your kindness.

    Have placed yogurts in cooler by door. Would be happy to be considered as consultant to RC should a business opportunity present itself. Am experienced in thinking outside the yogurt container and can remove foil lids with ease.

      Foil seal remover. Yes, RC Cat is considering job description for the new position. She also hopes you have skills with driving, google maps, and parking close at grocery stores. She is mumbling something about “Must not enjoy eating yogurt.”
      She’ll have her people contact your people.
      Thanks for the cool tributes!

    What a lovely tiara she has, ( ad befits, the Queen, of course!) 🙂



    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Feb 13 2017 8:09 pm

      RC is so pleased you appreciate the finer things in life. Mardi Gras starts this weekend and a tiara might be just what is needed. Thanks for adding a glittery comment

    Why didn’t I hire RC Cat to market my book?
