THE ECONOMIC STIMULUS PACKAGE - WHAT'S IN IT FOR CATS?

The multi-billion dollar stimulus package, intended to help resurrect the economy that was basically screwed up by short-sighted (and greedy) humans, was signed into law by President Obama on Tuesday.

Now this is all fine and good, but what I really want to know is… how will the stimulus package be of benefit to us cats? Needless to say, I don’t have time to paw through the thousand-plus pages of details, so I thought I’d pose a few question to my kitty friends in the blogosphere, who may have some answers.

Will the stimulus package…

  • Put more (and tastier) cat food in our bowls?
  • Provide us with better health care coverage for trips to the hated vet?
  • Help our humans find jobs so we can take extra long naps while they’re at work?
  • Put more money in our humans’ pockets so they can spend it on us?
  • Improve our schools so children can learn more about cats?
  • Help American workers build better and safer cat toys?
  • Help decrease global warming and increase global purring?
  • Help reduce our dependence on foreign catnip?

If anyone has the answers to some or all of these questions, please let me know. Meanwhile, let’s hope the stimulus package proves helpful to cats, humans, and all other living things.

I don't know what good is in it for us kitties, but I know that our California governator wants to start taxing the vet visits! Now we hate going to the vet, but tax going? Just think of all those kitties that won't be able to afford to get the vet care when they need it. It just makes me want to Hiss & Scratch!
