Thursday Thirteen, Edition #37

Thirteen Ways For Me
To Make Money For My Human Pet

1. I could organize a feline harem, rounding up the strays that prowl my neighborhood, and putting them to work on the street corners.

2. I could sell my sister, Isis, off to the highest bidder.

3. I could shave my fur and put it up for auction on eBay.

4. I could set up my own store via Cafe Press and sell Zeus Excuse memorabilia.

5. I could write a novel.

6. I could replicate crop circles in my litter, take photos, and sell them off to the public.

7. I could join the circus as The Amazing Snoring Zeus: Snores so loud, they shake the very fabric of your being!

8. I could tour again with my lounge singer act: Zelvis.

9. I could work as an English interpreter for The Feline Theocracy.

10. I could have my sister work at a local bakery to knead dough with her claws instead of kneading holes in my throne.

11. I could open up an exterminator business for local homes. Bugs don't stand a chance!

12. I could enter the National Spelling Bee and clean house!

13. I could stand at street intersections, with rags in paw, wiping the windshields of cars passing by for donations. I'm sure the very fact that I am willing to get wet for my pet will be more than enough for money to flow.

Hi Zeus - it's been a long time! I can see things haven't changed around here. Still trying to get rid of Isis?

The Gal Herself said...

Zeus, you're not only imaginative, I think it's very generous for you to even consider helping out your human. I completely understand, though, if coming up with 13 ideas left you so tired that you must nap now and may not feel like helping out when you wake up. You are a fine feline, after all, and that's how felines are!

Those are some brilliant ideas for making money. I have considered shaving my cat for aesthetic effect and to start a new trend, but selling the fur on ebay? I like the way you think.

The Meezers or Billy said...

do you really think you can get alot of money for Isis? we would bid 8.34 - that's what Sammy has saved up in his windowsill money collection.

Zeus, why would you want to consider working? Sell Isis for the most amount of money and say you are done with it. I've been working my paws off on that darned website and it still doesn't do as well as the woman wants!

Take it from a writer, you won't make much on the novel idea. A reality which I am horrified about, BUT the kitty litter crop circle is a darn good idea! It could be complete with standing stones!!!!!

I wouldn't buy Isis. But then, I already have 4 sisfurs. I kind of like the crop circle idea, though. Let us know which one(s) you pick to try, Zeus.
your bud Pepi

Oh, we never got the email from the blogothon to pay. How do we pay our pledge?

Saw a bumper sticker that reminded me of your sister:
Isis! Isis! Ra! Ra! Ra!

Crop circles, definetly the crop circles. then you could get your litter sponsored. Think of it, this poop is presented to you commercial free by General Motors.

We are also still waiting for our email from blogathon for how to pay so as to be sure that Zeus gets credited for our donation when we send it. I am pretty mad about it, because Zeus and Marina did such an outstanding job with the blogathon. I don't think the email is ever going to come.

Meezers: We need to keep Isis there long enough to find out what she has to do with the Flea story. I am waiting now for the next installment (with baited fishbreath).

Zeus said...

Please check your junk mail for the email from the blogathon. Many people found the email there when they went to look.

Wow, our English Interpreter? I would think that the perks of your current position, "Missionary to the Polytheistic" would be better.
