Squeaky the catgood advice from Squeaky

Very Bad Day
8.10.2014

 

Dear Squeaky,

          No offense, but why should I donate to help animals when there are so many children who are in need? 

Sincerely,
Alex

 

Dear Alex,

          Have you ever read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst?  I loooove that book!  It’a all about a little boy who, among other things,  woke up with gum in his hair, lost his best friend, got no dessert for lunch, forgot 16 when he was counting at school, and had to eat lima beans for dinner!  Alex thinks life would be better in Australia, but truth is things like that happen in Australia too!  It’s a great book but Ms. Viorst missed something.  You know the best way to make a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day better?  Cuddle with a purry, furry, never will leave you - even with gum in your hair - friend!  Well-loved and cared for balls of fur like myself are the best cure for all sorts of human ills.  I’ll love you even if you forget 16 AND 17!  I won’t eat your lima beans for you (yuck!) but I’ll be your best friend.  Why should you help needy animals?  Because we are the best examples of unconditional love you can find - even in Australia!

Affectionately,
Squeaks
