Da BIG bail-out

Tweet: "Okeedokee kitteez... da dadee iz gonna teach us abouts da problemz wit da Amerry-can finanshul market."

Tweet: "So dadee, why iz evfurry one so worried abouts dere green paperz?"

Daddy: "Well Doctor, things are very bad on Wall Street, and on Main Street many beans cannot afford to pay their mortgages or even their winter heating bills."

Tweet: "But dadee, us kitteez needz our toyzez, 'nip, and roastied chix-henz fur Christ-must."

Daddy: "Tweet!!! What did I just tell you about spending more than you have? Never, NEVER spend green papers that you do not have in the bank."

Tweet: (Oh fur heavenz sakee! Likes I havfunt heard dis lesson beforez.)

"Dadee? Iz payin' wit a credit card OK? 'Cuz Delilah haz been uzin' one dat she gots from Chey and Daizy awhile back."

Delilah: "Oh really Uncle Tweety, are you kidding? I am sure that I did no such thing... I would not be irresponsible with Daddy's money. He always tells us not to use credit cards."

Delilah: "In fact, I am quite insulted by your suggestion that I would spend indiscriminately. I will pretend I did not hear that nonsensical remark!"

Tweet: "Dadee? Sumpin' iz up.. I justee feelz it in my floofs."

Delilah: "Now.. where did I put that blasted statement. I know it's here somewhere! I gotta be subtle about this or the jig may be up!"

Delilah: "Aaaaaaaarggggghh! How much does that thing say I spent?!"

Delilah: "You know, I can easily explain this. Mr Paulson said that he was going to bail us out... and now look what happened! We owe him and Mr GM and Mr Ford even more hundreds of green papers. I just don't get it!"

Tweet: " Well catsez... that's it fur sure. Our goose iz cooked. No Santa fur us. How will I evfur explain dis to da Dadee."

Tweet: "Mini? do you tink your momee will let us catsez comez oevfur fur Christ-must dinner if we promisez to bring our own bowlz? Otherwize I tink it's gonna beez stone soup fur us."

We hear you, Dr. T. We have the same problem in our house. Maybe we could start a Christmas soup kitchen for cats and dogs?

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Well you know my credit card was in a fake name so I never have to pay it off...

Daisy said...

Your dad is smart!

Psst.... Delilah! Maybe you should just transfer your credit card balance onto another card. I think that will solve everything!

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh no, you poor ones! Maybe you can support your daddy by bringing in food from the garden. Talking mice, sparrows, insects here...

Dr. Tweety our Mom and Dad gave us the same lecture. Mom said we will have to tighten our belts and ride it out. Since we don't have belts this may be a little difficult. As long as we have food and Temptations we will be just fine!

Delilah, you need a shredder.

Chrissie said...

Dr. T and Ladies, never fear. You can come to my house for Christmas! I'll share all my toys and foods and you'll have a wonderful time. I'll get my mom to cook us a brisket and turn on the fireplace. We have a really big tree, too, and it's all sparkly when it's lit..and there's plenty of room underneath for all of us and our sweethearts!

Delilah, you're so beautiful. I just love to look at your face.

Parker said...

Uh Oh! I hear stone soup is not so nummy!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Uh-oh Delilah, sounds like you are in trouble. We hafn't tried stone soup but it duzn't sound good. We had chick-hen today. There's plenty left if you want to come over and share it.

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

I think you can sign up to be a model, Dr T, and bail out Delilah and efurrybuddy.

SS got a jobbie today, so you can all come over for Christmas.

Mickey's Musings said...

Oh dear!!! Dr Tweety,Mom said MoMo has a great idea!!!! She thinks you are the cutest cat!!!!!!!(and you thought your Mom was silly :o )

This is very deep~!
Not only your dad is very smart, but also you are very clever sitting next to your dadee listening and learning about everything and giving your advice~!
So neat~!

CazzyCazz a.k.a Micz said...

Hiyii Dr. Tweety,
Thank you so much for your visit and your words of comfort and purrss.... Yes, Chubbs is happily up and running now without pain and sufferings. :)

Black Cat said...

Eeeeek, what a coincidence that we both blogged about finances on the same day! I don't blame Delilah. The banks used to bombard us all with invitations to apply for their credit cards! Fortunately I never succumbed. This may have been because according to the microscopic print my annual income is too, well, microscopic, hahaha! Hugs:) xxx

Luv is still free, so effurybody is oooooook.

Mama says that we can grow nip on the patio and it will always be there too!

Alastriona, The Cats and Dogs said...

Delilah, we think that Daisy may not be the best cat to listen to when it comes to credit cards and shopping. We do hope you don't get into too much trouble with the plastic card. We are very sure that you are not old enough to have a credit card, so the credit card company was remiss in issuing you one. Perhaps that is a legal loophole you can use to get out of paying it. We are pretty sure you have to be over 18 (in human years) to get you own credit card. ~S,S & C

The Crew said...

Delilah my face twin, is there any proof that YOU were the one who used the credit card? I mean, does the store have your paw print on file or a picture of you on their security camera or something? If not, then deny, deny, deny!


MaoMao said...

eeksies! Stone soupies doesnt' sound furry yummy. But a great thing about bein a kitty is that we are good at katchin mousies, so we can always put mousies inna stone soupies!

We love all the preshus pickshures of you!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

The Cat Realm said...

We don't really know what green papers are because even before this economic crisis our staff never had any, hahahahahahahahahaha.
That lady form the catsite claimed she'd fixed the word thing - but lots of cats and dogs had difficulties with it!
Nevertheless - we feel like winners already because of all the wonderful support we got from wonderful friends like you guys!!!!
Purrrrs of gratitude

Everycat said...

That was a very interesting lesson Dr Tweety. Yeah Delilah, follow Daisy's suggestion and transfer your balance onto your Dad's card and that'll all be fine. I will send you some spare chikhenz at Christmas if you don't get any. That's assuming we get any!

PS: Excellent photos!

Tybalt said...

Oh, Tweety! It's bad for us, too, but mommy says she will definitely feed you all Christmas dinner if you can't have it at home.

Mommy is good like that. She always puts us furries first.

. . . at least I hope we'll have dinner. With ham. Mommy? Will we?

PB 'n J said...

It's a good lesson to learn Dr. Tweety!! And you guys are all welcome here for dinner anytime!

"Oh My" Don't worry if you go to jail I'll bail you out and you can always teleport here for Christmas Dinner. Don't worry my grandma's cooking she's the best...Hugs Ariel
