December 12, 2008 By Fausta Would you spend $535 on a doggie stairs? My latest post, Would you spend $535 on a doggie stairs? is up at LadyBlog. I believe I’ve found the one item that for the life of me I can’t figure out why anyone would buy. Share on Facebook
Given that ole Fido seems perfectly content sleeping on the floor, is it really such a hardship that $500+ stairs are needed to get him into the bed?
Here’s a thought: Lower the damn bed! Or get Rover his own!
Pat Patterson says
As my now deceased cat aged he could no longer jump up on my bed, the one he wasn’t allowed on. So I decided to “help” him get down(up) by arranging some old school texts. He trod on RR Palmer’s A History of the Modern World, Halliwell’s Film Companion, a first edition Oxford Latin Dictionary and of course a Better Homes and Garden book on how to kill any plant in your garden. He liked the last for some reason and would always do the cat equivalent of browsing before continuing his trek.
I figure that roughly the four books cost about $600 and if I really needed to use them, in spite of a couple years of Siamese cat hairs, I could.
Don’t you know that Bush and Rove designed those thicker mattresses so that people would have to buy doggie stairs? They are all made by Halliburton. As a result no one can afford to make mortgage payments and a climate of fear has overtaken the land, forcing poor Chicago politicians to sell Senate seats.
I’m working on being a troofer. How am I doing?
You’re well on your way, Expat!
Pat, no Janson’s History of Art?
E, let him have his own.
Pat Patterson says
No, I have the guilty pleasure of having a very nice copy of Janson’s which I thumb through constantly. It serves me well when I need to explain the difference between a step pyramid and a mastaba or if I need to make a reference to pointillism. Don’t laugh these are questions I deal with on a daily basis. Those and where the heck is Waldo?
