Fark linked up news of a new "domestic" cat breed. Named "Ashera," this exotic crossbreeding of two wild cat lines and a domestic line results in what looks to be more a smallish cheetah than a large house cat. Yours for only $22,000.
Little f'er would probably still yak on my carpet.
No Ellen, you can't have one.
eMail this entry!
I already have one and he was free. His name is Garrison, he has stripes not spots(that's ok with me). He will probably cost us $22,000 in the long run.
Actually, because Excel is my biatch, I did some figuring. In the first year of his diabetes-ness, he cost us about $12,100. By year 2, that had increased to $19,200, then $26,300. The five year run rate is $40,500.
Note: this doesn't count cleaning supplies, litter, or ruined items about the house (broken, clawed up, etc.)
So, as long as this thing isn't too destructive, eats normal food, and doesn't catch the diabeetus, it'd be cheaper than our 25 pounder...
He may be big, loud, distructive and costly, but he is sweet....and worth all of thousands of dollars that is spent on him.
Like that pet commercial says- There is no such thing as a free pet.
Scott - it is big. Mebbe it'd eat the others and you'd only have one...
Ellen- I will go half-sies with you if you want.
No halfsies. No partsies.
No any part of this. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
