Letter To Management
December 1, 2017
While searching Facebook the other day, we saw this.
“Belinda D: I’d never do well there. I would make a treat belt and walk around all day.”
For pete’s sake, hurry and hire this woman before she gets away! We think this is a FANTASTIC idea and that she would be a great addition to our staff here. We don’t know how she came up with this invention, but we want to be the first to try it out. We picture a belt with turkey legs and chicken hanging down that she can just grab and flick into our enclosures.
And on rainy days, she could use a refrigerated ice cream truck (picture below) so that neither she nor the treats get wet. And the music playing could be “Soft Kitty” – although when driving near King Joseph or Queen Nikita it would have to be changed to some royal trumpet fanfare.
What a wonderful thing it would be to get treats between breakfast and the end of day. I mean, heaven knows cats always want more treats – just ask Zabu, she’ll tell you.
Frankly, we can’t believe no one has thought of this before. Please implement this ASAP

Cat-opoly is a feline frenzy of fun! Buy your favorite cats such as the Tonkinese, the Ragdoll, the Abyssinian, the Sphinx, or the Maine Coon. Land on Catnip and collect everything in the center of the board. Collect Litter Boxes and trade them in for Fish Bones. You may have to pay dog tax to get past the neighborhood bully, a spike collared bulldog, or worst of all, you may fall in the water and be out for three turns. Cat-astrophic!...there's nothing madder than a wet cat! Cat-opoly is great fun for family and friends. A perfect gift for all cat lovers! https://big-cat-rescue.myshopify.com/products/game-cat-opoly Your PURR-chase helps provide cats for the exotic cats at the sanctuary.
