When the Giving Gets Tough…

December 5, 2014

What’s up with everyone giving gift certificates for Christmas these days? My nana cat says that “folks” have too many things. She often reminds me that when she was a kitten it was a fantastic treat to get a new collar or a new bowl from Santa Claus. Now, if someone wants something, they seem to go out and buy it for themselves! That means that there is nothing on their list for Christmas and we are left to get them a piece of plastic or paper good for an item of their choice. Is that what Christmas has turned into?!

It makes my nana cat very sad and I understand why. When we have everything we want – what is a treat? What joy is there in giving a gift card or gift certificate? It’s not fun to wrap with pretty paper! That’s for sure. Sadness.

In the meantime – to make me, your beloved Moire, feel better – please stop by MPA and pick up a gift certificate for someone you love.

Fondest Regards,






Moire The Cat

I am a cat. A cat that has done more, seen more, and been more than most men will ever know. My pedigree is defined by modest lineage but I have risen to be one of the finest. One of the most humble, modest, handsome, intelligent, regal, charming, and cunning felines you may ever meet. I often have 'run-ins' with the MPA tight-wad, fun-hater COO, Justin over such things as spa visits and luxury grooming. Having a cat with the skills I possess is not in-expensive. I don't come with a manual and there is no 'figuring me out'. I write a weekly column called "ASK MOIRE" where my faithful readership gets advice and suggestions for a healthy, more balanced life by sending questions to this email address: MOIRE@ASKMPA.COM
