Today T.G.I.F. means The Grading Is Fair!!!
I know you know what today is, yes, it’s time for the Annual Purr-Fur-Mance Reviews for our Purrson! I must say, I really don’t have any complaints, but of course I may take this opportunity to point to a few areas that could use a wee bit of improvement. So, let’s get started…
Quantity of Output: I would have to give my Dad 4 paws on this one. We’ve not missed a day posting all year, which is pretty darn impressive in my book. Not only that, but since I have 2 blogs going on I would say there isn’t a problem with quantity at all. Bravo Dad!
Quality of Output: Okay Dad, on this one I gave you a 3. I know, we’ve had some pretty creative posts, especially with our tours of our downtown area, but I have made several creative suggestions that have been totally ignored. Well, I don’t know if the suggestions were ignored or if they just haven’t happened yet. But Dad, when I come up with a good idea you’ve got to pounce on it and then run with it!
Client Pawticipation: Okay Dad, when it comes to providing ways for friends to contact me you must be doing something right. After all, with a couple hundred emails each day I would say contacting me must be purrty easy. Look at all the followers I have on Twitter, over 12,000, I’m quite pleased, and we constantly communicate with each other. So I’m giving you a 4 here also.
Pawticipation (Part II): Dad, it’s really impawtant that I purrticipate in lots of special events, pawties and contests. Unfortunately you’ve came up a bit short here and I can only give you a 3. I know, I know, I have been able to participate in several things, but each month there are things that just go right by…especially contests that others put a lot of time into, the least we could do is play along too. And then there’s #NipClub and #PawPawty on Twitter. Sure, we always put in an appearance, but we need to do more than just hit-n-run on these special events, after all, they do help other critters with their fund raising.
Client Satisfaction: Really Dad, our readers should submit the score here, but since I’m the one doing the review I’ll be giving you a 4 here. We get so many kind and clever comments that I have to say that the “enjoyment” factor must be A-O-K.
Based on your purrformance last year Dad, your total score was 3.6. Overall a very good score. I’m very pleased and I hope you are too. I’ve tried to make some constructive suggestions and I hope you will take them as they are intended. Ya done good Dad, but I know you can do better…
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
🙂 I give your dad 10/10 Brian!
Commie and Blanco said I dont give them enough Tuna or milk so I get 1/10!
but a Mum has to ration the treats!
I agree! You dad is on the honor roll, for sure!
Wow ~ that is a pretty good review! I hope dad got a big pay raise! 🙂
We are very pleased and think you and your Dad do an excellent job.
Wowie! Having da time for a posty everyday….You Dad deserves a scores of 100!

We think your Dad is a purrfect TEN too!!
We started following you when you were doing your "tours" and we just loved them! We were so happy to find you!
Posting EVERY day of the year???? Fuhhget about it!!!! My Mom is soooooooooo not capable of THAT!
Don't know how you do it! You are amazing!
You blog is one of the best in bloggieland!
Your dad got a pretty good review…. you do not want to give him a perfect score even though he deserves it… it might make his head explode hahahaha
bonkbonk and happy week-end
Good review pal. I'd give him 4 paws up on everything cuz you do have a great bloggy – an inspiration for all of us.
We think your Dad does a pawsome job with your blog Brian. We hope you confered with your sisfurs on these marks but it sounded as though they hadn't been consulted.
Remember they outnumber you 4 to 1.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Your dad should take top honors! I mean, everyday we get reminded to adopt cat because we deserve it…and 12,000 followers on twitter? Whoa!
We give him 40 paws from our house!
Excellent review…we give 4 paws for client satisfaction!
Your dad is doing a super duper job!
Your pal, Pip
Well done on Dad's purr-fur-mance review. All in all we are very lucky to have the devoted peeps that we have. I mean if they think enough of us to create a blog…all their indiscretions should be overlooked. This is our first participation in the fun event.
Madi and Mom
Beautiful Brian!! You're such a hard taskmaster! You demand purrfection! Yay!! But seriously – your dad is ACES!!!!! Me and Charlie love your blog!! Yay for you and gorgeous sisters Zoe, Dolly, Gracie and Sascha! Take care
We would give your dad 15 thumbs up…if we had thumbs. Of course, if we had thumbs we could do all of this ourselves….
*off to ponder the usefulness of thumbs*
Clarissa & Co.
I'm thinking it's like 4 paws in each category!
I thinks dat was a purty good review. I mean afteralls, you do blog everyday…..wowzers. Congrats to your Dad and 'secially being ables to multi task 2 blogs and Twitter.
Nice review, Brian. Wow, I don't do things like Twitter an Facebook and so on: it looks like I am missing out a lot!
Oh Brian, I would give your human a perfect score! You guys are the coolest blogger!
Oh, Brian we would give your dad 4's all around…we love you and love your blog. Your dad is a great assistant. Hugs and nose kisses
Brian, your Dad does such a good job, Love your blog. I just might have to hire him. TW hasn't changed my blog in over a week. I will grade her appropriately.
Your Dad is #1 or in this case a #4, as I think hes done a fabulous job! Unlike my Mommy who does not rate a rating this year. Me has showed her your reportcard and told her to pull up her socks!
Yea your Dad does a great job for you.
That's a great review.
Our mom is nervous about her review..
I think your dad does a fabulous job and I for one woulod give him a 10 out of 10. I love coming to your blog.. Well done to your dad.. Hugs GJ xx
I think your dad deserve a ton of paws. !!!!
You guys are better add my 4 paws for him as well !
He done a wonderful job for the whole year… every single day !!!….I think he is amazing !!!!
Brian, you gave your Dad a great review, and let's not forget all the pet awareness issues he helps you with!
Your Dad is ACE!
It looks like you had a very good year!
I'm giving your Daddy a bunch of paws. He works heard for you and your sisters helping you in so many ways. He gets my 4 paws too.
Being fair is also giving credit where credit is due, and you have done that, Brian!
Wow, your dad did so much better than our Jan. He must be amazing to be able to do all that. But you're right, when you make a suggestion, he should pounce!
Congrats to your dad for passing his review.
We think your Dad is doing outstanding….a coupla of 100 emails every day. Holy.cod.
See, our The Mom needs to take a lesson from all the gud bloggers like yoo. Does yer dad offer lessons – we has lots of nip to pay wif…
I think you should give a 4 paw grade for quality. Your dad is super!
Dad got a super score for a super cat helper. I think he deserves it for helping us readers stay aware.
3.6 is a very good score fer a Bein, so Dad has been doing GREAT werk!
Brian, we think your dad does a great job….so we're giving you 4 paws each from us…that's 12 more paws!!
Love the review, seems as though a lot of bloggers are doing that – I'm starting to wonder if I should join in!?
Rudy gives your dad 4 paws up 🙂
Your blog is totally at the top of my list – especially because of the work you do to help cats get adopted. This is so very, very commendable.
For all you folks and animals reading this my blog has stories and information helpful for cat helpers everywhere. Pass it on to your human ‘beans!
I pray that all cat blogosphere kitties stay happy and healthy!
Great review!!!! Your beans do excellent work…
Great review Brian!!! a little constructive criticism never hurts, but….I think your Dad deserves an A++, and I think you are a very lucky boy to have him for your daddy!
Great score! And a great review! Your dad sure has done a wonderful job helping you all (and so many other cats!) this year, and we are glad it is being recognized. 🙂
Brian you and your sisfurs have one of the best blogs EVER. Even if my Human practiced for elebenty hundred years, she could never do such a good job. I hope her poor grade this year inspires her to do better in the coming year. But I sort of doubt it.
Congrats to Brian's Dad! Excellent review! You folks rock! What else can I say?…
That's the best performance we have read so far! Congratulations!
Great review Brian!!! We say four paws up for your dad!! Lots of love, Holly and mom
Your dad does a very good job helping you with your blog Brian, and your excellent report reflects it.
A thoughtful and well deserved review!
