Sister Saturday with Zoe the Bargain Hunter

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
I’ll admit it, I’m late to the game, the bargain hunting game that is.  Often times one of my sisters, and sometimes even Brian, help my Mom read the paper on Sunday. Sorting out the colorful ads seems to be an important task and now I think I get it. Look at all these pretty things, they are nice and slick and amazingly comfy.  I could get used to this shopping thing.  I wonder if Brain will loan me his credit card?  Nah, I didn’t think so either.

Okay, maybe I don’t totally understand these ads.  The one for World Market says 25% Off and 30% Off, but it doesn’t say off of what.  Does that really mean if you buy something and it is 25% Off that they chop 1/4 of it off?  I don’t think that would be very useful at all. I know I sure wouldn’t want to buy some cat food and get 30% less of it. Well, the ads are pretty comfy anyways, even if part of me is 50% Off.

Tomorrow is Sunday again so maybe I’ll hop back up on the couch and help Mom with the ads again.  Maybe she’ll explain the fascination to me.  Okay, snack time it is so I’ll catch ya soon. Have a fun Saturday everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

My human does most of her shopping online, but before she hits the buy button, she always searches for online coupons!

We wonder about stuff like that too. At least the ads are comfy!

Good job Sister Zoe, reading those ads. You just never know when you are going to find a good deal.
Hope you made it through the storm all right. We still have electric so we are pretty good. Lots of ice and now it is snowing. So just where is Spring.
Hope you all are doing alright.

Ah, but what if it is 30% off and on sale? Can something be off and on at the same time?

My kitties love to read the Sunday paper with Mom. They make a total mess out of it, but they have fun.

Good luck finding some bargains! My Mom clips out grocery store coupons but pretty much does all her other shopping online. I do, however, help Dad read the Sunday paper every week……I keep all the sections he’s read nice and warm for him where he puts them on the floor. It’s the least I can do!

Hugs, Sammy

Zoe let’s go on a shopping spree. Golly what a pretty photo.
Yes we have about 1 ” of sleet/freezing rain on the ground and it has been snowing lightly. Might be a while before this mess thaws.

Did you find any good deals on cat food or treats? We like to help with the Sunday paper as well, mostly with the crossword. Hope to see one of you for selfies tomorrow. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Excellent points, Zoe! Our human remembers when some coupons never expired. Now it seems like you only have a week or two to redeem them. Whatever any of those words mean! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey kitties

We are not good with percents either.
We do agree that ads are comfy to lay on though 🙂

Those percentages are confusing me too. I do the same as you and lie on the ads. They are best for that.

Trouble with those ads is there is nowhere you can click on “buy”!

Zoe, you have too much time on your paws MOL

Zoe, I think you should just focus on finding the adds and pointing out what you like. Let your humans do the paying and the math. I like helping dad with the sports section.

Oh, I TOTALLY agree. These ads can be very deceiving things. Like if you buy a nip mouse for 25% off, does that mean that it comes without ears and a tail? ‘Cause if it does, that’s just a biff bag, for sure. MOUSES!


Katie Kat and Lil Bear

Nana’s (Katiez’ Mom’s) Kitty BiBi thinks ads are too slick… She has to scratch them up before she sits on them. Glad your ads are comfier. Sounds like the sale ads are furry strange. We would not likes a can with only parts of da foods in it either!

Who thinks that cans should just has chicken in them.

Those ads can be very confusing, right Zoe?

We love Cost Plus World Market, but there aren’t any around here.

While we sure like ta help TBT read the daily newspaper by sitting on the parts he shouldnt read, we do love to look at coupons. Not that there are many fer OUR foods, but we like the ones fer chicken what we might get some of as TBT eats it.

Some cats are so good at holding down the newspapers and ads! It’s one of Sam’s favorite things to do as well. 🙂
