Nature and Marketing -- Outgrown Your Basket?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Select R.E. WA State: 75200

"Tubby" is a well-loved member of our family that, obviously, lives up to his name. Shortly after this photo was taken, he did gain a bit more room, thanks to his move to the country with the rest of the family.

For help with your next move, call Tubby's "mom." I'm always delighted to be of help for your own growing pains.

Gabrielle, It does look like time to find a new and much larger basket for Tubby.

Hi Gabrielle ~ I love fat cats!  Yours is a pumpkin.

Judy, Gary, Elizabeth: Isn't he just the goofiest cat! And yes, he really is a huge, fat cat! Gary, he still has the little basket ... along with several bigger ones. He likes the little one. Go figure.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gabrielle - Looks like Gary uses the small basket as a pillow basket only.

Marc: lol ... Actually this is "Tubby," but you're right ... it sure just looks like a pillow! Even when he just "sits" in the basket he overflows the sides!

Sash: Pets make such great photo ops, don't they? Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Gay,

I love your ad.  Great marketing.  Poor tubby.  He doesn't look very comfortable but it doesn't seem to bother him.

Hi Gay, this is so cute.  Looks like "kitty next door" has a bigger one!

Hey, Gabrielle - Great entry. Thanks for entering. Good luck with the competition. Maybe they are still stuck in small baskets.

Jenny: Wouldn't you think? He's definitely not the brightest bulb in the pack .... Food is his calling in life, not comfort!

Silvia: The "kitty next door" (Pickles) was about an 8 pound little calico that ruled the household. If she wanted the bigger basket, she got it! Putting those baskets up on the desk was the only way to keep some sort of sanity in the office. If not, they fought like nuts trying to "win" the perfect place in front of the window ... and usually all over my important papers.

Russel: This little contest has been a kick! I have two more ideas stuck in my head, but I can't seem to locate their photos. Darn.
