If This Black Cat Crosses Your Path…


…you might just cash in to the tune of $1,000.

I get e-mails from Moosejaw- the outdoors store- all the time. Most of the time, I just delete them. The copywriting is typically painfully unfunny, and the specials they advertise are not enough to get me into the store. But today I got an e-mail saying:

“Missing Cat! $1000 Reward.

All Illinois customers of Moosejaw. We are helping an employee find her missing cat. This cat is part of the Moosejaw family and he must be found. We need your help.

Bizzer has been missing since March 3rd. He lives in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL on Wolcott and Division. He is a 5 year old fat black cat with white reflective collar that says “I’m Bizzer, I’m not lost.” If you have him or see him, please call 406.531.1812 or 773.573.2614 immediately. THANKS!!!

$1000 Reward if you return him safely. $250 reward if you have information leading to his being found.”

Now, I’m not sure why someone that might “have information leading to his being found” wouldn’t just scoop up the critter and deliver him to Moosejaw forthwith. Is Bizzer a Mob informant or something? Does Moosejaw suspect he is being held by dangerous criminals, people so unscrupulous that they can threaten and intimidate those wishing to return the cat to its rightful owner? Who knows. Anyways, if you have seen Bizzer, give Moosejaw a holla!

Slow news day? Yeah, maybe ;). At the moment, I’m sitting in “George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport” in Houston, TX. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be here, and even more thrilled that my flight home to the Chi has been delayed not once, not twice, but now three times. With any luck I’ll be boarding in the next hour. Now, I’m not blaming the above-mentioned black cat for my travel misfortunes, nor am I blaming George Bush (I believe the airport is named after GB the Elder, not the son, so in this instance, I’ll let it slide ;) ).

Just having a little fun, killing time in the aeropuerto. Can’t wait to get home to Chicago, even if it is 35 degrees.
