The Dreaded Review



The day is finally here. Time for the Annual PurrFurMance Review so I called the mom into our office to go over things with her. So here goes . . .


Quantity of Output: has your purrson posted to your blog daily to give you maximum exposure worldwide and make you famous
Heck no. Needs to improve greatly, my sidebar counter tells it all. I don't think that the mom is going outside of the states to visit and I would like to increase my worldwide traveling. I have discussed what could be done in this area to help the situation.

Quality of Output: are you, as snoopervisor satisfied with your purrsons choice of photos, words: the creativity, imagination, truth, fun, and general interests in your postings
Outstanding! Never uses an unflattering photo or tell secrets. When taking photos the mom always takes at least two to twenty depending on her mood just to make sure that the photo will come out. I will say that when she uses the flashy thing it does get old and I find that I will run away so she must try to not to over shoot. She is also great about not posting embassaring photos of me doing things that I wouldn't want others to see.

Client Pawticipation: does your purrson provide sufficient ways for your fans to contact you and for you to contact them
Set up email account, link lists, and follow blog list. Way to go! Also the mom lets me visit a little each day (well most days) and tries to find a couple of new friends each day that I can visit.

Pawticipation (Part II): does your purrson allow you to take part in fun blog world special events, parties, contests and more
Needs to improve. Know I am missing parties but effort is made. Am a secret paw and been to several parties. I even went to a wedding in the fall and don't miss too many Gotcha Day parties.

Client Satisfaction: are your friends purrlingly contented with what they see and read on your blog
Have not seen any complaints. I try to ask when we make changes (always change things for the holidays) to colors and new set up ask for suggestions if any of my friends see something wrong. This helps a lot.

Overall Rating & Comments & Suggestions for improvements
In the purrrfect world I would blog every day with lots of photos and words. I would visit all my friends on my link list and meet at least five new friends a day to visit. I would also go to every party that was given and adventure there was to go on. OK, enough of the purrrfect words! I think the mom has made an effort to post and visit as much as she can, though some days I think more could be done, and will continue to work with her on this area. She has been trying to make my blog different from her other blog, trying to make it all about things I am up to. On the whole I think she is doing a good job but I always feel, and she always told her own children this, that there is always room to improve.  With that being said I have decided to give her a three paws review making her score a High-.

What a great purrformace review idea. My purson has fallen down on the job too. She says she is doing her best but I don't think so. She needs to improve too.

The Island Cats said...

Gracie, we love you and we give you and your mom 4 paws!!

We've almost got our review done...we hafta get our mom to post it soon!

The Cat Realm said...

ENVY! That's all we can say. We will try and do a review of our maid - we are SURE she will not do too good right now.
Congratulaions Gracie, it seems you got yourself some fairly decent help there!

The Creek Cats said...

We think your mom does a pawsome job! Our mom on the other hand.....her purrfurmance has ben slipping lately!

wildcatwoodscats said...

The mom beans try hard but they is busy with other things too...like taking care of you. We give your mom 4 paws!

Busby and Raymond said...

Looks like your Mom did pretty good. I'm sure glad our Moms don't get to review US!

Purrs, Busby and Ray

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Now that was a very generous review, Gracie. You really do love your mom, don't you! We're glad you're going to keep her and rated her high.

We did our review too.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

My human doesn't do well at all... I gave her a total of four paws down...

One Cats Nip said...

Aww Gracie your so kind and understanding, exactly how I thought you were from all your other posts. Great review!

Brian said...

I think you were really fair to Mom, but I wouldn't expect anything less from you...you're so nice all the time!!!

Elin said...

3 paws, it's great :)

Simba said...

Good for your Mom for getting 3 paws, Even if she didn't help you blog, she still deserves the best review for giving you a forever home.

Mango said...

Your mom must be breakthing a sigh of relief to get such a good performance review. Of course we must always encourage continuous improvement, right?

Slobbers,
Mango

The Crew said...

Your review was very fair, Gracie, considering you've only been blogging a short time.

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, I think that is very fair, Gracie! Your mom does a bang-up job on your bloggie. And no mom has 100% of their time to spend on it -- ever. Mom's have to do other things -- like feeding you and petting you and going out shopping to buy toys and treats and food for you.

It's all about you, Gracie!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

We're in France, Gracie, so visiting us regularly would add international cachet! Maybe? Hopefully?

Nicely done review.

Shadow / Molly said...

Dat seems to be a gud grade fer da beans (so far of the reviews we've seen). We is finkin da mom may get a one paw from us, but we has to sit and discuss it first. *sigh*

Ginger Jasper said...

Thats a very fair review and I think your mum does good.. Hugs GJ x

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a good review you have given your mum. Well done to her.
You said you would like to exchange Christmas cards but were worried about the cost of the postage from the UK. Don't worry. The majority of our cards go to the US and Canada and mum said she will help us pay for the stamps. If you want to exchange, let us know.

Furkidsmom said...

We think your Mom does a good job! We would all like to visit more but the Moms get busy sometimes.

The Monkeys said...

We are definitely satisfied and we give you both 4 paws!

Alasandra said...

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Sweet Praline said...

Looks like your mom got a purrty pawsitive review.

Cory said...

Nice work on the review for your mom!

Jonesie says she does not want to give up her Thursday in the Garden post because she says she is thankful for it...and gardening produces the food that goes on the table. So she says she's going for it.

Gattina said...

With a little effort your mom will become the perfect cat blogger ! I started with a cat blog, then suddenly I wrote about some travels and then I started to love photography and I had to split my blog into 3 ! The cats, the travels, the photos, and the one where I write whatever goes through my head.
Now I am retired, but a full time blogger, I love it ! my computer is my window to the world ! And I know now cats of all over the world too. And you know what ? they are all the same ! wherever they live ! we humans are poor cat servants, butlers, or slaves !

Karen Jo said...

You gave your Mom a very fair review, Gracie. It think she is doing a great job, but there is always room for improvement.

Catline Crew said...

We think you mom does a great job. Our mom won't let us do a performance review because she would be too embarrassed. She just figured out how to do a blogroll so she can find her way back to you.

The Kitty Krew said...

That was a pretty good review, Gracie! We need to do ours on The Mommy this weekend, she might get lucky and get a fair score...

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew
