A Cat Called Percy, A Bat as a Gift, and a Home Business Question

Published on 8/19/2013

Meet Percy the cat, a large, well-behaved, affectionate cat with the markings of a jaguar and deep brown eyes.

He once had a long tail proudly swishing back and forth as he sauntered towards you to get his belly scratched.

Then one day, in a matter of a microsecond, his proud tail was caught in a car door.  He screamed, thrashed and finally pulled his tail out with his twists and lunges.

There was a definite kink at the last four inches of his tail, the site where his tail had obviously been broken.

He seemed to eat normally and still showed affection even with a droopy tail … until the unthinkable happened … his tail fell off!  All his bushy brown striped tail except for about five inches which protruded from his back like a bedraggled whisk broom!

Fortunately, my niece who is an animal technologist at a veterinarian's clinic, examined the stub and realized there was infection and a small bone visible. It would always be an open sore which could eventually paralyze him as his nerves continued to atrophy.

She recommended surgery to remove the visible bone and resew a flap of skin so that the end would scar and heal properly. No more infection and potentially a long life for Percy.

The cost to do this 30 minute surgery was estimated to be $763 including a few materials.

Should we or should we not pay this price for a cat? The coyotes could get him the next week or some speeding car on the highway.

What were the benefits to negate a stupid accident and perhaps sustain a happy, healthy, care-free  life for Percy?

All emotional reasons of why we wanted Percy to be home.  And so we paid the cost.

Well, this brought up an interesting home business question.

Why do people start a home business and pay a one-time $200 for a distributor's license in order to make money and enjoy the opportunity to live their dreams?

Worries, stress, accidents, massive changes will happen.  But the right home business can alleviate some of the pain and uncertainty and sustain a more comfortable future.

But you have to make the decision that the cut is worth it with the right team and company. Should you or should you not?

What is the price you pay for staying poor and hurt? What price are you willing to pay to move ahead into the Internet future? Either way you pay the toll price.

What about the bat as a gift? The very same morning that Percy was put into his cage and taken to the clinic, he proudly brought a dead bat and dropped it on the bedroom carpet as a thank you gift!

I think our home business can do better.

PS. I wanted to copy and paste a picture of Percy but I can't...he looks so unhappy but I know he will be alright.
