The "Money Cat" Myth

Fascinating! The Canadian Crazy Cat Lady has a post about the male tortoiseshell, which apparent has eldritch powers of monetization. She also has a great photo of the cat, all proud and multicolored.

I still don't have a good picture-- I just got this camera-- but Zooey has the same rusty patches, like a noble barge waiting in a salty bay. She's a girl, so I hope the cat-money powers that be aren't sexist.

Well, just because someone asks to be monetized doesn't mean it comes easily!

I have been looking for Zooey all afternoon, because she'll need to be the face of our monetization empire. But she's turned camera shy!

I'm not surprised. Her childhood was a little troubled-- she arrived on my doorstep as a stray, and we slowly grew to trust each other. Now that she's going to become a wage-earner in our home, I can see why she's nervous. It's the Impostor Syndrome. She doesn't feel like she belongs, sometimes. I reassure her, but we can only take baby steps.

Wait! There she is! Zooey!

Let the monetization begin!
