Friday Payday!

My Mommie said that since I posed nicely in my new 4th of July holiday outfit, I would not have a fashion shoot for today. This reminded me that I should have gotten paid time and a half for working on a holiday! I only got 8 Temptations for that photo shoot. This means I got shortchanged by FOUR whole Temptations!

When I discussed this with my Mommie my agent, she agreed to pay me for the extra Temptations I earned. I got very excited and gobbled them right up!
I said "Please hurry up! My tummy is grumbly for Temptations!"
Yum-yum! When is the next holiday?!? I am smart to negotiate such a good contract.


Professor Daisy's Tips for Cats: You must always get paid extra Temptations for working on a holiday. Always.

53 Notes for Daisy:

Dragonheart said...

Wow, Daisy, you are really enjoying those Temptations! Great photos!

Thanks for the tip. I wonder if I can negotiate for extra treats if my nails are clipped or my ears on cleaned on a holiday?

Eric and Flynn said...

That's the way it should be. Well done on yer neegosheeating skills.

Parker said...

Very smart negotiating! I have to remember to ask for pay when the camera comes out.

DEBRA said...

Daisy

You are the smartest girl around! See without you we would not know to ask for our fair due when we work extra on holidays!

Fanks!

Caesar and Princess said...

I would do just about anything for Temptations. You have to state your needs from the beginning! Good thing you did that.

Have a happy day Daisy. Hugs to you and Pixie

TT said...

Honey P. Sunshine said...

Daisy, u r so smart!

The Furry Kids said...

Great negotiating. My Momma says next time, try double time, plus 8 hours. That's what they get where she works. If 1 Temptation = 1 Hour, then thats 8 Temptations X 2 + 8 more Temptations. I think that's 24 Temptations! Hmmm, that's a lot of Temptations.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

You do deserve extra Temptations for working on a holiday! Yore mom, er agent, is really nice to agree to yore terms. We loooove Temptations too.

We got our Blond Daisy Magnet and mom putted it on the refrigerator. Yay!

The Cat Realm said...

Smart and cute and beautiful and talented and and and. There is no end to your skills, Daisy.
Very good advice, we will certainly keep that in mind.
By the way: have you been in the movies? You always look so stunning in pictures, we are sure you must have a career in film? Or maybe theater?
These pictures are very wonderful once again!
We are big fans!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

That was very smart Daisy! Obviously your agent won't make that mistake again!

Monty Q. Kat said...

Wait, you get paid to get your picture taken? I need to talk to MomBean!

Forty Paws said...

You go girl!! If you need us to walk a picket line with you at anytime, just holler, OK?

Luf, Us

Tara said...

Very smart Daisy! I will make sure to do the same next time I work on a holiday. I think Kavan and I got short-changed!

David E Maeda said...

I don't know Daisy... If you're successful establishing such rigid labor guidelines, those of us in management might have some financial hardships real quick...

The Meezers said...

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Gretchen said...

I so love Temptations...especially the salmon flavored ones.

jcfloresinc said...

Daisy, you are so smart. We would have never thought of that! We're gonna tell Mom we get paid for every picture clothed or not and double time on holidays! Ha! Thanks for the tip.
Your FL furiends,
Samantha & Tigger

Karen Jo said...

I get what The Furry Kids' Mom gets, too, Daisy. Since you work by the shoot and not hourly, just go for the double pay, I think.

Lux said...

That's a good thing to be aware of, Daisy - I never thought of it! You are so smart!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Thanks for the tip, Daisy!
I'm not sure I would be as dainty as you are, but I'll remember your advice!

Henry Helton said...

I wonder why I don't like temptations since every other kitty seems to love them. Clyde loves them too. I just don't like kitty treats. Just give me tuna.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Good point, Daisy! We should always get all the Temptations we gots comin to us!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Wowy - holiday pay! We learn somethin' new everyday! We has to find a way to git paid fer strollin' - any suggestions? How would we justify our invoice to our beans? Hmmmm....

Max said...

Hey, maybe I should ask to get paid in Tempations instead of cash. the Peopel always spend my money but I sure don't see them eating my crunchy treats...

Kelly Cat said...

I think you should look up holidays and show them to your mom when she hauls out the flashy-box. "Hey mom, July 7 is National Processed Cheese Food Day -- how about some extra Temptations?"
