Chats du jour: La toilette
Dear Midwestern store that is not Menards (we'll call you The Farm Store):
I know your store brand kitty litter, TFS kitty litter, is not carried anywhere else but The Farm Store. That's why it has your brand name on it. It would be silly for Wal-Mart to carry something branded with a competitor's name, wouldn't it?
But I'm pretty sure that you do not have a factory somewhere that makes just TFS kitty litter. Actually, I'm positive.
Which is why, when I sent you my email, I asked who manufactured your product, not where I can buy TFS kitty litter.
Because I already know that I can't get TFS brand kitty litter anywhere else but The Farm Store, which happens to be 60 miles from my house. But I suspect that I can get it under another store's brand.
We only got this kitty litter because we were visiting friends near your store and stopped in so SH could buy his 24' inflatable penguin.
Oh yes. We are all about class and sophistication in this house.
So. Let me ask you again: Who makes your kitty litter? This doesn't need to be a big secret because even if you don't tell me, I am not going to drive 120 miles round trip to get TFS litter. I will go to Wal-Mart* instead because Wal-Mart is ten minutes from my house and even though their kitty litter is inferior, I am not that dedicated to the welfare of my cats that I am willing to drive that far to get The Good Litter for them.
* Actually, I might not go to Wal-Mart because SH is boycotting them. Again.
