Greeting Card Store to Open
Catron County is about to have it’s first ever greeting cards store for cats.
Tiger and Kat Lyons announced on April that they are currently looking for a store-front along Highway 32 to open their new exciting concept in greeting cards— namely a store where cats can buy cards for their owners and, one supposes, other cats.
“I’ve never once seen a cat in a greeting card store,” said Tiger (who insists he was not named for the famous golfer, but who had the name first). “I’m pretty sure there’s a need here that no one is addressing.” It’s hard to argue with logic like that.
Tiger continued, “My Kat, of course, loves cats, you see, so she’s writing the cards. We also wanted a place that was central to everyone, so that means we want to find a spot on the highway somewhere so we’re easy to get to. That’s hard out here. And we figure the mountain lions and the bobcats might want to stop by, too...we have to keep our market in mind.”
Tiger handed me a stack of cards. Expected bestsellers include sentiments such as:
‘You are an almost adequate owner.’
‘I will run away if you don’t feed me more tuna.’
‘I promise I’ll make pretty sure you’re dead before I eat you.’
‘If you want to hunt mice so much why don’t you do it yourself.’
‘No, I don’t love you—your lap is warm, so sit still.’
‘If you wanted a pet that listened to you, you should have gotten a dog.’
‘The fish bowl’s been empty all day—what do you mean there were fish?’
‘The dog did it.’
