ANNUAL PURR-FUR-MANCE REVIEW

Maggy here ~ I'm the CEO (Cat Executive Officer) of Zoolatry, Inc., and my partner in crime is Zoey, our COO (Cat Operating Officer).  We've run Zoolatry since early 2007 and feel it's time to review the purr-fur-mance of the ZH who serves as our artist, our imagination, our typist and sometimes (tho not often enough) cleans our litter boxes.

My opinion is that her QUANTITY OF OUTPUT is Two Paws ~ as we've noted 1,828 postings to our site.

QUALITY OF OUTPUT is Four Paws ~ as rated by COO, Zoey, because I like all my silly pictures no matter what they look like!  On the other paw, I, Maggy, CEO, find most of my pictures embarrassing, unflattering and far more fictional-than-factual.  

Moving on to CLIENT PAWTICIPATION, the ZH noted that according to statistics (which she does not believe in) we have had 30,323 visitors and 24,627 comments on Zoolatry.  We humbly ask if that includes spam?  Two Swats here furriends.  We might make green papers for all this work if we could up those numbers...  P.S. from Zoey: she really falls way low, I mean off the charts furriends, when it comes to visiting with many of you.  This is most disturbing to me and Mags as when we do stop by we see amazing photographs, humorous and witty writing, and just lots and lots of fantastic stuff on your blogs.  Management is demanding immediate attention to this issue and improvement is mandatory.  And that includes all the wonderful woofies we know.

As for CLIENT SATISFACTION, I, Zoey, am noting that the ZH has often received high marks from clients (a/k/a: other bloggers) for whom we do photo-art, in fact her files are now bulging with over 5,000 new headers, birthday pictures, gotcha pictures, sidebar tags for special events, remembering pictures and much, much more.  Although most days she is at the computer for 8-10 hours doing photo-art creation for many of you, I would be remiss if I did not remind her that there are 24-hours available each day that could be devoted to us... all of us.  Perhaps this requires One Swat and One Paws Up.  What do you think?

OVERALL RATING.  If you're not yet ready to click over to another blog, please scroll down for our final comments and recommendations for and about this employee.  Thank you for visiting today, Maggy & Zoey.


Our OVERALL RATING is general in nature, and shall be anonymous ~ as neither of us wish to put at risk the daily Temptations and Party Mix treats. At this time, the CEO and COO have decided to retain this employee and will not consider her for furlough or layoff.  She does need to make more effort to maintain the high standards of this company, and until that goal is met, we do not recommend a pay grade increase.  She may also want to consider waiving any purrsonal or vacation time to which she may think she is entitled, as doing so would be a strong signal to management of her desire to improve her purr-fur-mance. 
Our expectations: Serve our needs and wants at all times.

  4. Boy you girls are TOUGH on the ZH. We would have given her 4 paws. I mean just compare her to our Mom who is simply hopeless at graphics and stuff. We can now see we were much to easy on our Mom and should go back and .........oh wait she has a bag of treats open, never mind we are going to leave our review alone. (nom, nom, nom)

  10. We have no idea how your ZH can't get 4 paws plus for every category. She may not have the time to visit us with comments that often, but every day we open our blog we know that she is with us through the gorgeous art work she creates for us. And for that we are forever grateful.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara and the Momster

  23. This is by far the harshest review we have yet to come across. We think Miss Ann deserves 12 paws, all yours and mine combined.

  29. Oy yoy yoy Ladies! I thinks I has to transfer some of my Human's 4 PAWS ratings (I was bribed with Num-Nums...) to the ZH because she made my blog beautiful and my Human has difficulty cropping pictures...

  32. Ladies, we think you were a bit too harsh with your Mom. We think she is doing a fantastic job!

    Purrs to you for organizing this fun event. We rated our Mom's PurrFurMance, and gave her similar marks. However, we think our Mom's rating was deserved!

    Purrs,

  34. We are ways behinds in visiting, but yours was the first Review we read and it made us laff and laff (and then maybe be a little too hard on our Teri, maybe?)since we know how hard your mum works for you, making you famous world wide!
