Big Brother is Watching My CAT

Today in the mail I got a big pile of begging junk. I get a great range of junk, from tree hugger to gun toter junk, and lots of hippieshit for sale. I contribute to almost no one, but sometimes will send $20 cash to a cause just because I'm inspired. The last thing I want to do is give money to a politician which they will then spend on harassing the hell out of me.

So TODAY I get junk mail from the Alley Cat Allies, begging for my money to help make the lives of some ferile CAT better. And I wonder, how (the hell) did THEY get my address?? I have never subscribed to Cat Lover's Magazine.... But I did buy cat stuff at a PETSMART using a CREDIT CARD.

Looks to me like the great database in the sky tracked my CAT to this barn, then sold my information to whoever would pay. Now the clients of the data hoarders have commenced to begging. If I get a barrage of cat shit I'm going back to CASH ONLY. And I'm never ever going to Petsmart again.

As far as I am concerned, my next sushi meal is a LOT more important than some ferile cat buried under a bureacracy.
