Annual Purrformance Review.

It is time to review mum's performance for 2011. It is strange but we have been getting lots of extra treats lately. We can't think why.

ANNUAL PERFORMANCE REVIEW FOR: MUM
REVIEWED BY: ERIC AND FLYNN

1. Quantity of output: No Paws.
She does help us to blog every day when she is here, here being the operative word. If she didn't keep gallivanting off on holiday she would have received the maximum of Four Paws. We have told her she really needs to improve in this department but things don't look hopeful. We have heard that the Beans already have two cruises booked as well as some short breaks. We seem to remember telling her that this had to improve last year but she has ignored our warnings. If this persists we will have no choice than to award her Two Swats next year.

2. Quality of output: Three Paws.
She does do better here as she takes us on walks around the fields in the hope of getting good photos of us. Also she lets us take our camera so we can show things as we see them. She sometimes takes embarrassing photos of us though and that has prevented her getting Four Paws.

3. Client Pawticipation: One paw.
We have our own email address where we can be contacted, but mum only puts it on show at Christmas so that is not much use. We will tell her we need it on our blog where it can be seen. This deserves two swats but we can be contacted on her email address which is on our profile so maybe we will give her one paw.

4. Pawticipation Part 2: Three and a half paws.
We take place in quite a few competitions and have had some of our own. We are allowed to go to Chatzy when the room is open too so we think we will give her four paws. On second thoughts, we don't want her thinking she is perfect so we will give her three and a half paws.

5. Client Satisfaction: Three paws.
We get quite a few comments every day so we hope we are giving client satisfaction.

6. Overall Rating:
A total of ten and a half paws out of a possible twenty is just not good enough. We expect to see a marked improvement next year.

  6. Uh-oh, if your human did not do too well, I think the other humans out there should be worried! Although your human DID get points off for all those trips! I have laid down the paw with mine: she only gets to go out of town when it is to promote me!

  8. You're tough kitties, Eric and Flynn. You should run GM or be the hosts on elimination talent shows :-)

    Au ate supper and breakfast after 2 days of starving. Ups and downs.... Thanks for your kind words and continued purrs. I really appreciate it.

  11. You guys have high expectations - which is good! But we are surprised by the low number of paws. The holidays and abandonment though - that does deserve a swat!

  14. I didn't even mention the travel thing in my mum's review. She would have been in the minus!

  16. Well that was a good review but not good for the Mom. We think you were a little rough on that Mom too. We love your blog and love all the pictures that everyone takes. Hope all of you have a fun week end.

  17. We don't understand why Moms go on trips. We agree that you need to take points off because of her trips, but we really love seeing her pictures when she comes home.

  18. Excellent evaluation guys. You two have to set the guidelines or the beans just go off.... go off being the operative word.

    I know both of you see some areas of need of improvement - just go slowly but stick to it. They are just like children!

  19. your Mom does a great job and needs a much higher rating than you gave her!

  20. Flynn and Eric!!!
    Over all a great purr-fur-mance review of the peeps. It appears that in order to keep them home you will need to lock them in the house and throw away the key. They have wanderlust and there is no cure...you will just have to accept this fact.

  21. We thought that was a fair review -especally as you are doing your own photography now. Although the up side of this we suppose is that you won't take pictures of your own bottoms!!

  22. We think your mom does a great job...we love visiting your blog, and although our mom is slack and we don't make it daily, it's always a treat!

  23. I think your mom deserves an extra paw or 2 for giving you a camera of your own!

  24. We think that was a pretty fair review!

  25. A lot of furries think that the kitties are being rough on the reviews but I say no to that. I say humans read it and weep. I think you gave a very fair evaluation and it never hurts to improve one so hopefully this year you will see a change.
    Love the photo of you at LOL's place and wanted to mention that you don't have big thighs, again this will with the review. Just bad camera angle. A bad angle will add many pounds to one's figure.

  26. Wow! You guys are tough! We'd rate your mum a 30 out of 20 ! We think she is just amazing! She is so creative and writes with such lovely style. Not to mention her humour! And your dad! There should be at least 10 bonus points thrown in for those wonderful scritches!
    Their review should indicate perfection After all, your mum and dad raised two of the finest kitties we know.

  27. Dear Eric and Flynn
    Me thinks your Mommy is pawsone! Yous was afully hard on her. Me thinks she does a great job! Unlike my Mommy who did not get a review this year. Me has been making her read them all so she knows what she needs to aspire too!

  28. You did a really good review.

    I had to pad the review a little or Pellie would have failed and I hate to see her cry.

    Purrs,

  29. Guys,
    I really think mom deserves top paws for letting you take your own pictures, Flynn. I ALWAYS enjoy them and it is a very unique thing you get to do.

  30. Yes, a very fair report, guys. We hope your nice mom takes it to heart. Even though we know you love her - and vice versa - sometimes you have to use tough love to get your point across.

  31. Aww I think you have been quite hard on your mum as she does a great job on your blog. I know they go away but you do get to stay in your penthouse prison. I for one love to visit with you so I give your mum a paws up.. Hugs GJ xx

  32. You are tough raters! But you know the situation best, so it must be fair.

    With a rating just barely over 50%, Mum better "up her game" in 2011!

  33. I think your Mom is doing a pretty darn good job.
