Mom Paula's Annual PurrFurrMance Review

It's that time of the year again - Time for Mom Paula's Annual PurrFurrMance Review.

I must admit, Mom has been purrty good this year. Even though she has already had two gum surgeries and is facing a shoulder surgery, she has taken time for me!


Summary of Review:
  1. Quantity of Output - Mom Paula Almost messed up on this one by not posting my Saturday blog until 9:30 pm. However, she has assisted me in posting 534 straight days without missing one! She has promised that she will post in advance to make sure this continues while she recuperates from her shoulder surgery. There may be some days you just see pictures!
  2. Quality of Output - Mom Paula earned extra points by finding my Baby Praline (Pralinette) pictures from 14 years ago and posting them. In addition, her picture taking skills are getting a little better. If I could just get her to learn how to use PhotoShop Elements, she could get bonus points. With a little help from Ann at Zoolatry, she did a great job with "As The Paw Turns."
  3. Client Pawticipation - Mom Paula has been getting a little slack with helping me visit my furriends on a daily basis. I know, I know, she has been through a lot this year, but doesn't she know I need to come first? She definitely needs to improve in this area for next year's review.
  4. Pawticipation (Part II) - Mom Paula has done purrty well on this one. She helped me participate in the Christmas Card Exchange, the Secret Paws, the Cat Purrsident of the World, the Toehawk Challenge, the Kitty Fight Club Challenge, International Box Day, World Cat Day, Christmas in July, Slumber Party for my 14th birthday, Catwalk Caturday, Paw It Forward, and Tocktober Tuesday. Now that I look at the list, I must admit, she's done quite well. However, I missed out on some contests recently, especially the artist sketch from The Monkeys, so she must still work a little harder to receive high marks.
  5. Client Satisfaction - I believe my furriends are very satisfied with what they see and read on my blog. I think they would like to see more Baby Praline photos, but there are a limited number of those and they are starting to fade. Maybe I can headbutt her into doing a few more of those.
  6. Overall Rating - Mom Paula does her best in tough situations to ensure my blog is "top notch". She has some areas for improvement, but with my help, I believe she can achieve this. She is currently working on addressing my Christmas Cards for 2009 to make sure they get mailed before her surgery. I think I'm a pretty lucky kitty!

One more Pralinette picture, giving my mom a kiss, from 14 years ago!


And you thought I was going to be tough on her! Hee! Hee!

All paws up for mom Paula!!!

CCL Wendy said...

That is simply wonderful, Praline! Yes, I'm glad you appreciate your mama's efforts. She deserves a pat on the back from you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You were kind to your mom, Praline. She has let you do a lot this year, despite her health problems.

If she figures out how to use Photoshop Elements, could she please explain it to Jan. Jan can't get past the "organization" in it, since it absolutely refuses to organize files the way Jan wants them done to fit her filing system. This, of course, affects us, as Jan is crabby just thinking abuot it.And this could hurt her review.

This photo with your mom is so adorable !

I'm glad your Mom got a passing grade on her performance review. And it looks like your data is so safe with Dell that even you can't access it.
