This Wednesday To Be Cancelled Due To Lack of Interest


Edmonds, WA

In a unanimous decision made by cats at Edmonds City Hall, this Wednesday will be cancelled due to lack of interest. Many emails and phone calls were received at City Hall offices early this morning from cats who just didn't want to have to get out of bed on Wednesday.

"We are not sure why this has happened," said representative Ratchet, a 4-year-old Domestic Short Hair male. "Nevertheless, the cats wanted to sleep in and they requested a hearing, it is our job to listen."


Oingo Boingo said simply "okay then"

The Cats of the Edmonds Board of Trustees met with City of Edmonds officials late Monday afternoon to discuss the issue over cookies, fresh apple fritters, green tea, and shrimp, in a rather impromptu session.

Member cats stated that they had heretofore never been presented with such an issue, but that it was their job to hear the public and come up with a solution that fit every one's needs.

None of the members really gave a crap about Wednesday either, so it was cancelled.

"Taking Wednesday out of the week just gets the weekend here faster anyhow." said Ratchet, "In terms of days of the week it is sort of an outlier, you know? The decision...It's fine with me."


Asked about the decision, local cat Ratchet said essentially, "...It's fine with me"

"The good thing here is that schools are flexible, so we don't have to worry about teencats and kittens missing classes," Mayor Cat Stevens said. "So if this is what cats want, then let us not stand in their way. Wednesday has officially been cancelled and will be rescheduled for next Wednesday."

Some cats however, were outraged by the decision. Toby, a 7-year-old, spayed, Domestic Short Hair female, (who is also a member of the new Progressive Cat Movement) said in a statement that the underlying problem is the growing number of chronic lazy cats today.

"I don't mean your average cat, who sleeps about 21 hours a day" Toby said "I mean this new breed of cat, who sleeps 23.5 hours or more per day." Toby continued, "They are doing nothing all day long and the trouble with doing nothing all day is that you never know when you're finished." Toby and a small group of other cats and kittens had waited outside the doors of City Hall to hear the decision.


Toby stated that he just didn't care enough about it for it to happen

Mayor Stevens said there is no need for the public to worry. He said no precedent was set today. Cats today are tired from the strains of having to hear all about President Obama's "cute" new puppy all weekend long on every single TV station and just needed a day to relax and clear their minds.

Hopefully interest will pick up again after the puppy news dies down and cats will be more interested in things other than napping and sleeping in.

We agree that it is a great idea. We're not fond of Wednesdays as a rule, and this particular Wednesday is April 15, which is a double whammy.

We vote to remove Wednesday, too!
