But I don’t like what I got in the mail. Last week, I received some unsolicited, bulk commercial mail. It wasn’t spam, but it was quite close. Yes, it came in a can but, no, it wasn’t delivered to my e-mail inbox.
That’s right. I got some canned tuna from Purina delivered to my doorstep — and they sent this without checking to see if I had a cat to feed it to. This got my goat1. Why is this company sending cans of meat to households willy-nilly? People with cats might enjoy this freebie, but what is everyone else to do? Throw it out and leave the landfill full of cat-meal-sized cans of tuna and hope feral cats don’t discover the bounty and use it to lead the second feline revolution? Eat it? I know I was tempted.
