On Day 77 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project, I arrived home from vacation to find evidence that though I’d left plenty of food and water for my two poorly behaved kitties, a pink collar cat crime had taken place.
Clue # 1
Clue # 2
Serial Crime Evidence
Turning State’s Evidence
This pink collar crime has taught me to trust my instincts (not hubby’s advice). Two full to the brim bowls of food apiece and an oversized bowl of water are not enough for female cats who both suffer from a scarcity mentality. I imagine they scarfed their way through their own food and the other’s three days in, maybe less. Hissing, spitting and hair standing on end was probably involved in the fight not to famish and to get theirs.
Comical as my crime scene scenario may seem, as a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick, it does remind me of cattiness with women, on the home front and in the workplace. How often do we claw and scratch to get not only our share but that of others, even when we have enough? Please don’t get me wrong, I realize there are only so many seats on the school PTO or advancement opportunities at the office, but should we sabotage one another to access them?
Peppa Loveday and Skylar worked together as accomplices to accomplish their crime. Perhaps if more women worked with one another instead of against each other, we’d all get a piece of the pie. Or donut hole… My pink collar partners in cat crime did a lot of things wrong. They got the partner thing totally right.
