Royalty for Cats

Hi Y'all! Let's cut the chase, shall we? I have a business proposal. A sound one, if I may say so.

A tiger on the bed with Nikki?
See the cute "tiger" pencil case Mama got me (that Nikki has agreed to model with)? I've been using that to store my stationeries. You see, we're all homeschooled and Mama insists that we all do proper housekeeping. But I digress....let's get to the point.

Oooo.....he's so handsome.
Look at this cute face. I wonder how many of these "tiger" pencil cases have been produced and used worldwide. It's not cheap, Mama said. She paid RM10 for this little fella and that was on a 50% discount, which means people would normally pay RM20 for a small pencil case. What about those humongous "tiger" plush? I bet they would be more expensive, especially for those with so-called licensed names like Tigger of Winnie the Pooh fame.

Now, let's apply licensing fees on every "tiger" lookalike produced (plush toys, shoes or fabric with tiger prints, rugs, cushions etc etc etc) just like licensing fees charged by the music industry. For every 100,000 "tiger" pencil case, say each sold at normal price of RM20, we take 10% royalty for the real tigers. That's 10% of RM2 million, equals to RM400,000!!!!!

That's RM400,000 for the tigers that we can use for conservation, food, rehabilitation, recreation of habitats, vet services etc etc etc. Who should monitor this effort? I'd suggest myself but I'm just a small kittykat (who doesn't even have a bank account). What about MNS or PAWS or even SPCA? We'll start with Malaysia first, OK? We'll sort out the rest of the world later. Think about it, peeps!

Tiger...errr....cat fight on bed.
Ooohh...and products like this should pay higher royalties. (pix from Uncle Google)
In the meantime, I'll let Nikki continue playing with my "tiger". har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Your Royal Monyetness,
I was thinking....if the model had marched on the street wearing that yellow "tiger" thingy, would she be arrested? har har har *evil laughs*

Katnip Lounge said...

It's an offer we can't refuse!

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Errr....it's Brad here. Angelina is hibernating. Anyway, I had a good tutor. Mama majored in Maths, once upon a time. har har har *evil laughs*

I'm with Mr. Puddy, that Google picture is somewhat disturbing.

I think you plan is a good one!

Nubbin wiggles,

Hi Cat, I love the one on that SYT....wonder whether it comes with that SYT? Ha ha.

You have fun with those thoughts..

tireless mom said...

I second that :) But make sure Tiger betul betul bukan Tiger Woods.

Tamago said...

It's very interesting! You are right, these licensing fees can be used for many good causes!!

Sandy said...

Brad is an entrepreneur wannabe now ! Good idea, Brad. What you need to do now is create a seriously funny and cute tiger/cat character. Something that is distinct from Tigger - cos you don't want to be sued, hmm... let me know if you need an illustrator haha

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
Tigger should actually be taxed and help contribute to the tiger fund! har har har *evil laughs*
