Purrformance Review

IZA:  Spittikins (Dearest of all cats and owner of the weariest-royal-head-needing-a-tummy-to-rest-on) reminded us of the annual Bein purrformance review.  Ours is easy...

We hesitate to review our TBT.  It will seem too kind.  But we are honest...

Quantity of Output:  4 Paws.  He helps us post daily.

Quality of Output:  4 Paws.  He does very well with the pictures...

Client Pawticipation:  4 Paws.  He has our email on the blog, and connects from his to ours.

Pawticipation (Part II):  4 Paws.  He helps us throw pawties, and reminds us of special days.

Client Satisfaction:  4 Paws.  He helps our friends enjoy visiting our blog.

Overall Rating:  4 Paws.  Well, he COULD sit in the TV chair more, but since we are enjoying being out on the deck a lot, that might be wasted time fer him.  He IS available a lot after dark.

Its really hard to take any credit paws away from him.  Mebbe we could get more bacon... But WE just couldnt find paws to diminish fer him this year.

What is YOUR review of yer Bein?
UPDATE:

Hmmm, Megan just pointed out that we shouldn't consider TBT purrfect.  We agree, but are not sure where to reduce his rating.  

So we will reduce it by one paw "somewhere" and not be specific about it.  There IS allus room fer Beins to improve their attention to us!

We had the SAME problem: the public face of our blog is great - only we know the neglect, lack of treats and abandonment that is the daily life behind us media stars.

Well, what can I say? You kitties really scored with TBT! Not every kitty gets an exemplary human like him.

Megan said...

It's good of you to be generous, but ... it might have been helpful to have made some comments during the review about opportunities for improvement. I mean, he's good, but surely he's not perfect! That said, he probably should get five or six paws - indeed, between you you've got 12 paws, so perhaps all 12 - for the parties. Your parties are the best on the whole innerwebs.

You gave TBT a good review. We reviewed the mom awhile ago and we think we graded her a little higher than we should have. :)

That was a very fair review. There needs to be more questions about personal care.

Brian said...

I think y'all had all the paws in the right places!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Wow, you have a pretty amazing human!

Ours would fail re: the blog and any social media, but she does get high marks for treats and for the garden. She IS gone too much though, for her day-hunting.

We agree that TBT is really a treasure! You are so lucky to have him in your lives!

You gave TBT a very good review and he should be very pleased with it.
The last time me and Eric reviewed our mum's performance was 4 years ago and she was sadly lacking back then, but we may have been a bit harsh.

It's wonderful you have your purrson so well trained. Ours has been falling down on the job a bit lately.

We need to teach our peep to post more...and not do all the other not kitty stuff; MOL!!

Opportunities for improvement: I agree that it's difficult to see where TBT's rating could be reduced, even acknowledging that he's not perfect. On reflection, I wonder whether it's the performance review form that's deficient. Perhaps two new sections could be added, to be: "Opportunities for improvement" and "Initiatives and innovations since last review". The second of these could be rated using the 0-4 paws scale, and the opportunities section would be rated, but would be suggestions for TBT to consider introducing between now and the next review. I would hope that these two new sections of the review would give even a high performer such as TBT incentive to continually improve the quality of the services he provides.

Sorry - my last comment should have read "... and the opportunities section WOULDN'T be rated ..."
