Welcome to Woot's first official recession-era newsletter! For the next 12 to 24 months, all citizens are expected to fret over, worry about, or even directly experience the nadir of a consumerist society - OMG! What will we do when we stop buying stuff? Economists now agree that we're headed through a prolonged period of decreased consumer spending (you really need an advanced degree to come up with insights like that). Beyond that, it's anybody guess. Will the only growth sectors in the economy be shoe repair, pipe salvage, and roadside apple sales? Or will we bring on a quick recovery by doing patriotic things like buying stuff we can't afford and spending more money than we make?

As a retailer, it'd make sense for us to fall in with the BUY STUFF, AMERICA conga line. But by now, you know that we at Woot never do things the "normal", "sensible", "rational", "intelligent" way. We're not about to follow the herd over a cliff. When we go over a cliff, it's because of our own poor judgment, not someone else's. That's been our credo since about five minutes ago, when we first thought of it. And we've stayed true to it ever since.

That's why we're encouraging you and your fellow wooters to save this holiday season. Save your money! Save until you pull a saving muscle. Horde your money until you are literally choking on it. Save until maybe, like, mid-February or so, when the market will be a-glut with great deals for the taking every day. You'll avoid the crowds, take advantage of desperate retailers, and not have to hear "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time" even once.

Sure, maybe you'll disappoint some of your loved ones. But if they really love you, they can wait a couple of months, especially if your finances are at stake. Besides, if your so-called loved ones wanted you to set yourself on fire, would you? Of course you wouldn't. And that's the kind of independent thinking that will one day break the mindless conformity of our consumerist holiday ways.

But be warned: you'll want to stay far away from Woot.com this week. The breadth and scope of bargains we'll be offering - especially starting Tuesday morning at midnight - will be powerfully tempting. They could even lead you back down the spend-spend-spend path with the rest of the sheep. And that would make us sad enough to cry while we're taking your money
.

See you in February!

Both and recently. He was doing it before and I hoped it would be done with once he was fixed. I actually watched him scratch at my son's door a few days ago and when he couldn't get in he turned around and used the litter box instead. Confused
Ok first, regardless of if he's fixed..he's got his scent in your son's bedroom (crappy as that might be...literally). Throw out, change what you can and buy this product that is supposed to completely remove whatever scent an animal leaves behind when peeing/pooping/marking territory. It doesn't work 100% of the time but it does help. I can't remember the name...Catluvr probably knows.

Secondly..if he's just recently been declawed...the kitty litter can hurt where his claws have been removed. (Just the front to paws, right?) The little bits get up in his paws and cause pain...so he might be associating litter with pain. At an animal shelter I worked at a lot of animals who were declawed had this problem. Fill his litter box with shredded newspaper for a few days..even if his paws feel ok now..and see if that helps.

You are amazing. Seriously, first post? Way to go.

READ THE WOOT BLOG, USE TEH RESEARCH BRAINZ.
That was technically my third, my first was a good 10 pages back. I had read the wiki, but it only specified 24-72. I figured perhaps someone had insider knowledge.

as for the cat - if the smell's gotten embedded in the bed, you're SOL.

Otherwise, wash/replace the bedding and see where that takes you. Also smell the mattress and be sure that there isn't a "ground in" smell.
That's what I'm afraid of. Frown The mattress is new too.

Do you giggle whenever someone says 69? Even just a little?

I think he has a problem with the attention you give your son. When my now hubby and I first moved in together my dog (who never had accidents) started peeing on his stuff. They're smart. nod
Yeah...just look at lolcats. They're farking geniuses. nod
