Daddy's been sorta sad lately. this week Daddy's boss told him that he didn't think Daddy was doing a good job, that the numbers had gone down at the restaurant daddy is Chef of.
Daddy was hurt and upset. He works so many hours, and let me tell you, we love my daddy's cooking-when he cooks here we all gather around the table to leth im know just now good his food is.
Daddy told his boss that he is doing his best, but if his hands are tied he can't do what he must to bring up the numbers. His boss does not accept suggestions, and when Daddy has tried to put his new menu in place, his boss hired someone He wanted to work the other shift as a 'helper' to daddy and put the guy on with a big expensive menu at night. Daddy and daddy's crew tried to explain that people in the area want good, homecooked food that Daddy does, but Daddy's boss doesn't listen.
Daddy's boss told him his job is safe, but he didn't pay daddy on Friday. He told Daddy he could get his pay on Sunday when he had a meeting there. Daddy and Mommy went there on Sautreday when Daddy wasn't scheduled to work...but the cook the boss had hired for the day daddy wasn't there didn't show so Daddy went in to cover. And mommy went and sat there til the boss came with the money. But he didn't pay other staff who were waiting.
I am sad for Daddy....and believe me, Daddy cooks really well-and is a good guy in the kitchen. Daddy told me it's hard being a chef becuase of this. But I love daddy's cooking-he makes the best fried chicken and fish...even mommy likes it....and this makes me mad! My daddy is too a good Cook! And a great Chef! He makes sure all us kitties eat good!
Mommy is worried....she told daddy he needs to get out of 'that field'. I think Daddy's great at what he does! I'll never understand some humans! Why do they hire people to do a job and then not let them do it!?

Poor Ruffy daddy. Ruffy, you can' worries 'bout alla peeples worries. BUT, what you can do is SHOW daddy 'at he'sa wunnerfur cook/chef by eatin alla the foods he make fur you. You can luff on him an purr fur him an' lets him know 'at he a BEST DADDY EFUR! Is what we kitties can do.
Aww Ruffy, I'm sorry. Tell your Daddy not to let other people bring him down. Look at how hard he works, even filling in on his day off for somebody who doesn't show up for work! I know you guys have talked about his good cooking before. If My Mommy owned a restaurant, she would hire your Daddy in a heartbeat!
Ruffy - our human brother is a chef too - and he recently moved over to the purchasing & receiving goods part at his job, because they were not giving the chefs enough time - since business is down. The big corporation that owns them only looks at numbers - not reality. That is the bad thing - if people do not have extra $, they cannot go out to eat - and that is not your daddy's fault. It is so sad that his boss does not want his ideas - but tell your daddy not to give up. It sounds like the boss does not know how to run his business very well. We keep hoping & hoping that times will get better for everyone. Keeping you in our purrs. We sure would like a smackeral of that catfish....mmmmm
Gosh, I'm getting hungry just reading about yummy fried catfish and fried chicken. My mom loves good down home cooking, and so do many of her friends. It's really popular in the city where people miss that kind of thing. My mom couldn't fry a catfish to save her life. But she says she agrees with Tigger, when money is tight people cut down on eating out. It has nothing to do with the food, which she knows is good. It sounds like your dad's boss is just trying to blame anyone. Tell your dad to keep his chin up, and we will be thinking positive thoughts for him.
