We HATE our new plates

New plates came in the mail. They are so UGLY. Mom doesn't like them either. She didn't order new plates, only a new tag.

Our old plates had a nice number/letter compurrnation that we loved and had for years and years and had gotten used to. Apparently the Iowa DOT is running out of number/letter combos, so all new plates have Letter/Number compurrnations. Yuck. We hate it. Ours starts with A. We don't want A. We had nice letters from the middle of the alphabet.

Dear Iowa Department of Transpurrtation: If you HAVE TO send us new plates, why can't we keep our old number/letter compurrnation? Who is using that one right now anyway? Why can't we keep it?

Our Cat Recreational Vehicle looks so ugly with the new plates on it. I think I'll ask Mom to get us Purrsonalized plates. TUNA4ME or something like that :(

TUNA4ME sounds like a great idea!

At first meowmy thought you had gotten new dishes to eat off of, MOL, MOL!!!

Meowmy's 'plate' says the Dutch word for kitten, or little kitty. (P----E) You could put in the German word for cats (Katzen) that would be a conversation starter!

Momma's new plates are really ugly too. They don't even look like real plates - they look like temporaries! Momma thinks Texas is trying to get more people to buy fancy plates by making the regular ones so ugly!

They changed Texas plates to we have black and white with some crazy BBD thing. Mom hates them to.. no color or anything.

I do like Tuna4me.

WEbees, we thought it was plates (dishes) too, I was like huh?

Meezers, I like your idea: KATZEN
or NODOGS might be good to.
Hi Charlie and Meiko. Our plates are mostly white with a little bit of blue in the background. And you can see a farm in the background.

I don't care what my food dishes look like as long as there is yummy food in there.
Meiko, what's BBD? Isn't Texas the Lone Star State? You should have a star on your plates.

Timo, they use to have a star and then a nice green and blue sky thing.

Now they are black and white, and most new plates like mine all start with BBD- then some ramdon #'s. We seen some with BBE.. so maybe thery have some kind of system we dont understand.

We have no idea what the BBD is...

Oh, I see. Here is a link to the Texas Dept. of Motor Vehicles. Yes, your plates are all black and white. Hmph, they are blacker than ours.

MOL, I thought yew meant plates to eat on heehee!

Our porta-prison-on-wheels has original plates on it and since it ish a vintage car, they are vintage too - furry purrdy blue wif yellow letters and numbers. Meowmy likes that because they goes wif the car - vintage cars neFUR looks as good if they hash new plates. I ish just glad I hardly eFUR hash to see them because seeing them means going to the White Coats *hissssss* Maybe yew guys could carve some decorations on yer Mom's plate wif yer teef and back claws - I finks that would be furry artistic and nice of yew too.

Humphrey, a vintage car with vintage plates sounds very cool. Thank you for the tip with decorating the plate. I don't think we want to get sand in our mouths. We'll try to use our back claws on the ugly plate, next time when we're out We've already seen the plate the other day when we had to spent two hours in the car sitting in the purrking lot because they tested the fire alarm in our building. And Mom didn't want us in the house for that. We could have gotten a lot of decorating done in two hours.
