Now, we love Macleans magazine. We enjoy the articles, even when we don't agree with the viewpoints, and we enjoy the Blog of Lists -- such as the 5 incredible historical artifacts stolen by Canada's most thief (who knew???); and 10 weird things you can only do in Canada...
But... this year they included a list of the 8 Top-Selling Animal Artists.
1. Congo, the chimpanzee, in London, at $26, 352.00
2. Ruby the elephant, in Phoenix, at $25,000
3. The Orangutans of Krefield Zoo, Germany, at $4100.
Well, you get the gist, and you can see the picture. We would normally link to that page, but we couldn't find it on-line yet.
"So," said David, "how much has Napster sold?" We did the math. He has just cracked $12,000 in Gross Sales. All of his profits go to charities, including a Wing and a Prayer, Aspen Valley Wildlife, various Animal Shelters, the local churches and libraries, Cancer society, the local foodbank, and more. That is a LOT of money raised by a small, portly ginger housecat over the past four years.
And by our math, that would put him in slot number Three.
So we wrote a letter to Macleans. You can support it, by firing off a letter to firstname.lastname@example.org to support Napster's artwork and his tentative claim to fame. After all, he is Canadian, and he's doing great work... and he has works around the globe...
Come on Macleans, do the right thing, and recognize this Canadian cat!
