The Groupon revolution has changed the way we do everything, from buying baseball tickets to getting laser eye surgery. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s always appropriate to use daily deal websites to push your offers. Or maybe there are just enough aspiring cat ladies out there to cause this buy (erm, adopt) one, get one free deal deal from the ASPCA make more sense than we realize.
It’s not that we don’t like cats, far from it. It’s just that we can’t imagine someone who’s on the fence about adopting just one cat being suddenly swayed by the idea that they could clean up twice the amount of kitty litter and spend twice as much on food as they normally would have to. And even if this is just some kind of ploy by the ASPCA to artificially lower their kitten backstock, wouldn’t it be better to send you out the door with free kitten toys, immunization shots or sterilization? Frankly this deal, if you can call it that, just raises more questions than it answers.
