    Setting a price
    Is there a price you'd sell your pet? Apparently $100,000 might be enough for me.
    Tender is too sweet to sell. But if someone came up and offered me $100K for her, I think I'd have to consider.

    Double the value for either of the cats. They've been with me a lot longer. On the other hand, they are likely closer to death.

    I'm heartless even though I'm certain no one will offer me anything for them. The cats and the dog just aren't worth a lot of money to anyone. The cats are certainly simple to find by visiting a local animal shelter. The dog can be adopted for far less than my tentative asking price from almost any greyhound rescue organization.

    I don't have any children -- so don't bother with bidding. And my wife is not for sale.

    The ironic truth is that I have something far more valuable than I've been selling for far less: my time. I waste it. I squander it at work. I barter it for a free t-shirts.

    Time to regain some focus and invest in my time because I don't think speculative pet buying will follow after the housing bubble bursts.
