He doesn't look like much of a fat cat, at least not yet. I'm tempted to invest my cans of tuna then.

Wow. Finally someone has leveraged the paradigm into a modern web 2.0 app-like cloud service. This is giving me a future boner.

Ok I am not sure I should ask this, but is "smidge" an overused word of artlessness now?

I thought Smidge was the name of the cat. I am busy leveraging.

Smidgeo CFO ( cheif feline officer) would never be so crude as to name his startup after himself, you dumb. An investment in Smidgeo is an investment in the company itself, not to fat cat business interests. Future kibbles can only be earned by staying hungry, playing hard, hiding from strangers, hiding from competitors, climbing high, pouncing hard, and maybe accepting treats from strangers who find you.

I don't understand what happens under the cat.

Here's a little bit of backstory: ignignokt and I are angel investors/early adopters of Smidgeo (i.e. we feed him and provide him cardboard boxes to leverage). The cat's actual given name is Bonus Cat, and "Smidgeo" is one of his many nicknames (along with various mispronunciations of "bonus" and high-fat foodstuffs that he resembles). As I recall, the nickname just spontaneously happened, and at some point it turned into a company name and we decided he was a startup businesscat and things just took off from there. So if parts of the Smidgital Digital Smrategy don't make sense, it is either because they are too innovative for the future or because he is a cat.

tl;dr: we are weirdos who make up stories about our cats, turned up to smidgeleven.
