Because the loving cat mommy not only likes to illustrate analog, but with the help of her iPad she lets every conceivable animal appear in her photos of excursions. As if there are no unicorns in the Harz Mountains!

This way she arrives at the overall result and can document the financial situation as well as changes in inventories - she thus determines what remains at the bottom line.
