Yesterday I couldn't wait for Mom to get up
to watch me eat.
So, I not only put Mimz in my food bowl,
I added a side of fish for good measure.
When it came time to make the usual rounds,
I told Mom I didn't want to go.
She let me stay home.
Eventually, however it got a bit lonely.
Fortunately, Mom came and got me.
Once I was actually in the office visiting the
Nice Ladies, I began to enjoy it.
Although, I went under my favorite chair when
people I didn't know came in.
Mom put the flap up on my chair so
I could see out when I was under it.
This helped me understand that no one was out
to get me and it was safe to come out.
So I did.
I found the top of the chair quite comfortable.
I was able to relax there for quite some time.
Eventually, however, I was ready to go home.
So I moved to a position that displayed my
mood and opinion to everyone in the room.
I was disappointed when Mom failed to get the point;
taking pictures when she should have been taking me home.
I tried to explain things to her logically.
"See the clock behind me, Mom?
It clearly says it's time to go home."
Somehow she failed to see my logic.
So I had to resort once again to
FINALLY she got the hint.
Going home turned out to be a bit
of a disappointment.
Mom didn't let me go out on the patio.
Instead, she got out the Carpet Monster.
I was not amused.
Once Daddy came home I began to relax.
Sure, things didn't go my way.
Sure, the Carpet Monster came out.
Ultimately, however, I was indeed at home.
I had Mom, Daddy, and a nice cozy blanket on the couch.
I began to see the brighter side of things
and snuggled in for a good long cat nap.
Of course, this doesn't mean I won't be
disappointed with Wednesday.
You can't possibly expect a disgruntled cat like me
to make a habit of looking on the bright side.
