On Saturday, May 8, I had the honor of entertaining two foreign (i.e. not from Boone County) dignitaries who came to see me. They were very Official; they emailed in advance to make an appointment and asked what gift(s) they could bring.
I thought about asking for a hamster in a hamster-ball or some Cords or a pound or two of catnip, but I finally decided that a nice bag of Whisker Lickins would do.
A hamster in a hamster-ball would maybe have been a little bit greedy. And if I accidentally pushed the hamster-ball down the stairs, it might have broken open at the bottom and unleashed a fearsome beastie that would nibble Library books and then I would have had to hunt it down and that would have interrupted my regularly-scheduled naptime. I am very very pleased with my treats.
My visitors were named Pam and Debbie, and Pam hugged me and we took lots of pictures together. My Photographer did NOT bring her A Game because she was having all sorts of Technical Difficulties operating Pam's camera. She flashed me the first time, and then she kept making Pam's camera turn off. Then she used Debbie's camera which she figured out pretty quickly.
Then, just when I thought AAB Photographer was done, she decided SHE needed a picture of me (because she doesn't photograph me enough, you know).
I am a Very Patient Cat, but I can only be photographed so many times in a row while being hugged by a (very nice and thoughtful) stranger, so this is the picture my Photographer got:
Despite the Crazy Eyes in the picture, I had a wonderful Visit with Pam and Debbie, and have decided to make them Famous by mentioning them in my blog. (I got their Permissions first because now they're going to have to deal with the Paparazzis and stuff.)
Famouser and famouser,
