Catch-up day!

Hi Everybody!

Today I have to catch-up on this blog! I have had a very busy couple of weeks, so here goes:

Two weeks ago the Library was invaded by 2nd graders (medium-smallish children) and then last week it was invaded by kindergartners (really itty-bitty children). I don't mind children when they come in ones or twos (so long as they're quiet and they move nice and slow and don't slap-pet me), but the sudden arrival of 20 or 30 of them at a time is little intimidating. So I tried to spend most of my time here:


But then AB Karen and AAB Becki decided that I needed to be Sociable and held me while I was petted by about 30 kindergartners. I have "earned my keep" at least through July of 2013 because of my Sociable-ness and extreme Pettablility.

On this past Saturday I snoopervised my Staff to make sure they worked even though it was Memorial Day Weekend Saturday. This means they spent the early morning pouting about being at work and then put on their smiling faces for the people that came in to visit the Library. I was deemed a Very Good Boss that day and I was served my supper on the desk. I made the most of it:


For the record, this mess in Not My Fault. They keep feeding me my supper in this silly little dish with very low sides, so what do they expect to happen? After seeing the mess that supper caused, AAB Britta complimented my Handsomeness and petted me.

Last but not least, yesterday was Assistant Boss Mommy Karen's birthday. I would have posted a picture yesterday but someone Borrowed my camera for the weekend and forgot to return it. So here is a picture of her Presents:


The little Angel Cat is me! It used to be not-painted, but I commanded Assistant Assistant Boss Myrtle to paint it for me. Myrtle did a Most Excellent Job at capturing my Handsomeness, as well as my Charm and Personality. I will have to visit with her more, so that I can continue to Inspire her creativity.

These last few weeks have been exhausting. Yesterday the staff also made a mess put out the items for the book sale, so if you find yourself in Thorntown, Indiana, stop by and take a look!

If anyone needs me, I'll be here:


Purrs,

Tober

Hi Tober! We are glad to see you! IT sounds like there has been a lot going on there - not all of it good! But it sounds like you survived the invasion of the little sticky people pretty well! And we totally can understand about small dishes causing food messes - that used to happen at our house with our food too.

And happy happy birthday to your Assistant Boss Mommy Karen - what great gifts she got. That cute Angel Tober is awesome!

And you of course are adorable as always!!

Tober ~ How do you do it ?
Amazing you haven't wasted away to nothing with all you have to do over there.

And what a well deserved nap it is too! So much going on. Quite exhausting, but clearly you are a very Good Boss and up to the challenge.

Goodness, Tober, you've been very busy. We hope the influx of children hasn't totally worn you down, it sounds very scary to us. Happy belated birthday to AB Karen!

Purrs and hugs,

Cat Mandu said...

Tober, you do have to watch your tail when the kiddies visit. That smarts when they step on it. I think it is great that you got to meet them all.

Tober,
You deserve a rest and a MEDAL for being so good with the Young Humans.
We really like the statue of you. Mommy says that is a wonderful gift.

You are such a brave mancat, Tober, to let all those little kiddies pet you! We love the angel kitty!
