There's a New Sheriff in Town.

I have been Abandoned and Betrayed by my ex-Assistant Boss Karen. She has run away on Vacation and left me behind, and I have been assigned a new Assistant Boss.

My new Assistant Boss is Ritchie. He used to be the custodian, but he decided that he would like to be Director and so he moved into my office:


Please notice that he is not actually IN the office. Ritchie is Allergic to me, so he does not actually visit much. He did give me a few treats, and he's doing a good job being Director in that none of the staff can find him when they need him.

I am very stressed about my ex-AB being away for so long. Everyone else is doing a good job keeping me distracted, except for AAB Kathy, who actually THREW ME OUT of her office this morning for rubbing my furs on her computer monitor and knocking her hand sanitizer on the floor! (Okay, she did not throw me. She carried my Majestic self upstairs and deposited me in another office.)

See how bad things are getting?


My precious Whisker-hairs are falling out! I'm going to name that one "Ritchie." The one after that shall be "Ritchie Jr."

I have also decided that I want to make my own cat breed--all by myself. I like being an orange tiger-kitty, but I think I deserve my own special breed name. One of my AABs really likes those Scottish Fold cats, so I'm going to compromise and work on being an Indiana Half-Fold cat:


I don't know how successful I will be, because I keep switching sides. . .

Hoping Whiskers grow back fast,

Tober

Poor Tober! You are smart to get this abuse on film!

This is an Outrage! Tober, you need all your whiskers to twitch them in Anger. Karen must be fired as soon as she returns.
And rehired.

That is so silly, allowing someone who is allergic to you to be assistant boss! I hope your regular one gets back from vacation soon - it sounds like the library, and you, are going downhill without her.

We do feel sorry for u Tober. We don't like Ellie going on holiday either! luckily she doesn't go away too often. Hope u still get lots of attention by your library friends. U must get lots of people who visit the library that like to give u love and tickles. Have u got a favorite toy to play with?

MOL! Tober, we think you're the best Indiana Half-fold cat there is!

Indiana Half Fold.....we like it!

Meowm keeps our whiskers that have fallen out. She is a strange one, but she has a little box that she puts them in. We don't know how quickly they grow back in, but we know they do. Thank goodness you have others to twitch around!

As for Ritchie.....he has learned the job of Director quickly hasn't he?

Oh, and you can come over and lay in our sunbeams any time you want. Unfortunately the ones posted on our blog today are old photos, we are currently in foggy conditions. Much to our dismay....no sunspots!!! :(

Don't let 'em get you down, Tober. Stick it to the man, as we used to say in my feline hippie days.

Sounds like a Tober strike force (say it real fast--Toberstrikeforce--it's fun!) is in order. Stand up for your rights. We're with you all the way! Sanitizer bottles, watch out!
