Very Important Stuff

For every two crummy employees, at least I get one good one. (See last post for recent Firements.)

AAB Ritchie, despite being a Lergic Allergic, is turning out to be a pretty good Assistant.

In the mornings he is the Very First person to come to the Library, which means he has very Important responsibilities. . . like giving me treats.

(I think he learned much of this when he was promoted to Assistant Boss for a week back in January.)

Last week I intercepted an inter-office email of Great Importance:

Please note that my name is in ALL CAPS while the rest of the email is in silly little baby lowercase letters. I'm sure that this is to draw attention to the importance of the subject (ME) so that AB Karen doesn't accidentally delete the email. (She gets lots of emails, mostly about Acai berries and Rolex watches and other things which I probably shouldn't mention. Occasionally some library business makes it through, too.)

It is good to know that my AABs worry about my happiness and comfort. Just for that, I'm going to leave extra furs on AAB Ritchie's computer monitor. I'm sure he'll be pleasantly surprised.

Treat-ed well,

Boss Tober

PS - A picture of me looking very Official:

Who's in charge of your 'treat' budget ?

Katnip Lounge said...

TOBER, we are distraught over your purrsonel predicament, at least there's one good one out of the rabble! Your Bossly Look made even our Mommy tremble, and she's made outta some pretty stout stuff.

What a cute cat you are! I just signed up as a follower. You're more than welcome to come and say 'Meow!' at any time :)


Fisher and Staff said...

It sounds to me like you have things working your way over there. At least I hope so!

Sparkle said...

I am so glad to hear that someone is looking out for your treats, TOBER!

Huffle Mawson said...

You have to keep training them Tober. Humans are slow to learn, you know.

p.s. I am featuring you on my blog next Friday!

Tober, this is very serious indeed. The treats are treasures and should be locked up, but you should have a key to your treasures.

Mr Puddy said...

I think you should give Ritchie a kiss : )

Junior and Orion said...

Hi Tober - we are so behind in visiting but mom made a special trip over because we know you are in the bad stormy area in Indiana (we are in the Chicago area so we see your area on our news when it is really bad). We are hoping you and all your employees are ok after all the storms and we are purring for everyone!

And as for your post, well, we are glad that you are so important to your employees - Ritchie is very lucky to be getting some extra furs!!

Hi Tober we came over to say hello from our friend Miss Huffle. You look like the mirror image of my big bro Simba :) And, guess what? My mummy works in a library too. Her's is a university library but they don't have any kitties that visit. They had a woofie run in once from the park which she said was funny. We would like to be your friend but silly mummy can't see where to click to "follow" you :)xx

Hi, Tober, we are happy to meet you....we heard about you on Huffle's blog.

We would love it if you would visit us sometime....:)

Hi Tober
As you may know Huffle featured you on her blog today, we suspect you will be getting some extra visits from all different cats today. I'm Abby and I'm a Manx. You remind me of my brother Ping,he is an orinch boy like you, and he's a character, from the sounds of your first post I think you are a character too! We look forward to getting to know you. Now we're going to go read through your blog!

Hi Mr. Tober!

Our Aussie pal Huffle Mawson told us about you and because we have a big complaint about our library, I thought we should write you. I am Stella, a borador dog and I have a Tortie cat name Ali Zophia. We are not allowed to step foot in our library! Our Mom goes all the time, and she fastens my leash to the bike rack. Sometimes my favorite person Lori comes out and visits me. Ali Z is like you she is strictly indoor dweller so it not a big deal to her. But now that I know you have a JOB there, I want to know if other animals are allowed in your library. Are they??
