Tree-in-a-Pot Program; aka I Was Not Invited

So about a million years ago we had a program about Bonsai here at the library.

Okay, okay.  It was January 20th, 2014.  Right.  That's awhile ago when you're a little cat.

Anyway, the Boone County Home Ec Club invited Mr. Scott Yelich to their meeting at the library to talk about Bonsai plants.  Bonsai, which you say bone-sigh and not bahn-zigh, literally means "tree in a pot." 

Mr. Scott Yelich brought a whole bunch of tasty little trees-in-pots to the library and I was very purposefully EXcluded from the program.  Just look at this:


That, my friends, is a photo of me on the WRONG side of the meeting rooms door.  I think I'm saying something along the lines of "You let me in right now so I can sniff those trees-in-pots and maybe bite on some of the nicer-smelling ones!"  Jade plants are one of my favorites (R.I.P. AB Christine's Jade plant) and I found out later that Mr. Scott had one of those and no one bought it for me. 

After a while I gave up at yelling.  I'm pretty tough, but not tough enough to pull that door open with my paws.  FYI--this next pose is guaranteed to yield belly-rubs from whatever meanie is taking photos of and/or teasing you:

Commence sympathetic attention in 3. . . 2. . . 1. . .
So I got plenty of tummy-rubs and pettings, but not Jade plant Bonsai. 

Maybe next time.

Tober, that was just mean! Somebody needs to get you your very own jade plant.

We agree with Sparkle, Tober. You need your very own plant.

Mean ol' library staff! You better have had lots of belly rubs and treats after being shut out of all the interesting stuff. And maybe your own tree!

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Dang those humans! They should have at least let you in long enough to sniff!

It might be time to go on strike and make more demands!While you are at it, raise the ante to two jade plants for your very own.

I'm sorry Tober but I agree with your staff. Make demands for special treats but stay away from the Jade plants!
