Tornado Warnings = Fun in the Restrooms!

On Thursday we had spring weather in Indiana.  That means that it gets all blowy out and the staff get uptight.  This time the spring weather was extra spring-y, and the tornado sirens sounded.

When that happens, everybody has to go Downstairs into the library hallway near the restrooms; that area has the least amount of windows and the most amount of hallway.  And me, lucky me, I got to hang out in the bathroom!

It was the Best Day Ever!  Something I love to do, but that I don't get to do anymore now that I'm a Library Cat, is drinking toilet-water.

I thought I was being sneaky about it.

Not so sneaky!
You see, I try to follow custodian Sandy into the restrooms when she's cleaning, but she won't let me go in.  So I try to follow some of the staff into the restrooms, but they won't let me go in.  (Sometimes I serenade them while they're using the facilities, just to let them know I'm still out there, wanting in.)  
But since the lower level ladies' restroom was determined to by my Safe Place during a tornado warning, I had THREE toilets to drink from.  It was great!

I also learned that the lower level ladies' restroom is equipped with the most comfiest cat bed:


It's like it was meant for me!

Not everyone likes tornado warnings.  The staff all had to hang out in the hallway and they didn't have any books to read or toys to play with.  Barb was sad because she had an awesome program scheduled and the tornado warning took up half of it.  So I guess I won't hope for more tornado warnings, but just be thankful that I got my fill of toilet-water and a good snooze in the restroom cat bed.  

Why would they put that bed in the restroom if I'm not allowed in, I wonder?
