Festival parade float book sale carpet cleaning mess week.

Hello friends. This is the week that my staff tears up my Library and makes big messes so they can float and sell books on Saturday.

Oh, wait. I'm being told that's not quite what happens.

Okay, so the Friends of the Library are having a Big Book Sale this weekend, and that has to be set up. And the Library staff is making a float for the Thorntown Festival of the Turning Leaves, which is also this weekend. And they are taking all of the things off of the carpet on Friday so that the carpets can be cleaned, which is also this weekend.

Basically I was right the first time, except the staff doesn't really float.

Look at what they have done to my dining room and restroom area!!!!!

And the desk!!!! Look at the desk!!!!!

How is a cat supposed to fit up there?

If you think that is a mess, you should see the big card table parked by the elevator with a wad of tin foil underneath it. No telling what they think they're going to do with that. . . but I'll post pictures when they figure it out!

I did get to try envelope glue today, which I decided was pretty foul, and I had a smallbit of tape when no one was looking. I also found that it was necessary to interrupt to get some attention. The below distraction combines an irresistible tummy stretch with screwing up the letters in the poster-banner thing that AAB Britta was working on:

It worked like a charm.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better in the treat department, too. I feel I'm getting thin from this day of Neglect and messmaking.

Purrs (but weak ones from all the Neglect),

Aw, Tober, we're sorry you're being neglected. You deserve a whole bunch of treats and we hope you get them!! (We bet that little piece of tape you got was pretty good, wasn't it??)

Tober, will you be riding on the float too? Such messy conditions to have to live with! Poor guy!

Tober! Youe assistants need to get some treats to you ASAP! You look almost Skin and Bones in your stretchy picture.
BTW--I love to chew contact paper. See if you can get some sometime to try. You are the Boss after all, you should get what you want!

Isn't it frustrating, Tober, when the humans totally mess with your workspace? I think you should snoopervise, and only stop if you are given treats. That way you can train your human employees to give you treats even when they are so-called "busy."

P.S. I LOVE envelope glue! You must have a bad batch over there.

Tober, hopefully they will come to their senses soon, stop the mess making and start dispensing the treats

Well! The rudeness. Just unbelievable! What you have to endure, Tober.

Hello Tober. My goodness, what terrible working conditions you have to endure! We especially meowed out loud at your glorious tail tweaking the letters on the poster out of line...hee hee.
