Brought to you by the letter "B"

Last week I was a Busy B(ee) at the library.

On Tuesday nights I usually make it a point to supervise AB Karen and AAB Christine when they work Downstairs. They do not usually work Downstairs with the little ones, so I have to keep a close eye on them to make sure they do it right.

Last Tuesday when I visited I found that Miss Myrtle had put up a bulletin board for me! I really liked the last one, with the bows and jingle bells, and I was happy to see that my new bulletin board has hearts on it! And leaves and FLOWERS! Leaves and flowers--the fake kind--are especially nice to chomp on.

Here I am Busy trying to reach some tasty, crunchy roses. See how tall I can be?

After I was done inspecting my new bulletin board, I had to keep an eye on AB Karen's Very Important Papers. (These are Papers she drags all over the library with her. I don't know what they are, but they must be Important, since they follow her around everywhere.)

See how Busy!?

After that I Busied myself in one of the many nooks & crannies. I discovered a heart-shaped paper that was very nice to munch on:

Last but not least, earlier this week I was Very Busy Being MAD. My AB Karen decided that because she put Nasty Flea Stuff on her Cats and Dogs at her house, she should go ahead and put Nasty Flea Stuff on me, too. I knew something was wrong because AAB Traitor Christine was holding me and AB Traitor Karen was trying to give me a treat--this has NEVER EVER happened before, so I was suspicious.

Then I thought AB Traitor Karen petted me between the shoulder blades, but it was really her putting the Nasty Stuff on me and I don't like it because it makes my neck furs look stupid and so I fired her. She cried a lot, and I didn't want to do the State Report all by myself, so I re-hired her on the condition that she give me a few treats.

Here I was Busy being Mad.

One Busy B(oss),

Oh Tober!!! Trickery is never a good thing! We hope your mad face made them feel guilty!!

We like your bulletin board. We hope you can get some of those flowers and leaves off of it!

SuziQCat said...

Tober you have been a busy kitty for sure. Don't waste time being mad though, there are more important things to do!

The Whiskeratti said...

You have every reason to be mad! But it seems y'all have made up. And wow, are you a busy kitteh. We didn't know library werk could be so ...well... busy.

JC said...

You almost look like your eyes are crossed. Oh sorry you weren't going for the cute mad look were you ...

Busy is better than bored!!

Tober, we are happy you only fire the employees for a short time. You are a good, busy, boss.
Also, we think a short leap and the roses will be yours!

Oskar said...

Tober you do a very good MAD face!

Nubbin wiggles,

I don't get that flea stuff very often, but it makes me very mad too. I won't even speak to my human when she puts it on me. OTOH, I don't get cool bulletin boards made for me either, so you are still quite a fortunate kitty.

The Island Cats said...

All that busy made us tired, Tober!!

Hi Tober. Bea Buttons and Timmy don't like their flea stuff put on either and try to escape and give me disapproving looks afterwards! By the way u look as gorgeous as ever. We want to travel to USA to see u! Wish it wasn't so far.

Cat Mandu said...

Hi, Tober. It doesn't look like they give you much time to "meditate". You have to be careful about the fleas. You never know what those guys bring into the library when they visit!

OKcats said...

Ohhh, Mr. Tober, that flea stuff is very very nasty, so we think you were right to be mad at those traitors. We always crack up when you fire your staff!! We would fire ours, but then no one would feed us Fancy Feast or Greenies or Temptations.

ellie said...

Buttons, Bea and timmy think your new bulletin board is great!We like the love hearts. We love nibbling things and have been busy tearing out shapes on cardboard boxes today!

Humans can be very sneaky. You were right to be suspicious, Tober. Now that they feel contrite for making you suffer through this ordeal, you should demand extra special treats as compensation. Works for me! Guilt trips can be quite effective on people.
