New Snack Bar!

I am pleased to announce that My Library has a new cat-friendly snack bar!

For a comparison, let me show you the old snack bar:

If you will notice, it is filled with bland (i.e. un-smelly or -Catnip-y) items like juice, crackers, and chips. The children, they LOVE these snacks. The Library Cat. . . not so much.

So I was pleasantly surprised when a Mr. Chris Griggs visited and stocked a snack bar for Me:

I like fishes 'cause they're so delicious. . .

There is a nice variety of snacks in there, although they are very Small. (That is okay, because I'm kind of Small, too.)

Oh, wait. What?

Oh, so apparently these fishes aren't snacks at all. They're decorative, kind of like those bottles of oil infused with garlic and peppers and carrots and stuff. I can look, but no snacking.

I had AAB Photographer take some pictures of the fishes. She has never tried to photograph swimming fishes before, so it was quite a challenge (especially for her).

Here is a little Orange fish. He is Nemo:

We have two Dory-fishes. Here is one of them:

We also have lots of Crabby-things. NOTE: This is a different kind of Crabby than the Crabby I see when the Library ladies haven't had coffee and/or chocolate. THAT kind of Crabby makes these little Crabby-things look like sweet fluffy baby bunnies:

Now that we have more exciting fishes living in the snack bar fish tank, it's hard getting the staff to DO anything--like feed me dinner on time. They're taking this "fish tanks are relaxing" thing way too far. Pretty soon they'll have a La-Z-Boy installed at the Youth Circulation Desk.

Me, I'm just biding my time. Here I am using my superior mental powers to bend the staff to my will:

One day they'll forget to close the lid on that treat can. And when they do,

I'll probably be asleep.

Waiting for appetizers,

Love those swimming dinners, Tober. Wish my library had some.

Just when you are really in the mood for some fishies, send one of your staff to a live bait shop and pick up a cup of minnows for you. It would be a nice dinner treat, something different from your usual kibble or whatever you get.

Just a thought, Tober!

Tober, that's just a special kind of TV set.

Mmmm! Those fishes look tasty, we mean beautiful! Could spend hours watching them swimming :)

I love your new snack bar, Tober! Now if you can just figure out how to get it to dispense the treats...

Maybe one of your staff could bring you some shrimp or tuna. That way you could have your fish and they can have theirs. Course, you wouldn't get the thrill of the chase, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. ;)

Mummy is dribbling over those "Lays" crisps. She only has them when she goes on holidays cause they don't sell them here. I bet they are keeping the lid on your snack bar until the fishes have grown a bit more for you. Love the Nemo and Dory fishies, they are sooooo cute :)xx

Tober, thinking about crabby, our Mommy has a "Beware of the Attack Crab" sign posted in our kitchen! She means the coffe and choccie type...


Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

ROFL Tober! Well, for your patience with those fishies, you deserve a REAL kitty snack bar! Tell your staff to make you one and stock it with treats, tuna and catnip!

We are a bit concerned that all your assistants aren't helping you blog. Do we need to come have a talk with them?
