Tober, Cover-Cat


The Lebanon Reporter (that's our local newspaper) is reviving a local quarterly magazine, called B Magazine.  Guess who they selected to be on the cover of the very first issue???


Look at me!  I'm on the cover of a real-for-real magazine!  AAB Karen got to be on the cover, too, since someone had to hold me up.  I think that the reporter took an excellent photo of the two of us together.  I am looking handsome and imposing, as usual, and Karen is smiling because, well, who WOULDN'T smile when holding such a handsome cat?  

Now, the article is well-written and overall very good, even if it does go on about Karen a bit more than it does about ME.  Hats off to Sara Lang for being a very hard worker and good writer.  I do have a few bones to pick with some folks around here, though.

Exhibit A:

Let me help, in case you don't feel like biggifying this picture.  It says, right there in black and white, that "Tober is jokingly referred to as the boss of the library."

JOKINGLY?  Who's joking?  I very seriously am the Boss! (For what it's worth, that second sentence is absolutely True.)

And then, I read this little tidbit, which I will call Exhibit B:

"He's a little spoiled. . ."  Do you see a problem with this statement?  Friends, I am not being properly spoiled--there must be opportunity for MORE spoiling.  Apparently my staff has been withholding treats and tummy rubs and gum wrappers and probably even spoiling techniques that I'm not even aware of yet!  

I'm working on a staff memo this afternoon.

Just "a little" spoiled,

Tober, BOSS

I am appalled, Tober! Don't you have even one person who will speak FOR you, the Boss, at that Library? Sounds as if someone is a little jealous of you being Boss,thats what I think.

Good luck, Tober, ask that magazine to do a retraction, why don't you? They would probably love to do it and you could get the facts out. Be sure and copy that Memo of yours to the magazine.

That is so cool, Tober! Concatulations, as Sparkle the Designer Cat would say. Well-deserved PR coverage of you and your library.

I always knew you were super famous, Tober. This just proves it. In writing.

Geez, Tober, I can't believe the attitude of SOME journalists! "Jokingly?" "Spoiled?" Hm. At least you look very dignified on the cover photo.

Jokingly needs to be struck from every copy of that magazine! And us cats require spoiling! It is one of the things we were created for! Man, you have more stamina than we do.....still training all your minions. They must be really thick skulled for them to not have learned these things yet!

Concatulations on the magazine cover!
