The Cat Days of August

Well, August is in full swing, summer reading is officially over, and the back to school hubbub has begun.  As a result of all that, there are significantly fewer people visiting the library now than during the summer.  This is a good and a bad thing for a cat like me.
The Good- Its much quieter for taking naps.
The Bad- Fewer chin scratches and tummy rubs from all the loving patrons.

Here I am staring longingly out the door wishing someone would come in and pet me.

Where is everyone?
Despite there being fewer humans around, I've still found plenty to do.  Just the other day I found a big black ugly bug and meowed at it till Barb got rid of it.  This is an extremely important job because Newbie Lillian greatly dislikes big bugs (she still has looooottss to learn, like how to give me a proper tummy rub) .  A couple days later something strange was in the trash, so I checked it out to make sure it was safe, or if it was possibly something delicious to eat!
/Sniff/ /Sniff/

I guess Alec thought I wasn't going to share whatever it was, because he moved all the trash into the trash can under his desk!

I never did figure out what was in the trash can, but I'm fairly positive it would have been tasty.  Oh well.
