This is Tiger and I thought it was time for an update lest you think I was a most unhappy cat after little you know who moved in not long ago. Not to worry. Today I was out surveying my kingdom unhindered, while the skies were blue, the leaves were fragrant underfoot and the sun was shining through the clouds. Sue sought me out and I knew she had something on her mind. I pawsed. (Little cat humor there.)
She bid me come inside so we could talk awhile. Sure, I said. I always have time for you….
Up to her office we went where I took some time to clean up while she settled into her chair.
“Don’t worry about Benji,” she said, “he’s still young and will soon grow out of his pestering ways. See how much better he is in only two months.”
I had to agree. I am now able to look upon the young cowboy with nary a hiss (well…. most of the time.) Things are looking up.
She also assured me that I, being the senior cat in residence and clearly the most handsome and charitable and reasonable one on the premises, would retain most favored feline status and all that included. Regardless of how it sometimes appeared. I was being tested daily, she continued on, but it would only make me stronger. This too I considered and had to agree. I am strong. And most reasonable.
She has always been straight with me and trustworthy too. And I the same with her.
She needed reassurance that I was still happy and on board with the newcomer. Certainly I was, yes. I pledged my continued cooperation while the youngster grew out of his worst traits. (Too many to mention here.)
And thus, I am still happy, with most favored feline status and with top billing,
