After My horrifying experience yesterday in Kitty Valhalla, I think I am suffering from PTBSD (Post-traumatic Barfathon Stress Disorder). The Guardians have assured Me that Valhalla is now clean and back to normal, but I just can’t bring Myself to go back up there. Every time I think about climbing those stairs the memories of what I saw come flooding back. To make matters worse, earlier today I had this sudden, terrifying feeling that whenever I took a step I might end up with My paw in a big, warm hairy barf! I ended up sitting in the middle of the rug in the living room for three hours because I was terrified to move!
Eventually My fear subsided and I was able to travel to My food bowl without incident. I still couldn’t visit Valhalla though and I’m not sure when I will be comfortable doing so again. In the meantime I shall seek a cure for PTBSD so that I can find a way to let go of My irrational fear. And if I don’t end up finding a cure, then perhaps I will command the Guardians to create some little barf-proof booties for Me. Actually, I might do that anyway, because I think it would be pretty cool to be called Puss in Booties.
