The Posing Bench

My Disciples,

Yesterday afternoon, the Guardians put something strange out in the middle of the living room. It was hard and curved and cardboard. Brothers Henry and Oliver discovered it first, and they were at a loss to determine what it was.

The Brothers discovered the strange object first. They couldn’t figure out what it was.

Stumped, The Brothers told Me about the thing in the living room. I had to see it for Myself. I limped in there to take a look. It was indeed strange.

The Brothers were right, this object was bizarre.

I looked closer and found that the wavy cardboard thing was covered in catnip. This indicated to Me that the Guardians definitely wanted the Brothers and Me to use this mystery object.

The object was covered in catnip. Clearly the Guardians wanted The Brothers and Me to use it.

Then I had a flash of inspiration. I remembered when the Guardians were looking at a book full of pictures of themselves when they were kids. In some of the photos, they were posing on random, weirdly shaped objects. I deduced that this cardboard thing must be some kind of posing bench for kitties! I decided to give it a try. Sure enough, as soon as I posed one of the Guardians snapped a photo of Me!

Yes! I think I figured it out. This weird thing was meant to be posed on for photos.

I was thrilled that I had figured out what the mysterious object was for, but I also discovered that the object was very comfortable. It wasn’t long before the posing bench became a sleeping bench.

I fell asleep on the posing bench. It was just too comfortable.

When I woke up, My cheek was a bit slobbery, but I was pleased to find that most of My drool had been collected in the numerous cardboard channels in the posing bench. This made Me wonder though, was the primary purpose of the bench posing or sleeping? In the end I decided that I may never know. After all, the Guardians work in mysterious ways…
