I Am Humbled By Your Support

My Disciples,

It has been a very long two weeks. I was surgerized, sequestered and sustained in a semi-conscious state during the first week. I was bananesthetized and continuously contained during the second week. But yesterday, after passing once more through the gates of The Bad Place, I returned home to find that My freedom had been restored! OK… so… I admit that I didn’t realize it at first. As Brother Oliver told you yesterday, there was a slight adjustment period before I really understood what was going on. As you saw though, once I understood, I took full advantage of My newfound freedom… by sleeping on the couch. It was a stressful morning! I needed the rest! Brother Oliver even joined Me and kept My head warm!

This is how I celebrated My newfound freedom. Brother Oliver is an excellent head warmer.

After sleeping for only six short hours, I decided it was time to get back to work. It was at that point that Brother Oliver filled Me in on all that had been happening with The Cult of Otis in the past two weeks. He told Me about how he, Brother Henry and even Thomas had been making sure the blog was updated every single day. He told Me about the flood of supportive comments and genuine outpouring of concern for Me and My situation. He told Me about His and Brother Henry’s launching of Operation Hipster and how it had raised more than $1,700 to help cover the cost of My surgery. I was overwhelmed with feelings of love and gratitude. I was speechless. All I could think to do was reach out and hug Brother Oliver tight to show him how much I appreciated his support.

I was overwhelmed with emotion when Brother Oliver told Me what had been happening. I had to hug him.

I will also hug Brother Henry when I get the chance, and I will tell Thomas how much I appreciate his contribution (hugging still freaks him out). What I really wish though, My Disciples, is that I could also hug each and every one of you! I am truly humbled by all that you have said and done in the past two weeks. Every purr and every paw pat is greatly appreciated.Β I know My path to recovery is still long, and will not be without its challenges, but with so many loving, kind and generous friends rooting for Me, I feel like there is no way I can fail.

Thank you, My Disciples. From the bottom of My heart, thank you all.

So Sayeth Otis

    So glad to see you back . I was just wondering; Since you have had a hipsterectomy, are you still a hipster? Continue to take it easy and let that hip heal so you can be around for a long time to come.

    Itty, Sadie, Fluff, and the Little Boy

  17. By the way, I have a message for the brothers:
    I told you guys that it was “thedailypost.wordpress.com” but it’s actually “dailypost.wordpress.com :).
    Glad you’re feeling better!

    Leader Otis, It is indeed a pleasure to hear Your voice for the first time just as I imagined it would be.

    Now, as Spitty-the-Kitty, King of California (North) and the Western Lands, Prince of Kiimamaa, I am not sure I can declare myself Your “disciple” or “subject” but I extend to You, Leader Otis, the cordial paw of furiendship and hope You will shake it in good fellowship.

  23. Aw Otis, so good to see you on the road to recovery, and to hear your voice on the blog again. Keep getting stronger sweetie!
