This morning it was actually nice enough outside that the Guardians kept the door to My Outdoor Domain open. Brother Oliver and I were out there for awhile, but I got a little chilled and came back inside. As I was leaving, I heard Brother Oliver say, someone’s behind the fence over there. I think I heard some movement.
Later, Brother Oliver told Me that he had been right. Shortly after I left, Cookie appeared from behind the fence. Brother Oliver greeted her and asked how she was doing.
Cookie said she was doing OK, but Mama cat has been driving her a little crazy. She said that Mama has been constantly going on about how she was told she would be able to compete in the 2012 Catlympics, but then the Catlympics never happened. Cookie said she tried to reason with Mama to make her understand that the Catlympics had been delayed due to The Leader’s Hipsterectomy and ongoing recovery, but Mama would hear none of it. Cookie was becoming very frustrated with the situation.
Brother Oliver asked Cookie if there was anything we could do to help. Cookie said that it might be helpful if we allowed Mama Cat to at least stage an exhibition. That way she would feel like the Catlympics had not been completely forgotten. Brother Oliver said he would see what he could do.
When Brother Oliver reported all of this to Me later on, I felt more than a little guilty that my surgerization had put such a damper on Mama Cat’s Catlympic ambitions. I decided to do something to remedy the situation.
