As I was trying to nap in the sun yesterday, I was suddenly awoken by a racket above Me. I was a little disoriented at first, and I couldn’t figure out what was making the sound.
I sat up and listened carefully. I heard small feet running back and forth. Since it was above Me, I assumed it was coming from the roof.
Then I figured it out. Squirrels. Yes, I was sure it was squirrels going nuts up on the roof. I yelled, “HEY YOU LITTLE FURRY RODENTS! KEEP IT DOWN UP THERE! I’M TRYING TO SLEEP!”
After I yelled, the noise stopped. It was completely silent for several seconds. I listened intently to see if the squirrels were going to defy Me or heed My command.
Suddenly, I heard a tiny voice coming down from up above. It said, “Ummmmm… I’m sorry Leader Otis. I was just playing with a toy up here in Kitty Valhalla. I didn’t know I was disturbing you. Please don’t call me names though. I’ll be quiet…” It was Thomas. There had never been any squirrels on the roof, just Thomas playing up in his safey-safe, and I had yelled at him. I felt terrible. I shouted up to Thomas, “Sorry Junior Agent T! I thought it was squirrels making all that noise! Please carry on. Don’t worry about Me!” But Thomas replied, “No, Leader Otis. That’s OK. I’ll just take a nap. I feel bad that I disturbed you.” I laid back down, but there was no way I was going to get back to sleep.
After a few minutes, I got up and went upstairs to Kitty Valhalla. Thomas looked at Me with wide eyes at first, but when he realized I was just there to take a nap with him, he started giving Me the kitty kissy eyes. We both drifted off to sleep, and we remained asleep until we were both woken up by two squirrels making a racket on the roof.
So Sayeth Otis
