Disciples of The Leader Otis,
Brother Henry here. When we last left off, Brother Oliver had chowed down on some fresh catnip, and Leader Otis told Brother O to save some for Him. Well, after The Leader said that, Brother Oliver stepped aside and let Him move in for a closer look at the catnip.
The Guardian saw The Leader inspecting the catnip, and she said, “Do you want a piece Otis?” She then plucked a leaf off the plant and handed it to Leader Otis. He gulped it down quickly.
After The Leader downed the leaf, the nip seemed to take effect almost immediately. He laid down on his side and said, “Ahhhhhhh.” The Guardian didn’t seem to notice. She plucked another leaf and offered it to The Leader.
I could tell The Leader hesitated for a moment, possibly thinking it might not be a good idea to overdo it with the fresh nip. Before too long, though, I saw him opening his mouth to accept the leaf.
The Leader slowly chewed the second nip leaf, but I could tell it was a little too much for Him. He seemed determined to finish it though.
As Leader Otis finished his second leaf, His eyes closed. He lay still, and seemed to drift off into nip-blivion. I could watch no longer. I knew The Leader would be safe sleeping off the nip under the watchful eyes of The Guardian… even though she had been responsible for his apparent over-indulgence. I headed back into the house to make sure all the water bowls were full. I figured Both Brother Oliver and The Leader would need to rehydrate soon.
So Says Brother Henry
