Stinky Sandal Sunday

Disciples of The Leader Otis,

Brother Henry here. The past week was exhausting and stressful. I worried myself sick while The Leader was at the specialty Bad Place, and I worked double-time keeping Him safe when He returned. I was very thankful today when Sir Thomas offered to take over my security duties for the day so I could get some rest. When I laid down to nap though, I found that I couldn’t sleep because I had developed a very bad tension headache.

I tried to take a nap, but I had a headache.

As I lay there rubbing my aching head. I suddenly detected a powerful, wonderful scent. The smell pierced through the pain and begged me to seek out its source. I quickly discovered that it was coming from one of the Guardians flip-floppy sandals. I inhaled deeply, savoring the smelly goodness.

The wonderful scent was coming from one of the Guardian’s flip-floppy sandals.

The scent was like super-stinky magic. My headache was gone immediately, and I was filled with visions of a warm, moist, and possibly garbage-filled cave. I was mesmerized.

I was mesmerized, mentally transported to a warm, moist, garbage-filled cave.

I completely forgot all about the stresses of the week. All I could focus on was that scent. I loved that scent. I wanted to be one with that scent. I began rubbing my head and face all over the stinky sandal so that I could take that smell with me wherever I went.

I wanted to become one with the smell. I rubbed it all over myself.

And now, here I sit, refreshed and stinky. Ready to take on whatever this day has in store for me. I declare this day “Stinky Sandal Sunday”!

I declare today “Stinky Sandal Sunday”!

And now I shall travel forth and rub this scent on all who cross my path. I am confident that it will be greatly appreciated, and it will bring all who smell it the same sense of calmness and inner peace that it has given me.

  1. “Refreshed and Stinky”–what could be better!

    Have you ever had Valerian Root? It’s like sandal stink on steroids! We’d be happy to send you some. e-mail us at katniplounge AT gmail DOT com

  2. For some of us it’s chocolate, Brother Henry. For you it’s a stinky sandal, which has the advantage of not interfering with your svelteness. I’m glad that after your stressful week, you found a source of relaxation and comfort so ready to paw. Please know that lots of people are thinking of Leader Otis and joining our purrs for Him to yours.

  3. Stinky sandals is almost as good as Valerian Root 🙂

    Our black fuzzy Bunk LOVVVES shoes of all types, stinky or not!

  5. Brother Henry! While stinky sandals are great for curing headaches and stress relief, have you tried stinky feet?

  6. I also have a shoe smelling cat. She wants to know where people have been and what they’ve been up to. Sometimes, she just wants anything with her human’s scent on it, like an old shirt or a towel in the laundry.

  7. Shoes and sweaty days working in the paddocks armpit stink are ,ost popular here too….refreshing…not hahahaha

    We are happy that Sir Thomas has advanced in his training so far as to be able to cover for Brother Henry. We are also happy Brother Henry’s encounter with the sandal has refreshed him. We think of shoes like books. Each as the ability to take us away from the work-a-day world and allows us to explore places we’ll never be able to walk through. Yesterday I enjoyed one called grocery shopping. It had an egg-ceptioal ending.

  10. Ah yes, stinky shoes and sandals have an irresistible draw for kitties. I hope you were able to share your newly acquired scent with everyone!

    Dear Brother Henry, if you think stnky sandals are nice you should try a stinky workboot at the end of the day. You can really get high on the fumes! They are are favorite kind of shoes. bandit, Selleck, and Their person, Emily.

  12. Loafing on leather. Nothing more soothing. Humans do armchair traveling – cats enjoy traveling a la shoe…not so different after all?
