A few days ago, when I was acting as a mediator between Mama Cat and Brother Henry, I mentioned that maybe Mama Cat could find some way to help her manage her anger. Well, it’s almost like the Guardians can read My mind or something, because they have actually discovered an anger management tool for Mama Cat to use! And it’s a catnip banana.
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this Myself because the nip nanners have always been very soothing to Me… OK… maybe a little too soothing. But the point is, it’s working for Mama. Whenever she gets angry with the Guardians or Brother Henry, the Guardians grab the nearest banana and offer it to Mama Cat. She eagerly accepts it.
Once she is in possession of the banana, Mama takes out all of her inner frustrations on the unfortunate, inanimate thing. First, she bites it while at the same time growling and complaining.
Next, she rolls on he side and gives the anger management banana a furious pummeling with her hind feet.
Then, as quickly as it started, it is all over. Having released her anger into the banana, Mama returns to a calm, collected state.
So it seems we have found the perfect anger management tool for Mama Cat. I always tried to tell The Brothers that catnip bananas have wonderful, medicinal properties, but they always took them away from Me anyway. Hmmmm… that kind of makes Me angry. Yep, My anger is now getting way out of control. I better go find the Guardians, perhaps if they see that I am having anger management issues, they will give Me some kind of tool that will help.
