Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here. I’ve been doing my best to avoid getting Mama Cat all worked up, and I’m getting pretty good at defusing her when she does. But you know what? I think it is in her longterm best interest if she starts facing her inner demons and figuring out how to defuse herself. It’s going to be a long road since her life in Limbo conditioned her to believe that every cat is a potential attacker, but I know she can learn to leave the past in the past.
To help Mama Cat along the road to recovery, I’ve been purposely pushing her boundaries… just a little. I start with a little instigation. Let me show you what I men.
So I had instigated and Mama had responded. There we were face to face. The next move was mine, and I intended to make it count.
So Sayeth Brother Oliver
