Ever since I discovered the severity of My health problem I have felt a sense of urgency to find ways to ensure that My message continues to be heard after I am gone. I wanted to do more before I depart. More specifically, I wanted the Guardians to do more. So I put them to work.
By now you have probably noticed the banner at the top of this page is a little different. I figured that, since Sir Thomas and Mama Cat are now official members of The Inner Circle, they should take their rightful place at My side in the banner. I have also told Thomas and The Brothers that Mama Cat shall officially be known as The Essence of The Cult of Otis, because her journey from a free-roaming life of neglect to one of safety and love embodies all that we are striving for here. I tried to tell Mama Cat this, but she hissed before I got it out, and then Sir Thomas yelled, “Protect the Queen!” and jumped in between us. I’m sure she will hear of her new title soon enough.
I was pleased with the Guardians’ work on the new banner, but I made it clear that their work was not done. I wanted to see that banner on a whole new website. One that was easier to navigate, and that would contain much more useful information for those seeking to improve the lives of kitties with whom they come into contact. This week, they finished the first stage of the new site and it is now live at cultofotis.com.
OK. So, I did have a little help supervising and encouraging the Guardians as they did My bidding. Brothers Henry and Oliver joined us on the couch while Thomas hung out underneath us. Mama Cat was usually nearby on the Super Outpost Tabby Tower giving us encouragement or sass, depending on her mood at the time.
As you can see in the photo above, it was a lot of hard work, but I am proud of what the Guardians have accomplished and I know they will be adding more great content to the new site in the future.
So please visit the new cultofotis.com and let us know what you think. Also, please let us know if you find any broken links or other issues so the Guardians can fix them right away.
My time is now short, My Disciples, and I cannot tell you how much the thought of leaving you saddens Me. Still, I am confident My work will continue. The Brothers and Thomas will do their best to spread The Good Word in My absence, and maybe even Mama Cat will lend her voice to the cause. No one knows what the future holds, but I continue to hold out hope for a future in which all cats are happy, healthy, and safely confined.
So Sayeth Otis
