People and fur people who are Disciples of Otis,
It’s Thomas. There they are again. It happens almost every night. There was a slight adjustment when Her Majesty the Queen moved in with us, and another adjustment when Leader Otis departed, but they have still continued the tradition. It looks so cozy and peaceful!
Sometimes I sit underneath them just to be close. During those times, Brother Henry usually comes down to visit me, and he coaches me on letting go of my remaining fear. Leader Otis used to do this too, and I am pretty sure that He asked Brother Henry to continue encouraging Me in His absence.
And I have felt encouraged. Actually, just the other night, the big Guardian was sitting on the couch with Her Majesty sitting next to him. I decided that I might try to jump up on the blanket at the opposite end of the couch. When I jumped up there though, Her Majesty growled loudly at me! I assumed that She was upset that I was not out on patrol assuring Her safety as She rested. I immediately jumped back down and retreated to a high observation point on the big cat tree with drawers.
I have decided though, that someday I shall join them there on the couch. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow… but someday. Preferably when Her Majesty is already sound asleep. Otherwise, She will not be amused.
