People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis.
I really was not asking for much. All I wanted was to sit on the Tabby Tower closest to the couch, just above the Guardian’s head. Once every five seconds I wanted her to look back over her shoulder and give me Kitty Kissy Eyes. At that point, I would return the Kitty Kissy Eyes, and then she would look forward again. I did not want her to try to pet me. I did not want her to try to play with me. I only wanted those kissy eyes spaced precisely five seconds apart. I even made it abundantly clear what I wanted, but still she would not give it to me.
Why the Guardian would not meet my simple request is beyond me. She even kind of laughed, like I was making a joke instead of a serious request. In the words of Her Majesty Queen Mama Cat, I was not amused.
Even though I only recently stopped running and hiding whenever I was out in the open and a Guardian looked at me, I still held the belief that the Guardians were very good about understanding what a cat wants and needs. In fact, Brothers Henry and Oliver have been telling me this ever since I was swept up in The Capture, and Leader Otis used to tell me this as well. After today’s events though, I am not sure what to think! Kissy eyes. Every five seconds. So simple. Give me what I want!
