Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here.
I just want you to know that we haven’t forgotten about Valahalla. We know Thomas is hiding something up there, and Brother Henry and I still intend to get to the bottom of it. I’ve even tried to sneak up there a couple times this past week, but each time I did I encountered Thomas on the stairs. He didn’t say a word. He just gave me this look:
I’m not even sure how to interpret that look, but I’ll admit, it unnerved me a little bit. Anyway, Brother Henry and I have been kind of preoccupied ever since we tried our last ruse of telling Sir Thomas that the Catlympics were starting up again. You see, Brother Henry and I both LOVE the Catlympics, so even though we were just kidding Thomas, we have been holding our own Catlympic training sessions in secret. Brother Henry’s a bit rusty though. He has been having trouble catching the artificial bird while practicing Squatting Tiger pose.
OK, so… I admit that I’m a bit rusty too. I thought that since Thomas did such a spot-on homage to Mama Cat’s Flying Squirrel, I could do my own homage to Leader Otis’s signature “Dragon Belly” move. So far though, I don’t think I’m doing The Leader proud. In my defense, I didn’t get the same one-on-one instruction in Dragon Belly that Thomas received.
Anyway, we’ll keep trying, both at getting into Valhalla and at perfecting our Catlympic skills. Who knows, maybe if we get good enough they really will bring back the Catlympics! I better go practice some more just in case!
So Sayeth Brother Oliver
