People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis,
In general, I don’t like change. Sure, sometimes change is good, like when the Guardians swept me up and brought me into The Promised Land, but for the most part even minor changes make me feel like I’m going to lose my stuff. And to be honest, when the Guardians brought me inside, I did lose my stuff! I even bit one of them, which I found out later is a HUGE no-no.
Anyway, despite my dislike for change, today I decided to try something new. Brothers Henry and Oliver are always going on about how comfy the couch is to sleep on. I’ve always preferred to sleep underneath the couch, but I have to admit I have been very curious about what it’s like up there on top. So I decided to go for it. When no one else was around I jumped up on the couch to see whether or not its comfiness had been exaggerated.
After sitting there for several minutes, I had to admit it was pretty comfy. I mean, it wasn’t quite as amazing as I expected considering all the buzz from Brothers Henry and Oliver, but it was nice. I liked it.
Just as I was about to lay my head down and take a quick nap, the bigger Guardian came into the room. I felt a little tense, but I had become so comfortable I decided not to do what I would usually do which is get the heck out of there. Instead, I stayed put as the Guardian sat down on the opposite end of the couch. I even allowed him to take a selfie with me, although I kept a close eye on him as he did.
After the selfie, the Guardian just stayed on his end of the couch and watched some TV. Since I was so tense during the selfie, I hadn’t noticed that the sun had begun shining in through the window and directly onto my paws and belly! The warmth was amazing, and I suddenly realized why the Brothers were always going on about resting on top of the couch. None of these golden rays ever reached my resting spot under the couch! So there I was, a nice soft blanket and super cushy cushion below me, and warm sunlight shining in on me. As Leader Otis used to say about things he really liked, it was glorious! I soon found myself forgetting that the Guardian was nearby and falling asleep as I basked in the warm glow.
Several hours later a noise woke me up (probably a rabid wiener dog preparing to attack) and I darted off to one of my safey-safes. Still, I had tried something new… and I liked it! It makes me wonder, what else might I be missing out on? Maybe, someday, I’ll gather the courage to find out.
