With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish
Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library
I do hope mew've all had a lovely week since my last post, I'm afraid there's not much to tell today as - see pic below - this is what I've spent the last few days doing! OOPS! MOL
It's a hard life for senior kitty at BBHQ; the fire gets stoked, the blanky gets changed, I get brushed, I get oodles of cuddles, food is freely available when I demand it and sleep is blissful, so in essence I've actually achieved nothing and I've loved effury moment of it!
Do mew effur get weeks like that, where effurything seems too much of a chore and it's easier just to take a step back and breathe? Honestly it's happening more and more frequently to me recently, I don't know if it is my time of life, my age, my crotchetiness, or just the cold weather... but whateffur it is I'm really enjoying this new vibe of being, the stillness and just being able to let go of all the silly, mundane things which the wurld keeps throwing at us relentlessly.
I don't need to be ON 24 hours a day, or be connected 24 hours a day, or be checking my Angry Amber insta account effury 3 minutes to see if some nice kitty has followed me or liked one of my pics, or to feel the pressure of posting something just because - I don't need that constant pressure of being in the moment online.
I want to be in moment next to fire, sleeping, reading, looking out of the window and doing a spot of burd-watching, ambling in my library, sorting my books etc etc...
Are mew guys feeling the shift, or is it just me? Let me know your thoughts in the comments...
Some people mistakenly believe they own their cats, however these people are totally delusional! What is really going on is that they have unwittingly entered themselves into indentured servitude, and whether they realize it or not their life is no longer their own, your cat OWNS you!
So what did I think to this book? Well to start with I thought it was going to be just another fun, Meow Out Loud book, but actually while it is that in places as mew relate to common cat capers, it's also a very clever instruction manual for hoomans.
It has sections on: Going To The Vet. What Not To Eat. Common Ailments. Travelling With Your Cat and various other topics such as brushing, playtime, sleeping and even a bit of cat history through the ages which I can see would be supurr informative for any hooman staff.
This would be an ideal book for anyone new to being cat staff. And would also be ideal for more seasoned staff to compare their own findings with, as mew can never have too much info. And from purrsonal experience, there's always someone else knows something that mew don't.
We cats are pernickety creatures who like things just so, and if our needs are not being met in the correct manner we are not afraid to show our disapproval in the slightest, as newbie staff and seasoned pro's can attest to time and time again.
My advice aftur 17 years of managing the BBHQ staff, get the book cod dammit and make sure mew get the staff to read it!
Keep calm and read on
