Today my servant walked up to the post office to collect a parcel, then she annoyed me greatly.
I heard her walking all over the house; I assumed she was looking for beautiful me, but I wasn’t in any of my usual spots nor did I bother to greet her as is my most condescending habit. Eventually she noticed me, sunning myself on the bathroom windowsill. I don’t normally sun myself here because my cat tray is in this room [eh hem]
Anyway, I was lying here, all stretched out and comfortable, so the servant plonks this book down in front of me as if I’m looking at it. Immediately I get to my feet. The indignity of being disturbed! The OUTRAGE of the title!! Shine light indeed – the only light around here worth mentioning is the light that shines when I lift my tail!!!
I had my revenge though [heh heh]. As you can see, this photo is somewhat dark, you can barely see the book for the light shining behind it. Well, I led the servant a merry dance. Twice she tried putting me back up on the windowsill for a better shot. Twice. You’d have thought she’d have learnt the first time. Then I trotted out to my scratching post where I was so obliging as to pose with books yesterday. I posed. She raised the camera. I leapt down.
I indicated that I wanted to go outside. She followed with the book and the camera. she tried putting me on the table outside. I didn’t even wait for her to raise the camera – with a toss of my head I slipped out of her grasp. She tried again with the chair. Close but no banana as Garfield says at bath time. Finally, desperate for some cat grass – Did I mention that I only have two measly clumps of cat grass in the ENTIRE yard?! I succumb. But only briefly. When the servant tried for a second photo, I disappeared.
