Slice of Life 6: My Kitties’ Agenda
By Janice Ewing
6:00 Wake up large creatures who care for us with persistent, plaintive meowing for food
630 Post-breakfast nap
6:45 Do a slow and thorough inspection of the house, checking to see if anything has changed
7:00 Check out the bathroom after large creatures take showers;
(optional) perch between shower curtain and liner, poke at liner for interesting sound effects
7:15 Time for another nap, preferably in a sunny spot
7:30 Repeat inspection (see 6:45)
7:45 Stop at kitchen door where string hangs from doorknob, wait (semi)patiently for big creature to dangle it suggestively, attack
8:00 Consider possibility of another nap; yes, it’s been a busy morning.
