I'm being helpful as always. Mom and Auntie Mary have plans for today but they were STILL asleep this morning when they should have been up, so I helpfully rubbed noses with Mom so she'd wake up. She was very grateful and jumped up so she could go do that strange thing of standing under the water. Now I can relax in the glow of a job well done. Also, I've been on good terms with Auntie Mary most of the week. I checked her out thoroughly and declared her Threat Free. I've even graciously allowed her to give me head scritches.
Toby though... that boy has been UTB most of the week. Scaredy cat.
Leia, Leia... as usual, you have it wrong. I am NOT a scaredy cat!
I'm simply performing a very in-depth threat assessment here.
These things take time, y'know.
Can I help it if all Auntie Mary's references haven't come back yet???
And then they have to be verified, and a committee formed to render a decision,
and there is an appeals process....
