So it's the last half of September, and I'm buried under work trying to accomplish a major relocation of my book stock done by the 30th. There's also the whole garden catastrophe that needs to be cleaned up. And the winterize-the-house-stuff.
This all pales in importance when Oscar announces he has issues. Seems he remembers the month of October is dedicated more-or-less to the black kitties in the household, being Samhain or Halloween.
He anticipates feeling neglected. Therefore, all other activity must come to a full stop in order to provide poor baby Oscar with some one-on-one attention.
It's a hard job, but someone has to do it. Amazon will have to wait.
Ever seen that T-shirt that says "Cats were gods in ancient Egypt. They have never forgotten this."
Oscar wrote that.
For the moment he is somewhat content, although realistically there will never be enough attention paid to the kitties of the household (see that little pink tongue tip?).
Meanwhile, the black cats are patiently lurking on the staircase, just waiting for Halloween.....their season is just about here.
Mom to an 20-yr-old. After 10 years of homeschool/unschooling adventure she's now working her magic in college. Following a 15 year stint in the corporate sales world, I've spent the last 11 years as an online bookseller with my pup Chewy (Chewybooks on Amazon, Chewyboo on ebay), previous to that I managed a bachelors degree from a radical college, built a small greenhouse 2 years ago and 500 gallon rain barrel system last year.
