wow i am so honored that I have been chosen as a diary o the day! I'm just an old cat trying to make the best o my retirement years. Mom had a really rotten night; a neighbor tried to start a fight with her over something mom didn't even do. my mom is very quiet and stays to herself around here. it is so stupid that humans and animals have to start fights with each other. the lady told my mom she was fat, nasty and because she has five o us in the house she was not clean. That is such rubbish! My mom takes us all to the vet. She gives us baths once a month, clips our nails every six weeks and combs us three times a week. She and dad feed us very well. We get lots of love. Now it is true sometimes the house gets littered with papers and so forth that Angel of Peace knocks over and my parents are so tired they wait to pick them up. But mom got so upset by what the mean lady said tonight she called out of work and has been up all nightcleaning everything in a frenzy. Dad has been worried sick about her, but mom is the type of human once someone accuses her of something (like not being clean) she will go and work in a frenzy to make sure it's not true. But then if mom doesn't slow down she'll get sick. Then to top it all off Angel of Peace went into the kitchen and knocked over an entire pitcher of fruit punch on the counter. That is actually what set mom off after the fight with the mean lady. I will just be my normal self and let mom know we all love her and know what the lady said is not true.
Today is the first day of my official retirement from the Furry Federation. Of course I'll be available for consulting work, but I have a feeling they will not need my advice. I do feel a bit out o sorts, but mommy says I'll be fine. This month she is also decreasing her hours at work from 40 to 32. She says it will be a gradual process, but she is also easing herself into a sort of early retirement. She says we'll learn how to deal with it together.
