On May 2, my human Sharolyn met Tiffany at the airport and spent six days with her in Indianapolis! You'll note in this representative photo that I am not there. I was left here, without my mom, with only her sister Suzanne to meet my every need, and as everyone knows, it takes more than one person to meet my needs. This is unacceptable.Therefore, when they arrived back home, I promptly bit Tiffany and leapt into my mom's lap for head squiggles, where I've tried (unsuccessfully) to remain ever since. Since my mom is continually in motion -- planning parties, preparing for a recital Tiffany will be performing, even going to spend a day with some Tibetan monks of all things, her lap is rarely available to me. This, too, is unacceptable.
Then, no sooner did I begin to accept these intrusions into my life, look what Suzanne brought into my house! Hey, this is a serious business here, not a freaking rodeo!! I'm told Suzanne has been selected to paint this colt as part of a city-wide promotion for Swope Art Gallery, similar to the Cows on Parade promotion in Chicago. It's called Horsing Around In Terre Haute (appropriate for what's been going on at our house) and celebrates our city's pride as the host city of the Indianapolis Colts' training camp. Suzanne has been hired by Union Hospital to paint the colt wearing surgical scrubs and a stethoscope.
Of course, I must snoopervise this important project. How do I get this thing to take me on a test gallop around the yard? With a cloud of dust and a hearty hi-ho Silver, away ...
Giddyup, I said!! Humph, trying to get this worthness old nag to move is as difficult as trying to get my staff to work! Again, unacceptable.Then when things calmed down from turning my home into a stable, Tiffany turned it into picnic grounds and invited scores of people over for a cookout. Here's Suzanne awaiting the invasion of humans that would freak the rest of my cat staff out so badly they hid in closets through the whole affair.
And here are the first of the human onslaught gathered around my backyard pond. Please note my absence during this 7-hour affair. Oh, right, my mom did take me outside once in my harness from Lilly Lu, but the noise these humans were making finally freaked me out and I when I started thrashing like a kite at the end of my harness, I was hustled back inside. Completely unacceptable!!
I tell you, I'm so exhausted from all this pointless activity that I think I'll spend the rest of Tiffany's visit in an extended corporate snooze!
