Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Desktop Kitty

by Tanner Dempsey Mushkeau
(youngest household cat)

One of my jobs as a house kitty iz to help my mommy when she iz in her study. I iz learning to be a good office assistant. Here iz some of my jobs:

 I checks the wastebasket.

I checks every little crevice.

It looks OK.

 I unpacks boxes.

I clears off the desk top. I don't clean floors though.

I dusts the keyboard. My tail iz a good duster.

I iz learning to use office supplies. It iz not easy to get the top off a pen.

I might be biting the wrong end. 

I haz not quite figured out how the stapler works either. 

When I get it to work, I will test it on Jim-Bob's tail.

That reminds me: Another job I haz is that I tries to keep other cats from messing up the desk, but it iz not easy. Sometimes I haz to remind Chloe that she haz to get down.

Chloe iz not too bad to deal with. Her brother Jim-Bob iz a big problem. No matter how nice I asks him to leave, he won't go. Sometimes he wants to fight me.

I hate when Jim-Bob wins the fight.

One of these days, he will realize that I iz the boss on this desk top.
