I Only Closed Them for a Second

GEORGE

(sigh) I don't know what's wrong with my Mom & Dad. It seems like they're always doing projects around the house. Don't they know how to rest?

First it was tearing apart our old deck last summer and laying new floor boards, then the big bathroom remodeling, then the new floor in the living room. Through it all Max and I were there, doing our part...you know, the important stuff, the snoopervising...without which who knows what disaster might happen, which is exactly what I want to tell you about.

This past weekend just as I was settling in for my Sunday morning nap, Dad said we'd better get ready 'cause they were putting up the deck posts & rails today! WHAT!!! I had a quiet day planned and Max was already asleep on the top shelf. Now Dad wants us to stay awake and be sure he doesn't make any mistakes? This is really getting to be too much. Snoopervisors should get time off once in a while, shouldn't they?!

Well, so out they went anyway...got all hot, sweaty & crabby and had to keep coming in for a cool drink. Then they'd go out again and measure and carry the posts & rails around and measure some more, saw some pieces and put in some screws. Through it all I could barely keep my eyes open and must have dozed off but I woke up when I heard Mom shouting about how they cut one rail too short and she'd had it! She was crabby & hot and her back & neck hurt and she wasn't doing any more today!!!

Well, don't you know then Dad came in and asked me where I'd been and blamed me...ME!...for not snoopervising him right when he cut the rail piece too short. Apparently snoopervisors aren't even allowed to close their eyes now, for fear their humans will make a mistake!

Where do I go to file a complaint? Is there a Snoopervisor's Union?

Oh, good grief! You're a cat, for Pete's sake (who's Pete?)! Your number one priority is napping...closely followed by eating...and, uh, pooping. Snoopervising is just not a priority with us cats. Is it?

However, I don't know about a Union, but I'd be willing to bet we could form one. First thing I'd do is punish the human in my place who forgot to fill my water bowl! Then, the one who put too much water in the sink would be next in line!

When my people are crabby, I have found that under the bed is the safest place to be. Good luck!

I fink a snoopervising union is a great idea. We need wecourse to support when beans are being way too demanding.

Well, if you never nap, how do they expect you to have a clear head for all that snoopervising?

Well, I think they must expect trouble once we form a snoopervising union. Naps, temptations, naps, stinky goodness, naps.....

They just don't understand how much rest a good snoopervisor needs!

And Mommy says if they get tired of working there they are always welcome to help at our house :-)

If you can't find a Snoopervisor's Union to file your complaint with, I think you should leave your Dad a present. I suggest a nice big wet hairball yak beside the bed for him to step into ;-)

Napping is a sign of a good snoopervisor. A well-rested snoopervisor does a better job. I think you need to file a grievance.

Mom's and Dad's are all crazy, mine have let my boy go on holiday with another cat and plan to take a week off soon to decorate the kitchen and dining room here! When they mentioned time off I thought long snuggles and naps, but oh no I'll be awake and snoopervising when I should be snoozing!

George, I feel for ya, buddy. I don't know what it is about moms and dads who constantly feel they have to improve things. I mean really, when do we ever want new things, unless it's a new cat tower.
