Lou’s List of Thanks

Dear Human,

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I suppose I can share with you just a few of the things you should be thanking me for.

First and foremost, you should be thanking me for how well I rocked that pilgrim hat

I will provide you with a series of examples to help inspire your thank you notes, but please keep in mind that your praises need not be limited to these few items.

7. I am an excellent alarm clock. I will make sure you are always up on time and never late to work.

wake up
4:45 AM is not that early…

6. Not only will I help you get to the clinic in a timely manner, I will also help you increase the standards of patient care. For example, I always make the patients feel comforted and supported.

No, I don’t consider this to be invasive

5. I am an excellent multitasker. You don’t have to take my word for it, I can provide an example. Here I am holding numerous objects and looking completely fabulous at the same time.

No further explanation needed

4. Have work to do and need to vacate your comfortable lounging location? Never fear, I will keep it warm for you.

3. I can also warm tables.

You put this blanket out for me, right?

2. And chairs. Really any surface you think you might need to make use of, I can keep warm for you.

I’m sorry, were you planning on sitting here?

1. And last but not least, have you seen me? I’m gorgeous! And you are lucky enough to get to work with me every single day. If that’s not something to be thankful for then I’m not sure what is.

The Cat Who Cried Wolf

Dear Human,

It seems I have angered my staff. It’s really quite unfair because they have no reason to be upset with me. If anything, I should be the one upset regarding the grievous injustice that occurred last night. I reached out in my hour of need to those I thought I could trust and was completely ignored.

What does a cat need to do to get some attention around here? I was waiting all night cold, lonely, and sticky. They’re lucky that tape eventually fell off on its own. I could have been stuck for hours. I could have starved to death! It’s as if they don’t even care about me at all.

How dare they be angry with me?!

“Lou,” they told me, “That phone is only for emergencies.” “Lou,” they complain, “You woke me up from a sound sleep for no reason!” “Lou, don’t be so needy.”

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever. See if I come to their aid when they ask me for help.

“But Lou,” you exclaim with concern, “this is your staff! Isn’t it important that they devoutly worship you?”

Well of course it is, but it’s not that hard to accomplish. They may be angry with me now but they will quickly regret my supposed transgressions when I turn my charms on them.

I mean, look how majestic I am.

Look at me!

It doesn’t get much cuter than this

How can you not help but kiss and make up when faced with so much magnificence?

I <3 Boxes

Dear Human,

If you read my previous post, The Truth About Boxes, then you should know that part of my mission here at PLVH involves acquiring as many boxes as possible. I take charge of receiving all shipments here so that I can have first pick of the boxes. This is a task that is very near and dear to my heart. I have countless uses for the boxes including, but not limited to, napping, hiding, snoozing, playtime, and building impenetrable fortresses.

Much to my dismay, I ran into some snags during my last acquisition. The postman left the box outside the door as he was directed, but it was quite a heavy shipment and I found trying to drag it inside on my own to be quite exhausting. I tried to round up help, but no one was responsive to my plight.

I hope they know that they are solely responsible for my sleepless night.

Despite the displeasing delay, operation “Box Takeover” was eventually completed. I think the humans have begun to realize they were remiss in causing the delay, as they have been trying to cater to my every need ever since.

The bottom line is that I have prevailed and the box is mine. Forever.

Comfortable after all,

Lou
