the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

I was trapped by a cardboard box

This morning I was walking into the laundry room to eat my breakfast, when I was caught in a cat trap.

I have told my staff countless times, “Put the boxes from the grocery store  in recycling immediately. They are traps. Do not leave them out.”

My staff did not listen. I will hold a staff meeting this morning right after breakfast. I must find out who is responsible. Leaving out cat traps is not good for office moral.

I will have to put the recycling infraction on my staff’s performance evaluation. This could put the staff member on the B team. My staff must be continually striving to be on the A team.

It is important to always do your best work.

    Many a cat (or me, 137 times at last count) have been trapped in a box.

    • Good Morning Amindele,

      You have been trapped in a cardboard box many times. I have never counted, but today I will start counting.
      All the best,
      Love Pooh

    Pets like to be trapped in the cardboard boxes. It’s fun for children and pets.

    I feel for you! I feel real bad.
    Stuff happens.
    Come outside with me and chase squirrel.

    You will feel better.
    You will forget to be upset.
    We will have fun.

    • Hello Edelweiss,

      Will you help rescue me from the box? I would love to chase squirrel’s with you.
      All the best, love Pooh.
