oh no, what did i do???

this is me, havin' a nice day, patrollin' the yard, makin' sure that everything was in order. that's my job, and it's the only job i should do. it's right up my alley, outside in the nice air and sun, with lots of places for snoozin'.

but today, i started to think ooh no, what have i done? what is one of the absolute best things ‘bout bein’ a poodin? bein’ taken care of, that’s what. how else would we be able to sleep 20 hours a day? how else would we be able to gaze contentedly out the window for hours? how else would we be able to lie in a patch of sun and stretch our toes without a care in the world? it’s only because they take care of us.

i’m sorry, fellow poodins, i did a bad thing. the other day, when i was bored and i drew a picture of myself so many of you sent me nice compliments. well, when my Mom read them, i could see the little wheels start turnin’ in her head. she looked at me and said “Edsel, all your friends really like your drawing. and you’ve been blogging, you know how to write and you
haven’t run out of things to talk about like you were afraid of.” and then she said “since you can draw too, i bet you could write a children’s book! how exciting.” and before I knew what was happenin’, she was setting up a “work space” for me so i can work while she’s at work!! now what do I do??? i don’t want to work, it’s not right for a little poodin to work, oh what have I done?????

Hey, a book's not a bad thing. You can make some kitty crack money--unless your People steal it to buy themselves a topless car and pay stabby place bills...

That sounds like a good thing Edsel. A kitty needs to do something & if you're inside writing you won't be outside in the cold thats coming soon!!

Edsel... it be okay.... your Mom just thinks you would be good at writing book. She would never want you to run away - she loves her handsome man too much.

Hey Edsel, Writing a book from a poodin's perspective might be a lot of fun. You could educate little humans on how cats think and how to treat us like the very special beings we are. Maybe you could at least give it a try. You might find that you actually like it. Sometimes when you find something you really enjoy doing, it doesn't seem like work at all. Just make sure your Mom compensates you properly with 'nip, crunchies, toys, and petting.
