Let me tell you, being a roving tattler reporter has its challenges. The second you take a break from your duties, someone whips out a camera to capture your moment of rest. AND TELLS THE WORLD THIS IS ALL YOU DO!

*shakes head* This is simply not true. Why, just the other day, I was counting the bottles in this rack and thought to myself, “Yep. The same number as last week.” Then I wondered, “Wouldn’t counting the empty slots be more revealing?”

So many different angles to work!

But I won’t lie. The job has its perks too. Sometimes, when something good is going on, I, alone, need to be in the forbidden zone, otherwise known as the dining room table because I’m working. I’m gathering incriminating evidence investigating! Do you think I care that I’m where I’m not supposed to be?

In other news, Maxx and Tessa went in for their yearly v-e-t checkups yesterday and both came through with flying colors! In fact, big boy Maxx (sometimes known as Mr. Bubbles, the Drama Cat), who has been on a diet for over a year, has gone from sixteen pounds four ounces to fifteen pounds one ounce. Our v-e-t was very happy about that and we are too. Way to go, Mr. Bubbles!

  1. All the world belongs to cats, so being on the table means nothing, right Olivia? Great news on Maxx and Tessa!

  2. The humans can surely manage to eat on the floor if they go for a picnic so why can’t we take a turn on the table? Maxx well done you have made a great start to your diet.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

    Concats to Mr. Bubbles. Tessa, you are a lovely panfur, and we think that gives you the right to go wherever your heart leads you even if it is the dining room table. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. Darling, of course you are very busy. And naturally you deserve some breaks every so often!
    PS: We’re glad the Stabby Place visits went well.

  5. WTG Mr. Bubbles. Mom said that the doctor man wanted both of us on a diet. Hemingway lost weight so he’s around 20 pounds now. Shakespeare goes to see the doctor man soon and we’ll know how he’s doing. Olivia, we think you are doing a wonderful job of overseeing the cat kingdom! Keep up the good work. 🙂

  10. Our dining table is OUR dining table too. 😉

  11. Olivia, there is NO such thing as a place where kitties aren’t allowed! Haven’t your humans learned that yet?

  12. When you’re reportin’ the news, you need to be where you need to be. There can be no doubt about it.

  13. Woot! Way ta go on the weight loss! We’re doing the same over here!!

  14. Tables were meant to be sat on by cats…that’s our story and we’re sticking to it, Olivia. 🙂

  15. Black cats can go anywhere they want. It’s the law!

  16. Way to go, Mr. Bubbles! We love that nickname.

  17. All the house belongs to the cats, and we’re kind enough to allow humans to live with us ! Purrs

  18. Concats to Mr. Bubbles on the weight loss! We gave up on the dining room table. Jenna gets up there whenever she wants to…

  19. Querida Olivia você tem trabalho duro, acho que você merece um descanso… sem câmeras hehehehe

  20. We make our own rules, too, Olivia. 🙂 Yay for Maxx and Tessa’s good checkups!

  21. It’s only right that a reported get in the midst of things, even if that means being on the table.
