I Need a Nap
Hi, it’s your favorite feline at FieldHaven, Hot Rod (AKA Shorty)!
Earlier this month, while Uncle Jared was at FieldHaven, I tried to hide in the laundry room. I wasn’t in trouble: I was just feeling a little tired and wanted to take a nap. There’s a special furry pink cat hutch in there that is great for napping. I couldn’t get this idea across to staff members as they kept running me out of there. When they’d forget to close the door, I’d go in again. Finally, I was able to sneak in and take my nap. When Uncle Jared had not seen me for a while, he decided to check that room. I let him know that I was there by sticking my front paws slightly out of the hutch. He let me take my nap, but he did think I was pretty darn cute in there.
That Monday was not one of my best behavior days. I won’t go into everything that went wrong, but by the end of his visit, Uncle Jared was not pleased with me. He said, “Shorty, you know that I love you. Let’s just chalk this whole day up to just one of those days when nothing goes right for you. Just so you know, if you decide to act this way next week, your shenanigans will end up in the next “Hot Rod Report.” I can guarantee you that the report will not make you look too sweet.” I just growled at him, saying, “You wouldn’t dare,” but he looked me in the eye and replied, “Try me.”
Uncle Jared made a surprise visit to FieldHaven on Wednesday. I was so glad to see him and I apologized for Monday’s behavior. He said not to worry about it as long as I behave on his future visits. I love Uncle Jared very much, even when we are fighting. I do know how special I am to him.
