Today is National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day. It is scheduled for the 22nd of January, every year. I even copied the instructions we humans should follow on this day.
If you will stop what you are doing and take a look at your cat, you will observe that the cat is looking at you with a serious question. Meditate upon it, then answer the question!
Sounds simple enough. It would probably work if the cat read the directions as well. I wanted to connect with Scooter. What question will she ask? But alas, I spent most of the day backing up files from my computer because of current glitches and my fear that the not-so-old-but-past-the-guaranteed computer period is up, and, well…the rest is history. Suffice it to say, the photos for this post were inaccessible.
Back to Scooter’s question. I did stop what I was doing. I did not see her looking up at me with a serious question. OK. I tried to do a little meditation and got nothing, so I went back to work.
As time moved forward toward happy hour, I decided to stop working and try to connect with Scooter again. I sometimes get more insightful during happy hour. Here we go….
Scooter asks: Why do you and catdad Geoff get so upset with me when I visit you while you are computing things on your machines?
Envision a wall of photographs and paintings above the desks and they are all crooked, caused by Scooter as she wanders back and forth over keyboards, notepads, and OMC! external hard drives.
Jobi: Scooter! You asked me a question and (darn I am doing it again) I will answer with a question. Do you think you are depositing a lot of your furs into the working parts of our “machines”?

I think she thought I said nappy hour.
