As I have posted here many times, I really only have one boss in my home, and he’s a black-and-white cat named Thai.
Work just fascinates him. He can watch me toil away for hours.
However, this past weekend he did decide to lend a hand on a household task and I was impressed with his willingness to get his paws into some real work.
We bought a new runner for our hallway. As anyone who has ever purchased a runner knows, they come rolled up in a tight little bundle and need to be unfurled to place them on the floor.
They never lay completely flat because since the day they came off the assembly line, they have been bound in this tight roll.
Thai, however, took it upon himself to roll all over the new runner, attempting to smooth out the lumps.
Oh sure, he was probably enjoying the texture and depositing his scent on it so everyone knows that this rug, along with all the others in our house, belongs to him. Still, I prefer this think that this was some initiative on his part to be a contributing member of the household.
Thanks, Thai. You’re the best.
