A Beneficent Mistress

So I designate myself after giving the Prime Minister some time off this weekend. The first was for a sleep study. She had increasing problems with fatigue and her MDs wanted to have her air pressure checked on her breathing machine before they prescribe anything. She said she slept well, but how could she when I was not cuddling with her? That was the 24th and 25th.

Then, yesterday she had the day off. I allowed her time to prepare a present for one of her friends in the office. That person is leaving for a new job with a very small agency that has an even smaller budget. A bunch of people agreed to buy things for her desk or office supplies in order to get her off to a good start. They gave them to the friend today. There will be more gifts later in the week from others as the friend gets ready to leave on Friday.

The Prime Minister found an old bulliten board and re-covered it with some coordinating fabric and trims. It was the first time she used a staple gun, which was harder that she thought. It was kind of funny to watch her. She also said that hammering brass tacks was harder than she expected it to be.

She also went to a dollar store and a resale shop for other things. She found a green muffin tin and a ruler that she painted daisies on to personalize them. She found a holder for some notepads someone else was giving her. And a tote bag for it all that had the American Flag on it. Since the friend's son is in the Marines, the friend especially appreciates things with the flag on it.

The PM enjoys doing this kind of thing and it's a good Jewish thing to do, so I usually let her do them when she wants.

Our Bittersweet Loss

It is with great sadness that all denizens receive the news that Admiral Hestorb has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Admiral Hestorb was one of the earliest allies of the Realm. Her Navy was frequently made available to our Realm for transportation or military maneuvers. Who could forget the river ride she piloted last summer or the luxurious quarters she provided to all those attending the Royal Adoption?

During a Memorial Service held yesterday, General Boopsie Bear commended the Admiral for her military genious in combatting the Acorn Liberation Front in her own backyard. He noted that the Admiral had an innate genious for land maneuvers as well as oceanic.

Sir Ambassador Scout Ringo reminded the citizens of the Admiral's role in fostering Princess Coco the Adorable's adoption by Princess Treasure. He also spoke admiringly of Hestorb's innate dignity and courtesy in matters of state.

Sir Spitfire reminesced about Hestorb, the bawdy sailor with whom he shared many good naps and nips.

Princess Coco recalled the tutalage provided to her by the Admiral before she assumed her governorship and, later, before her adoption, expressing gratitude for the wisdom passed on to her.

PM Neora Warmlapp offered condolences to the Admiral's able assistant and Mommeh, Carole Catsitter, without whom the Admiral could not have accomplished as much as she had. She also offered insight into the emotional process humans go through when helping a kitty to travel over the rainbow bridge. Audible sobs and sniffs echoed through the realm and all sent purrs or chirps of love to Carole.

Finally, Princess Treasure, visibly moved at the loss of her ally and friend, pronounced Tuesday, eruv Hannukah, to be a day of remembrance for Hestorb; all flags will fly at half-mast and the menorah candles will be dedicated to you.

Admiral will also be named 'a lion of the veldt', the highest award offered by the Sphinx clan to non-Jewish kitties, and her history will be recorded in the History of the Realm.

Continuing Computer Issues

The PM wrote a lovely blog post on Saturday or Sunday, translating Felinese to English 100% correctly. She also had a lovely picture of me from several years ago to include. However, when she went to publish it, something went wrong. Something is wrong with Javascript on her new computer.

What a shame, in addition to the above, she had also announced the date on which the Admiral and Nikita would renew their vows in a gala day.

We are continuing to work on the computer problems; any insight would be appreciated.
