Not Merci or Cameron

Merci:  Where has this week gone?  It's already Friday and we haven't passed Monday yet, so we must be on the wrong merry-go-round.

Marcus:  So that's why I'm dizzy.  I thought it was because Jan was running around like a crazy person yesterday trying to prepare for a meeting at 11 A.M. that was actually scheduled for 12 noon.

Buddy:  Well, at least when she got home, Jan managed to get her act together to make a poster.  She needed a couple of animal photos in a hurry, so she cleaned up an old photo of Merci and kitten Cameron.

Sam:  Hey, why aren't the rest of us on the poster?  Oh, wait.  we don't want to be adopted.  We already have a home.  I hope no one wants to adopt you or Cameron, Merci.

Merci:  We're not up for adoption, Sam.  We're just shelter pet stand-ins.  And I was adopted from the shelter, so I don't mind helping others to get adopted too.

Sam:  Well, don't you go running off with someone new.  We're all kind of used to having you around.

Merci:  Why, Sam, I do believe that's the nicest thing you've said to me since 2012 when you told me I didn't smell too bad after we walked Jan in the rain.

Rusty:  We cats are a bit disappointed because we don't have a Mousebreath interview this week.

Percy:  Actually, we have one but we were unable to finish preparing it for publication today.

Micah:  Our interview subjects have graciously forgiven us of bailing on them at the last minute.

Cameron: We hated to do it but the information on the adoption day at the shelter didn't come together until yesterday afternoon.  Jan hijacked the computer to finish a poster so the publicity could begin.

Cyndi:  Do you think a cup of catnip tea could help Jan relax and get her act together so we can have more time on the computer?  No?  How about a few gallons?
