"I'll Be Your Friend"

You know that kid in school who would always go up to the new kid (or the bullied kid or the unpopular kid or the shy kid) and extend an offer of friendship?

That's Bailey.

Viola is NOT happy to be back here and Boo has not been helping one bit. Boo has been tormenting poor Viola since the instant she came back yesterday -- cornering Viola or taunting her and just being a general pain in the butt. I swear, if a cat could chuckle and snicker, that's what he'd be doing. He's the playground bully, the important and brutish stud on campus. And he is NOT playing nice.

(Yes, sweet, lovable Boo. He has another side to him...)

But while Boo was outside, Bailey (who adores Boo so waited until he left) slowly and sweetly approached Viola, who has taken refuge in the guest bedroom. As if to say I know he's a butt sometimes, but I'm not... you might really like me if you give me a chance, Bailey quietly posted herself at the other end of the bed from Viola. She even turned away from Viola at one point, seemingly showing her vulnerability (notice the ears) and trying to convince Viola that she could be trusted.

Bailey just wants to be loved. She just wants to be friends. She just wants everyone to get along!

Man, I could devise an entire sociology course just using cats as players...

Cats...they're just like kids. Or maybe it's the other way around?

Did you happen to see "Menopause, The Musical" when it was in town? I've never laughed so hard in my life!

That's such a sweet story. It was interesting pointing out about the ears, too.
