WHO'S DA BOSS ???

When our sons left home many years ago now, we turned one of their bedrooms into an office for Barry to work in away from the bustle of downstairs.  He has used this office for many years to prepare his sermons.  However since his retirement and since he has been traveling to various mission fields he has not used his office nearly as much.



Meanwhile, Scruffy,  the new addition to our home, recently found that Barry's comfy office chair is great for  for his afternoon nap.

Two weeks ago Barry was asked to be a guest preacher at the church, so he hived off into his office to get on with his preparation.  Half way through the afternoon he had a visitor.  Scruffy came looking for his usual spot for his afternoon nap.  He was not pleased.  He meowed a few times and looked expectantly at Barry.  He got a couple of scratches on his ears and that was that. So then he jumped up on the desk and started 'sorting' through all the papers and books there.  Barry kept working away.  


So then Scruffy jumped across to the bookcase and knocked down a few papers.  Barry got up and put him down on the floor then returned to his books.  Scruffy responded by jumping up on the other bookcase.  Barry ignored him.  So he jumped down and sat by Barry's chair and started pawing at him and making more complaints.

Barry gave up.  He moved his large, comfy office chair to the other side of the desk and got himself a folding chair.



Guess what happened next!



SO WHO'S DA BOSS ??

Who do Boss is right!!
Your Hubby made the ultimate sacrifice....
I'm sure his sermon will be an encouragement to all who hear it. I wonder if Scruffy will have a part in it?

The really funny thing is there are those of us who not only 'allow' our cats to do this--we assist them as they appropriate our chair. I dare not refer to any chair in the house as 'mine.'

Definitely a ja ja ja post Chris. I can see el gatito snap it's little paws just to let you guys know that he is the boss of the both of you. :-)

How sweet Barry is. Our cat waits until I get up and then within just a quick few seconds, she is happily asleep in my chair!
