Working Overtime

Dear Mr. Sun,

When we spoke last September, you know I was a bit disappointed in your performance. You had been showing up late to work and cutting out early. As we discussed it was wrecking havoc with my Mom Wake-Up schedule.

You were right too, Diva Lady Moon was also messing up the whole schedule. As you warned me, she was less receptive to my requests. Drama Queen.

Anyway I am writing to you now because I'm going to have to give you a bot of a mixed review again. On the positive side your initiative is really above and beyond. You're getting into the office nice and early and putting in the long hours, and you've impressed me.

I've been enjoying your work on the sun puddle front too. Changing your position during the day so I have new puddles is a master stroke. Kudos.

My only complaint is that perhaps you're working a little too hard when you're in the office. I know it's summer, in the desert, but really 110 degrees in early June? Where do you go from here? I feel like you're trying to hard to impress.

We're impressed. No need to show off. Take some breaks, an extended lunch, maybe take a few personal calls during the day, and hey I can really recommend naps. Take it a bit easier, okay? Consistency is a good thing to strive for.

Sincerely,

Your Fan Finny De Floof

  1. Hmmmm....seems like Mr. Sun has been performing differently for different kitties! He's off baking you like crazy and slacking off at my house. It is light nice and early but he's been hiding out behind clouds.

  2. We have no complaints here in SoCal - yet!

    BTW, I just got your book! I can't wait to read/ review it, and I'll have a cool giveaway in July!

  4. Fin,
    May we sign our names to your letter? We sure like the heat, but Mommy would rather spend money on Cat fudz than 'lectricity!

    We hit 116 in our back yard this afternoon!

  5. Hmmm, so we need to speak to you for the nice weather then... *buttering BOOTIFUL Fin up*

  6. Wow, it's really hot where you are. We have our usual Washington DC humid wall of heat settling in, so we prefer to be in the air conditioning.

  7. Point him to my direction please. He hasn't made an appearance for days, literally.

  8. Let's hope your subtle approach to complaining has the desired effect, Fin. I can see I must not complain about 90 degree weather, though I think it is the humidity that makes it nasty more than the temperature. Anyway, we had a cool fron blow in yesterday and now it is very fresh and breezy.

    Stay cool!

  9. Enjoy the sun, it's lost all its power here. We get the heat from Mr heater.

  10. Excellent letter, Fin. Our human sits besides a surly co-worker; perhaps you could write him something tactful too.

    Here's hoping Mr. Sun gives you a break....Right now, we're happy to have him working so diligently here in southeastern Ontario. :-)

  12. That is a super letter Fin. We need to sign it too. It has been very warm here and we don't need to be spending the green papers on lectricity either. We think the naps sound like a great idea for Mr. Sun.
    Have a hopefully cooler week.

  14. Mr Sun is unreliable in the UK too. :sigh:

  15. Could you ask Mr. Sun if he could spare us a little more of his time? It is raining and cold today and we need sunpuddles.
    Thank you in anticipation.

  16. Mr. Sun has been working well for us here! 110 degrees is madness, though, so we hope he heeds your advice and calms down a bit!

  17. Dear Finny De Floof can you please ask Mr Sun to send some rays to the UK all we get is 2 nice days, a thunderstorm and several days of cloud and rain.

  18. You do such good reviews, Fin. Some praise, some careful criticisms... is good.

  19. You...see the sun? You do? Would you mind having him drop by the Pacific Northwest, like, ever?

  20. 110, yuck! That's no way to get a visit.

  21. Fin we love your letters - you should do a whole book of just those! And we hope Mr. Sun will listen - 110 is way way too hot! And so early - what will happen in July! We hope he listens to you - and that you are able to stay cool!

    We kinda have the same problem here. I overheard that this week it's going to feel like well over 100 in the sun puddles....goodness...we like to bake but we don't want to be fried.

  23. Mr. Sun has been hiding in Chicago, we could use more sun and less humidity and rain.

  24. We hope that you don't melt in a sun puddle Fin! That Mr. Sun has been hiding from us here ... till this last weekend!

  25. We just got out of a hot week and weekend.....now it's chilly and the sun is playing peek-a-boo! Stay cool pretty girl=^Y^=

  26. We feel your pain about 110 in June. We were fussing when it got to 92 here one day. Oy!

    We do hope you get to stay really cool, though. And your naps sound terrific.
