Quaker Tom

Hi, effurrrybodies!

On the heels of a very busy Sunday (what happened to 'day of rest,' anyway?) I want to bring up the subject of my religious affiliation. Actually, I have none. I'm a priest and I hang out at a rectory with other like-attired guys, except for the fur, but that's it.

Now, it's been that way for years. However, the housekeeper who moonlights as a graphics nerd has come up with me if I, as a stray, had wound up with a bunch of Quakers at a meetinghouse instead of on her rectory doorstep. (I think the collar is a nice touch, haha!)

Listen guys, I don't want to encourage her should she get it in her head to make me some Buddhist monk or go through all the religions with my face plastered on them. It's taking ecumenical teachings a little too far.

So, please support me in my effort. Laugh all you want, but don't praise. That is, unless you think I would improve the face on Quaker Oats!

Your humble servant,

PS - Thanks to all of you for giving me your nicknames and opinions last week. Yes, Mouse Sniper was a favorite!

Tom, just roll with it, sweetheart!
If it makes a human happy, then it's all good.
We care not of religious affiliations in cat blogger world; cats are cats, and that's all we know.

Maybe the housekeeper needs a gentle nip, Tom!

This is a bad precedent! What's next? A Puritan hunting witches in Salem instead of mice? Buckles on your hat! Keeps it from falling off. Better just stay the way you are. Besides the old guy on the Quaker Oats box can't get a job anywhere else--let him be!
