Help! I Haven’t Been Able to Post Because Mom Was Doing “Taxes”

Hi cats.  I’m sorry that I haven’t posted for so long. I haven’t been able to because you-know-who has been hogging the computer doing something called, “Taxes”.

Now, I’m not sure what “Taxes” are.  However, after watching Mom for the last few days, I know that they involve filling out tons of forms, require knowledge of “tax laws” that change every year, and are very scary because if your human/s make even one mistake on them, they could get in trouble or even go to jail.  Now, just in case there are any kittens reading this, “jail” is a place that humans go when they’ve been bad.

In jail, humans are caged just like I was when I was at the animal shelter.  However, no one wants to adopt the humans who are in jail.  Instead, they want to keep them there so they won’t do any more bad things.  Now, I don’t understand how putting a human in a cage for years prevents them from doing bad things.  In fact, I think that they’re so mad about being locked up that they want to do more bad things.  I have given up trying to figure stuff like this out, though. It’s just another thing about humans that I don’t understand!

Anyway, back to “Taxes”.  When Mom was doing them, her hair stood on end.  And, she paced around the apartment while mumbling things such as, “Who created this crazy system?” and, “I don’t care if I’m getting a refund.  This is too much work!”  I really was worried about her sanity.  However, after much prayer and drama, she is finally finished with them.  I’m glad because now I can type to everyone again!

In my next post, I am going to update you on what’s been going on with my friends in the neighborhood.  Right now, though, I’m going to lie down.  All of this “Taxes” drama has exhausted me!
