All in a Day’s Work

As you can see, Rufus is very tired. What you may not know, and certainly can’t really tell from this very badly taken photo, is that he’s exhausted from a long day of protecting hearth and home from … mail. Yes. Villainous mail. While I was out and about doing human things, Rufus was at home tearing up every bit of mail his snaggly little teeth could reach. You can see some of his work on the floor by his bed … the rest is under his blanket, which is why his blanket is so puffed up. It’s not that the blanket is resplendent in and of itself — it’s the shredded stash of destroyed bills, correspondence, and sales papers under the blanket that make it so poofy.

So, here’s to Rufus the Invincible, my knight in shining armor. Saving me, once again, from the evils of capitalism.

  1. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it! Thank god we can all sleep better at night knowing that Rufus is on patrol!

  2. He is badly needed on the floor of my car behind the driver sest, where i throw all the junk mail until i make time to trash it in a bin. The chickens would love the shredded stuff for nesting and deposit of eggs
