Cynthia finds Marcy completely absorbed on the computer.
Cynthia: Watcha doing Marcy cat cat cat?
Marcy: Curating my art collection.
Cynthia leans over to see that Marcy is on her Pinterest page and is deleting every pin.
Cynthia: Aaaaaack! That’s MY art collection. Why are you deleting my pins?
Marcy: Too many cats.
Cynthia: But the whole point of a Pinterest page is to accumulate super nifty pics of a subject you love. And mine is cats featured in fascinating art, cool photography, and fun fashion.
Cynthia: I’ve got pics of you on Instagram!Marcy: You only need pics of me.
Marcy: I saw that. You also have pics of Penelope Kitten and random street cat art. I deleted those too.
Marcy: I don’t like your use of filters.
Cynthia: That’s the whole point of Instagram! Creating cool photos with filters!
Marcy: You’re not very good at it.
Cynthia: I just started it!
Marcy flips over to her Instagram account.
Marcy: Oh. darn. They didn’t delete.
Marcy: You can change your passwords but you can’t change your pants.
Cynthia gives Marcy a funny look.
Marcy: You know what I mean.
Cynthia: This time I actually don’t.
That is, if Marcy doesn’t play art curator again. That’s MY job.
Cynthia: Marcy! Marcy! Marcy!
Marcy: What? Buzz Off, Cindy. I’m sleeping!
Cynthia: Marcy. Wake up! C’mon. Look! It’s a picture of you.
Marcy: I hate pictures of me. They never capture the real me. And I always look ugly.
Cynthia shoves the picture in front of Marcy’s face.
|Logo by Joanna Cheung of Rainbow of Crazy|
Marcy: Gasp! Is that what I think it is?
Cynthia (excitedly): Yes it is.
Marcy (super excitedly): A logo just for us? Gasp! I look so cute. I love it!
Cynthia (super duper excitedly): I love it too!
Marcy (exclaiming): Joanna Cheung of Rainbow of Crazy is an artistic wonder! She created a logo that is perfectly me! I am going to give her a big slurpy kitty kiss!
Cynthia: Joanna is so talented. I love her artwork and cat pendants and was so excited she agreed to create a logo for us. She was a joy to work with.
Marcy stares happily at the logo while swishing her tail back and forth.
Five hours later. Cynthia pops the top of a Friskies can.
Cynthia: Marcy! It’s Friskies time.
Cynthia walks into the office to see Marcy still happily staring at the logo and swishing her tail back and forth.
Cynthia: Oh, Marcy, Freddy sent me this illustration by Gemma Correll and said it was a picture of me. Ponytail, spectacles, and perpetual glass of wine included.

Cynthia: He may be right, too. I think I just did this at a 4th of July BBQ.
Marcy: You talk to other cats at parties?
Cynthia (embarrassed): Maybe.
Marcy: That’s really pathetic, Cindy.
Cynthia: But sometimes I don’t WANT to talk about politics, Kim Kardashian, movie stars, or the weather.
Marcy: That’s what humans talk about at parties?
Cynthia: All the time, Marcy, all the time.
