I’ve often wondered about Jelly Bean’s mellow personality and sleepy expressions. Now I know.
As a responsible cat parent, I should have been more aware…
. . . . . . . .
“Come on,” said his brother, “It’s really cool! She opens the stuff when she puts the wood things together. You go and smell that stuff in the bottle, then come over here and sit inside the wood thing.”
“It’s way far out!!”
Bean always listens to his brothers. So he sniffed the glue and went to sit in the frame.
“So when does it happ—”
I didn’t have the heart to tell them it wasn’t that kind of glue.
They were having such a good time being bad boys.

Innocence Regained, and Avenged
“That’s what you get for getting me in trouble.”
“What trouble? You get yourself in enough trouble! What did I do?”
“You had me sniff that glue stuff the other day, now it’s all over the internets that Jelly Bean sniffs glue.”
“Well you did sniff glue! What’s the problem with that?”
“I wouldn’t have done it if you hadn’t led me astray!”
“Astray?! A-stray?! I led you a-stray? Where did you learn that big word? Do you even know what it means?”
“It means you made me do a bad thing I wouldn’t normally do!”
“I hardly had to pull your tail to get you to do it.”
“You know I trust you! You’re my brother!”
“Look, little brother—”
“Don’t you ‘little brother’ me!”
“You’re acting like one, like a real little brother. Real little. Anyway, it wasn’t a bad thing to do.”
“I heard sniffing glue was bad!”
“It wasn’t that kind of glue.”
“What kind of glue is that?”
“The kind that makes the room look like a psychedelic painting.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean it was all in your head.”
“In my head? But the room was all different! And I felt different.”
“You’re making fun of me aren’t you?”
“You set me up to look like a fool, didn’t you?”
“Some brother you are!”
“Go ahead, hit me now, you fall for it every time, it’s almost no fun.”
