A few decades ago we celebrated Secretary's Week and rewarded the girl at the front desk with some lunch, flowers or maybe a nice pat on the butt accompanied by some sort of sexist comment about her looks. These days, it's Administrative Professionals Day and thankfully, we've moved past the degrading stuff while still acknowledging the person who is often the glue that binds the business together.

Here at Cat Country, our director of first impressions is Mackenzie. Mackenzie isn't pictured in the photo because she's enjoying the gift of time off. In her place, a bell that annoys our business manager. If you come see us between now and Friday, ring the bell hard and repeatedly and watch Heather fake a smile as she emerges from her office. We'll miss her while she's gone, but I'm glad Mackenzie is getting some family time...and of course, time away from us.
