Master of Disguise

In a world filled with adoration of my humble self, I often need to find a quiet space in which to have a nap or organize my profound thoughts. Obvious hiding places are easily found out by the humans, so I have had to become quite creative. Even to the point of disguising myself among ordinary objects.

Take, for instance, my attempt to blend as a roll of paper towel in an empty bag labeled thus. This one withstood for fully five minutes.

Unfortunately, even with my supreme powers of the brain, the humans are often able to seek me out. While I naturally appreciate this concern for my well being, it can be quite frustrating.

They have found me hiding in a box under the guise of an apple.

They somehow discovered that Stetta and I were having a nap cleverly disguised as balls of yarn inside a couch drawer ostensibly placed there for that purpose.

They caught me one day sneaking into the dishwasher, though I clearly looked like just another clean plate.

And they found me asleep in a drawer in the bathroom, somehow picking me out from among the other hairbrushes....

But there is one trick, one hiding place, one disguise that the humans have yet to decode. The highly complicated and incredibly rare art of "If I can't see you, you can't see me." Something to do with increased invisibility. I won't bore you with the details. You wouldn't understand.
