I cannot emphasise this enough - excellent health, shiny coats etc. No-one needs to go to the vet. No-one at all.
I mention this because our cat box has appeared suddenly. Mum is a bit sneaky. It appears a few days before vet so we don't know when the fatal moment will come and one of us will be scooped up and thrown in.
Mum says when she went to make the appointment there were two cats, sitting side by side in their carrier, good as gold. She wanted to ask their owners how they did that - she reckons we are like hydra, as soon as she pushes one paw in two more poke out the other side. She doesn't think she could get both of us in one box.
We think Catster is getting betterer as I had a comment on my diary this week which I haven't had in ages. I got all excited and wanted to add something but we couldn't and yesterday we couldn't login at all but I am patient and we'll all be so happy when it's back to the Catster we know and love!
(Mum wants to know exactly how I think I am patient as that isn't a quality she has noticed in me. Not patient with her obviously as she can be so slow but patient everywhere else!)

My mum wants to know which cat attacked her feet while she was asleep last night.
I would never grass up a fellow feline but if you think of a name that rhymes with posy you won't be far off.
Apparently the feet were sticking out of the bottom of the duvet and moving enticingly and when pounced on they pulled back sharply, disappearing under the duvet again, universal language for "Game on!"
Luckily for Josie - I mean the cat who shall remain nameless - it was dark and my mum doesn't see so well in the dark. There was a floundering hand, some muttering, but nothing a lively cat couldn't avoid and I think she's got away with it.
There was the usual "Why oh why do I have cats?" so I went over to give mum some purrs and love so she would remember. She said that was hard to sleep through too but why would anyone want to sleep when they could be snuggling with me?

I don't care what mum says!
Yesterday I came in and Josie was asleep, asleep on my favourite pouffe if you please. So I went over, woke her up and asked her politely to move. She did.
Then I went and curled up on the sofa. I wasn't in a pouffe mood.
The way mum tells it I just walked up, bullied my poor sisfur, not because I wanted to sleep there but because I didn't want to see her happy. That is so unfair.
"I might have wanted to sleep there and Josie didn't know that so she's the mean one to take my place," I pointed out.
"You were out and she has as much right to sleep there as you do," said my mum. Wrongly.
But she did look a bit annoyed with me. Luckily I know how to handle that - big eyes, hesitant purr, paw on the arm, cute set to max.
Mum sighed and stroked me. "I don't know why I put up with you."
Relief. I am in her good books again. There's nothing I can't purr my way out of. And Josie's fine. Actually I'm off out and I'm letting her have the pouffe this morning just to show what a magnanimous cat I am.
