Mum had the hoover out again yesterday.
"Watch out for our toys," I reminded her, "Remember what happened last time."
She sighed and went round scooping up all our balls and mice.
"You could tidy up after yourselves you know," she muttered.
I ran to the mirror. Pointy ears? Check. Dainty nose? Check. Elegant tail? Check. Yup - still definitely a cat and cats don't do. Cats are and that's enough. Mum's been watching those dog programmes again where the dogs run round to please their humans every whim. So happy I'm a cat!!
Mum wore her bunny ears to her dance class yesterday. Luckily for her Josie and I are highly intelligent and weren't fooled into thinking she was a rabbit.
But the bunny ears were for Easter and that makes us all happy. Mum is home today so can spend some time running around attending to our every whim.

Every week she takes her freshest, cleanest clothes and she piles them up in a bed for Josie. Not only that but she smooths them all down so they are comfy and gently warms them through.
To be fair to that cat Josie is suitably appreciative and nestles herself down quickly and purrs.
They were doing this last night and my mum said, "Josie! My ironing! Every time!"
And Josie smiled sleepily and snuggled herself a but more snuggily and luckily mum knows the importance of never waking a sleeping cat.
This morning there is nothing sleepy about Josie; she has gone crazy and is playing tag. She hasn't noticed that I'm helping mum with my diary and Josie is looking like a loon running around playing tag all by herself.

I woke up in the night and looked up. Ah! There was my mum, peacefully sleeping in her own bed, where she belongs. I had missed her when she was away and felt all happy to see her. I jumped across and looked down at her and thought how much I love her.
I reached across and gave her a gentle stroke on the cheek like she strokes me. It felt good so I did it again only with a tad of claw action so she would really know I was there.
She did. I got some strokes back. Every now and then she would think I had enough and bury her face in the pillow but I was good for more affection and luckily have paws that wiggle under pillows to find the face I want to touch.
Then I thought I would try what Josie does and perch on my mum while she slept. I can recommend sleeping on people. She's all warm and she breathes very nicely so you get gently rocked to sleep. For once none of us were quite ready when the clock went.
It looks like being another glorious sunny day though so worth waking up for so we can find sunbeams and do more sleepings.
