My mum was a bit sad last night. She is sad about Ka-zar and she has other friends who are having a bad time right now so she came home from work and sat on the sofa and sighed.
"What's it all about Toby?" she asked.
She needed help and fast and luckily Josie and I were on hand.
I went in the garden to find her a present - a cute little mouse? a funny hopping frog? a whirring bird to fly about? Hm. Such gifts were hard to find. Then I saw the perfect things fluttering about. I grabbed it and ran back to my door.
When mum came to let me in she saw I had something in my mouth and was already squealing in that excited way of hers as I dropped it.
A crunkly, rustly brown leaf.
"Oh Toby," said my mum, picking it up, "What a relief!" So she was already happier.
Then Josie sat on mum's lap and purred and I sat beside her and she had to be happy that we were there to look after her. (I hope Sandy Claws is reading this and popping a few extra gifts in our stockings!!)

We have our own app!! Mum downloaded a game for cats to play.
Josie saw it first. It's not like mum's games; it's much more elegant and straightforward - like us cats. Mum was showing Josie and Josie was looking at the screen. And looking. And looking.
"Go on," said my mum, "See what score you can get."
And Josie went on looking and looking at the screen - which squeaked every now and then.
Later she showed me. In the screen there is a small mouse that runs around. Occasionally he disappears under the edge and you have to run round really fast so he doesn't escape out of the tablet. It's brilliant.
"Try tapping where you see him," said my mum demonstrating. "You get points".
So I did but I didn't get any points. Mum said I need to tap harder but I prefer my version of the game where I run around the tablet and keep the mouse safely inside. He didn't escape so I think we can safely say I won. Of course!

My mum is getting in the Christmassy Spirit. She was off to the pantomime on Saturday and came back with a cat mask. I like that she wants to look more like us. It can only be an improvement. She had been to see Puss in Boots. I think the best stories are ones where a cat is the hero.
Then on Sunday she produced an Advent Candle.
"Now - you remember the rules about candles?" she asked.
Sweet that she still thinks she gets to set rules. We liked to investigate everything and Josie and I both went over for a sniff.
"I'll light it when you're both asleep," my mum concluded.
I wasn't sure why she had bothered as I remember much leaping up and blowing out the last time - we wake fast! But mum said it was a gift.
Soon it will be time to write our lists for Sandy Claws. Hmmm - what do I want this year?
