Toby's Diary

Black Cats are the Best!!

Mum was reading the paper yesterday when a photo caught my eye - a handsome black cat.

"He's a splendid fellow," I commented. "Why is he in the newspaper? Something very brave and heroic no doubt."

Mum scanned the story. "It's saying that people don't want black cats because they don't photograph so well for web pages."

I was flabbergasted. Josie sniggered and licked one of her ginger patches.

"I think you photograph beautifully," said my mum hastily.

"You KNOW I photograph beautifully," I corrected her. "And, after all, I was pick of the litter for you."

There was an awkward silence.

"Actually you were the last one left," she finally said.

My mum is so silly. I was pick of the litter by Henry of all the kittens that he auditioned to mend mum's broken heart when he went to the Bridge. Of course I was the last one left - I was Reserved for her. And, though I say it myself, I did a pretty good job on the whole heart-mending thing.

But Catster is full of extremely photogenic cats of all colours including black and if people aren't choosing black cats they are missing out.


Josie - getting weirder

Where Josie is happiest sleeping at night is cuddled up with mum, under the duvet; invisible to any dragons that might fly past, soothed by the feeling of mum's breathing; feeling warmedly and loved. That's what she likes best - she wakes my mum to burrow her way in and my mum likes Josie cuddles too so it's all good.

Except at the moment mum doesn't have a duvet. She doesn't even have a sheet to sleep under so what's a cat to do? Well - Josie is a resourceful creature. If she can't bury her way under the duvet she'll bury her way under the pillow instead.

I know this because I saw her - and heard my mum saying "What are you doing, crazy cat?" then "How can I sleep with you pushing my pillow like that?" (but she wasn't sleeping much anyway so I think that one was unfair. Crazy cat was fair of course.)

Turns out under the pillow isn't a great place to sleep so Josie took one pillow for her bed and swished her tail in disapproval. Mum threatened to attach a fan to Josie's tail so at least the swishing could be usefully cooling mum down.

I am glad I have my own chair for night time sleeping and am well out of it.


Crunchy what?

One of the loveliest things is when your mum has your bowl in one hand, a box in the other and she says "I have a special treat for you."

That's what happened to me and Josie last night. I couldn't wait but it seemed to take forever for our bowls to be placed before our hungry mouths.

But what was this? I looked at Josie. She was looking at me with the same bewilderment I was feeling. I looked up at mum.

"Excuse me - there's stuff on our supper," I said.

"That's right. It's Crunchy Crumble topping especially made to delight you."

"Really?" I took another sniff. "I suppose I could work round it."

So I had to sort of eat sideways so as not to eat the little worm things. I ate a couple accidentally and they tasted Ok but why would any cat want their kitty food sprinkled with worms?

Mum should stick with what she knows we like but I think the kitty food manufacturers see her coming and say something is all new and delicious and bless her she buys it for us.
