I loved being Diary of the Day Cat and found the whole thing very exciting. It does take it out of you though.
Mum came home and said happily that we had the whole evening to play but actually I was quite happy to play a while and then snuggle for some sleep. Snuggles are good too. I also did some playing with Josie - she can run fast and we had fun.
Then it was sleepy time. I woke up about three in the morning to a strange sound. Everyone else was asleep but I thought they should know. I sleep on my pillow and Josie sleeps in a special pink bed under mum's bed and I went to wake her up.
I told her I could hear a strange noise but she just growled at me to leave her be. My mum called me and told me to let sleeping cats lie so I went to tell her about the noise. She told me it wasn't play time at all but that wasn't what I was trying to tell her.
In the end I gave up and we settled back down and then my mum asked, "What's that?"
Drip. Drip. Drippety drip. Drip.
She went in the kitchen and said, "Oh no! Not again!" I have never seen this before but there was water dripping through the ceiling, slowly turning my leftover supper in to a bowl of soup.
She went outside and I hear her go bang, bang, bang on the door for upstairs and she shouted to them to sort the water out. She didn't sound very happy but we heard them move about so hopefully they fixed it. She told me last time it was ice melting from their freezer and she'll be really cross if they have let that happen again. In the past the water has made all the electric stop and that makes her grumpy.
This morning the drip had stopped and all there was to show for my adventure was a pile of soggy newspaper that my mum had put down.

Wow. That was scary.
You are a good watch-cat, Toby.
Tell you what, next time you want to wake your mommy up try licking the inside of her elbow. Works for me!
Usually we work in tandem, Mumtatz and I. I snuggle and tickle and lick and purr while Mumtatz finds herself a piece of paper to do the wake-up dance on. :-)
It's tuff bein a kitten-NOBODY LISTEN TO YOU! Youse tellen 'em an tellen 'em but dey's not listenin. Oh well, yer mama fin'ly heared da noise.
