Toby's Diary

Being misjudged

By morning time my mum is usually sleeping on her front and Josie likes to snooze on my mum's back at that point. I move her off of course. It's Ok for us kittens but what if Josie squashed my mum? So Josie settles and I join her, a few skillfully administered bats of the paw and my mum is once again safe.

But I was feeling mellow this morning. Lately I've preferred sleeping with my mum instead of in my own bed and I like that. So when Josie came I let her be.

My mum woke up, felt Josie and then waited for me to spring in to action. She knew I was on the bed so it was only a matter of moments. Only I didn't.

This is the sad part. Of all the possibilities that could have sprung to my mum's mind to account for my not moving Josie, 'Toby is a good boy' wasn't one of them. Indeed the only possible explanation my mum could think of was that I somehow physically couldn't - that some terrible event had occurred in the night and I had lost use of my paws. Once the notion had taken her she could not rest until she had checked it. She tried to reach out for me without moving too much and disturbing Josie but she couldn't find me with her hand.

So Josie didn't get the sleep she was hoping for and I was absolutely fine of course.

Toby, you are a very thoughtful cat for moving Josie off your Mum. She probably weights a TON compared to you. You are light as a feather. I like sleeping on my Mom's legs.
