What a relief to be back with my Catster Diary. I was worried that everyone would forget me - and my mum was worried that people would have seen what's been going on in the UK and think she was busy out rioting and she certainly hasn't been!
For us cats events outside haven't meant much. We did see smoke from one of the big fires as it was close by but it does seem to have stopped this morning. My mum's line dance class was cancelled so people wouldn't be travelling about which meant we got an extra evening with her so that was good for us.
For mum she says there is a very strange atmosphere out and about and lots and lots of police but for most people life is just going on. She has been watching the news more and gets very sad so I have been giving her lots of snuggles to cheer her up.
Yesterday for example she was looking online and I walked on the keyboard and managed not only to turn on the webcam so we could see ourselves but to give us a frame of stars. That certainly made her smile as she didn't know how to do that.
I am going out when I can. Mum thinks I could go through the special little door in the kitchen and I can if she holds it open. She says I could push it with my head and come and go just as I please. Well - I don't see her pushing doors with her head so I'm not convinced that's a sensible idea. I have seen Dylan go out that way but that's after stealing our food so doesn't count. I'm sure good cats don't go around headbutting doors.

We've been getting a lot of coverage of the riots in Australia and I couldn't stop thinking of you, Josie and your Mum. I'm glad you're all safe mate. Purring for all concerned that the riots stop soon. Stay safe mate.
So good to hears youse safe an gots exter time wif yer mom.
I'm so glad everyone is back! So sorry to hear about what's going on in London. :( I just don't understand people. Stay safe.
We don't understand how people can misbehave like that. We cats are much more civilized. Sure, we give each other smacky paws sometimes but nofur gets really hurt. Praying for you guys over there that people will come to their senses.
Toby, you just let your Mum open the door for you. That way she'll know if you are in or out.
