My favourite scents

My mum puts stuff in with the laundry and she says it is to make everything smell nice. Trouble is that I'm not sure it does.

My favourite smell is "Home" = that's part me, part mum and part Josie. When I smell that I feel all warmedly and safe and when the clothes smell of 'White Jasmine' or whatever mum puts in there then they don't smell of home. Of course they can't put Home scent in bottles because all my Catster friends have their own special one that they love.

So I got to thinking. My second favourite smell is fish. I love fishy cat food. But when I have that it goes very quickly where it belongs - in my tummy!! So I can't make the clothes smell like that.

Hmm, Got it! Cat nip!! When mum bundled up the laundry I sneaked in one of our cat nip bananas. Now she would smell delightfully of cat nip and what could be better? She didn't see it and I couldn't wait for the clothes to come out. When they did there was the added bonus of a funky yellow pattern on some of them so they were even catnip banana coloured.

She wasn't as grateful as I thought she would be.

And actually if she did walk about wafting cat nip other cats might start to follow her home. I take a lot of time giving her headrubs precisely so any cats she meets will know that she has a cat and so they shoulnd't try and adopt her.

So I don't think I'll do that again.

Today is a Bank Holiday which means it is a happy day as my mum won't be going to work. Hoorah!!

I love the smell of home too mate. The smell of mum. The smell of my Grandma's cooking which is always good. The smell of the fresh air when I got outside. I know there is one smell I love that mum hates and that the smell of the grass I roll around in it and the come inside and give mum a cuddle.

Mum reckons I smell gross. I also love being at home with all my humans with me like yesterday mum was home sick from work and we all spent the day together. It my idea of the purrfect day.

Toby, I like hoome smell bestest too. And Mom's smell. Sometimes I sleep on her old cloths because they smell so good. Great idea with adding catnip to the laundry. I like the smell of bunnies. I can smell them walking around in my yard. But I don't know how to add that to the laundry.

Congratulations on your DDP. Enjoy your day.

Hi Toby! ConCATulations on being chosen as a DDP today! Your Diary rocks dude! I LOVE the smell of HOME too. The smell of Meowmy and Dad, my two brofurs, and my sisfur Daisy is all that I need to feel all warm and tingly inside. Why do humans wash their clothes? They get their scent on them, they are smelling good like that, and then they wash the scent away! Go figure. I LOVE your idea of adding catnip to the wash...GREAT IDEA! Now your mum will smell even better! I don't know why she wasn't taken with the idea...she should just think of the new yellow print on her clothes as added "ARTWORK." I think I will add some catnip to Meowmy's next wash and see how it turns out. You know what Toby? You may have started a new revolution! Felines efurrywhere may start adding catnip to their human's wash...

Enjoy your day in the spotlight!
