Toby's Diary

An unfortunate combination of circumstances

Yesterday my mum was really late home from work. Supper time came and went with no key in the door and I decided that she must have gone away again or something dreadful must have happened.

It was the better part of two hours late before I saw her walk up the path. She said there had been a really nasty accident on the motorway so everything was all jammed up.

I was so happy to see her. You know what it's like. Once I had my supper I just had to run around a lot and be all excitable.

Mum said that I had better run in the garden as I had so much energy and that was a good idea, only it was raining and I don't like that so I stayed in and ran around the flat. Mum played with me a bit but she was tired, something about Josie and me having kept her up a lot of last night which I'm sure we didn't do, and Josie played with me a bit but I soon wore that cross patch out and she didn't want to play any more.

Mostly our flat feels quite large enough for the three of us but last night it felt very terribly small as I bounded around. I was bounding from just after I got fed to when mum went to bed and on and on. It was unfortunate, mum said, that I had such bouncy legs on a rainy evening when she really wanted an early night.

I think that I am more back to normal today. I asked mum to promise never to be late again but she said she can't do that. But she promised to always drive carefully and get to us as soon as she can and I had to be happy with that.

oh my it is so tough when we have lots of energy and our moms want us to just you know sleep or something.
I know what it is like to wonder if mom is coming home or not, mom often gets home late too.
Glad your mom was tolerate.

Why do moms never want to play when we do? I try to get my mom up early in the morning to play and she always grumbles about it.

Would it be great if our mums could work but not have to go anywhere to do it and we could help them work. In my mum's case that would be impossible but a cat can dream can't they. I miss my mum when she goes to work.

When my mom gets home late I am all amped up too when she gets home. Sometimes she does her own work at home, and I do my best to help her. For some reason she doesn't think I am much help.

Mom and Dad never won't to play when I do. Of course, they are usually trying to go to sleep then.
