Toby's Diary

I have been thinking about clocks

It began this morning. I could see mum's clock flashing and I thought she would want to know so I told her. Repeatedly. She muttered about it not being time and then she looked at it and she said "it IS time to get up, thank you Toby." It wasn't making its noise but luckily for her I was being helpful.

But I thought how odd people are. Why does she need a clock to tell her when she's had enough sleep? Josie and I just know like we know when it's time for a snack or a sleep. We don't need no clock to tell us.

The oddest one is when she says it is time for work. Cats work hard. When mum needs a cuddle, I'm there, when a pesky fly needs chasing off, leave it with me, when a paw smells wrong, I'm on to it. But I never think "Hm. I feel like finding some work to do as the clock tells me it's time". I just do what needs doing and leave the rest. But mum trots off every day in pursuit of work to do. It's all very odd.

Another way cats are superior to people - when we wash we use our own perfectly designed tongues and we smell like ourselves when we are done which is a beautiful smell. My mum washes with tangerine smelling stuff and then she puts on her fig and wild grape lotion and then she has to wear perfume so no-one mistakes her for a fruit salad!

They are peculier and just imagine how things would fall apart if they didn't have us cats to look after them. I have to go and chase Josie now - because she's looking bored, not because the clock said!

Toby here's a harsh reality for you. If our humans don't go to work everyday then we don't eat mate. Some of the money my mum earns goes on food to feed me. She even paying for some of vet bill for the visit that coming up. I can do without the vet but I can't do without my tucker.

Our Mom goes to work every day too. I think she goes to a secret hunting place because sometimes she comes back with cans fulls of yummy food for us.

Yeah I don't understand the whole lotion and perfume stuff either. I mean, who wants to smell like tangerines?
