Mum bought us a new catnip toy. That is - it says catnip on the label but Josie and I can't smell any so the toy is not a success. However on the back of the package it says something very wise. It says "The best gift you can give your cat is your time."
This is so very true. Mum does the best chase games and when I am sleepy I like best of all to be close to my mum and have her give me strokes and scratches and Josie says the same.
Yesterday I had an other go at chasing birds but they still fly so I came indoors and chased Josie instead which is a lot easier on account of her not being able to fly. After we had a good runaround we found mum was lying on the sofa with a book so I settled in my place on the arm of the sofa and Josie curled up on mum's legs and we all fell asleep. It was so peaceful all being together like that.
Then I woke up and realised mum's toes were right by me. I just couldn't resist a quick grab with the claw and a bite. Then we were all wide awake!! Mum said that is not a nice way to wake up but I thought it was funny!

Being with my mum is the best. We make time to snuggle every night before we go to sleep and I also sleep with her now the possum and rat have vacated the roof. I agree with the toys your mum gave you a person time is the best thing you can give a cat and food isn't too bad either.
What wise words, we cats need more loving and attention.
