Bouncy legs

Last night Josie and I both had very bouncy legs and we had a brilliant time chasing each other all around the flat. Sometimes our flat is too small for our bouncy legs and there will be a crashing noise and mum will come from wherever she is and ask what it is that we have knocked over. Obviously the key then is to get as far away from the crashed thing as possible and hope that the other cat looks more guilty than you do.

Last night mum couldn't see what we had knocked over although she looked all round.

She found out later of course - when she got wet feet in the bathroom. Next to her loo she keeps a special brush in a special pot and it only gets used to swish the loo and nothing else and it lives in special water. Or at least that's how it used to work. It got in the way and all its special water was all over the bathroom floor.

Best of all we didn't get told off as some very wise cat told her that you have to tell cats off at the time or they forget what they have done. So when we heard her exclaim with yuk we put on faces like cats who had been discussing the Eurozone crisis and never leapt around on bouncy legs sending things flying!

It is definitely getting colder here at night so last night Josie slept on mum's back and I slept curled up against mum's knees. Mum likes to sleep on her side but Josie has got the gentkle nudging down to a fine art so mum wakes up on her front, leaving her back a comfy mattress for a young cat.

Don't forget to look completely innocent too. If you look guilty even when your mum has found the thing you knocked over it can still mean trouble mate. Bouncy legs must have been going around I had them today for some reason.

Bouncy legs are going around. My sibs and I have had bouncy legs this week too. Meowmy thinks it is the change in weather. She thinks that a cat has to run around more in the Fall and Winter just to keep warm. She might be on to something! You are smart to get away from the fallen object as fast as you can, and look as innocent as pawsible. That's what we do too. We try to make Meowmy think she is imagining things when she hears something crash. Smart kitties, right?
