Toby's Diary

Sleeping tidily

Does anyone else's mum tidy them up when they are sleeping? I was on the arm of the sofa when I felt my mum tuck my tail in neatly and then I had one paw dangling down and she stroked that until I tucked it right in. Then I was one neat ball of cat.

I thought this wasn't right but mum pointed out that when she is asleep I have her trained so she will slightly wake up and place her arm in a curve on my command. I like to be on the pillow next to her with arm all around me so if she isn't positioned right I have to wake her up and make her so.

Josie says our mum is so well trained that she did it when Josie mewed at her in the night. Josie tried out the round arm place and quite liked it but reckons under the duvet is still best.

Yesterday I asked my mum why my American friends celebrate in July with fireworks and we celebrate in November. Mum said that in July it is pleasant and warm to be outside watching fireworks so we wait until it is cold and damp and not very nice to be out and do it then. They celebrate their Independence; we celebrate a failed attempt. I asked if we aren't a bit odd and she said probably we are.

I think all us kitties around the world are agreed that fireworks are a bad thing. They should all celebrate by sharing large bowls of fresh fish with their cats and with party streamers. I do like to chase a streamer.

Toby you not the only one who's mum tucks them so their all neat and tidy my mum does the same. My mum likes me to keep my tail tucked in as she worries she might step on it. Got told off this morning for having my tail out. Our mums love us but they can be really strange sometimes.

A failed attempt- and celebrating in nasty weather- that is hilarious. Your mom is funny.
My mom likes it when my legs are all splayed out crazily when I sleep. She can't resist touching them because they are cute. I think maybe your mom thinks your feet are irresistible too.

A large bowl of fresh fish and party streamers. I LIKE that very much, Toby. That's way better than fireworks. Mom doesn't tuck me when I sleep. She knows I would jump up and run away. I like to sleep on her legs at night. If here legs aren't right, I'll stand on them with two paws, pressing down with all my weight, until she shifts them so that they are a comfortable spot for me. By the way, we got our first snow of the year just now, 2:30 in the morning Wednesday. All is white. We didn't get much. Just a dusting.

My meowmy does de same thing Toby! She says that she fusses with me because I am so cute when I am asleep. I will be drifting off to sleep when I hear her voice..."Awwwwwww, aren't you precious? Meowmy loves her little purrincess. Meowmy loves her little baby" she will whisper. Then I will feel her tuck my tail beneath my body, and begin to stroke my fur softly. She will tuck my paws underneath my belly and chin, and stroke my fur some more until I look like a purrfect round ball. I agree with Ka-zar. I think our meowmys ARE strange! How's a girl supposed to get her beauty sleep with all this "tucking" going on?
