Yesterday dawned bright and sunny and mum said that she would paint seal on the window sills to make them waterproof for winter.
This sounded like a job that I could help with but mum told me to stay well away. Unfortunately she forgot to tell Josie. She was painting the ledge by the back door and Josie walked out - right on the wet seal. Mum called out "No!" and Josie thought she meant for Josie not to go outside so she ran in again, over the wet stuff.
So mum had to wash Josie's paws. Now Josie is quite particular about how her paws get washed and she doesn't like water on them and she said she could perfectly well wash the stuff off herself but mum said that she didn't think that wood seal is any good for cats' tummies and wouldn't let her.
Anyway mum got most of it off and Josie is in good health and spirits so we are fine.
And it's good that mum did it yesterday as it is raining today. We wished for it to as mum had planned to go for a walk today but she won't go in the rain so another day of cuddles awaits me!

Too bad Josie doesn't have sticky paws any more. That might be helpful with the people having all the holiday food out.
Tell Josie she's lucky that she didn't get her paws washed with turpentine. When our Mom was a wee little one, she stuck her hand in wet asphalt and her Daddy had to wash her hand with turpentine. That hurt.
