Josie being admired

When mum gets in from work she likes her cup of tea and a quiz show on TV. She is very clever and knows all the answers but unfortunately they don't always ask the right questions. And then maybe she watches Bondi Vet about a vet in Australia and I always think maybe we'll see my mate Ka-zar having his check up but mum reckons he lives too far away to go there.

There are lots of animal noises from that show but mostly we ignore them. The sound we like the least from the TV is babies crying but luckily mum watches more programmes with animals than babies in so we are OK.

Mum says she is tired after work but can usually be persuaded to twiddle a stick or lob balls about for me to chase while she watches. But Josie isn't such a cat for toys mostly and waht she wants is to be admired.

So she sits right in front of the screen and adopts her most beautiful pose and basks in mum's undivided attention. Yesterday I heard mum say, "Josie - I can't see through you" and Josie knew this meant mum was not getting enough Josie to enjoy so she had a re-arrange and made herself even bigger and I heard mum laugh so that must indeed have been what she wanted.

Mate I live no where near Bondi. Bondi is in New South Wales. I live in Victoria. I'm surprised you get Bondi vet in the UK. But it was nice you thought of me. I go for a car ride when I go to the vet to get to Bondi it would be about an 8 hour drive.

I get in front of the TV like Josie does to try and get my humans attention. It never does me much good. I keep getting told to get out of the way.

My sisfur Daisy likes to be adored much like Josie. Our coffee table sits in front of the television. When my pawrents are watching television, Daisy will position herself right in front of them on the coffee table, blocking their view of the TV, so that they can adore her. My pawrents nefur get mad about it, because I guess they rather like gazing at Daisy. They usually tell her how beautiful she looks, but sometimes they say things like "You make a better door than a window Daisy", or "I can't see through you", or "Really? Do you have to sit right there?" When my pawrents are less than appreciative of Daisy's posing fur them, she usually gets down from the coffee table and finds something else to do. Do you efur pose fur your mum Toby?

Actually I think it takes me eight hours in the car to go to the vet. Oh - mum says it is more like eight minutes but it's the way that I grumble that makes it seem like eight hours. He does seem like a very nice vet but he still gives cats shots and things like that so maybe best not to see him!
