Toby's Diary

The dignity of the majestic lion or me

Spring is coming. The days are getting more light and warm so I have been busy shedding my warm winter coat. Mum has been helping by brushing me and she was doing that last night.

I rolled on my back so she could brush my tummy. I lay back, eyes closed, purring away, feeling the gentle strokes of the brush on my tummy, dribbling just a little bit, and mum said, "Toby - have you any idea how undignified you look? You are a relation of the majestic lion, the powerful cheetah, the mighty tiger. They would never lie there and let someone tickle their tummies."

I considered this for a moment and then decided they have the short straw. Imagine never getting a tummy rub!

Thinking about my diary yesterday my mum was quite put out at the suggestion that I love her clothes because they smell of her. She thinks she doesn't smell but that's only her puny human nose not getting it. Of course she does. I think mums smell of love and happy and cuddles which is the most beautiful scent in the world.

Toby don't let anyone tell you including your mum that's anything wrong with a tummy rub. They're the best things in the world after food. I thought drooling when you're brushed was furt thing it must be boy thing as I do it too.

Can you please say G'day to your mum and Josie for me.
