Saturday morning dawned bright and sunny and my mum said she would do some gardening. Gardening turns out to be tremendous fun - all the doors and windows were open and mum was in and out and I can't remember when I last had such a good time. Josie was enjoying it too. (She did just have a full tummy on Friday morning and is right as rain now.)
Then we were all tired so we all falled asleep on the sofa but then mum suddenly leapt up, ran out and reappeared with my box. I was in it before I had properly woken up and off we went to the vets. Time for my annual shots and check-up. I did not like that one little bit. At one point the vet left us and mum gave me a cuddle and I purred a bit to calm us both down.
Anyway he is happy that I am fit and healthy - "Great" was the word he used. Hm. Toby the Great - I like that and hopefully that's the last time I'll see the vets for another year.
Then my mum went to help Paul next door. The mother cat was unwell but he couldn't give her worm treatment whilst she was feeding the kittens so he wanted my mum to help round them all up.
These kittens may be small but they are completely unused to people and they were very scared and my mum has the bites and scratches to prove it. Unfortunately the scheme wasn't a complete success and when mum left two of the kittens had been caught but one kitten and the mother were still at large and the fea is that she'll take that kitten and move on now she is scared.
The two that were caught were put in a kitten pen and were eating so must have felt a bit alright. Mum did go round yesterday to see if the missing two had turned up but Paul was out so we don't know. Mum felt bad as she couldn't get the cat box open fast enough at one crucial moment and the mother cat got away. I gave her lots of extra lovings as I know she meant well.

Toby the Great! I like it! It fits you very well!
Your mom is so wonderful to be helping with the mama kitty and those kittens. I hope everything works out!
Doing a happy dance that your vet visit went well and that Josie is feeling better. Hoping you catch the mum cat and kitten soon and they all find furever homes.
