Yesterday mum was late leaving home and she told me she was off on a training day about Leaders.
"What are they then?"
"They are the ones that have a vision and inspire everyone to work together to acheive it."
I considered this. "So I'm the Leader of this flat."
"How do you work that out?"
"Remember when I learnt about Strategy and I had a five year vision of sitting on the sofa chatting and I have inspired you to go to work every day to pay the bills and make it so we are indeed here in five years."
If I could work the video on mum's camera I would have filmed her face as she worked out that I am right but she wouldn't admit it, just kept putting things in her bag and off she went.
When she came back I asked how it had gone. Had she learnt about the important role cats have to play in Leadership?
She said they were talking about great leaders of the past, specifically Sir winston Churchill.
"And what did Sir Winston Churchill think to cats?"
She said some things about inspirational speeches and hard work but was forced to admit that this great leader of history loved cats and at his peak had a cat called Smokey asleep on his bed most nights.
My point was made.
And I have some news on tabby cats. I hadn't seen my tabby mate in a while. I don't think he cares much for rain but he was here this morning so he is fine. And the other exciting news is that next door went to the Animal Shelter yesterday and met a tabby kitten they are very taken with. He is reserved for them and they go back today and if they still like him and he likes them he's coming home with them. They have had a sad year with cats so we are purring for it all to work out as he will get a very happy home.

Us cats are the real leaders of the world!
Glad to hear your Tabby mate is ok. Purring that everything works out of that kitten and your next door neighbours adopt him every cat deserves a furever home.
Remember mate your man of the house and the man of the house is meant to lead.
You are certainly a challenging kitty, Toby.
