Disappearing Josie

I was mootling about in the sitting room and I could hear mum talking to Josie in the kitchen.

Mum was laughing at Josie. "You won't fit."

Then a pause.

"You do fit. Josie?"

Then silence. After a while mum came in with her cup of tea and said that Josie had gone down the side of the fridge and behind the kitchen cupboards. She remembered Henry did that as a kitten and was bewildered when he got big and couldn't fit any more. She didn't think Josie would fit and was rather worried that Josie wouldn't be able to squeeze her way out again.

"Oh well, " I said cheeringly. "You'll still have me" but apparently mum was more thinking of disamntling all the kitchen cupboards than leaving Josie there.

Josie was gone about twenty minutes in which time I enjoyed pretending to be an only cat. When she came back she said it was very disappointing. She was expecting mice and beetles but there was nothing there and the dust made her sneeze. So I'll not bother.

It's sunny this morning but I got one paw out of the door when I heard two cats having the mother of all arguments. Mum says sometimes discretion is the greater part of valour. I have no idea what that means but it did seem to imply that sometimes it is better to stay indoors than get dragged into another cats' argument so I did!

Trust me mate being an only cat is not all it's cracked up to be. Sure I get mum all myself and unlimited cuddles and all the food but it can get really lonely when I'm home along for extended periods of time. There are time I wish I wasn't an only cat.

You and Josie should be grateful to have each other.

I like to pretend I'm an only cat too. And remember the time before all these silly boys invaded my home!

I like to go behind our washing machine and the dryer. Silly Mom thought I wouldn't fit when I first moved in. Timo barely fits. I think he went behind it once and said: ha, there's nothing here!
