Toby's Diary

Good manners

Mum went out yesterday evening to see my friend Alison. The set up there is very similar to ours - handsome younger boy cat and beautiful older tortie cat.

Mum came back full of praise for Sandy which is the younger cat. She reckons I should go and stay with them and have Sandy teach me some manners.

"What do you mean?"

"I was telling them how you always take Josie's food and they told me that at mealtimes Sandy waits until Minnie has had enough to eat before he starts."

"Why would he do that?"

"He is a gentleman cat."

I pondered this but have decided not to be a gentleman cat after all. He does run the terrible risk of missing out on something in the other bowl after all.

Mum said on reflection it might be more that Minnie taught Sandy to do that when he arrived as a kitten and maybe Josie needs to go on Assertiveness Training and get in touch with her Inner Tiger.

I do not wish this to happen. I am very content with things just the way that they are!

Josie needs to get in contact with her inner wacky paw to keep you in line. That's rude to take food from other cats bowls. I hope you ask her first?

Oh the inner Tiger. Yes, we all have one. I'm very much in touch with mine. It shows through on my fur. I have stripes, MOL. Brothers need the smackey paw once in a while.
