Yesterday my mum announced she was going to clear out The Cupboard.
I was worried - "Is this wise?"
The Cupboard is just outside our front door and for over ten years mum has put things in but nothing has ever come out. What would she find? I was worried there might be another cat in there but mum was pretty sure she wouldn't have done that.
One by one the contents appeared in our hall. No cats but mostly kitchen appliances. "Why did I buy a smoothie maker? I never make smoothies?" And not one, not two, not three but four picnic sets. My mum used to live in a flat with no garden but close to a lovely park but even then she doesn't think she used four! Josie kept going to the back of the cupboard to explore which I thought reckless and mum did check each time she was out before shutting it again. I wouldn't go anywhere near it.
So we have an interesting hall at the moment with piles for the charity shop and piles for the dump and piles that my mum just can't make her mind up about. "What if I do want to make smoothies ever? Or have a fondue? Or a very large picnic?"
It rained yesterday so the garden is wet - prime frog hunting conditions so I'm going to leave mum and Josie to sort out the stuff and get going.

MOL! At least there wasn't another cat in there!
Wow, 10 years. Something could have grown in there in 10 years. You were very wise, Toby, not to go near the cupboard. I think your Mum should have a picnic with you two and invite one guest cat. Then she can use all four picnic sets.
You were wise to stay away from the cupboard mate. The last time I went exploring in a cupboard I got accidently locked in there for 4 hours. Mum went out and only realised I was there when I screamed at the top of lungs to get let out. When I was kitten I could be really loud when I wanted to be.
I got shut in the refrigerator when I was a kitten.
You're probably wise to stay away, but me and my sisfur Minnie just love closets! We love exploring them--every shelf--so Mom makes very sure she has seen both of us outside of the closet before she shuts the door. There have been some close calls, but neither of us has gotten stuck in one yet, thanks to Mom's precautions.
