Worrying news

There's been something on my mind all week and in the end I had to ask my mum.

In the news they had said that cats carry a virus thing that can make their humans go mad. I was very worried that mum might not want Josie and me any more.

Mum laughed at me. "I think it's too late for that, don't you?" she said.

Well that was a relief. I don't talk about it much but I have had my suspicions for a while that my mum isn't quite normal in the head department.

When I said that she looked hurt. "I meant I've been hanging around cats so long I've either got it or am immune. I am entirely sane."

It seemed best to pretend to agree with her.

Turns out she read about this virus thing in Scientific American Mind some time ago so was slightly bewildered when the British press found out about it last week.

I did ask about Ricky once we had that out of the way. All the purrs are helping and he is making a good recovery, just taking a while to get used to his cone.

Humans are mad to begin with. I don't think having a cat or two makes any difference. Eight, maybe.

To bad you don't have a doggie roommate...they make Mom's look sane. MOL!

Something tells me all Mom's are a little nuts.

Really, it's a virus that's doing that? I just thought our Mom was a natural Crazy Cat Lady.
