Yesterday I was not ready to come indoors when my mum was ready to go to work so I remembered that she cannot see me under the Christmas Tree so I hid there.
She remembered that too and after I heard her calling I saw her lift up one of the big fronds and peer in.
"There you are. Come in now."
I squiggled closer to the trunk of the tree. I did not want to come in. She reached for me but her arm wasn't long enough. I am so sneaky!!
She vanished and came back a moment later. I heard the rustle of a treats bag.
"I have Chicken Dreamies. Mmmm! Would you like one?"
She wafted the open bag in my direction. Tempting, but no. Be firm Toby. I was not going in.
She selected a long piece of grass and wibbled it in my direction. I pounced on the end when it came near me but she has tried that one before. I remembered where that one ends and I let it slide out from under the tree without me following it.
She was starting to sound a bit grumpy and went away again. What would she try next? Who was the sneakiest?
I have to admit she nearly got me with her next attempt - the red dot. It splits into strands over the grass and I just had to chase it. I had even come out from my sanctuary when luckily we heard a load of people making a load of noise and I realised how close I was to being caught and ran back.
She sighed. "OK. I give up. I'm going indoors to read my book. Come on Josie - let's go and eat Dreamies." and off they went.
Victory! I had won. I was in the glorious outdoors and they were indoors. I started wondering what they were doing. Was Josie getting to chase my red dot? Was she eating all the Dreamies? I just had to know. I would run in real fast and check and then run out again.
It didn't quite work out like that. They looked all calm but when I ran my mum was up and sliding that door shut before you could say "Felix Special Mix" and she had grabbed her things and gone to work before I knew what was happening. And I got no Dreamies.
I need to be just a bit more sneaky next time.
That won't be today. I'm staying in this morning. It looks cold out there.

No dreamies? You shoulda gotten some since she tricked you!
I feel your pain mate. Grandpa has a hospital appointment today and mum and Grandma went with him and uncle Grant wasn't up. It was nice sunny morning so I decided to steal some z's in my chair outside for the first time in a long time.
Mum came out as she always does to see what the weather was doing and then asked me to come in. I gave her my cutest do I have to look and she walked inside. Came out a few minutes later and then I went inside mind you I really didn't want to.
Ha! I think your mom has stolen a page from your book!
