My friend Dee has been to America. She went last year and loved everything there so much she had to go again this year and she loved everything again. And she brought back presents for my mum. Oh yes - praline and fridge magnets and pictures are presents but when I bring her worms and frogs and leaves she isn't nearly so excited.
One picture came from New Orleans and it is a cat playing the clarinet. Mum said at last she knew where my soul lay - she can just see me as a cool jazz playing cat with Josie as the sultry singer.
I was nestled next to her imagining myself in the clubs with my band and my mind happily drfted.
There is a table next to the sofa where mum keeps her cup of tea, TV remote, my brush and other things she might need. I noticed some handcream sort of behind a glass of water and a notepad and as my mind wandered I wondered if I could reach out and touch it without moving my body.
I stretched out my paw and tapped it. I could reach it. Could I pull it towards me? I never did find out - apparently flipping your paw around near a glass of water is "foolish". No sense of adventure, my mum!

Sticking your face in your momma's milk glass isn't approved of around here - people don't know how to have fun!
If you brought those worms and frogs and leaves back from America, your mom would love them.
