Eating Polystyrene

Not me - mum and Josie. Sometimes when mum is watching TV she likes to make a snack. She tips rattly things into a machine and it goes pop pop pop and then things fly out of a hole at the top, mostly into a bowl but a cat needs to keep his wits about him as sometimes they escape.

Then she pours on some melty butter and calls the whole thing popcorn. I tried it once and it's like munching on polystyrene. Most odd.

But Josie likes it and sometimes mum will throw a piece for Josie to chase. But last night Josie couldn't wait and stole a piece from mum's bowl. Which would have been cheeky enough but she wasn't stealthy - she sniffed the whole bowl and selected the one with the most butter on.

Mum is normally quite strict about that kind of thing but I think she was just stunned by the brazen behaviour of the normally well behaved tortie. She is learning a lot from me!

My mum loves to eat popcorn too. She buys in bag that start flat and then grow into a big lump after she put them in microwave. I can't see the fascination in eating either.

I never thought you would lead the beautiful Josie astray I thought you were a good boy all of the time mate.

Polystyrene sounds yucky. Josie seems to have some inner Tortitude which comes out once a year maybe? All Torties have tortitude, sometimes it's just well hidden.
