Yesterday my mum was out all day and she came home with my friend Dee. They had been shopping and coming home mum had suggested Dee come and say hello to us.
"You won't see Josie," she explained, "but Toby will be more sociable."
Sociable my paw! I had been stuck in all day. I wanted out and out I went. Josie says she heard mum apologise for that and decided to go and take a look. So my mum had now said two untrue things.
"This is her snug" said mum showing Dee where Josie has been snoozing. "I expect she'll go in it" but Josie was more interested in sniffing Dee's feet. So mum was wrong again.
She went to sort out some drinks for them both but gave Dee some treats to give Josie. "She loves these," said mum. Josie was quite getting in the spirit now of doing the opposite of what mum said so sniffed Dee's fingers politely and reluctantly crunched half the treat.
When I came in Josie whispered to me what she was doing and it was funny.
"Here's my boy" said mum. "He'll like a treat." I held off a bit but couldn't resist but did resist playing with my laser pointer even as mum was saying, "That's his favourite toy" and basically everything mum said about us we did the opposite.
"Have you just been telling me lies about your cats?" asked Dee. "No," said mum. "It's all true. Honest!" and I looked up at them both with my biggest most innocentist eyes.
Hah! That will teach my mum to go shopping all day instead of being with us!
Of course as soon as Dee had left we were munching up the treats, Josie was in her snug and we did all the things we normally do. I love being a cat!
Today is Halloween which is a special celebration of us black cats so I'm pretty excited about that.

Us cats always make liars out of our parents!
Oh, my Mom knows *never* to say we always do one thing, 'cause we'll always do the opposite just to make sure our independence is intact. No performing on cue for us! If she tries to video us doing something we immediately stop, so she knows that getting the camera is the one sure-fire way to kill us doing anything cute.
