Normally my mum is almost as bouncy and healthy as me but yesterday she had a bad head. A really bad head. She said there was nothing for it but to take some tablets and lie down a while.
This is so unusual I worried. What if she stayed lying down? Who would feed us? I knew the time had come to step up and show what I am really made of.
I went outside and caught a mouse. Yey! It would all be fine. I could provide for all of us. I hurried back, eager to show my mum.
She wasn't as grateful as I had expected. It was dead and ready for snacking on but she wouldn't let me bring it indoors.
"Just try a nibble," I suggested. "It might help your headache" but she held firm on insisting I leave it outdoors.
Her head did get better and she is back up and running but at least she knows if she ever needs me to I can catch our daily food.
Now she is better she reckons she has an idea for our Christmas card and just needs a photo of Josie and me together. This should be fun!

You're a good provider!
Humans are always getting headaches the best thing we can do is sit on their laps and let them pat us as it meant to reduce their stress levels and blood pressure and make them feel better. I don't know if this has ever worked for my mum but I do it anyway just to let her know that I care.
It's too bad that your Mom didn't try the mouse. Mousies are good against headaches. I caught a few years back, but Mom took each one away from me. I think the must have needed them against her headache. Good hunting luck to you, young one.
I never caught a mousie but I have caught a birdie, do you think that will help with headache...
I have to settle for bringing Mom toy mousies as I'm an indoor cat. I think those help headaches too, and don't gross Mom out.
