Not being scared

On Friday evening, pretty much as soon as it got dark, things started to go bang and flash in the sky. I ran under mum's bed.

I wasn't scared - I just wanted to check that it was safe under there in case mum and Josie were scared and wanted to hide there.

When I had been there long enough to be certain I went out to tell them. I found mum on the sofa and Josie curled up on the arm of the sofa. They looked surprisingly calm but I could see Josie had a paw out touching mum which is what she does when she is nervous.

"I am here now to look after you." I announced. "Budge over!"

And I scrambled up on the arm next to Josie. Mum said that we were in the perfect pose for our card so she ran to get her camera. Timing is everything in these situations and I'm proud to say that I got it just right. I waited until mum had the camera lined up and was just taking it so she has one and a half cats on her picture which won't do.

Later I came back and the three of us were all warmedly together and not scared of all the bangs and whizzes outdoors.

They happened again on Saturday and Sunday nights. I took over Josie's snug as the best place to be if my mum was busy.

Mum says today is November 5th which is what all the bangs have been leading up to so after today things should quieten down. Good!

1 1/2 cats sounds like a great photo to me. I get in cute position and move as soon as mum got the camera out all the time. I must have been sick when mum got all those photos of me that are now on mums facebook page.

It fun to move just when they're ready to take them.

Oh! Guy Fawkes Day! Didn't he blow up Parliament or something?
