Toby's Diary

Mum abandoned us

Mum went away on Christmas Day and came back yesterday evening. She said she went to her sister's and we weren't invited. (This is due to the Henry/chimney episode; some years ago but never forgotten. When he visited he went up the chimney to see if he could find Sandy Claws. He didn't but he worried my mum enough to be talking about getting the chimney demolished and when he did come back down he brought large quantities of soot with him and on him. So us cats are no longer welcome in case we do the same!)

Luckily we had plenty of toys to be going on with - mostly tree ornaments if I'm honest. I still don't get the track thing with the ball in. Mum changed it round to be a loop and has been pinging the ball round and I watch nicely but I'm not sure what she expects me to do.

Despite next door people popping in to feed us we were still happy to see our mum home. Josie spent all night perched on her purring - not cool, Josie, not cool.

Today mum is not going to work so maybe we'll have another go at understanding the ball in track thing!

One thing cats are very good at doing is make good use of our toys I am sure you'll find a use for that loop thingy eventually it may just take some time. Just use your imagination and I'm sure something will come to you.

That track thing was part of mom's toy-testing article. I wasn't interested in it either.

Our humans are here to entertain us. You just keep on watching your Mum play with the track thing.
Not nice for the other people not to invite you. Why, sooth doesn't even show up on your black fur.

It's called soot, Mietzi. Not sooth. Tree ornaments are great to play with, Toby. Our Mom hung the two ornaments back up on the tree that I spent so much time knocking off.

My Nana abandoned us Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and most of Boxing Day, as her granddaughter was having seizures. I know she was needed, but I didn't get my usual bedtime snuggling, and that's very important this time of year.
She's back tonight, though, so I'm a much happier kitty. Mom went and spent some time on Nana's bed with me each night while Nana was gone, but it wasn't the same.
