There may be an accident

Mum was sitting on the sofa when she asked us a question.

"Cats - do you think my posture is getting better?"

Josie looked at her with clear confusion - how to answer that one nicely? I just said it.

"No."

"I didn't think so either,"said my mum, "but I'm sure I used to just see the edge of the mantlepiece and now I can see the surface. I think it's leaning away from the wall."

"Why would it do that?" I wanted to know.

Mum sighed. "It was put there to carry a couple of ornaments and cards on celebratory occasions. I don't think it's coping with Josie sitting on it so much. Especially when you chase her and she leaps on it. I know from when she leaps on me that's quite an impact."

"What will happen?" I asked.

"If we can't fix it then I think it will fall down one day when Josie jumps on it."

Excellent! I can't wait to see that happen.

Mum went over and had a look but she can't see how it's fixed on although she can see it wobble suggesting it is falling down. She's hoping it will hang on in there until Uncle Bill is next in town as he's good at fixing stuff. He repaired the curtain rail so I could once again climb the curtains

You're a brave cat for saying no. If you mum ever asks you does this make my bum look big always say no. It the safest answer to that question.

OMC a crash would be very scary to me we had a crash one time when somecat went and knocked over the CD case my dad has all his CD's on and we hide for the whole day only Booboo and tiny were brave enough to investigate the scene of the accident.
