Strange mouse

A very peculier mouse-like creature turned up in our home yesterday.

I was having one of those especially wonderful sleeps, nestled close to mum where I could reach out and touch her every now and then and get a little head rub back and feel all loved. Blissikins!

Then I woke up and saw it on the sofa. I was quick to act, I walked over and batted it with my paw, and again.

Then mum grabbed it.

"Don't you know what that is?"

I looked at her blankly.

"What was happening before you fell asleep?"

I thought about that one. Oh yes, part of the whole happy experience.

"You were brushing me."

And then I realised. Mum takes the fur out of my brush as she goes and I must have moulted a whole handful, a mouse-full you could even say so, there it was all furry and sitting there. How embarrassing not to recognise your own fur!

It's gone for compost now so I can never make that foolish mistake again.

Mum had a good day at the Trade Show and brought back all her goodies in a big bag which is now my big bag. I like climbing in and having mum poke the outside and I attack where I hear the scratchy noise. They gave her lots of books and my mum loves books. One is called, "Go mad!" I think they are too late.

I wasn't sure if she wanted waking at 6 this morning so thought it best to trot along a bit before and ask. She rolled over and looked at the clock and groaned which I took as a 'yes'

My mum is mad too. Who wants a so called normal mum. Mad mums are way more fun. My mum might be mad but I love her just the way she is.

Toby you're the best wake-up service ever. So considerate. Always making sure your Mom doesn't oversleep. Oh, you're recycling your fur. That is very green of you.

Fur for compost!!!!! Doesn´t your mummy know that she can make the most gorgeous jewelry of your fur? Or cat toys? Or finger puppets for kiddies? It´s good for felting!
Really darling, you do your best to grow pure gold and they throw it on the compost. Humans!

Really Toby? You didn't even recognize your own fur? You must have had "Sleepy Eyes" still, cuz you just woke up! Jolan is quite right...you can make all sorts of things out of your fur. My meowmy has even heard of a place where you send your kitty's fur to them, and they make the most beautiful yarn you would ever imagine! They process it, send it back to you as yarn, then it is up to your meowmy to knit or crochet something special out of it. Doesn't it sound divine? Imagine...you could sleep at night under a warm, soft blanket of YOU! I really hope that my meowmy will send my fur to this company, cuz I can't wait for my furry own blankie! MOL!

Love,

Laura Belle
