All this cold has made me really appreciate my mum. She plays games with us and feeds us and loves us. It's important, of course, to show your love and appreciation back.
So mum went to bed last night and I gave her lots of snuggles and headrubs (and only dribbled a little bit). She works a bit like a slot machine. She says, "Toby - I must sleep" and the hand goes to rest by her side. I tap her with a paw and the tap produces more stroking, then stop, hand gone, paw tap and so on.
In the end though she looked very tired so I let her be. I was just looking at her all peaceful and sleepy. I watched and after a while her eyes opened again. "I can't sleep with you staring at me like that. I keep expecting the paw."
"I am only looking at you. I like to do that."
She closed her eyes again and I carried on looking. Eyes open again. "Toby - just go and do something like a normal cat."
I sighed. She likes to watch us sleep; I'm not sure why it's such a big deal for me to watch over her. (And another thing - why give us a delicious tuna fish dinner and then complain about my tuna breath?)
In the end I did go to my chair as she kept opening her eyes and looking at me and it wasn't very restful for either of us. Sometimes I think I will never understand people!

A normal cat? that's a tall order!
