Toby's Diary

My empty bowl

Mondays are always a rush when my mum comes home from work as she has to feed us, feed herself, get changed and go to her dance class. That means neglected cats which is just wrong although we do our best to cope.

Last night a real emergency happened - my biscuit bowl was empty. "Mum," I called. She was washing up. "What?" she asked. "Mum," I called louder.

She looked and could plainly see one empty bowl and one hungry cat.

"In a minute," she said shaking her sudsy hands, "I'll just finish the dishes."

But I was so hungry. There were no biscuits left at all, not even crumbs. But I could smell where they had been. That delicious aroma of duck, turkey and vegetables hardened into tasty pellet form for my delight. Where there was scent there had to be flavour surely. I started licking the empty bowl. Mmm, jsut enough to tickle my taste buds.

Mum looked at me licking my empty bowl and said, "Toby - that is pathetic" but that was her fault.

Anyway she took pity on me and filled my bowl again and so we are friends again. And now it's Tuesday so no rush this evening (hopefully!)

Our Mums don't have to do much to meet our basic need but if there is one thing I don't like mum forgetting is to feed me. I hate being hungry. My bowl should be full at all times and there is nothing else I need apart from food. Mum thinks I have hollow legs.

Does she need to go dancing? Why doesn't she stay home and then you can teach her how to dance.
