Last night we had one of those brief moments when it wasn't too cold to go out and it wasn't raining so I was in the garden fending off dragons and mum was cooking her supper. I heard someone coming to the front door so I ran to be let in my door in case mum needed protecting from them.
But it was my friend Alison - and she had brought my sheep toy. Hoorah. Mum got everything on to cook and then took the tags off and started flipping him about. She looked like she was enjoying herself so much neither Josie nor I liked to interrupt.
"Come on Cats - join in," she pleaded but we preferred to spectate. There was some muttering about the foolish and unpredictable nature of cats and then she went and got her supper off the stove.
While she was eating it Josie and I went to vestigate the sheep. It has catnip in and smells pretty good and we started trying to make it dance about like it had been but it just lay there.
"Make it move," I demanded of my mum.
Seh sighed. "When I am finished eating," she said rather unhelpfully.
Anyway the story has a happy ending as mum did finish her supper and did make the sheep bounce about again and I got to chase it and Josie got to watch me chasing it (It is my birthday present after all!) So that was a pretty cool evening. The only bad thing is that Catster HQ still haven't sorted out my Catster Plus Subscription so I still can't load my new photos.

I'm glad that you FINALLY got your birthday present. Mietzi and I like the nip too. So that would be a good present for us *hint hint*
Have fun with dat sheep!
It's not nearly so much playing with a toy if you don't have your mum's full attention.
