Mum said she was very tired last night after work so she and Josie settled down for a snoozle on the sofa. I let them sleep awhile but then I wanted to play with my sheep. I tapped him and this is where the clever part comes in. He is fitted with a bell. When I tapped him the bell tinkled.
Mum woke up. Tinkle, tinkle. Mum knew I wanted to play and turfed Josie off her legs and game on! I have a sheep fitted with a mum summoning device. How cool is that! (And don't be sad for Josie. She joined in and we had a top evening.)
But mum reckoned she was still a little tired and what she felt like doing was her jigsaw. Now we first saw this before Christmas - a picture cut into 1000 pieces that she was trying to fix. Despite my help she didn't get much done that first time.
I would like to report that she carried on working diligently and got it finished but the reality is she folded it in its portapuzzle and that's the last we saw of it until yesterday evening.
She carried it out and unfolded the portapuzzle; she straightened out the pieces and picked off the kitty litter stones.
"OK cats," she said, "you have beaten me this time. It's been folded up, there's foam sheets, I haven't opened it once. How did you get kitty litter in it?"
A cat's ability to spread litter in unlikely and inaccessible places is one of our many amazing gifts and there was no way we were going to tell her how we do it. Cats are simply geniuses and that's all she needs to know.

MOL - that litter does seem to end up everywhere!
My mum tried after work most of the time too. So I just go and sit with her where ever she is. If she on the couch I sit on lap and if she at the computer in her bed room I sit on her bed and purr really loudly. Either way we spend time together and it's nice.
Cool sheep. Mom summoning device! That's awesome. I need one. I try meowing but I think tinkling would be more effective.
Mom made a tunnel out of butcher paper for me to play with, and it serves a similar purpose: very noisy, and when I'm rustling I want to play! Shame for her she left it on the floor next to her bed when she went to sleep last night. Let's just say she didn't get as much sleep as she would have liked! MOL
