"Did you come into my life normal cats and go crazy or did I just get the mad ones?" - she was looking at Josie as she asked this but I was in the room so she meant me too.
It's fairly well known that mum and I have our different views of the world and Josie is normally the quiet one but she has her little excursions into the peculier and she was having one last night.
You'll see in my photo Josie in the background perched by the TV and the TV is sitting on a unit. The unit has shelves inside for the box and DVD player only they aren't in there. The engineer gave mum a talk about over-heating appliances last time he came and the DVD player doesn't work.
Mum asked Josie if she can remember why the DVD player doesn't work but Josie doesn't think she can actually. Mum says it's because every time the disc drawer slid in and out Josie tried to catch it and apparently it's not good for disc drives to be tugged back as they try and slide in. Mum did try and stop her but Josie can move fast and from unexpected angles when she needs to.
So anyway the unit has a round hole in the back for all the wires only there aren't any. What had surprised mum last night was Josie's face peering through that hole and a paw sweeping round to see what she could grab from inside the unit. It's all DVDs pretty much so the answer was nothing but that didn't stop Josie continuing to peep in and then reach as far as she could.
And that's what made my mum wonder why her cats aren't the peaceful companions that her friends imagine. Did she get the wrong cats or is it her?
Don't worry - she loves us exactly as we are!!I know that because I keep reminding her.

We are crazy around here too. I think I'll have to try messing with a DVD player though - that one I haven't done yet.
Hmmm. Maybe there are too many positive ions in your house.
Maybe I'll have to use my recently noticed appliance psychic powers to your DVD player: I'm sensing that the DVD player has strong emotional issues with Josie. Something about violating orifices. Is counselling possible? MOL
(As you may have noticed, pretty crazy here too!)
Josie is not crazy at all. Looking into holes in furniture, and trying to grab stuff through it, is so much fun. We had a big square hole in the back of Mom's desk. I always tried to grab the papers inside the desk. Until Mom mentioned it to a friend. And the friend put some heavy cardboard over the hole :(
