Toby's Diary

My mum left us

She went to work like usual but dinner time came. No mum. We thought she would come in all bustling and muttering about traffic jams and motorway mayhem but more and more hours went by. No mum. The sun took himself off to bed and all was dark. No sign of her.

I sat in the window looking and looking.

Then it was gone ten o'clock at night and then she came walking down the path. She saw me looking out for her.

"Oh Toby!" she exclaimed as she came in. "Have you been waiting for me all this time?" She scooped me up and squoodged me.

"I was very hungry," I explained.

"I left you a hearty breakfast because I knew I would be late." She looked down at our empty bowls. "Not hearty enough."

"No, not hearty enough" I complained. Josie meantime went a bit crazy like she always does when mum disappears and comes back.

Mum had been at a training event.

"What was it about? I hope it was worth starving your poor cats for." I asked

"Mental toughness. How to stay positive when times are grim."

"Like still having faith your mum will come home and looking for her even when your tummy is sad and empty."

Us cats are extremely mentally tough!!

Yes we are tough: my Mom needs 12-14 hours of sleep at night, but often I'll get hungry or frisky while she's asleep, and it takes a;; my strength to keep from waking her up, because I might get kicked out if I do.
BTW, Concats on the DDP!
