Picture the scene - it was the middle of the night and all was quiet and still.
Josie was curled up in a neat ball sleeping sweetly and no doubt dreaming of summer days. She was lying on my mum's back, gently rocked by my mum's breathing as mum was deeply asleep as well.
All was calm, all was peaceful. Enter Toby.
I climbed up to the window sill to get some momentum and launched myself onto the sleeping pair - Pounce mode. It was brilliant, both of them were so startled and wide awake in seconds. Josie ran off and mum looked at me and I purred.
"That was mean," mum said.
"That was funny," I said. Then I wondered "What was you dreaming about?"
Mum thought for a moment and then said, "I was putting my feet in a bucket of cold baked beans."
She was teasing me "You weren't. That would be a stupid dream."
"Bizarrely I truly was and I have no idea why."
I can assure you my mum never puts her feet in her food.
"Probably best I woke you then," was my verdict.
"Maybe - but it will be hard to get back to sleep having woken so suddenly."
Luckily if there is one thing I know about it's how to get to sleep. Plenty of purrs and headrubs and stroking me, that's what would do it. Mum is so lucky to have us cats, even when she's sleeping her life is full of surprises.

Hehe Toby! You are such a character! I pounced on my mom's stomach today while she was on the phone. It was hilarious!
MOL! Maurice puts his feet in his food, but I haven't seen any of the humans do it yet.
That was funny but mean at the same time. Our humans need there sleep or they get grumpy. This could come back and bite you tomorrow.
My mom says cold baked beans are really good for keeping skin soft.
Alos, concats on being a daily diary pick...AGAIN!
