Toby's Diary

We nearly starved

Warning: This story may be too scary for any kittens present.

It began well enough. We were all happy on Saturday morning. Mum was pootling about; I was basking in my glory of having been a Daily Diary Pick and Josie was sunbathing. Then mum went out and when she came back she had Grandpa with her. We don't see a lot of Grandpa on account of him travelling a lot. He finds that most countries have warmer weather and more sunshine than the UK and he likes to meet new people and learn about their lives and history so he isn't much at home.

He didn't even stay long in our home. Then mum grabbed big bag and they were gone.

This is where it gets scary.

For hours passed, dark-time came- but no food. We polished off the last scraps of breakfast and all the biscuits mum had left and then all we had were our rumbly tummies.

Dawn dawned and the birds started singing but they were outside out of reach. They sang of the tasty worms they would be catching and even worms sounded good to eat to our hungry ears. But no-one came.

It wasn't until afternoon when mum came back. I told her that we hadn't been fed at all and she said, "Toby - you always say that" and then she looked at our licked clean bowls and where they were and the food on the side and she said, "Oh dear. I think you might be telling the truth this time."

She filled our bowls and there was much rejoicing.

Then later Paul from next door knocked. Mum had remembered to ask but he had forgotten to tell the others and had been out. They've agreed mum will put any future dates in writing!

He was very sorry and mum said that was Ok and we were none the worse for our ordeal. But she wasn't the one who nearly starved.

We have forgiven her though. She had brought back some tuna fish so we could try the biscuits in tuna juice as recommended by my Catster friends. Mmmmmmmmm!! It's a recipe I highly recommend

OMC! This is awful! How scared were you of wasting away to nothing? Truly frightening! Paul should be tortured like you and Josie were...he should be locked in a room wif no food or fresh water, and no one to meow wif for several days. You poor boy! MOL! Let's hope that this nefur happens again!

OMC, what a horror story. Toby, you are so brave. How did you ever make it? I don't think I could have endured that. I love to eat. Your Mom needs to program Paul's phone number on speed dial and then you just have to push that one button and then you can call and yell at him if he furgets about you.
Concats to Daily Diary Pick. Well deserved after all your suffering.
