Toby's Diary

Our morning routine

Normally we wake our mum up and she mutters at us until her clock joins in and then she gets up. She gives us our breakfast and then I go out on patrol while she has her shower and eats her breakfast. By the time I've checked all round the garden and know everything is Ok mum has her muesli finished and I get the rest of the milk while she puts her laptop on her lap and takes my dictation for my diary.

Today it is still too damp to go out so I was ready for my milk early. Instead of being impressed with my efficiency mum kept pushing my head away and saying she hadn't finished with her bowl yet. I thought that was rude.

Then eventually she finished and I got my milk and then out came the laptop. She started typing and all was well - until Josie came up.

"Could I go on your lap?"

Mum looked at the laptop and looked at the cat and said, "Not really. There isn't room."

Josie looked at the laptop and she looked at the lap and decided mum was wrong about that. There was a sliver of lap she could see and she could squeeze on there. So she did and tried hard to lie down in the available room.

Mum pushed the laptop away and is typing this with one hand and clinging on to the laptop with the other. Josie is purring with the pleasure of being there and being right.

Josie does like a lap occasionally. I say laps are for kittens. Mum asked "what are tummy rubs for then?"

"Fierce tigers like me!"

Sometimes we like to change our morning routine.

Mum put her tablet on my back when I sit on her lap first thing in the morning. Still trying to work out why it's called a tablet it looks like a small evil computer to me.

Josie is lucky if she can draw your mum's attention away from her laptop I get my mum's attention after a few hours. Hope your morning milk was really good.
