Yesterday started scary but ended happy.
My friend Dee came round carrying a step ladder and some scary looking implements. Normally my friends sit down, drink coffee and entertain me but Dee just waltzed straight through into the garden and my mum followed.
"See what I mean?" said my mum.
"OK," said Dee. "If we start on this big bush here.."
And they started hacking away at my favourite bush, chop, choppety,chop. I watched from a very safe distance. At one point they saw me, "Here's Toby" but being greeted by someone clutching shears is a bit scary so I moved to where they couldn't see me.
At one point I heard my mum say, "Shouldn't we stop now? The bin is full." That is my mum's normal gardening philosophy. But Dee carried on and they stacked all the rest of the branches.
Eventually they were done. Mum reckons the garden looks bigger and brighter. I went for a good explore - and so did Josie when she thought it was really safe. There are fewer hiding places which is good as scary cat won't be able to hide but bad as I like hiding places. Mum has left me some long grass as I like playing in that. Josie likes it as there are fewer out of reach perching places for the birds.
Mum says it will all grow back in time but when they cut bits off me they didn't so I don't know how she is so sure.
Anyway we were all tired by the evening but perked up no end when mum announced that once again I have been honoured with a Daily Diary Pick!! So a very happy ending to my eventful day.

Congrats again on the DDP! Glad you still have some grass to hide in.
Well, when she cuts your claws, they grow back!
Our mom chops down her bushes to at the right time too.
