Last night was the Fireworks Night and they banged and whistled and hissed and we all stayed safe at home. I decided the safest place would be under the throw on the armchair; a cosy little tent from where I couldn't see the fireworks and they couldn't see me.
Josie sat close by my mum. Then I heard mum say, "Ahh Josie. Of course you can have some stroksies" and a gentle rumble of purr. Then mum said "Josie - what are you after?" then "You want my place?" and the sound of movement.
When I emerged from my tent Josie was contentedly curled up where mum had been sitting having pushed mum out of her seat. Josie likes the warm mum leaves behind. Mum was sitting next to her wondering how that had happened.
I miss being in the garden but the bangs should start stopping now and we can go back to normal.
Cats celebrate things by running around and being happy and a bowl of something tasty and I wish people did too!!

Hmm, loud bangs don't sound like much fun to me!
We don't like fireworks either. Wow, that Josie is strong. I have tried rolling Mom out of bed with my front paws but have not succeeded at that yet.
Your mom is a wuss!
Our mum is a wuss but she's our wuss and we love her. Josie says she pushed mum with her nose and mum thought maybe there was a toy underneath her or our catnip banana so she moved aside and Josie seized the moment and the cushion!!
My mom is kind of a wuss, too. When the husband wants her to come help him with something, she says "I can't. I've got a cat on my lap."
