L is for Lullaby





After a busy day the old man and the old woman opted for an early night. I crept in about half an hour later and they were both fast asleep. I thought I’d give them sweet dreams so I settled down between them and started to sing a lullaby. Were they grateful? No, they were not.

They awoke. ‘For goodness sake, Toffee,’ the old man said sleepily. ‘Why all the racket?’
The old woman sat bolt upright and switched on the light. ‘Whassup?’ she shouted, like some bad-tempered teenager teleported from the 1980s.

‘It’s only Toffee,’ said the old man. ‘She’s having a funny five minutes.’ He began to stroke me and said, ‘Settle down, girl. Time to sleep.’

The old woman switched out the light and sighed deeply.

‘That cat is absolutely nuts,’ she said.

Charming.

  1. You want a human's attention? Stick your wet nose in his or her ear! Second best ... a claw up the nose gets his or her attention rather quickly. Over my life, I've had tens of hundreds of schemes to wake my Momma up - but those are the only two she could never train herself to ignore! ~Bear Cat

  2. Your story is exactly why I shut my bedroom door, with the cats on the "wrong" sid of it, at night! The dog on the other hand gets to sleep with me!
