T is for Tail With a Happy Ending





I was investigating a small scab on my tail. I tried to grab it to have a closer look but my tail flopped just out of reach. You would think it had a mind of its own. I flipped around to try to get from another angle but it flopped again. Flip. Flop. Flip. Flop.’

I heard a voice from the sitting-room door.

‘What the hell are you doing, Toffee?’

The old man must have been watching my exertions. I ignored him, pounced and finally managed to capture my tail. I started chewing at the scab.

‘Good Lord, Toffee, what a funny little weirdo you are.’

Weirdo?

This from the man who plucks his nose hairs with his wife’s eyebrow tweezers and sings into his hairbrush with his collar up pretending to be Elvis.

    1. It's certainly not us who are weird, Lola. I think hoomans need to take a good hard look in the mirror!

  3. One must be patient with human quirks. And I think you're training yours quite well.

  5. I love that photo, but how embarrassing! I call my Benny a "weirdo" all the time. It's a term of endearment. I also call him a "wiener" a lot.

    1. Wiener is not a term we use much here in the UK, but we hear it a lot on American television shows and like it a lot! I'm going to start using it to describe the old man and old woman!
