Toffee's Sacred Duty




The old woman says I've got this HALF right. What does she mean? Is she getting at me? I think she's getting at me...

I've had a good morning. I had a bit of a furball stuck in my throat but I managed to heave it up on the old man's chair. It'll be a nice surprise for him when he wants a sit-down. I tried to catch a bird in the garden, to no avail. Got my paws a bit muddy but I managed to wipe them off on the clean laundry. The old woman will be delighted that she doesn't have to get the cloth for my mucky feet.

Postscript: The old man was NOT pleased and the old woman shouted for an hour about having to "re-wash the clothes" or something like that. Anyhoo, I'm now giving them both my most "endearing" look - you know, head tilted, big eyes, downturned mouth.

The old man said, "What's the matter with you, Toffee? Have you got the belly ache?" WHAT?!

  1. Humans don't appreciate a well placed hairball or clean laundry being muddied. Trust me, I know!

    1. It's sad that they have so little knowledge of the ways of the world. *shakes head in despair

  2. Toffee, perhaps it's time to trade in your humans for a pair that lavish you with praise for your hairball placement and muddy-paws cleaning!
    'Round here, I don't have a pair of pants or shorts that it's full of pulls from cat claws ripping the fabric, and I'm as happy as a lark to have them.

    1. That's a good idea, although on the whole they have their uses. I shall give them a second chance!

    1. Tell me about it! This morning I was told off for bringing them a gift of a huge dead spider. The old woman screamed. Definitely something wrong with that woman.

  5. At least you don't need toxic chemicals applied to be allowed outside. ~sigh~ We humans do our best, sweet Toffee.

    1. They somehow seem to have different priorities - they are somewhat lacking in the appreciation of those finer things of life you mention.

  7. Humans are so difficult to please. Then they wonder why we don't even try! ~Angel Bear Cat
