Pet of the Week: Toby

If you couldn't guess from his model-pose photo – Toby the cat has a goal to be the center of attention. To accomplish this, he's practically developed a one-man show to make that a reality.

  • Act One: Snacks. See whole potato chip. Steal potato chip with tiny kitty mouth. Drop potato chip in safe spot. Pounce on whole potato chip to make many tiny potato chip pieces. Eat and repeat.
  • Act Two: Mischief. See mom, Supergrover, with the camera. Distract by knocking something over. Then act cute and innocent so your picture is snapped instead. Repeat. . . also involving mom, minus the camera and adding newspapers.
  • Act Three: Time for Bed. Announce bedtime with pacing and frantic meowing. Continue until mom lays down. Jump on bed and find comfortable spot as close to head as possible. Then push nose against face or place paws on top of face. Comfy for you, not so for mom.

End scene. Congratulations, Toby! I'd give you a standing ovation.

potato chips make cats do strange things. Toby looks like a handful and a half, but in a good way!
