It’s not often that I make my feelings known. It’s not often that I clamour for attention. In fact, it’s not often that I do anything out of the ordinary to demand anything, so you’d think this one time, this one occasion when I dared to make my feelings known, there wouldn’t have been such a big deal or a big fuss made! 

Ollie enjoying the grey jumperMum has this jumper – it’s grey and soft – and I love it. I loved it when she was wearing it as she was lying on the sofa when she didn’t feel well. I would nestle up to her to help look after her and this particular jumper was a great joy to nestle into. It was better by the bumps that are Mum inside the jumper because I can mould myself into those bumps too – but this particular day in question, I had just gone upstairs to see what she was doing and the jumper was on the bed – just waiting for me.

I like to have a bit of a kneading session before I settle down so I did this for a while. It’s apparently good luck if you circle three times in one direction and three times in another direction before lying down to sleep – it helps your dreams or something – or so I vaguely remember Garfie telling me when I first came to the Daily Mews Mansion.

So I did all this and Mum was horrified because she was going to wear my jumper but couldn’t – because I was asleep on it. HAH!!! That’ll teach her to leave things out that I like.

I have to admit to being slightly rude and shouting at her so that I could have it the next day, and the next, and the next ….. so I guess the jumper is mine now.

Isn’t it funny though, when you can have something you want whenever you want, it loses its appeal and after a few days I decided that I didn’t want to sleep on it again!
