Toby's Mystery Thursday

I'm a pretty big mancat. Weighed in at just a bit over 17 lbs at my last stabby place visit. Yeah, I've lost a little since Mom put us on this Evo food but still. I'm also a tall cat. Plus, I'm orange - I even kinda glow in the dark. I am very hard to miss.

So why, dear furrriends, does my Mom NOT SEE me so often? She is always, always tripping over me. I mean, she'll be doing something at the sink, say, and I'll just saunter up right behind her without making a noise and wait for her to notice me, like a polite kitteh does. But what happens? She turns 'round and trips right over me! Like I'm not even there! Sheeesh.

Ok, maybe it is just a little bit funny to see her go staggering across the room trying not to step on me, but y'know, it really kinda hurts my feelings.



  1. We understand what you are saying, but we sure do not understand why this happens. Mom said maybe a collar and cow bell would help.

  2. There is no need to apologize for being a large Mancat, Toby. I'm one myself and I say there's just more of me to love. Although in your case, it would be more of you to love and fall over!

  3. I get the same problem. I like to lie behind mum when she is working in the kitchen, then she turns around and falls over me. She says,'Oh Eric, I didn't see you there'. I'm a big ginger mancat too at 23 lbs. How could she possibly not see me?

  4. Well, I think you answered your own question there Toby. Humans. You can't live without them, but you can't train them either.

  5. Mine act like they can't see in the dark!
