I'm Back!

Mom got home after dark on Tuesday and brought me some new toys:  two small squeaky mousies, one with a fever-butt, and a furry ferret.  I played with all of them a little bit, but mostly I just wanted Mom to pay attention to me.
Here I am today, ignoring my new toys, as usual.  I was really glad to see Mom home again, especially as I had eaten up all my Stinky Goodness.  She brought a strange man in with her who wanted to pet me.  I went over to him and let him pet me just a little.

Karen Jo:  That was my nephew.  He drove me home from the airport.

Then Mom fed me and petted me and played with me for a while.  Then she decided to go to her room and turned out the lights and left me all alone in the dark again.  I cried and cried until she came back and turned on the lights once more. She petted me and asked what was wrong.  Then she said the magic word "bed" and I followed her back to her room and curled up on the bed with her and we watched TV together and I got petted and petted and petted.  It was wonderful.  She only got up to get into her PJs and into the bed and then I got petted some more.

I missed Mom a lot, but I didn't mope or stop eating or anything like that.  I met the cat sitter at the door whenever she came over and let her give me my Interferon with no fuss at all.  I didn't get my poop medicine while Mom was gone, because Mom said that was a bit too complicated for this cat sitter, but I am pooping just fine.  No trace of pudding poop, so Mom says I don't have to take my poop medicine any more, unless the pudding poop comes back again.  Yay!  I played with the cat sitter a little tiny bit, but I wouldn't play with the other lady who came by a couple of times.  I did let her pet me some.

We didn't blog before now because Mom has been a bit tired or something.

Karen Jo:  I was two time zones away and on a different schedule.  I am almost back to normal now.  I had a nice visit, but didn't do much.  I did get lots of rest and I feel great.

Thanks to every cat and dog who came to my house trashing party.  I got almost everything back to normal before Mom showed up, so she didn't suspect anything.  All she found was a bit of unrolled TP.

I sure am glad to hear that your Mom is back where she belongs Herman...with you! I'm very proud of you for doing so good with the sitter!!!

I am glad that your mom is back. I think you are right to not pay to much attention to those toys. She needs to know she cannot just go off and leave you like that!

Mommy has abandoned us too, Herman, and we are doing our best to trash the house by ourselves. She will be home on Saturday and mommy's sister is coming in to feed us and play with us but it's not the same. But...mommy's sister does give good skritches!
So, snuggles and happy purrs that your mommy is home.

It's nice to see you both back! We're glad your mom had a good visit, though of course it would be tiring.

And we think you did very well with the cat sitter, Herman; we're impressed. Nothing beats moms or dads, though! :-)

Glad to hear everyone is home safe and sound, and that the house was cleaned up before she arrived. We don't want to get into trouble for partying! Those toys look like lots of fun Herman, especially the mouse with the fevver butt!
