Can you believe that Mom left us for a whole weekend? Us either! On Friday, Mom went bolting out the door without so much as a by-your-leave and headed for the airport (she was pretty stressed because she hadn't flown since she was eighteen days old). She flew to Seattle to attend her cousin's 90th birthday party, visit aunts/uncles/cousins and others, and to check up on our grandparents midway through their vacation.
Mom's colleague was our catsitter and she did a very good job of feeding us and policing our litter boxes (Thanks, Mimi!).
When she got back after midnight this morning (her flight was delayed), we greeted her with purrs and head-butts. Boy, we sure did miss her. Sparky couldn't stop licking her after she showered and filled our food and water dishes. Frankly, I'm glad that she showered. Planes STINK ... even the first class cabin.
It's just not the same when Mom's not around. She makes a very comfortable sleeping spot. I hope that she goes to bed early tonight because she looked pretty tired out (Can you believe that she went to work today? Me either!!)
Anyway, we're glad to have her home, but we are a little upset that her carry-on bag didn't have any salmon for us (even through she brought back some for people who took care of us and watched the house). Hrrmmph ... It hardly seems fair. The grandparents better not forget ...
Oh, yeah ... I can't forget a big HAPPY GOTCHA-DAY to Cocoa Puff. Puffy is nine years old today.
