Friday started so well. It looked like mum had decided not to bother with work so we had playtime and we had cuddles - but then out came the big bag. I know what this means. Lots of things went in it and I climbed in too but mum took me out and without a backward glance off she went.
Days went by and there was no sign of her. I think she was gone about a month. Luckily we have lovely neighbours who have been feeding Josie and me, otherwise our case would have been quite desperate.
Then last night there she was, home again. She says she was only gone for the weekend. I said it felt like a whole month and she said she missed me too.
Her friend's cat had looked after her though. She had been asleep when she heard a scritching at the door and a whispered, "it's me, Charlie, can I come in?" so she opened the door and he said he thought she might be missing her cat so would she like him to snuggle with. She would so settled back to sleep although she said he woke her up several times for more head-rubs. She does do a good headrub, my mum.
I asked what Charlie is like and he is mostly black like me although more white patches and he is so big you could nearly make two of me and he is very brave. They also have a dog which is a very big dog and the house is half for the cats and half for the dog as the dog says he would like to eat the cats and Charlie likes to tease the dog by being just out of reach and seeing how agitated he can make the dog. Mum thought foolhardy rather than brave but he has been doing it for years apparently and come to no harm.
But mum did say it all got very noisy so she is pleased to be back with us quiet cats and we are pleased to have her home with us.

Glad she is back with y'all!
Your mum would never leave you and not make sure you and Josie are taken care of. She loves you too much mate.
I felt abandoned this weekend too Toby. My pawrents were gone during each day all day long, then they returned at night fall. Thank goodness fur that, I was hungry! They said they were doing a Yard Sale. I don't know why anyone would want to buy a yard, but humans are silly folk anyways. I am glad that your mum is back at home, now efurrything can get back to normal. My pawrents said they are done selling the yard, so they will stay at home more often now too...thank goodness for that!
