My mom and dad went away almost all day today again. I don't like it when I'm here all by myself. The house is really quiet, and I feel quite strange all by myself on the big bed. My mom left the window open, but not even the sweet smells of early spring wafting in through the screen diverted my attention from my aloneness. I kept on worrying that maybe they will never come home, and I'll be all alone forever. That made me quite upset and sad.
When my mom and dad finally came back in the late afternoon I cried and cried and had a tantrum. I was really glad they were home, but all my frustration had to come out first. My mom and dad were really nice about it too. My mom let me sit in her lap for a while. She knew all I really needed was a hug to make things right. She petted me for a while and told me I was a nice cat. My dad joined us, and we three all lounged on the bed for a while. After a few minutes of peacefullness and affection I began to feel all right again.
Later on after dinner I jumped into my mom's lap for more cuddles, and instead of calling me Won or Cupcake or Cat or Baby, she called me Binky-Poo. My dad said my name wasn't Binky-Poo, it was Quee. He said one time when he was up in the middle of the night having a midnight snack I told him my name wasn't Won-Ton, it was Quee. I did no such thing! That is not true! I never said any such thing! I'm glad my mom didn't believe him. She looked at him out of the corner of her eye and said, "Oh, really?!" I think my dad was acting very silly.
I am spending the evening on the couch next to my mom, a part of me always touching her. I need to feel in contact with her. I was alone for so long today! It is good we are all home together now.
