I can't believe it! Mom forgot about me. No, she didn't leave me in the car or forget to pick me up somewhere. She forgot about me in my own home.
Here's the story. I have my own room. My beds are there. My nip toys are there. My food, my water and my box are all there. But, I do like to "stroll the deck" as Mom likes to say. I patrol the upstairs hallway and sometimes come down the first few steps to see what is going on downstairs. Mom doesn't like to leave me out too long, because I only really like to use my own litterbox. I am only allowed out in the hallway when Mom is upstairs or within earshot of me, because I will meow to go back in my room.
Tonight, Mom gave me supper in my room and a came back a little later to clean boxes. She let me out in the hallway and continued on to do the other boxes. She then went down to eat her supper. After supper she went over to the bowling alley to practice and then went to cat-sit Silly. Ooops! What did she forget?
Me! She came home to find me sitting on the stairs. Tapping my paw and giving her a lecture. She came right up, opened my door, and I stood right in the doorway and continued my tirade. She won't forget me anytime soon.
Mom's note. We were gone about three hours, much longer than I would usually leave her out. She was fine. No accidents. Rusty sometimes bullied her in the past, but since she has been sick he has been very sweet to her. With the heat, I think everyone was sacked out after supper and didn't even care that she was there.

Hi Mrs. Murphy! My mom furgets me too sometimes! I eat in a separate place from my brofurs- (otherwise they run me off and eat my food!) - so I eat in a bedroom with the door closed and sometimes Mom furgets to come back and open the door! But when she furgets, I remind her by pawing and scratching on the door loudly!!
Anyway, I'm glad you gave her a lecture when she got home! I should try giving my mom a lecture too!
I eat in a separate room from my fursiblings because they will gobble up my food before I get a chance to eat it. I am a very leisurely eater. MOL Sometimes Mom will forget she has locked the cat gate and when I get done eating I usually have to go potty, which is on the other side of the cat gate. Uh oh! Needless to say, Mom tries not to forget.
Poor Mrs. M! That was very sweet and considerate of you not to create havoc while your forgetful Mama was gone. :)
