Do our cats miss us when we’re gone? Alfred and Angel are used to us going away, I was particularly curious how Izaak and Lorelai would react to our being away, since usually when we go off on a trip, they come with us.
Hero the London Lion which I had seen in a shop in Covent Garden, but we were too tired and hungry to go in and look at him. Later, after a rest and some food, I wished I had stopped and gotten the “Lion in a British jumper” because he was wicked cute!
As luck would have it, I found him at the airport as we were leaving!
I introduced Hero to Rory…but she didn’t seem very impressed.
“Really mom? Really? You left us ALONE. For a WEEK. Without taking us with you! And you bring this thing back with you?
“Look at me. My eyes are bigger, and I am way cuter!”
In the end, I am not sure if Rory missed us…or the fact that we take her outside to run.
Meanwhile, the moment we walked in the door, Zak was yelling for his chicken neck.
After he had demolished it, we sat on the sofa and I gave him cuddles. At first, he seemed happy I was home…
…I think he remembered how much mommy kisses him.
I have a deep suspicion that he didn’t miss the kissies.
But he did miss me.
So much so that he is clearly contemplating his escape from my dastardly clutches.
