Am I crazy for doing this?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
For the first time in the the almost four months that we have had him, we had to leave our kitten alone in the house for two nights this weekend. I of course made sure there was plenty of extra food and water and clean litter for him to use. I am not doubting my sanity on this but the first night away my wife asked me "I wonder how our baby is doing?" and I said "why don't we call him?" My wife looked at me like I was from the planet Mars and then I explained that like a lot of people, we have a phone machine that allows a sixty second message to be left. And knowing that Persi always runs to the machine when he hears it ringing, I knew for sure that he would be sitting right there by the machine when I left my sixty second message to him both nights we were gone. And I know very well that he knew it was me. Even if I am crazy for thinking so, it sure made me feel a lot better and I cannot help but thinking it made our baby feel better too! Perhaps if you heard the message I left him you would doubt my sanity but I suspect that I am certainly not the first person to have ever done such a thing.

Oh, I've definitely done that before!!

You're not alone!!!

Even if I leave my cats alone for just a day or so I have neighbors check up on them: I just can't relax unless I know they're okay!!

That is so sweet!! I don't have one of those machines, so I can't say I've done it before, but would if I could! But I will admit to talking to my dog Maggie (who is living with my parents right now) atleast once a week while my mom or dad holds the phone to her ear!

Oh yes, I have called home and left my cats a message on the answer machine. Just part of loving them and missing them.

There is nothing wrong with that...I always talked to Bella on the phone when I went away...my husband would put it up to her ear!!!
