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.
