Welcome home, MOM!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
After a week or so in Oregon (when I was literally 20 minutes away from Hissy, and still unable to find her the one time I could get the car away from my father...forgive me, please...I am sooooo sorry...), and after a rough flight home (I got a cold while up there), I am home.

Of course, it isn't quite the way I left it. My first sight of the house, Simon was in the front window. I could hear him hollering "MOM's home! MOM's home!!" to the other cats, and as I came through the back door, satchels in hand, I was ambushed. 22 lb Esse thumping my legs, Pie twirling 'round my legs, and Simon climbing up my legs. I ended up sitting down in the laundry room, and just letting them crawl all over me.

And then I saw the kitchen...cat treats all over, empty food dishes, sugar canister on the floor, a broken dish in the sink...this is NOT how I left it. Sighing, I went ahead and cleaned up. And then headed to the bathroom...where I discovered toilet paper all over the hallway and bath, as well as all my makeup and brushes scattered about. I went ahead and tidied up that mess, as well.

And so, like any other weary traveler, I laid down on my bed. Within an instant, I was being groomed, cuddled, chewed, and regarded. I soon fell asleep, circled by my kitty family; Pengy even came out and laid on the rocker. Purrs and rumbles of contentment could be heard. And I had warm fuzzy bodies whichever way I moved my hand. Heaven. I tell ya, simply heaven.

Simon hasn't left my side or my lap since I got home about 6 hours ago...the others have settled down a bit. But man, was it good or what to be loved by these guys, even if they tore the house apart while I was gone!

Hope your holidays were wonderful...

Aw, I'm glad they were happy to see you - esp. Pengy. Sorry the house needed some tidying up, I guess they didn't clean up after their crazy party...

What a nice home-coming for you. Did Pengy seem happier than usual to see you? I'm waiting impatiently for the day she wants all your love.

People haven't lived until they've experienced kitty love!

Oh, Michele, that brings tears to my eyes. Your babies (including Pengy) love you SOOO much.

I second what Susie said: "People haven't lived until they've experienced kitty love!"

It sounds as if they just started the "welcome home" party a bit early, and got carried away. That must have been a wonderful feeling, knowing you were missed so much.

It really was. Nothing compares with coming home to a kitty family which missed you.
