You guys are the sweetest! :') I'm so sorry I was out of touch for so long. I was in France for a month and had very limited access to the internet so no cat site!
It's nice to come back and see that you remembered me, especially on my birthday!
I worried about Molly and Penelope while I was away (and believe me, the guilt I felt leaving them was tremendous) but my mom came by every morning to give Penelope her asthma medication, feed, brush, and play with them. Then, I paid a vet tech from my vet specialist clinic to come in the afternoon and do the same. I called almost every day to get cat reports.
Penelope was very happy to see me but Molly ran under the bed and meowed like she was scared. :'(. I laid down on the bed and 5 minutes later she came out and snuggled with me.
Hope you all are doing well and I apologize for the delayed response!
