Abby: We waited. And we waited . . . And we waited. And finally it happened, Ms. C is home! Oh, we were so excited. We realize that some of you other cats may not approve of our uninhibited approval and joy at Ms. C's return . . . but we were so happy that we ran to the door, never turning our backs on her, and we've been following her night and day ever since. Yes, she has been home for a couple of days now, and we demanded undivided attention, which is another reason we have not blogged. But now we're all back!

Here is a picture of us from last evening, we were keeping an eye on Ms. C while she was at her desk. This is also as close as we ever come to cuddling, sharing the same piece of furniture:

Of course, when Ms. C is at her desk, I often like to be there too. It's a great place to chill out and nap. Here I am, I'm feeling so lazy that I don't bother to open my sleepy eyes while I am talking to Ms. C:

Here is one of the places I searched for Ms. C while she was away. I just could not quite believe that she was not here to cuddle and feed me. I can get a good view of this place from my usual spot on Ms. C's desk, but she wasn't there:

Stygia: I couldn't quite believe it myself when Ms. C walked in the door the other afternoon. My tail went straight up and I got to her as fast as I could, so I could sniff her and give her a good leg-rub!

Speaking of things we hadn't seen in days, with Ms. C's return, the sun also returned! It was a totally blissful experience. In fact, in the sunlight, Ms. C was able to get a nice photo of my whiskers, which are notoriously hard to photograph because they are so dark:

Last but not least, a happy belated birthday to Ms. C from us, the cats! We even sent her a birthday card (which she was not expecting!). Please have a piece of the wonderful cake that Ms. C's own mom made for her. We don't eat chocolate, but if we did we would want some of this cake:

Welcome back! I think it's a good thing for you both to stick close to Mrs C, just incase she disappears again! Those pictures are beautiful, you both look so happy and glossy. Belated Happy Birthday greetings to Mrs C too!

Have a great weekend!

We can imagine your great joy at having Ms. C back. The more you cover her in cuddles and purrs, the less she is likely to want to leave you again!

Great photos! We especially like the sleepy/smiley one of Abby!

Your Pals,
Sen-Chan, Tom and Tama-Chan

Happy belated Birthday to your mom! Ours hasn't left us so far and we think that would be furry hard. But moms have things to do sometimes! We are happy to have you back, girls! You look wonderful as always. Nice whiskers-shot, Stygia!

Happy belated Birthday to Ms. C! I don't think it is a coincidence that the siunshine returned when Ms. C did.

Rascal said...

Yay! And Happy Birthday to Mrs. C. I'm not allowed to eat chocolate either, but I think a catnip cake would be preferable anyway.

Samantha and Mr. Tigger said...
