Abby: We are sorry we were away for so long! I think Ms. C is finally doing better. In fact, we all are fine, so if anyone was concerned that we were abducted by aliens or some-such thing, we assure you, it's not true. We have been here all along.
Today, Ms. C did some shopping, including a few new items of clothing for Mr. R. She took them out of the packaging and put them on the floor to carry downstairs with the laundry she is doing, but FIRST, I had to make a full inspection and a proper cat-nest out of the deal:
Of course, Stygia could not leave me alone for long. She wanted to get into the action, but I repelled her advances and burrowed and stayed in as long as I liked! It was quite comfy and smelled interesting too.
Stygia: I think it's fine that Abby nested in the new clothes before I did. I was interested in them, of course, but I am very patient. I knew that as soon as Abby left, there would be a pre-formed and pre-warmed spot for me to curl up upon! I am still there even as Ms. C types, and I will probably remain there as long as she lets this stuff lay here.
