When I arrived home Saturday evening, nobody was there, I mean of the cats, only Mr. G. who helped us to unload the car. Finally Arthur showed up, wanted to jump in the trunk once it was empty, and was rather offended that we didn't let him. Then he disappeared.

Mr. G. had a lot of work ! He birdysitted Dominiques two Parakeets, which replaces the canary who died, and these two once love to chat and sing the whole day. As they were locked in the guestroom, Arthur was sitting outside the door and sang too. At least the first days then he gave up. Mr. G. had to play Udini to get into the room, otherwise Arthur would have sneaked inside like a flash.

Our other neighbor was also on holidays for a few days so he took care of her cat too. Poor man was overworked.

Pookie waited until I had thrown my stuff in my room and sat amongst the things for a little wash. She realized that this time it was an arrival and not a departure, so she quickly lost all interest.

The sun came out on Monday and I put Oscar the lawn mower robot on the grass which had grown so much that I thought I should rather have two sheep instead of two cats. Although they eat grass too but not enough for a nice looking lawn.

Rosie and Arthur checked the street, but nobody was around, only me pulling out some weeds.

Rosie hopefully looked after something which moved, even a worm or a snail, but found nothing and disappointed returned home.

I had the impression that Kim hadn't moved during all the time I had been away, because she still sat on the same place.

I saw her only moving in the morning when it was breakfast time. She doesn't care who feeds her, even a serial killer could do it.

The only one who really was happy that I was home again was Rosie. She purred and showed her affection by washing my nose, cheek, hands and everything which wasn't covered by the blanket. She is the only cat I ever knew who likes to lick people like a dog !

Love the thought of Kim and a serial killer :-)

Binga licks people like Rosie does. She is a little nutty.

Well Pookie,Kim,Arthur and Rosie don't become too settled and content. I'm sure Mrs G is already planning her next holiday.

Aw, how sad that your cats didn't miss you much. I would have missed them terribly! They are all unique and beautiful!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We had to smile at Mr G having to be Houdini to get to feed the parakeets.
Hope you enjoyed your holiday.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Looks like things got a little messy inside, but nice to see everyone settling back into their routine. The outdoors looks quite nice right now for Rosie and Arthur - we love September here, too.

Welcome home, Gattina! It does sound like Mr. G was very busy while you were away. Funny how the cats act as though they were not impressed that you've returned. But I am sure they are all happy, even though they act so casual.

LOL, well even if the cats are blasé , we're glad you're home again!
