Separation Anxiety

I'm visiting my family on Cape Cod and boy do I miss the little guys.

These photos were taken a short while ago. They have both grown so much in a month.

I love this series of them hanging out in my lazy girl chair. Harper looks like such a guy doesn't he? Like he should have a beer in one hand. These photos show their personalities. See how Ramona is kind of the straight man to Harper's funny guy cattitude? She has more dignity. And more poise. We call her Tiny Dancer. I am still trying to get that photo of her "ballet stretch."

Is it funny that the hardest thing to do when you are going away is leave your cat? I guess we know the people will be fine, and we can talk to them. I do wish I could talk to my cats. I am probably not the only one (I know I am not the only one) who calls home to talk to their animals.

Olof is taking good care of them. He has a list of exactly what, how much and when everyone eats and when to change the kitty litter.

But will Harper forget me in four days? Oh the suspense.

I'm going to help my sister silkscreen T shirts today in the back yard. It is nice and sunny out with a blue sky here in vacation paradise. Vacation paradise is my ancestral stomping grounds. I'll try to get over to the beach for a break and maybe post some photos later.

Don'’t miss the continuing torch relay at The Cat Olympics

Cape Cod in June - wonderful! Have a great time. and yes, I call home to talk to the cats too - on the answering machine. I'm hopeless.

When I travel for work, My Wife will put the cats on the phone for me. Magoo will snorfle and foof into the phone and I can hear him purr. Dolce will purr but also let out a cry as she does not like to stay in one spot for very long. Smudge and Bella have such soft gentle purrs that they usually can't be heard.
