Mom dragged the vacuum monster out of the closet THIS MORNING – Say what? Huh? A day early? What’s THAT all about? I had sudden visions of her and Dad deserting me and wanting to get the house cleaned before the desertion. Sniff Sniff
But that wasn’t what was going on – I was soon to figure THAT out but not until AFTER the vacuum had done its’ duty and the dust had flown in all directions and my Thursday morning PEACE AND QUIET had been destroyed.
What was going on was that Mom was preparing to desert me – JUST MOM – and only for one night but that is like eternity to a cat who is Mom’s little boy! Mom leaves first thing in the morning to go visit her sister and sister-in-law for something called “GIRLS GETAWAY”……….that’s right…….girls only – no husbands allowed meaning I’m
stuck staying with Dad.
“Not so bad Sammy” I can hear you say…………..well, that depends on if you’re YOU or you’re ME……if you’re ME you’re thinking “what about my 3AM wake-up time?” and “what about my warm lap naps?” and “who will brush me and talk to me and spoil me in the style to which I’ve become accustomed for almost sixteen years?”……..because that is NOT my Dad – trust me. He loves me and I love him but he’s not Mom (eeeeek!).
SO, I’m sucking it up – being brave (sorta) and today I’m spending following Mom around like we’re attached by a rope – because I’m going to get all the MOM VIBES I can today so they’ll carry me through until Saturday when she gets home.
Am I being a BIG WIENIE? Oh of course I am…………..but then again you already KNOW me and you KNOW how I feel about my Mom. Will I whine a lot until she comes home? YOU BETCHA!
