Home again, home again

I got back yesterday from a trip to visit family for the holidays, during which time the kitties were cared for by a truly wonderful petsitter. She spent tons of time with the cats, playing with them (even Scarlett played!) and generally hanging out; it was a huge relief to leave them in such great hands!

These pictures are from the night I left on my trip. I had two suitcases open on the floor and a pile of clothes and Christmas presents on the bed, and Melly could not stay away. After being shooed off the bed and removed from the suitcases approximately six hundred times, Melly finally retreated.

"Can I come too?"

"I am ready to travel. Here I am, all ready."

Hurrah! You're home! We are suprised Melly only tried six hundred times, we would have put her down for an even one thousand!

that is so cute that Melly did that! What a blessing it is to have someone who will give good quality care and LOVE to our furbabies while we are away.

That takes a huge load off of our minds and you are truly blessed!

Happy New Year!

It is hard when they aren't allowed to travel with us... I was forced to leave for 6 weeks once on Govt business. I hated every day of it.
