My mom was in town for a visit last week, and as I mentioned, she is very allergic to cats to the point that she can't even touch them. Melly was utterly befuddled to meet a human immune to her constant demands for attention, and kept approaching my poor sneezy mother looking for affection. Scarlett, on the other hand, was overjoyed at having her personal space so well respected. Scarlett is normally not a fan of strangers, but she and my mom got along famously by the end of the week. Scarlett would approach my mom and nuzzle her toes; Mom would scratch Scarlett's chin with her foot. I have no pictures of this, so you'll have to take my word for the fact that it was utterly adorable.
My mom also couldn't resist taking pictures of the cats, especially Melly, who gamely posed and mugged for the camera.
All in all, it was a fun visit, and I think the cats enjoyed having my mom around. (This may be at least partially because she shared tiny bites of salmon and chicken with them.) I will say, though, that they are very happy to again have access to the bedroom! Scarlett has barely left her precious blue blanket since I brought my mom to the airport.
