I've mentioned before that I love to travel. But I'm also a homebody, and of course, it's hard for me to be away from my furbabies for long.
In fact, as soon as we got to the hotel I was missing them.
I knew they were in good hands with Mom, but though I've left them for several days before, this is the first time that both Dave and I would be gone for more than one night. I was a little worried how they'd fare - especially Rupert and Peno, who wouldn't be thrilled with an interloper (Mom) coming into the house for an hour or two each day. I was also worried about Burton, who when I leave the house for an hour or more, scolds me like crazy when I get back in. And poor Relic wouldn't be able to go outside for four whole days.
Burton seemed to handle it best of four. He loved all over Mom and made her play fetch when she stopped in. She threatened several times to take him home with her as payment for cat-sitting.
Rupert was very weirded out when we came in. While he did come out for Mom, and even let her give him a pet once, he was definitely freaked by the rolling suitcases, and weird smells we brought home.
Mom said she never saw Peno and I'm not surprised. That's just how Peno rolls. She was hiding in the end table when we got home, but it was probably the sound of our suitcases that sent her there.
None of them seem worse for wear, though it's still hard for me to leave them for too long! It's probably harder on me than them!
And to thank Mom for stopping in everyday to take care of them, I picked her up a little something from Mexico.
