Last night when mum got home it was very quiet. This is the front of her room, where the painting and building is being done. She looked all round the inside of the house, and was out in the garden calling and calling me. Normally I run to greet her when she gets home, but as the painters are noisy, I have been hiding.
She went down the stairs in the front of our little place, as I normally hide out there. At 7pm - two hours after she got home, mum went up the stairs and called and called and finally I answered. I had found myself stuck over the stairs at the house opposite us, this little villa you can see through the window. Mum was so pleased to see me, and I snuggled with her all night.
Tonight when she got home I was in my usual spot on her bed, so mum was pleased.
Because I am an inside/outside cat I have my own little hidey holes outside, but I am a good girl and always come home and stay inside 90% of the time close by my mum. Mum did consider putting me in the cattery, but I am always a bit miserable when that happens. The other choice was to lock me in mums bedroom with a litter box, but it is real noisy in the house and hot too, so mum is not sure that I would like that either.
So - she will consider how I cope on today and Monday and make a decision at the beginning of next week.
