My husband and I headed out today to run many errands. I took The Basset along with us because he needs excitement in his life. When we returned five hours later, Bobbles made it quite clear she didn't appreciate being left alone. She wailed on the stairs. We all gathered at the landing looking up to her. Even The Basset. We called her. She came halfway, threw herself down on a stair and put her belly in the air. She wouldn't come to us. When we went to her, she ran off. All night long she has pranced herself in front of us only to play hard to get. She's making us pay dearly for taking The Basset with us!

Deep down I'm happy to learn that The Basset means so much to her.

Heh. A real drama queen in the making!

However it did occur to me that she may be going into heat.

I can tell when she's in heat. She was mad at us for leaving her alone. There's usually someone home. If hubby and I go out together, The Basset is always here with her. I believe it was her very first time being left completely alone in the house. The only other times are when we're all in the yard with The Basset. She stands on her back feet looking out the storm door window b*tching at us.

Oh I didn't realize she'd already started her cycles. Anyway, some cats are like that, sulking or teasing after they have been left alone for a period of time they deem too long. Lucky you, to have one of them! Bobbles is such a special little girl.

A drama queen indeed! LOL She'll forgive you once she gets hungry.

The first time the spouse and I left his elderly cat alone in our new house, he howled at us for hours upon returning. He'd been left alone before plenty of times at the old apartment, but never reacted like that. I'm sure he wasn't too pleased that we just laughed at him, either ...

With our new cats, the first time I went away alone, leaving the spouse behind, Checkers thought I'd abandoned him and refused to allow me to pet him for about a week after I returned.

At this moment -- after I returned from a week away about four hours ago -- he's draped over my left arm. They don't like it when I go away, but they do get over it.
