Hey, I have been away for CD for quite a while. Not sure just how much I'm returning to the site yet but wanted to pop in and share a cat story for my cat peeps.

My magnificent Nimbus cat, was displeased, because I was out all night. (My son was home, he got fed, his routine was just disrupted as I wasn't there for him to lay on my feet and sleep that night.) So the next day when I got home, and went to my room, I discovered a surprise...

We have a cabinet in the kitchen, which Nimbus is able to open, full of plastic grocery bags. He had removed ALL OF THEM, and carried them down the hall and deposited them in my bedroom. The entire floor was a sea of white Walmart bags. It must have taken him all night.

He has never done this before, or since.

Aww, he must have really missed you and felt stressed out. Hopefully you won't have to leave him alone anymore.
...but it must have been funny to see!

I haven't a clue what his message might have been, but he did get your attention. At least he didn't leave a damp surprise in your shoe.

Glad to see you back btw. Was starting to think maybe you were abducted by aliens or something.

Many yers ago when I used to travel a lot for work my cats would inevitably leave a little smelly brown surprise on my bed when I left for more than an overnight. They definitely let their feelings be known!

What a little devil Nimbus is!

And that's why I keep my bedroom door shut when I'm not home.

Yep, cats have a funny way of letting us know they are not happy with something we have done .

Good to hear from you and Nimbus, the rascal.

SO taught Twostep how to open drawers. Nothing like a lingerie party in the living room when you come home with friends in tow.
