I drove straight to work from Brenton’s feeling guilty all the way because there is a train that runs straight there. I really do have an extensive and varied list of valid excuses though. One of them is that the name of my car is Iggybella. ^_^
I was meant to cancel my po box 605 but didn’t. I just can’t stand the idea of someone else using it. It’s been mine for nearly ten years! That’s the longest relationship I’ve ever had!
When I get home Guppy jumps out the window and comes down to the street to meet me. As she runs down, and then waits at the end of the driveway for me, she mews and mews. I realised the other day that it’s the mew that baby kittens use to call for their motherkit. (Aw, baby GupGup <3 )
Cats have lots of different meows to communicate different things. I know they generally use meows to communicate to their mother (and that domestic cats have extended mother to humans), but I think they can be broken down further. All cat-owners know the sinister meow cats make when they’ve caught a prey and are announcing it, or the demanding meow they make when you are preparing their food and they are insisting you’re not moving fast enough.
When Guppy hears my car coming up the street and runs out to meet me, and when she comes into the house from outside and wants to know where I am, she emits a series of “I need you!” mews that are very loud, short, high pitched and insistent.. and she doesn’t stop till she finds me. They sound so desperate that it makes me worry about what happens when she can’t find me.
I think she is much more insecure, needy and dependent on me since Munchy has gone. She is always right near me now. It’s cute, but a bit sad.
