ANN'S REAL WELCOME HOME
the cats seem to be indifferent when just one of us is gone. w/one still around, the routines are still in place & they seem content. however, when the missing human returns they inevitably receive feline affection usually unseen during our everyday situation. merce is the one who leads in this respect. when i've been gone, the first few days after my return are filled w/her insisting on me holding her in my arms while i sit at the computer. it's something i couldn't FORCE her to do otherwise but for a few days, she's very affectionate.
here, merce is doing something she's NEVER done before. she's not really a lap-cat but ann's been gone for 10 days & that changes everything.
