So, we had to go to St. Louis to check on my mom. She had open heart surgery and then was having trouble coming off the ventilator. They inserted a trach and feeding tube and she has now been moved to long term acute care - where they basically work on weaning her off of the tubes.
While we were gone, we had a cat/house sitter stay with the kitties. I was worried about our stray because he just comes and sits at the walkway waiting for me to walk out and feed him. We arrived home late Wednesday and a couple of hours later, I saw him walking up from the woods behind our house. I had been making good progress with him, he actually sniffed at my hand. But now, I am afraid we are back to him staying a few feet away. I guess I'll have to build our teeny tiny relationship back up again!
Coco and Patchouli were both so needy when we got back home. They don't run up all excited like doggies do, but they do hang a little bit closer. Coco, particularly, had lots to say about us being gone!
