my cat misses me when i'm gone
Recent photo of Missi Nutmeg Cox Giguere enjoying some fresh air on our safe balcony. She was well cared for in my absence this week, but has been companionably close by ever since I returned home.
It's hard to imagine a better pet than a cat. I've never found them to be nearly as aloof as advertised, and when they are raised with affection, become extremely social and devoted in return.
Years ago someone told me that squeezing your eyes shut to a cat is a way of saying you care, and they eventually begin squeezing their eyes shut in response. I've always appreciated being able to show my fondness for my cat this way.
