Most people think that only dogs miss their owners when they are away, but in my experience cats do too, they just express it is a different way...otherwise no barking, jumping, or tail wagging upon return.
And although Miss Twiggley had wonderful caregivers while I was away I could tell she was delighted when I walked in the door. She has hardly left my side since I came back from my trip.
She sleeps at the foot of my bed and my first night back she kept getting up and lying next to me, purring. It was as if she was trying to say, "Please don't go away again I missed you!"
Well Miss Twiggley, although I had a very good time, I missed you too!
