Well hello again. Yes, my irresponsible Human returned last night after abandoning me to the capricious care of the neighbors.
I did have plenty of time to catch up on my personal grooming, although hard as I tried, I could not come up with (heh heh) a nice hairball to welcome her home.
The most important thing that happened was that I evidently took leave of my senses and allowed one of the neighbor ladies to TOUCH me. She walked over to my little round bed and I guess I was drowsy, and before I could even react, she was STROKING my fur!!! And I was liking it!
The Human says the earth must have tilted on its axis.
