But all is ok. I have a great house sitter that will be taking good care of them. She knows all about their favourite grand chase of the fishing line feather toy and how Skye likes to be brushed (which makes her crawl on her side along the carpet LOL). And how Lake is a little skittish and prefers to watch from the sidelines.
She knows about the fancy dancy cat water fountain that they are now officially addicted to and how important it is that the water is ‘cold’ and ‘fresh’.
And how slightly topped food is like a brand new feast in their eyes.
And how spotless those two litter boxes stay. I have them upstairs in my hallway (of all things) so I stay on top of it!
My son says to me everyday, “Why don’t you put the litter boxes downstairs?! They scratch in there at night!”
My reply? “I’d never keep them this clean. They like it like this….”
Trust me. Those boxes are crystal clean. I’ve taken a hobby approach to them. You know those zen sand boxes with mini rakes?
WEEEELLLL…. I make sure the litter is perfectly flat when I’m done. Very cat zen-ish. Just because.
😀 <—- You are losing it woman!
Oh my GOSH. I just googled cat zen. It’s a THING!
Made on Grumpy Cat Generator… because I’m going on a trip and I have time for such things…
Oh goodness… I spoil them so. Because they spoil me right back.
So to show my appreciation, my house/cat sitter is getting some surprise treats each day she hangs out with them.
And her instructions will be, she must indulge in the presence of the cats. Of course!
I know I’m fretting for nothing. These two do well in my absence. Probably a little too fine. They never pine by the door upon my return (in fact I have to beg for their attention!). And truly enjoy hanging out on their cat tree in front of the picture window or in my sun filled photo studio downstairs. That gives me comfort for sure.
I even put a big puffy new blanket in the photo studio tonight and they disappeared for a good long while. I doubt if I’ll even see Lake come up for the night.
Hmm…. maybe I’ll plant a few more surprises for them to find to keep them occupied along with some favourite toys. I like it! Treats for the cats too!
And thank goodness for that!
Treat bags for one sweet cat sitter… sounds like a party to me.
No staying up too late in my absence now, ya hear?!
