Happenings when Mom Linda is Away


Most of you know that Mom L went off to BlogPaws Conference this past week. Thankfully our Dad Peter had the good sense to stay with me and TKS. We needed at least one of our humans to help us get back to normal after the “Storm” passed!

And those fun little bipeds just kept on having a great time even after they left TKS and me.

Sadly, even Mom L apparently had a fantastically good time without me as well—boo hoo for me. She went all crazy pants and I am thinking that Miss Kate, from Hauspanther, may have had somethin’ to do about Mom L going to the “wild side”!!

Not to be shown up, TKS and I had our own little “special moments” while Mom L was off. And a couple of times I kind of showed off how confident I was feeling EVEN with Mom L gone!

Ok she was here first, but I got the most shade!

Then I asked Dad P if I could have my dinner with my best pal ever—Nanuk!

I mean heck, Dad P and Mom L are always eating their dinner in front of that TV, so why shouldn’t I get to have mine with Nanuk, right??

In the end, I got my sun puddle back all to myself. I earned this home and I am claiming it as mine. Of course I will share with TKS, but this isn’t “just” my castle—this is the place of my heart and my trust.

I would really appreciate learning what all of you do when your favorite cuddle human goes away—if you feel like sharing, just leave a comment. Paw pats for any and all.

And, be sure to stick around my blog for a few days because there is going to be more #BlogPaws photos and of course, a  GIVEAWAY of a complete swag bag from #BlogPaws16!!

  1. Linda, I love the photo with Kate. I think all of us made certain we got one of those. I certainly missed spending time together at BP. Sure hope you’ll come east next year to Myrtle Beach. I am trying to get caught up since getting home but not doing a very good job of it. Fiona has been velcro cat since our return. She spent almost all of yesterday in my lap and is there now and has been for several hours. Any news on the house? Sending lots of love and hugs, Janet

    The most beautiful words that can be spoken by a cat ❤

    We are glad Mom Linda had fun at BlogPaws, and that you did so well even while she was away, Savvy. When our mom and dad go away, we hang out in their bedroom a lot. Hugs! – Gracie and Zoe

  5. That looks like a fun trip for the Mom L and I know Dad wants to go when he is off the working wheel. I would enjoy those verticals to the max but the family would swing on them till gone MOL

    We generally hang out together unless someone has stolen that last bite of chicken on a dish!

  9. It was so wonderful meeting your mom! We have great things planned together… Or at least we will.

  10. Your mom seems to have had a grand time away from you. Thank heavens your dad stayed with you.

    It’s hard when your staff leaves town. But when they dress up as a cat, words fail me….

    We do our best to get Dad to do whatever we want – and it usually works:) We hope it works well for you too:)

  14. I love our vertical blinds but TW gets mad when I start banging them around. She says I’m breaking them. When TW goes away, Pop sleeps in her bed so I can keep to my routine on my pillowtop mattress.

  15. Hmmm your vertical blinds look way more fun than my horizontal. I think I just got a blind crush. My peeps left for many weeks when things were bad at home, but I do get the run of the Palace 101% of the time so only really missed peep at bedtime to warm the wool duvet. purrs ERin

    Mumsy is never away for more than two or three hours she is too old to go much. I sleep while she is away. Sweet Savvy we think it is great that you got to eat with Nanuk. Chancy takes some of his buddies to eat with him all the time, company while we eat is nice. Hugs and nose kisses, Mumsy, Pooh and Chancy

  17. S & S……when de food servizz gurlz at werk; itz partee central heer in de land
    oh trout…we haz even hired a look out ta ring de fone when herz drivin down de street… sew everee one can ezcape !!! lookin for werd ta lurnin bout all de fun mom L had a blogpaws !! 🙂 ♥♥♥

  18. They all had a great time at BlogPaws, I’m sure, but they also missed the kitties a lot. I just know it.

  19. What do my kitties do when their favorite human goes away, they come to me! MOL Seriously though, Cashmere is a daddy’s girl but when he goes to work, she comes to me for a cuddle. They’re all lucky that I don’t go out very often so they don’t have to worry about it! hee hee

  20. It looks like you had a great time while your mom was out whooping it up with our mom at BlogPaws, Savvy.

  21. Good for you making the best of things, S. Mom only left me once in my life when she had to have knee surgery. I stayed with my best doggie friend Lyla and her mom. I was sad, but I stayed brave.

    Love and licks,

  22. I know you were happy to have Mom back home especially if she brought a lot of swag back for you and TKS! If Mom is not home, I have my Dad but he’s nowhere near as cuddly as Mom is!

    Hugs, Sammy

  23. Honestly, I am fine when my human is off doing something else – I either have her boyfriend to hang around, or the pet sitter – or at the Cat Writers awards banquet at BlogPaws, she left me with her friend Christine of Riverfront Cats while she got her dinner, and I had fun with her!

    BTW, my human really enjoyed seeing your human at BlogPaws and I did too!

    • Well Summer, not all of use cats are cool with having dresses and harnesses on us yeah know? MOL Mom L had such a fun time capturing some photo shoots you and your human were doing. I will post some “bloopers” soon

  24. I like your mom’s cat lady photo!!! and Dinner with a BFF like Nanuk is the best :o)

  25. I usually just hang out in our bedroom or wif Crockett.

  26. Kessy just comes out for the cat sitter. But FunTom goes into hiding and is not seen after the first evening – when I return he is still of a meek disposition and is clearly stressed. That is why I only stay away when I REALLY must.

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
