As the Cat’s been gone on her Grand Adventure, we’ve kept in touch with frequent video calls in the evening. Sometimes, I don’t feel like wearing my headphones, so her voice comes over the speakers. That means the menagerie can hear her. When that happens, they ALL come in to the room to see.
After a bit of snorfling around, Udo realized that he wasn’t going to find her hiding under my chair. He couldn’t find her in the cabinets. Seeing her on the screen didn’t really compute, so he just laid down to hear her voice and look at me forlornly.
It broke my heart a little that he doesn’t understand language fully, because I told him a hundred times: “She’s coming home tomorrow, buddy!”
If I have to drive out to LA and get her myself, she’s coming home tomorrow.
