Me: Monster, your Daddy’s home!
Monster: Daddy, what Daddy. I have no Daddy. He left me! He didn’t even say good-bye!
It’s true. OH snuck out after breakfast earlier this week to work off-island hoping the cat would not notice but he did.
(By now Monster is yowling refusing to even glance at his purple-socked absentee parent)
Daisy (now watching slightly amazed at Monster’s behaviour): Go on, he’s over there.
Monster (to himself): I must appear aloof and not even interested. Oh, ok, I need to investigate this.
OH: Hello, Monster.
Monster: Hmmm, who are you? Do I know you? I probably don’t.
Not even three seconds later……
The biggest and loudest purrs ever.
Monster: Dammit, I can’t be cross with you for long!
The rest of us are now “chopped liver”. We were there when Monster had no one and now…… nothing.
Anywho, it is nice to have OH home, if only for a few days. The weather is deteriorating but once it settles down again, he will be off. No one tell the cat.
