while mom's away, the cats will play
mom went away and left us with The Cousin for five whole days. she's never been gone that long before, but she said she went to somewhere called austin for somefing called south by southwest. she said she always goes, every year, but wasn't it good that we had The Cousin here to feed us and play with us. we missed mom, but we're not tellin' her that. 'stead we pretends we're mad at her for leavin' us here. bandit sez we've pretended long enough, but i sez we needs to keep at it for a few more days so she knows we mean business and doesn't go away again.
maybe we can be a little nice, though, cuz she came back sick again and now she can't sleep cuz she's coffin so much. mom says she feels so bad she'd almost rather be in a coffin than coffin, but we didn't get it. i guess we can be just a little nice, but just for a little bit.
