Catsitting, Part 2

August 23rd, 2006, 02:23 PM
You might remember my brother's problems catsitting our parents' cat, Phantom . . . He didn't visit them often enough for Phantom to recognize him, so first she hid from him and wouldn't go out, then she went out and wouldn't come in or eat.

Well, my folks are on vacation again (lucky retired people!) and this time I'm catsitting Phantom and my brother is catsitting my cats, who don't mind strangers. :cat: :cat:

This time around Phantom is an absolute angel. :angel: She waits by the door in the morning to go out, lets me pet her after I get home from work, and comes in at night with no fuss. She purrs when I pet her, eats a bowl of kitty food every evening, and graciously accepts kitty treats whenever she comes in the house.

I'm so relieved, I was afraid we were both going to be miserable for two weeks! :cat:

It took until I got back home, but I finally have pictures of Phantom! :D

Hmmm, is this grass worthy to be eaten?

Phantom doesn't need a bell when she has her license tag, her address tag, and her rabies tag to keep her company. :rolleyes:

She contemplates her next move . . . :D

Sadly, after arriving home Saturday, my parents are gone AGAIN as of Monday morning because my dad's sister died and they've headed to Minnesota for the funeral. :(
