Home Alone

No, not me -- Harley!

Saturday morning, I attempted to "pack up" the cats to bring them to Mom's for the week. With Harley, I have one chance to get her into the carrier, and then she's uncatchable for the rest of the day. She's a BIG, round cat, which makes it more difficult. Lately, she's been more cooperative, but Saturday morning, she slipped out of my hands and under the bed. If I really needed to, I could have chased her, and terrorized her, and eventually caught her, but it's really not worth it. She's such a scaredy cat, and I hate to make it worse. She also doesn't really mind being alone. A friend was coming by a couple times to pick up my mail anyway, so she's stopping in to check on Harley (who she won't actually see, of course). Dolly and I will return this weekend and we'll see if Harley even realized we were gone!

And I like Christmas!

Merry merry! And here's hoping that Harley doesn't have a big party while you're gone. ;)

You're preaching to the choir. I've done my share of cat wrastling in my day and can completley understand why you chose to leave her! Ha ha!

Merry Christmas!!!

Wise decision on the Harley-wrangling. I'm sure he'll be fine by himself in Iowa. He's a big boy and can take care of himself!

Merry Christmas!
