Boots, little T’s cat came to say “hi” this morning. This is the third time she’s done it in the couple of weeks. The first time she came by, she meowed by the window like she used to, as if she hasn’t been gone for months. Little T and my husband excitedly let her in. She meowed, but wouldn’t settle and demanded to be let out again, no amount of cajoling would let her stay. In spite protests from T, we had to let her out again.
The second time, she didn’t even bother to come in. Turned her little nose at the bowl of milk we left for her by our front door, as if to say “I’m just dropping by, not really staying”.
This morning, she walked in, strutted around and meowed and left again.
I’m hoping one of these days she’ll decide to stay again. I think to her we are now the “other” family, or her other home, but definitely not her “primary” home. I’m fine with that, it’s nice that she drops by once in a while and I know now that cats are like that. Who knows, she might suddenly decide to stay for good one of these days?
If you are familiar with cats, do you think she’ll decided to come home once and for all?
