This is what we do!
Stage One...she runs away from us.
Stage Two...nonstop meowing to at and all around us.
Stage Three...she finally allows us to brush, croon, pet and humble ourselves to her.
Stage Four...we play chase all though the house and we play with her favorite toys.
Stage Five...she collapses on my pillow and is quiet and snugly.
Whew...we are exhausted! But really happy to be home!
