We are home and all together again...Lucy survived...actually I should say I survived... she has gone through her five stages of forgiving us...and she is sound asleep in my arms.

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!


  1. Ahh...nothing beats being home. Welcome back. I'm glad you made it in safely. :-)

  2. I am happy that you all survived. :-)

  3. those stages! They are so familiar...from my days with cats.

    My son and daughter-in-law got back last night from their two weeks in Hawaii. I picked them up at the airport....they looked exhausted. A five hour flight.

    How long was yours?

    1. Ours was about 3 hours and 15 minutes...not bad but we landed in a thunderstorm!

    1. I am totally serious about them!

      You should hear her!

  5. Loved reading about the five stages...who watched Lucy while you were gone? (just curious)
