I took a day trip and the cat is freaking out.

Occasionally, I will leave my cat at home if I have an overnight visit to do. This usually entails him being alone for about 24 hours or less. When I leave for these overnight trips, I make sure he has two days worth of food; that there are no breakables out for him to destroy while he is shadow/light/bug chasing; and that he has a full water container (he has a self-dispensing water container). However, on Monday I took a extended day trip to San Juan Bautista and Monterey Bay. This meant I was gone from 7:30am on Mon until 9:30pm tonight (Tues) when I came home. This is the first time in a year that Shmengie & I have been apart for over 36 hrs. HE WAS PISSEDCITED WHEN I GOT HOME. Meaning: he was so angry I was gone, yet overjoyed that I was home, that he has been behaving erratically (but totally adorably) since I got home. Biting me; running around the house at breakneck speed; sitting in my lap for no good reason; wanting to climb up inside my shirt and curl up there like he used to do when he was a kitten; staring at me and yelling at me without moving whatsoever; looking out from behind a wall to make sure I was still there; rubbing his face meticulously inside my shoes that I took off when I got home…he’s so awesome and adorable and weird and funny. I’m glad he’s my cat friend.

"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."

AMEN.
