Mom's off to Honolulu, leaving at O-dark thirty with her mom, aunt and uncle. I can't believe she is leaving me with Kavan and Dad for an entire week! And she decided not to enter us in Skeezix's Halloween costume contest, even though I have a great costume! She said it was because she wouldn't be around to help me vote, so it wasn't fair. I think she was just too lazy.
Don't forget about me, I probably won't be visiting much while she is gone.
Meezer Rule: If Mom leaves for an extended period, when she returns, withhold all rubs, purrs and head butts until you get your expected mother-load of presents. Then act like "Of course these are for me", and walk away in a huff. Only later break down and get those week's worth of pets that you really wanted.
