Home at last

It's so good to be home. We love the mountain house, but we love home too. The trip home went better. I, as usual, was really good. I talked and complained a bit early on, but settled into my seat between Mom and Dad, and just had a conversation every so often, you know, to ask if we were there yet. Poor Kavan clearly gets car sick. It might be because of the ear infection and ruptured ear drum he had as a young kitten. Anyway, he slept most of the way on Mom's lap, but did make a trip to the BIGGER litter box ON THE BACK SEAT, to yack and poop at least once. But at least he didn't make a mess this time. I felt so sorry for him I licked his head a few times. Then I felt like grooming Mom, and licked her eye lid. I'm sure she liked that.

When we got home, I crashed upstairs on my balcony in my Millie bed, and Kavan crashed in front of the fire place. I over heard Mom and Dad at dinner time:

Dad: So much for big man cat, I know how to put him in his place

Mom: Poor thing, it certainly knocks him out

Dad: Yeah, must be hard on his ego

Mom: Ego? Do man cats really have an ego?

Dad: Are you kidding? You think all that strut is for nothing?

Mom: And then he had to put up with Tara feeling sorry for him and licking his head

Dad: Maybe he will feel a bit wimpy for a while and be nice to Tara

Mom: Don't count on it

PS: Don't worry Pepi, Mom closed the screen after she took this picture.

It is very mancatly for a mancat to admit to his weaknesses. I am sure Kavan is growing into the very epitome of a mancat.

I am glad you are all back home safe and sound! Have a good rest.

Kavan, don't feel bad buddy. I cannot ride in the metal monster wifout being in the big PTU wif Sammy. If i'm not wif him, then I yak, and pee and poot alot. Mommy thinks that I might need a sedative to travel. - Miles

Oh yes, meezer-man cats have serious egos! They hate to feel out of control and they can't just relax. I'm glad you're such a good girl Tara.

Welcome home! Car trips can be rough. Don't worry about your Man Cat image, Guy poops in the car everytime!

Kavan does look comfy in front of the fire. We are glad you are back home!

Daisy said...

I am glad the trip home was smoother than the drive up there. Poor Kavan!

I think it would be neat if My Lady would take me on a trip with her. She says that not many places let cats, though. I wish we had a mountain house. :(.

Phoebe said...

I'm glad that you are home, Tara. Riding in cars is very boring and scary.

Artsy Catsy said...

Kavan, it's okay to yak and poop when the humans put you in the car thing. I'd yak & poop too when my mom puts me in the Jeep ... if I weren't so busy getting flat & trembly trying to squish down in the seat and disappear!
