I’ve been traveling a lot this year. Too much really as I’m not quite sure where I am when I wake up! Although my husband is a good caretaker when I’m gone there’s nothing like “Mom”so obviously when I get home there is some level of neediness by the Four for a few days. Juniper Hoot has been especially needy and was kind of driving me nuts while I was trying to catch up work. Have you experienced this? How did you handle it? Without thinking I whipped a bath mat up onto my work table from a sleeping area nearby (Costco box cat cave) and voila! Instant happy cat, happy Mom and happy job since the work is getting done. Simple catification in action!
