Happy to be home

I spoke with the caregiver to ask how the two cats were doing. It seems that one of the cats which is more timid (and which was sitting by itself in a corner on a shelf away from the other cats) immediately ran for a more covered location. The other cat looked unsure where it was for a few minutes, but the caregiver sat with the cat for more than half an hour. As the cat looked around and it realised it was home, the caregiver said the cat became happier and happier. She said it meowed and looked very contented to be home.

After 6 unhappy, sickness-ravaged and stressed-up months away from home (hiding from the Hideous Devil Banishment), our home cats were snucked back when we felt the coast was clear. Our whole brood went through the same... even though we were worried about stressing them and packed them all in a room for acclimatisation and ease them back into home-living. By the end of the second day they were continuously sneaking out of the room. By the end of a week, we knew all of them don't need the acclimatising, and from their behaviour and choice of perches, they obviously remembered home despite the long absence - it's like they've never left. Who says cats are aloof, that they don't care for familiarity? They can be as emotive as dogs, in cat terms of course.
