“Batching It” with Dad
A couple of days ago Mommy pulled out her Rectangular Box With Zippers and started throwing clothes inside. She talked to us about how she would miss us and would be back soon. She said she was visiting our gramma and grampa in Pennsylvanicat for grampa’s birthday and Russian Christmas which sounded like fun, but she said we couldn’t go along.
Mommy took the Rectangular Box With Zippers out the front door. I tried to go out the door when she did, but she pushed me back inside, said “bye, bye” and then closed the door. I was very sad about this until Meerkat started chasing me and then I forgot all about it.
Daddy came home a little later in the day and was happy to see us. I wasn’t sure he knew Mommy had packed up her Rectangular Box With Zippers, but then he said we have a “swinging bachelor pad”, and that we would be “batching it” with him for the night until Mommy came back.
Daddy made us a special dish of Stinky Goodness and then I fell asleep on Mommy’s chair in the eating room.
I don’t know how long I sleeped, but when I woke up, all the lights were off and the door to Mommy and Daddy’s sleeping room was closed. I heard Daddy snoring and I tried scratching the door to get in, but he didn’t open the door.
It wasn’t much of a “swinging bachelor pad” if you ask me.
The next morning Mommy wasn’t around, but Daddy fed us like usual and snuggled us. Then we went to sleep. Mommy came in the door later in the day. Yay! She came back! She had the Rectangular Box With Zippers, plus some other boxes and she hugged us and petted us and snuggled us and said how happy she was to see us and that she “missed us so much”.
So naturally we have been following Mommy around to make sure she doesn’t make another such disappearance. She and Daddy have gone to “work” but they come home together, so that is OK. Mommy explained that they have to visit a place called “work” so that they have green papers to trade at the store for our stinky goodness.
But we have been hot on her trail while she is at home…
