We had a blast traveling around with Alice, André's mom, and to show her what life with cats is all about. Though we are not sure if she is going to adopt one herself, we sure hope she is considering it after her experience with us. I mean, who could resist. After the pleasure of spending time with us anybody just has to turn into a complete cat lover!
True, but Alice says she travels a lot and she does not have a fifth wheel like we do, so having a cat may be impossible for her. She surely would want to take him or her (or maybe she would get more than one in which case it would be "them") along but can you imagine a cat traveling on a bus or a big ship? And not traveling anymore because she wouldn't want to part with her cat seems not to be what she has in mind. At least not at the moment. So I guess we just have to wait and see how she is going to resolve this grave conflict of interest.
André and Sue also enjoyed the time with Alice. They took her to places they had been before and at times they were astonished, how things had changed since they have been there last time. Let's face it: they are getting old! Some of the places we're talking about, they have visited 20 years ago. We don't think many cats even get to live for 20 years and these guys are talking about past trips. Do you think we should be concerned about whom we will be living with in the future, Hunter? André and Sue are as old as Methuselah and who knows how much longer they will make it?
I wouldn't be too concerned, Trapper, they still look pretty fresh to me. But maybe we keep an eye on them, just in case. Meantime we will have to get Sue to get back to work. Boy this is getting harder and harder all the time. Since we have been traveling she seems to think she is retired or something. She is all play and fun but no writing blogs or updating the web site. This has to change - we have followers who expect to read about our adventures and we cannot let them down. Besides, I have heard that in humans being mentally active will keep them younger. So getting Sue back to work may just help with that age concern we have.
Good thinking, Hunter. We could also keep her busy by nagging her for more walks outside, more treats and more attention in general. At least we don't have to worry about André. Sue is keeping him on his toes plenty.
So you see, we have our work cut out for us. Keep your fingers crossed for us and maybe send some requests for our blog. This would help in keeping Sue writing it.
See you around
