Does your furbaby get all stressed when you are packing?
Posted 13 July 2012 - 12:28 AM
when i am actually loading in/out, he would sit at the top of the stairs and GLARE at me and as SOON as i made eye contact, he would turn his back to me
he was a spoiled baby but i loved him so (and miss him terribly )
my ophelia currently is expressing her disdain that i am adding to the pile in the living room by being very clingy and following me everywhere i go in the house
and this weekend, when i am actually packing my clothes bag, she will jump right in...repeatedly...and i will have to use a lint brush on my clothes before i even get to wear them!
she is not a very vocal cat but when i get home, she meowmeowmeows at me for hours
i beg my mom to come over and play with her while i am gone so she isnt lonely
and i hide her treats all over the house, hoping she finds them over the few days i am gone - but i am pretty sure she sniffs them all out before i am out of the state
and then pukes on the rug
((furbabies who miss us))
what does your furbaby do when they see you packing?

He doesn't like it when I tie my shoes, or loves it I can't tell. Either way it involves scratching and bloodshed.

Our younger cat, Boo will get all up in your stuff, but she is also less than a year and is still super playful. She is somewhat hip to the suitcase thing when you are packing and what it means, but still doesn't realize when you actually leave with it that you aren't coming back for a few days.... Of course when you return that is another story MEOW!!! You are expected to play immediately and for a lengthy period of time upon your return
Our old cat Delia (RIP) used to raise quite the racket when we returned from a trip! Talk about vocal! She would scream and yell for a few minutes then give you all the luvins' that old body could muster up She'd park herself on your chest and set up camp for as long as you would let her
We have a super realiable cat sitter who comes 2x a day when we're out of town to feed, medicate and play with the kittes

When she sees that her bowls and bed are being packed up, which is confirmation that she *is* joining us, she does this joyful interpretive dance of happy-doggy fireworks.
When she sees that it is one of the rare instances where she's gonna have to camp it at home with a friend, well... There is no joy in Schnauville.
It's tough to leave that little munchkin behind - she's a great travelling companion, and so easy to have around whenever we land somewhere. Still, there are situations that just aren't dog friendly where she's better off chilling at home with a human buddy. I'd never want to bring her to a fest for instance, I just don't see that sort of environment as being much fun for her.
