Felines Feel It!

Poor Socks! She knows something's up. Cats always do. You have to get up pretty early in the morning to sneak something by them. They notice if even one piece of furniture is just a little out of place . Felines feel change and they don't like it!

Socks knows we are going away as soon as she sees the suitcases come down from the attic. I just had to take this shot of her in her usual protest position! I guess she figures if she fills the suitcase, (and she just about does!) then I can't possibly pack my things and I'll have to cancel the trip!

Sorry sweetie, we're really going on this much needed vacation - no cats allowed. You'll be fine! The massage therapist is coming every day to feed you and give you attention. What better person could you ask for to pet you with those magic hands?!

See you all on Aug. 21st!

Mother of Invention, trying to avoid Socks' large mournful eyes!

What lovely pics and post the last days! I have red them all and love to hear about it. Thanks for the poem and for showing us your Place In The Universe. It's very much like a typical Norwegian cottage. I'll try to take some simular pics and post for you one day.
Have a lovely, relaxing, joyfull and happy vacation and welcome back 21st!

Its been a little while, Mother of Invention. Just stopped by to say hello.

My dog does the same thing...absolutely goes into canine canipshits when he sees a box or a suitcase. And forget about it if I wake up in a mood to rearrange the living room. Doggy Depression.

Enjoy your vacation. Take lots of pictures (and naps).

Have a most marvelous time! And don't worry, Socks will be ready and waiting with a large helping of recrimination and kitty-guilt upon your return.

It's what kitties do best.

Eatapeach: Thanks for the visit! Long time "NO SEE" for sure. I love your expression, "Canine Canipshits"! I will enjoy!
Hope things are "PEACHY" with you!

Diana: Thansk, I will! I'm sure Socks will give us the usual cold detached shoulder and then follow us around, getting underfoot for the next few days after we return!
They are such masters of their art!

You're right about animals sensing what's to come. Our dogs know the minute we start packing. But they are definitely too big to fit in a suitcase! Have fun and take lots of pictures on your trip.

Barbara: Yes, thanks, I definitely will!

How cute! They really do try to give the guilt trip when you leave huh? I like how Socks is saying, "See, I fit! Take me with!"

Try that with 6 cats and 2 dogs. I got to the point where I would pack at the last minute, hide the luggage and take it out when they were outside. Also, it's a good week end for meteors.

Old Lady: Wow! You have to get up REALLY early and avoid all those big pleading eyes! Thanks for the tip on's a great place to watch..down by the lake where the stars hang so low you cab touch them! There's still time for you to come! (Maybe if you do Astral Projection!)

May you have good weather, a great view of the meteors, lots of fish in the boat, an overall wonderful time and safe travel to and fro'.

Thanks for the link, by the way, I am posting one back now. Looking forward to more visits.


Wondering...was Socks thinking of how much fun it was going to be inviting all the guests for the kitty party while you're gone? :-) Influenced by commercials for kitty litter; this is bad craziness!!

Ha! I just pulled out my suitcases this evening ... and Maggie the cat has been sleeping in it for hours. Otto the cat is sleeping on my purse (to keep me home, of course). Anyone who says cats and dogs don't have personalities or souls .......

Kilroy_60: Thanks...we did have a great trip and safe it was too. Don't think there were too many kitty parties...well, at least they had them outside so I never saw the mess...empties, junk food wrappers etc.!

Beth: Funny! You must have either a tiny cat or a HUGE purse!

I have almost the same picture of Pookie laying in my suitcase before my trip but then also after when it was empty again ! Of course they feel it. I have a new post about kitten Rosie(look on my cat blog) and all the four are very upset about that ! I hope it will go better with the time !
