Silence is back in the house. We came back from dinner and she came up to us meowing up a storm. We gave her some food and water outside to try to see if she'd stick around. Then my wife opened up the door and Silence came right inside. She's eaten and gotten scritches and seems to have settled down. We'll see how it goes if she ends up being an inside/outside kitty.

ETA: The last few days have been very cold for Arizona, that may be why she came back so suddenly.

She didn't lecture you on the weather!? That's just not fair. Immy is an indoor only kitty and boy, did I get a lecture on how cold my apartment is (-40, in her eyes), the coldness of the glass when she's on the window sill looking out and why don't I have one of those thick down comforters for her to sink into.

Dear Marmalade,

Why do your meows sound like you're asking a question? Are you a curious kitty? Do you always want to know whyyyyyYYYY?

Sincerely,
TGG

PS It's absolutely adorable. His little meows go up in pitch at the end and sound very inquisitive.

Doodle's vocalizations are tiny, high-pitched, chirpy, and short. This has gotten even cuter since he has grown so big (est. 11 pounds at 8 months).

Dear Roxy,

I know you are a fierce and might huntress to whom respect, laud, and honor must be paid. Any rodent brazen enough to be in your presence, will face the consequences. As such, I can even understand why you might opt to play cat and mouse with them to drive the point home. But playing with the mouse’s corpse? What the hell?!

And yes, because I do see everything through the lens of pop culture and a third of my brain is filled with Simpsons quotes, I did find a clip on YouTube that your actions made me remember.

I better not hear any Ree Ree Ree the next time you decide to lie on my built-in kitty shelf.

Fearfully,

Your Upright Thumbbeast

Actually pretty normal cat behavior, if the cat's not hungry enough to eat it right off.

Not all cats do it, of course. (They're cats.) But a lot of them will.

Dear Sasha--
I'm glad to hear that you're starting to feel better! Sending get-well vibes from the House of Dawn.

Dear Roxy-kitty,

Every time I sit down with a somewhat pensive look about me, you show up wanting to perch on my kitty shelf. Are you worried that I might put two and two together and realize you’re plotting to kill me? Don’t worry! Like I told Minnie I’ve more or less made peace with that fact. In any case, I know you won’t actually go through with it, because then the game’s over: no more trolling the heck out of your humans.

Love,

Your Beloved (and whipped) Thumbbeast

Dear Immy,

I am sorry that I can not fall asleep immediately in bed and that my moving around means you can't just curl up with me and sleep. I'm not a cat, kitty.

your human

Thanks TL. This is first time my supervisor (E) has gone through this. Poor Sasha had sudden onset kidney failure. Just came out of nowhere.
You know as well as I do that this someone you never get used to. Plus she has to explain this to her 2 year old daughter.

DawnStorm, is it possible that Sasha got into something poisonous?

-- I ask mostly because, if so, making sure that whatever it was isn't accessible to other creatures would be a good idea.
