Pearl: For today's selfie I am showing my annoyed face. How do you think I did? Do you think I looked properly annoyed?
The cause of this annoyed face leads me to the sixth purrl of wisdom to add to my lesson plans - Ignore your human after they leave you for a few days.
Our mama had to go out of town for work and then stayed in Atlanta for the weekend to go to a wedding. Our neighbor took care of us while she was gone. She's really nice, but it is always essential to show your displeasure to your human about being left. When the mama gets home, I always come out to let her know I know she is home. Then I ignore her a for a least several hours. The exact time is proportional to how long she has been gone. When I do come back out I always give mama the look of annoyance and disapproval.
Jaq on the other hand, only ignores the mama for about two seconds. Then he is all like "I missed you so much, Mama. I love you, I love you! It is Sunday, Mama. Can you help me take my selfie?"
Gus isn't quite as forgiving as Jaq nor does he hold a grudge as long as I do. He has to smell the mama, then smells her suitcase, and then smells the mama again. Finally, he forgives the mama and lets her pet him.
Today though, while smelling mama's hand, Gus noticed that it looked a little different.
It had these brown swirlies on it. Mama called it mehndi. She had it done Friday night before the wedding. The mehndi didn't smell or taste different (Gus licked it) than Mama usually smells or tastes.
Mama's friend that got married is originally from India. Mama had never been to a Hindu wedding before. I decided to forgive mama for leaving me just so I could hear more about the wedding. It sounded so cool and mama got to wear this beautiful saree.
Doesn't the mama look gorgeous? Normally, I wouldn't forgive her this quickly but what can I say? I'm a girl cat that loves weddings!
