Pearl's Purrl of Wisdom #6 - Ignore your human after they leave you for an extended period of time

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?"
Jaq is sooooooo annoying!

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!

  1. Allie: Well...the Fashionable Feline always sniffs out a good fashion tip, so I can totally see where you would forgive her a bit early - you know, for THAT reason.

  2. pawesome selfies!!! And...I sooo agree with Maxwell Faraday above!

  3. Thanks for the purrlz of Wizdom.. Moms need to be told to not be goned sooo long! Still you should forgive your mom eventually... especially if she is wearing a beautiful saree... Purrz from Joey who am furry wise about that.

  4. What a beautiful sari your mom is wearing. I think it's okay to forgive her. My cats usually ignore me after I come home from a long trip, but this time, my one cat Calvin came running to greet me when he heard my voice. It was very sweet.

  5. What a beautiful dress and mehndi. Good your mom is home again, it does show in your selfies...I mean how happy you look :) Pawkisses for a Sunny Day :) <3

  6. Precious selfies from all of you! It sure looks like you got your point across, Pearl :)

  7. Oh you must always ignore the humans when they leave you like that! Unless they give you treats. Then it's hard to ignore them.

    We think your mom looks very pretty!

  8. Your Mama did look very nice. It is important to let humans know when they upset you.

  9. Your mommy does indeed look lovely. We can tell that you were quite displeased with her. Our angel sister Daphne was the only one who gave our humans the cold shoulder when they had been away. We are usually all gathered in the foyer staring through the front door, which is almost all window, before they can even get their key in the lock.

  10. Your mom looks beautiful in her sari. I miss my humans so much when they're gone that I can't give them the cold shoulder when they return. I need my loves and cuddles.
