I just got back from doing my evening rounds. The kibble trays were empty, so I had a whole crowd of kitties hanging around the sun room door. Even Rosencrantz was there this time, and she let me pet her. Nosencrantz let me pet her, too.
The surprise, however, was when I saw an orange and white come running up to the kibble house, along with the kittens. It’s been so long since I’ve seen orange and white, my initial reaction was, “who is that??”
It’s Creamsicle Jr.! I haven’t seen him since shortly after Potato Beetle came back and drove him and Nutmeg away.
When I mentioned it to my husband, he told me that when he went outside to give the kitties some treats from the kitchen, he’d seen Creamsicle Jr. That was a couple of days ago.
Creamsicle Baby was looking quite hale and hearty, if a bit on the skinny side. Rolando Moon was hissing at him, without stopping eating, so he was a bit nervous. However, when I was done my rounds and about to head in, he was at the kibble house alone, so I went over – and he let me pet him! Creamsicle Jr. had not been letting us pet him before he disappeared. To me, that’s a sign that he’s glad to be back home. 🙂
Potato Beetle, Rolando Moon and now Creamsicle Jr, all come back. That gives me hope that Nosy and Nutmeg will come back, too. 🙂
