The People Hath Returned

...and they're like, "Did you miss me? DID YOU MISS ME?"

Um. No. I had the Grandma, who provided food and treats and a lap. Yes, a lap. AND SHE WEARS PANTS. The Woman could learn from her.

So I haven't been hanging all over them, trying to make them think they're being gone was important or anything. In fact, I was pointedly ignoring them so they would understand they're not exactly necessary to my having a complete and wonderful life. Plus, they didn't bring me anything, so why should I fawn all over them?


They did do this for me while they were on their way home.

They stopped at the Chuck Erreca Rest Stop, the one that Skeezix made world famous, so they could give him a salute for me, and see the places where his awesomeness had been.

Fun fact: if you do a Google Image Search for the Chuck Erreca Rest Area, you get to see a lot of pictures of Skeez. And some of Mr. Tasty Face.

They didn't even have to pee; the Woman knew the rest stop was along the way so she told the Man she wanted to stop because Skeezix had been there, and he was all, "Well, of course," so they stopped to pay homage to him. She knows how much I miss His Royal Pinkness. Since I don't like to go outside, having them stop there and take it all in (including, she says, some pretty funky odors) was a pretty cool thing.

So they went to the House of Mouse and didn't buy me anything, but they got to see something that Skeez made ultra world famous, so I think I'm kinda cool with that.

I'm not too sure I'm cool with this, though:

Is she SINGING? What the heck, doods. She must be singing, cause that lady in front of her is screaming and the guy next to her is laughing. Yeah, she sings that badly.

The Man is laughing...but he can hardly hear, so he must not know how awful it is.

I am glad I am an indoor-only kitty - humans do some really strange things when they travel! I would like to have seen the Chuck Erreca Rest Area though.

Excellent pic!

Glad your peeps made it home safely. They really should have brought you something, though. That will obviously cost them...

Unknown said...

YAAAH! Everyone made it back. Even though they were somewhere else that wasn't exotic or anything they could have gotten you something made in that part of the world. Even if that part of the world was only a few map jumps away from you.

Unknown said...

Oh, sorry I misspoke. They DID bring you something. Not a treat something but you know the place you found behind the Chistmas tree? The sign could be part of that place. How many other cats do you know who get their beds actually named?

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Wow! The Rest stop. So totally cool. I bet that made having to leave Disneyland that much better...

Sasha + Saku said...

Maybe the grandma will stay too! Then you can makes the peeps feel more guilty about leaving you behind MOL.

That's cool that your peeps stopped at the rest stop and gave Skeez a salute.

Unknown said...

How cool are your folks?
They is the bestest that they would stop at such a world famous site for cats!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Ahhh good Ole Skeez! That is one heck of a rest stop and we are forever grateful for him showing it to us.
The look on that lady in front is priceless! Your peeps look like they're having a good time!
Hooray for Gramma Pants!

We did the search and saw Skeezix and Mr. Tasty Face. Very cool! We miss Skeezix lots.

That roadside picture was an impressively thoughtful offer to you, Max. You should at least rub against an ankle once. Maybe twice. Not saying it needs ta be frequent.
