No Katie Here

In much lighter news, The Girl is in the Pacific Northwest! For three weeks! She’s scouting colleges and seeing friends and so on. She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, saying she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good People, and I hope to meet them when they come to town for Dragon*Con.

Kioshi is utterly unconsolable, though. He wanders through the house looking for her, returning frequently to her door (still closed, and no, I won’t open it to let him in), the front door, every single window—hoping in vain to catch sight of her. I’ve never known such a one-person kitty! He does come to me and Sam (a lot), frantically at times, and he lets us pet him. But he won’t settle in our laps long at all. He has to dash to the front windows every time a car goes by, just hoping it might stop and disgorge the girl. I hope he gets more attached to us by the time she returns. Wherever she goes to school, though, I think she’s going to have to take the cat with her!

I’m less demonstrative than the cat, but I do miss her. I know she’s with good people, and she’s having a great time, and she’s a smart young woman with a good head on her shoulders. But she’s my baby and she’s way far away and we’ve never been apart for more than two weeks in her whole life!!!

Ok. I’ll try to rein that back a bit.
