We don't know each other. Mom says you are a cute little cow kitteh.
But we're sorry - that your people thought it was ok to go off and leave you alone. For SEVEN DAYS. Apparently they just left you a big bowl of food and water, and one hopes, at the very least an extra facility.
We're sorry that they don't understand that we felines, as resilient and amazing as we are, really can't be left alone that long. And we're told you don't have a four footed companion; it was you and you alone. For seven days.
We're purrhaps sorriest of all for this - that your Mom didn't try harder to reach ours to ask if she would look after you. The gate guard just talked to your hoomin lady when they came back this afternoon; she "never saw our Mom" to ask her. They could have tried the novel approach of.. .knocking on the door.
Yes, we would have been outraged to have OUR Mom watch over another kitteh; she would have thought it a bit uncomfortable to be in the home of a stranger, but she would gladly have traded that for the days of anxiety over your wellbeing.
- Signed, the Kittehs Next Door to You.
I came home Tuesday after work to see the cat pop up in their window, clearly looking for her/his people. When she saw I wasn't them, she walked away crying. It almost broke my heart. Soon I will go over and give them my number so they can call me if they go away again. They are young - old enough to buy a home and have two babies, but young enough to still be stupid like this.
