Two of the things I will miss the most about living with my sis/bro-in-law are their cats, Sebastian and Skylar. Cats are fickle, so who knows whether Sebastian and Skylar will miss me.
I have a feeling Sebastian will miss me. I took this shot while he was laying on top of me on the couch this weekend. He is my Saturday morning cartoon buddy.
Then again, Sebastian will lay on top of pretty much anything to take a nap.
He loves to lay on top of the cushions while I sit in our chair. Since I’m leaving it will probably become his chair. Still, I think he’ll miss me (or at least my body warmth and willingness to scratch his chin).
I’m not so sure about Skylar. It took her about six months to come into the same room as me after I moved in. Occasionally she will purr in my presence, but almost never long enough for me to take her picture.
To get her to pose for this shot I had to stuff some stinky dog treats inside the toy, set it down, and wait for about two hours for her to settle near the toy and lay still. I got off about 12 shots before she lost interest and ran away.
I should mention that Skylar has the softest fur I’ve ever felt. It’s silky and soft, and one of the most comforting things to touch in the world. She may not miss me, but I will definitely miss her.
