Given that Lydia has been gone for more than a year now, I guess it's time for a new thread, to replace the Cutie and Lydia, Ella Too thread, although that one will still be here in the event that I have something to say about Lydia. That girl was a pain in the butt, but I sure miss her. We arrived back home a couple of hours ago and, of course, the cats were glad to see us. They were well taken care of in our absence, except for the part about our absence. Cutie tried to be mad at me, as she has traditionally wanted nothing to do with me for an hour or so after I returned from an absence, but she couldn't keep it up long today. Apart from her excitement about being able to go out for the first time in over a week, Ella has also wanted attention, which has led to a couple of cat fights already because if I try to give attention to both of them at the same time, both of them are angry.
