Sunshine asked me tonight “Did Mom run away?”
I guess Leo, my first tabby, had told her about breakups. The humans get very upset and then one leaves and doesn’t come back.
Although Sunshine is telepathically in touch with both of us, all she knows is we’re both upset and Sweetie left in a rush, and has been sad since she left.
We weren’t sure when Sweetie was coming back so it was all just dangling.
This is why it’s so important to explain to your pets what is going on.
She knows Sweetie is coming back after 5 dark nights.
