What a difference a year makes - #10
2009: Beemer is our kitty who would be happiest if she were an "only child." She loves her people just fine but she's never been at ease around her fellow felines. But as uncomfortable as other kitties make Beemer, the daycare children turned our Bee into a hermit. She decided many years ago that she would prefer to spend her days upstairs on our bed rather than take the chance she would encounter the children or her kitty-siblings. So for the 14 years that daycare children were here, nobody saw much of Bee during the day. Hours and hours would go by and there would be no sign of Beemer.
Then, the moment she heard the silence she associated with a certain "lack of children" she would come slinking down the stairs to grab a lovely meal and take a potty break. If she was having a very lucky day, she wouldn't come across any cats on her expedition either.
2010: There are no daycare children around anymore and Beemer couldn't be happier. She comes around to visit and be friendly all day. It's like she's a whole new cat with a whole new attitude. I think she's busy, however, hatching a scheme to get rid of the other cats - then her life will be perfection.
2010 is not just different than 2009 for me - Beemer is feeling it too.
