Yesterday, Mom's friend Vanessa came over. She has been here before and is very nice. She talks to me and pets me and laughs at me when I act silly. This visit was different though. She wasn't here just to hang out, but to learn how to take care of me and my sisfur, Dottie. Mom is going to visit my Grandma and Grandpa this weekend, so Vanessa is going to check on us while she's gone.
I'm a little nervous about Mom being gone for the weekend. I'm afraid it's going to be lonely without her. I won't have her to snuggle with when we go to bed or be able to sit on her lap at the computer. She says it will be okay and that she'll be back on Monday, but it's going to feel like a long, long time.
She is making me wear my collar, too. She said it's for my safety, in case anything were to happen, but I don't like having it on. It jingles and rubs on me. I keep trying to bite the tags off, but it's not working very well.
Dottie doesn't seem to be bothered by Mom leaving. She acts like she hasn't even given it a second thought. Maybe I just think too much. I hope Mom has a good time on her visit, but I can't wait for her to come home. She hasn't even left yet and I miss her already.
