Do you miss your cat?

For the first time I have a cat that is all mine. (Well, mine and my boyfriends, but mostly mine.) I fell in love with her from the first moment I met her (she is missing most of her left ear). I was very skeptical when she came to live with us as she was very skittish and took a few weeks to get used to us, she still has problems every now and then.

But now I am completely confident that she is the kit for me. Every night she sleeps on our bed and every morning I wake up to cuddles. She is so cuddly that I don't want to get out of bed for work. My desktop picture at work is a picture of her (my coworkers secretly make fun of me for it, but I don't care.)

My question is, do you miss your cats while you are at work or out and about? I am not sure if this is something that will wear off, or something to stay, but I find myself thinking about what she's doing and missing her throughout the day.

So yes, I may be a little crazy. But I think it's the good kind. Please let me know I am not alone here.

Most of the days I dont miss my cats when I am at work or elsewhere, but the reason is that I am so busy that I do not have time to miss anybody, including my toddler daughter

But i catch myself thinking of them, looking at their pictures and talk about them to my coworkers, so i have them on my mind

I really miss cats that I used to have when I lived in Europe. Now they live with my mom and she claimed them, so I know they are not going to be mine ever again... It's kind of sad. At least I know they are happy there and I can see them when I go to visit my mom every once in a while..

Actually now, when I finally have cats in the US, I miss them even more... I would love to have them here in addition to Josie and Blackberry..

Don't feel crazy. I keep pictures of my 4 cats online almost for the exact purpose of being able to visit them while I'm at work. Yes, I miss them like crazy. I am extremely tied to them emotionally.

At least I am not alone. I guess having her as my background makes it worse because I always see her.

I love that little missing eared girl.

I don't know if I *MISS* the boys while I'm at work... but I do think about them a lot. I wonder what they are doing or think about how it would be nice to snuffle at one of them.

I'm always anxious to get back to my cats. By evening
I desperately need a kitty hug, which is great because
my Abby greets me by leaping into my arms, something
I just love

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile.

I don't miss my girls when I'm out or at doubt because I'm too busy dealing with other things. But, from time to time, I travel on business for a few days at a time. I definitely miss them then. I often find myself wondering what they're up to, if they're ok, how they're getting along with each other and whether they miss me!

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.
