Boots went to stay with my parents while I went to the beach for the last few days. I'm going on another trip next Friday, so they were just going to keep him for me until I got back from that, since Boots doesn't like car rides and we thought he'd rather stay in the same place. Well, we stopped by their house on the way back from the beach, and found out that while I was gone, he has been keeping everyone up all night, meowing and pawing at my sister's and parent's doors, follows them around meowing in the morning, and is terrorizing the dog. He's a real sweetie at home and NEVER makes any noise or keeps us awake at night. My mom thinks he misses me and is convinced that I'm behind one of their closed doors. She even spent the night in my room one night to keep him company! So instead of keeping him this week, she's making a special trip tomorrow to bring him back to me!
I felt bad that he'd been bad for them, but I didn't know he liked me that much! I guess he's bonded with me after all (I've had him about 6 weeks). I feel loved.
