PPFFFFFFFTTTT!!! HISS! HISS! They did it to me again! Totally wrong! Inappropriate! So rude. I cannot believe my humans! They are getting on my lastest nerve! They took off again to go who knows where doing who knows what and left me here! BY MYSELF!!! HISS! HISS! Now, I have NO servants to wait on my every wish and whim! What's a cat to do when you think you got the humans all trained and they take off again and get out of control?!

First, it was a trip halfway across the country to a Railroad Photographers conference, I heard Dad say it's called "Conversations 2019" with the Center for Railroad Photography and Art. He's been wanting to go for a few years so they took off and went! And LEFT ME ALONE! HISS! HISS! He was hoping to learn about creating better railroad photography and maybe find a place to share his railroad photography art. Dad said he learned a few things while there but told me "I missed you, Samson!" I did my best to ignore him but I ended up giving him a headbutt just to make him feel loved- you know how it is!

I get settled in with having them around the house again. I ignore them and go about my impawtant task of perching on Dad's studio table and watching the backyard for any wildlife or bird intruders! It is up to me to keep the home safe though Noah likes to think he has it all under control.

HISS! HISS! Then, they are off again! I cannot believe these humans and yes, they leave me behind... again. I even stood at the door to the garage door staring off into space to convince them to take me with them. Dad did say that I would not enjoy this trip. They are going railfanning to watch trains in various locations throughout Pennsylvania with a full day at Horseshoe Curve National Historic Landmark in Altoona! It would be noisy and even more noisy and lots of noise. Trains are noisy! So they left me again.

Paws, but don't tell them I said this. My human friend "Miss Glenda" stops by and makes sure that I have pawlenty of water, food, and a spot of milk every day while my humans are gone. Little do they know but we have a grand time. We get some catnip, some special treats, some milk, and water and sit in front of the TV for hours watching the bestest movies! Just wait until the humans get their cable bill.. hee hee! And, we get into Dad's music, his stereo and crank up the volume to the greatest and loudest music, nope- none of that long-hair classical stuff.... the greats like Journey, Foreigner, and Newsboys! So don't tell them... "Miss Glenda" and I have way too much fun for me to really miss them.

When they get home, I meow and purr and pretend to have missed them beyond belief.... pawlease keep our secret... actually I did kind of miss Mom! Meows.

My cat friends, who takes care of you while your humans are away? Do you have fun too? Pawlease tell me about it in the comments- Meows!
