Happy Piggie


I was off work for a week and a day. When I came back, I searched every day and questioned my coworkers to see if Piggy had been around. All I could learn is that she had only been seen on the first Monday that I missed work – under a car. The weather was terrible the whole time, so it made sense she was sheltering somewhere.

I was back the next week on Tuesday. I looked for her and called for her several times a day – no Piggie. I started to worry, a lot. Did she get hit by a car? 

She finally showed up at half five on Thursday, after me panicking for two and a half days!

She had two new big scratches on her nose, which are healing now. Poor girl. She is going to look like a battered old tomcat pretty soon, with the lack of care and not being spayed. Grrr.

Today’s weather was gorgeous. Sunny, warm, calm – just perfect. Of course I went outside for lunch and yes, she came to find me!

Herself on my lap, enjoying the sunshine and the face scratches. I had my boots off, socks off, jeans rolled up to get that lovely sunshine on my furry legs!

Those so-very-narrow pupils tell the story of how sunny it was. So glad to have her back on my lap at lunchtime.

  1. Narrowed pupils, sure, but how about those SOFT eyes in the last one, and the curled paw in the one before! She loves you! You are lovable, of course.

    • No, work is about 30 mins from home – she only just now sits on my lap and doesn’t put up with being picked up for more than a few seconds. Also my boys are indoor only, so trying to introduce an outdoor only cat who also wants all of my attention…recipe for disaster. I can’t afford another one, either.

  2. She’s a beauty, and I’m glad she’s ok . What a worry they can be. Worth it mind you *beams*. Great name too. When I first read the post though I thought your fellow workers were cows – “coworkers” – my brain being slow hahahaha.

    – esme tickling Piggie behind the ear from the Cloud

  3. hey, is there anyone at work who can check on her,a nd maybe give her a little loving ( and maybe some food ) on days you are not at work? Is she getting enough to eat? Hugs

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
