Princess says, "Where did they go?" All that hurrying. Those interesting boxes. Extra sweet smelling beds with fluffy pillows, and then the "others" were here. Now they are "not here", so where did they go? "That one 'not girl' one who stood just the right size to talk to me on top of the desk, I liked him." "I liked to sleep on his bed with him at night. Now he is gone. I just checked the bed again. Mom took the covers off. Not even the little kid smell remains." "The littler one is gone as well, no more milk dribbled with cheerios to the floor." "Mom and dad stayed gone all day yesterday, then put two new white things in by the one back door today. I chose to go out the other door and explore" Princess has checked all the beds, all the rooms. The kids left Thursday but she keeps on checking, then she naps on my bed. We miss them.

Animals must find it hard to fathom what's going on from time to time.

I know, just when she thinks she has figured us out we change things. She does not usually like children.

@GardenGerty Some animals don't (like children). Others are so patient and kind. We used to have a cat we could dress in doll's clothes and wheel around in the pram. She was just so lovely.

Poor Princess. It sounds like she enjoyed their visit as much as you.

She really liked Curtis. More than the others.

It is hard when they leave. I hope they will be able to visit you again soon. We had our Christmas dinner early this year. On Saturday all three of the older kids and their SO's and wife were here with us. It was a very nice day. I enjoyed seeing all of them.

It has been two years since they could come here. Not sure when they will make it again. We have been there a couple of times, actually three times in that two years.

Has she checked under the beds to see if they are hiding?They have no right to disappear and leave her alone.

Cats love to have people around, they are curious. Poor Princess she feels alone today.

Its funny how our pets react to guests, and how they seem to remember for a time afterwards.

Yes. She always has to know what is happening in the entire house and who is here.

We will have the option of visiting them next summer. I think in June. When we do she will go visit at my sister's house.

They really don't understand completely. They know there was some sort of invasion of strangers and things were changed that they had become used to. Then, they get used to the changes and even like the new strangers only to have them gone again. Maybe have them send something of the boy's back to you for the cat to lay with on a bed if he was that attached. I also know cats who are so happy someone is gone they immediately take control of the vacated bed space, especially if that's where they used to sleep while that person wasn't there.
