i wrote about 200 pages on the trip, but it's going to be a long time distilling it. it's good to be back. milla let me know how little she appreciated my leaving by sitting on the bed all night yauping every 30 seconds and making me give her a hug. yesterday she jumped in my arms and i carried her around for and hour while she just purred and staired up at me. tatty rode around on my shoulders for a long time and momcat stared at me from a far-away doorway. i think i lost a lot of progress with her when i tried to touch her a couple weeks ago. she's never gotten that close again and, as far as i know, she hasn't been back on the bed.
in any event. phil's here now and he was always the one voted "most likely to touch momcat".
