“I’ve been waiting up for you.”
Since I’ve lived with cats I’ve always had at least one waiting cat, a silhouette I could see even as I came down the street toward my house. Now that I work at home I’m not gone nearly as much, but I still have at least one feline silhouette in the window whenever I return, often Mewsette, but also Cookie or Jelly Bean; prior to October, it was often Peaches. Sometimes when I’ve been gone all day at a festival or something, I have nearly all of them. Their silhouettes and faces are always a welcome sight.
