More often than not, Lola will run to greet us at the door when we come home from somewhere. It doesn’t matter where we’ve been or how long we’ve been gone, she’s always coming to welcome us home.
Admittedly that might just be an attempt to see what’s in the great wide world beyond the front door. She certainly gets very close to the entry and we have to be very careful opening the door in case she is sitting behind it.
Sometimes though she doesn’t run to greet us. This could be because she was asleep and didn’t hear the key in the lock. Instead she’ll sleepily poke her head out of her princess pod and peer down the corridor to see who has come into the flat.
Recently when we came home Lola didn’t run to greet us. She wasn’t waiting behind the front door. And she didn’t peek out from the princess pod. We were slightly confused. My husband went to have a look and see whether she was fast asleep somewhere. As he did that I turned around to hang my coat up and…
There was Lola.
Apparently she had decided that the hat shelf would be a good sleeping place. Maybe she thought it would be an ideal place to wait for us to come home. Whatever the reason, she was staring down at me as if to say “Why haven’t you said hello yet?”
Do your cats greet you when you come home? Where do they like to wait for you?
