You know I anguished over giving Next and Enough away. I did it because I thought they would have a good home, and not be outside all winter. They have barely been gone 2 weeks, and today, look who showed up on my back porch.
Next traveled a mile through farmland to get back to the studio.
He was very hungry.
I guess I should have asked him if he wanted a "better home" than I could give him.
Not hard to figure out what he would have said.
I called the lady that took them, she said he had been gone since Monday or Tuesday. L says he must not have a very good nose, if it took him that long.
Enough has been missing for two days, so I am hoping that he will find his way back, too.
I am feeling very guilty. I never expected them to be so attached that they would want to leave a perfectly good place, to come back to the studio.
After only a minute or two of hesitation, Next let me pick him up. He buried his face under my arm, and purred loudly, as I stood with him in my arms, talking softly to him.
Yes, L, you are CORRECT.
I am GLAD he is back. Very, very glad.
He belongs here.
I just hope Enough makes it back in one piece, as well.
Just look at that face.
What a sweet boy you are, Next.
I hope you will forgive me.
