Mab is still with us. Her would-be adoptive parents decided they won't take her until next week. Personally, I feel pretty put out about this - we'd had a going-away party for Mab (with doghurt, doggie frozen yogurt, smoked chicken poppers, extra walkies and extra dinner...) and I'd found the whole thing upsetting. Now I have to say goodbye to her again next week.

If indeed I even do. Bailing like that doesn't exactly inspire confidence in their sincerity.

In addition, my cat had been missing for several days. Since we got Mab, she's been inclined to disappear entirely during the day and only come out at night when the dogs are asleep. When we had a guest for the weekend, she took off completely, probably hiding under the porch. She turned up last night, standing on my head. Her collar and ID tag are gone, too. What has she been up to? I'm worried about her, worried about how she hasn't really adjusted to the dogs, even though she's shared quarters with dogs in the past without too much problem. She's getting weirder and hidier in her old age, and I miss the cat that used to hang out with me on the couch while playing video games, or settle down companionably with me when I was reading a book.

Animal angst abounds. Blink has even been more food-aggressive than usual, lately - as if he and Mab can sense something is about to change and they're acting out. Blink is more of a cipher than the other animals, he's not very expressive when there's not a snack at hand or a squirrel to chase. Even so, this morning when <lj-user="pyr8queen"> took Mab for a walk, Blink got up in the bed, loomed over me for a few seconds, then curled up next to me with his back pressed against my thigh.

I want all my animal friends to be happy, especially with each other.
