Rocco is mad. No, not just mad, he’s pissed!
He normally doesn’t have a whole lot to do with me. He’s a Daddy’s boy, he is. He follows my husband around, meows to come in or go out after him, curls up on his side of the bed alone and gives me dirty looks if I am encroaching on their space.
Today my husband left on a trip for a few days and Rocco is none too happy about it. He’s been pacing out front, disturbed by the fact that my car, not Dad’s, is in the driveway. He sat on the fence and looked out forlornly until the last bit of daylight shone and the stars began to be visible.
After that he followed ME around for a bit! Going so far as to rub against my leg and ask to be pet! I obliged of course and was rewarded with the rare privilege of giving a belly rub. He loves belly rubs, but not usually from me. He flopped right down and showed me his belly. Perhaps he’s trying to prove to his human (and himself) that he’s perfectly fine and doesn’t need him. Or was he so starved for attention after those long couple of hours and could no longer take it?
Once he was satisfied with enough loving, he bit my hand. I refused to give him any more attention, but I think he could care less. He got what he wanted for now. I have the feeling he’s plotting revenge against my husband now. He may be in for some punishment when he returns.

I don’t understand cats. The whole biting thing after being pet…its so rude.

Uh-oh! You'd better warn your husband that Rocco is very unhappy with him leaving. Does he still sleep on his side of the bed??

What a little stinker Rocco is. All eight of us got so used to our Dad traveling all the time that it didn't phase us too much; even though, now he only goes away once in a while. We get really miffed when both humans leave even if it is only for 24 hours. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Yeah… This is exactly why I like to 'share' myself with both peeps. Peep #1 is my favourite – of course – but I don't tell the second peep that TOO much. Never know when the first peep might go away for the day, or somethin' like that.
Nissy #Niss4Senate – tell the PM, today.

We wonder what you're plotting, Rocco… Don't be too hard with your dad when he comes back though ! Purrs
Kitty Cat Chronicles says
Uh oh! Dad will be home soon, Rocco! Take it easy on him when he does 😉
The Island Cats says
Oh Rocco…we bet your dad will be home before you know it. And when he does get home, he better watch out! 😉

That is one evil-eyed look you are getting.Tell your husband to be prepared.

Rocco!!! That wasn't very nice! Biting your Human's hand after she was so accommodating to your wants! You should be ashamed of yourself!
Y'all come by now,

Oh, Rocco, we sympathize. The manpeep just got back after being away for work for five months, and we had all given up on ever seeing him again. (Ashton was ready to throw a party, but the boys missed him.) If our manpeep could come back after that long, your Dad will be back before you know it!
