Back In Time

I'm going back in time for today's post. Last week was so busy taking care of the mom and having Hugo leave I didn't get a chance to let you all know where Hugo, Barney's brother, was heading next . . .


. . . Wednesday morning started out with a heavy sadness in the air. Hugo had to leave today to visit another of his friends. Though both of us knew that he would have fun visiting other friends we were sad to see our time together come to an end. We did so many fun things this past week and have those memories to last furever. We watched out the window for the taxi that would take him to the air port . . .


. . . I decided to go to the airport with Hugo to help him get checked in and make sure that he caught the right flight . . .


. . . I stayed with him as long as I could. Then once we got to security we had to say our good bys. We both said that it wasn't a good by because we are friends furever and will stay in touch . . . maybe even another visit will be in the works . . .


. . . as I was riding home in the taxi I caught Hugo's plane flying out over the city. I snapped this photo and knew right there and then without a doubt in my mind I knew that him leaving was right . . . he was heading for a great destination . . . he will be staying with the Katnip Lounge kitties . . . be sure and head over there to see what they all are up to.


. . . I will say that I took to my bed for awhile as I was feeling blue after Hugo left. Boy I sure miss him but I will keep in touch with him.
If you would like Hugo to visit you all you have to do is leave a comment on where he is staying and the first one that does that will probably find him knocking at your door for a visit.


ps: If you need me in the next couple of days you will find me over at Mango's place. You see someone ordered a hit on him and I have gone over to give him some protection. Mango, I've got your back!

It's nice having fun visitors, but hard when they go.

Kea said...

Of course you'll miss Hugo; he was a great visitor! We've already seen that he's arrived safe and sound at the Katnip Lounge and we're he'll have an exciting time there too, with all 13 kitties!

The Creek Cats said...

We know Hugo will miss you too! He had such a great time with you, Gracie!

Hugo does look like he's enjoying his visit with you, Gracie! He sure doesn't know what he has in store when he visits the Katnip Lounge! Wish we could go with him!

Mango said...

I updated my blog post for today with your fierce face. That should keep those labragoons away.

Gracie, this is such an adorable post. How nice that yousent Hugo First Class!

He will have fun with the Lounge kitties but it will be a less intimate time, being as there are 13 of them.

Gracie, I miss you too! I had so much fun with you.
Whew, these Lounge Kats are crazypants! Their Mommy said you can come over ANY time, there's always room for a grey kitty with white mittens and impeccable manners.

Love, Hugo

Gracie, we know you're gonna miss Hugo but he's gonna have such a good time with the Lounge Kats...have you seen what their dad, Mr. Crazypants has done to their catio?? He made bridges to nowhere! Hugo is gonna love that!!

Marg said...

It is really hard for a friend to leave. We saw Hugo over at the Lounge. We would love for Hugo to come visit us sometime if that is possible. Everyone here wants to meet him including the goat.
Have a great week. Glad you are going to help Mango.
Take care.

I am sorry that you are sad. I think Hugo will have had the best time with you.. I have to say that last picture is fabulous.. HUgs GJ xx

We bet Hugo is missing you too, Gracie! It sounds like you two had lots of fun, and a great visit.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Gracie! I am so sad that you are sad that Hugo had to go! He will definitely have to make a special second trip to see you - maybe before he heads back home in a while! And oh boy, it was great that you stayed with him - we bet it helped him stay relaxed before his flight (he gets a little nervous). And boy, we had no idea you were so good at protection - don't worry - I think it is great for you to stick up for your friend (we haven't really met Mango but have heard about him a lot). I think you look kinda cool in that last picture - like a spy (I like spy movies!)

Smoochies!!
