That’s my way of telling the cats we’re getting ready to leave. We now have three cameras around the house so I can watch the cats do their thing while I’m gone.
I usually get the “miss thems” in the evening and I get my husband’s tablet and watch them online, mostly eating or wandering through the house. We now have one set up to watch Gemini in the bedroom.
It used to be that no one even sent messages (I mean regular phones) when you were gone and you just had to trust that they were okay.
