Remember those video compilations of SUPER excited dogs welcoming home their owners after being overseas for months at a time? (RELATED VIDEO: Dogs welcoming home soldiers will melt your cold heart)
Well, this is nothing like that.

This kitty reacts much like ours when we’ve been away, only ours refuse to talk to us for about half an hour. Then they get over it and give us a snuggle.
The best the guy can hope for is that the cat didn’t poop in his shoes...
That's because cats view their owners as their captors who the cats "tolerate."
Our cat knows our car( new 1 less than 6 months old ) and will welcome you at the door
Cats have a proper sense of decorum.
So will mine. the longest I was away from my girl was a week or so, I had a pet sitter live in. When I came home she ran right up to me.
I think this video is faked IMHO Cats are aloof but they are not that aloof
Our cat punishes us by ignoring us for a day or so.
He’s just too fat to get up!
Last time I returned from a week’s trip, Frisky the wonder tigress hid under the bed about an hour. When she finally ventured out, it was to complain-complain-complain quite some while.
Our cat punishes us by ignoring us until it's time to eat....LOL
Before I retired I was working the 3-11 shift. Every night when I pulled into the parking lot in front of my apartment building, I could see the silhouette of my cat in the living room window. Then he’d be sitting at the door when I opened it. Sure do miss him.
I can believe this, because I was in the hospital for a week. When I came home, most of my cats ignored me for a day or so. Then, one at a time they came back to me. Only my favorite cat came right up to me when I opened the door.
Your favorite cat was talking behind your back while you were in the horsepistol. That’s why the other two ignored you while No. 1 then sucked up upon your return.
They are devious little buggers!
(by the way, I hope all is well and you’ve fully recovered).
“The best the guy can hope for is that the cat didnt poop in his shoes...”
Beat me to it by just that much.
Mostly they wander up and look at you as if to say, “YOU didn’t feed me.” “I wonder if I can eat that?”
My cat would lift it’s nose up in the air and walk upstairs and immediately cr@p on my bedroom pillow. He did it twice before I realized this was gonna happen every time I left. I wouldn’t let him in my bedroom for about a week after returning as he seemed to forget about squeezing out my due punishment if he wasn’t able to go bombs away immediately..
We were gone for a week and the pets were boarded. Our big Maine Coon was “short tempered” with the people at the kennel but was affectionate with us when we picked him up.
One thing shocked me, the kid who carried him out held him like you see some people hold “show” cats with the cat standing on his forearms. I was shocked that the cat went along with it and the kid could support the weight!
Our cat walks around the house complaining for 24 hours. Then he forgets.
Fat Freddy's Cat reference?
Our Bob is 17#
I have an old cat friend up in Arlington who I hadn’t seen for a couple of years. I stopped by, it took a few minutes for him to recognize who I was, then he rushed out from underneath a car and he was *all over* me.
Great kitty. It’s always a treat to spend a little time with him. I house-sat for his humans for a few weeks once. I’m told he slept on my bed in the guest room for weeks after that. Animal buddies...
“Just to show how forgiving I am, even though you disappeared for six months, I will permit you to pet me. Briefly.”
Some of my cats have been overjoyed to see me return and some have turned cold shoulders and kept grudges for hours or even a day.
I think they plot and plan together because all would act one way or the other in unison.
A friend of mine left her two cats with me when she went on vacation for a month. When she came back to get them, the male cat jumped out of her car and ran back to my front door, where he waited for me to let him back in. I don’t think she ever forgave me for the cat’s behavior.
Maybe, but there are six of them and they usually dislike each other too much to cooperate on amything. Maybe this was a special case.
They are devious little buggers!
On a good day.
(by the way, I hope all is well and youve fully recovered).
Thanks. It was pneumonia and it nearly killed me. All is well now.
The giant Maine Coon, Bijou, comes rushing right over, crying piteously and asking to be petted. She then voices a whole agenda of complaints about (1) not petted every 15 minutes by the caretaker, (2) not being given a tummy rub, (3) not having any lap to take over or shoulder to drape her large self over, etc. She felt that, as a complete diva, she was not accorded status appropriate to her exalted station. Then she rolls over for her tummy to be rubbed. Now.
Years ago I had my son baby sit my dog while I went on vacation...when I went to pick her up, she sat next to my son and turned her back to me...wouldn’t come when I called her, so I guess she was P Oed that I left her. It was the first time she had been left with anyone...couldn’t help but laugh, she got her point across that she was mad at me....When we got back home she was happier...silly girl..:O)
Alright! Glad you knew that.
When I do get back to my house, my kitty always greets me loudly-she's very vocal, and demands to be petted, purs, and she sits next to me wherever I am in the house.
She acts more like a dog is supposed to, when I get home.
But, my mom has a dog who, if they leave him and go out of town, will routinely ignore them for 2-3 days after they get back.
Maybe he's a cat in a dog costume?
