Caesar chilling in his daytime spot.
Now, usually, as I walk through the door at 5:30, Caesar is there to greet me. He dances around my legs, attempts to knock me off my feet and has a very good sniff at my clothes. Then, he proceeds to follow me for the rest of the evening. He follows me everywhere; when I get changed, when I shower, even when I go to the toilet. He is like my little red shadow.
He doesn't even sleep on the bed...he sleeps ON me!
So, you'd expect then that he'd be elated when I spend the day at home. Granted that I couldn't pay him much attention as I was busy typing, scrawling, researching and head-scratching. However, as someone who brings a lot of work home, this isn't unusual at the best of times.
You can imagine my shock when at nine o'clock, I sat myself on the sofa, surrounded by work and, at five past nine, Caesar stood up, walked out and disappeared to his daytime spot on the bed. At eleven, I began to worry and called him. He ignored me. So, I went upstairs to find him laid on the bed. He ignored me. I almost began to wonder if I was a ghost in my own house; unnoticeable.
Leave me alone...you're not supposed to be here!
