It has been more than a month since Jean Claude slipped out the house for a pack of cigarettes or mouse treats maybe. CCL and I are hopeful he will return. Koko seems to be getting used to life without JC. She has a variety of toys to play with and regularly visits me in my home office. She also interacts with my friends when they visit. This morning two squirrels played in my back yard as she and I watched from the window and a Cardinal also swept down from the sky and walked the back yard for a bit before flying off. Earlier a bird perched on the window seal just outside my bedroom.
