My cat, Max, gives me the cold shoulder whenever I come back from a trip...he will walk around me, not touching, sit back a few feet and STARE...if looks could kill!!! He does this for a day or so and then gives it up and becomes the usual loving Max-cat.
His favourite place to nap, if he can get into it, is an open suitcase...empty or not. I have learned quickly to remember to shut the lid if I am half-packed as he sheds like there is no tomorrow.
Oh, but how we love being kept by our felines...
