thehalfpintlilone said:Both purred and nuzzled their Pawpaw. "Mama sad." Notch replied. Ion chirped in agreement as he climbed into Rung's lap.
Rung hugged the two little ones close, nuzzling them both. “Oh dear… Why is she sad? Did something happen?”
Now he felt guilty for being absent so long…
thehalfpintlilone said:It's been so long since Rung's been around that Notch gives a brief hiss at Fast Track as she pounces Rung, Ion just gives a squeal as he latches onto a leg. Someone else is surprising absent for the time being.
