These Happy Critters were abandoned to my care for the first time. This is what they had to say to their humans via email.
Correspondence shown in maroon are letters received from the Cats to the Humans.

Dear humans who have apparently abandoned us,
The substitute showed up, so that’s a good start. She tended to our needs as instructed under jimi and Simons supervision. We all graced her with a chance to pet us then ignored her, as a substitute deserves.
(they become much more affectionate with the substitute very quickly! I was glad to see everyone. All is well here, unless you’re an “abandoned” cat that is)
Dear Substitute Mom,
All of us humans were very happy to hear from our kitty friends.
We arrived here a little later than we planned 6 humans need more breaks than the 1 puppy.
All the owners especially Jimis’ much appreciated update and can see he is in good hands
Abandonment Day 2:
To the humans on probation,
(Henry is the spokes cat) Mila, Jimi and I greeted the substitute. Yes, she gave us pets and Simon finally intruded on that but we are being starved! Jimi is having great time chasing Simon. The rest of us are bored.
Abandonment Day 3:
We are under a lot of stress right now. That’s all we can say
It was a stressful day for all of us too…. we’re hoping tomorrow is a better day
We miss you all too
Abandonment Day 4:
Well, the substitute is quite trainable so she is acceptable. Feeding the birds is a waste of OUR time though.
Ok, the sub can be used again. That is if you can bear to leave us again, which is unfathomable to us.
We appreciate the great care you gave the kitty crowd… They were missed.
