Everyone is back home. It took Hilbert about a minute to settle in and recognize everything. Hopper took a little more convincing. She spent several hours sniffing everything in sight before she finally decided things were OK.
In the top photo, Hilbert has taken possession of his favorite teal chair. It’s as if he never left. Below, Hopper finally hopped into my lap after lunch and purred herself to sleep, which surely means she’s now settled in too. If you look closely, you’ll also see that my hair is starting to grow back. But you have to look pretty closely.
