We took the weekend off and went up to Victoria, BC for two nights. Our car sitter was in of course to feed and play with the boys.
No doubt Oscar didn't get enough play time without round-the-clock attention, because he was pure FRAP last night, and this morning he was running at full volume by 5;30 AM.
I tried closing the bedroom door (putting the humans in protective custody as it were), but he sat outside and meowed. So I woke up the bailiff and she remanded him to jail.
He seems to do this every time we leave town, so I expect (hope for?) him to settle down.
