We had guys working in the house yesterday, and it was as though we suddenly had no cats at all. Fred started worrying about Alice and Jake, because the guys who were doing the work had attic access doors open, and you know how things go around here, it would be JUST LIKE one of our cats to disappear into the attic never to be seen again. He located them both, hiding behind the refrigerator in the laundry room. We herded Jake outside, but Alice preferred to go on top of the cabinets in the kitchen.
I had to take pictures of where she ended up.
The only cat who didn’t care that there were strangers in the house was Newt, who walked right past them and went about his day as usual. It made me miss Miz Poo, who would have been ALL up in their business. That girl never knew a stranger.
Here are some random pics to round out today’s post.
It has turned cold here (relatively speaking), so Fred got out the kerosene heater. What you can’t tell from this picture is that it was parked about 6 inches from me. Bliss. I was nearly as melted flat as Stefan.
