Mu-thar!! Waht-ev-ah Did You Do to Ar Kitch-Chin?

A friend of ours wanted to repay us for helping her by painting our kitchen (thank goodness!  we've been here four?  five? years and I despise that wallpaper!).  She was here on Thursday and had to move things around in order to mud the seams.  She took a bookcase downstairs, moved the cat food bowls, etcetera etcetera.  So it's no surprise that we have been shunned.  For all of Thursday night the cats only came in to eat.  Humans?  What human??  ::bows head in shame::  Last night we manged to get Star & Mister Kitten to come into the house with bribes of treats and Corwyn was able to hold his beloved Mister Kitten again.  Star went Ninja.  However!  Thomas graced us with his presence at bedtime.  whew! 

This morning Star came in again when I walked back inside.  I almost thought he wasn't going to do it.  He almost thought he wasn't going to do it.  But after some treats, laying on my ginormous mousepad, letting me scritch him, and trying to walk across the keys a few times, he has resumed his post at the foot of the bed.  ::sigh::  It's only one cat, but it's a start.

"You do realize that you'll have to get us
greenies rather than treats from the grocery now."

"I will graciously accept the treats you have in hand now,
so long as you give them to me ne-ow."

"I might even be tempted to hang around with you for a bit."

Da Boys wanted me to link this to the large pet bowl in penance for the kitchen fiasco!
I'm going to go put it into the two sections (clothing & other things) right now!


  1. Moved the cat food bowls. There is No greater sin in CatDom! This may require hours of penitential skritching and mounds of treats.

  2. Good for you getting your kitchen repainted, although renovations are always a hassle for humans and animals alike!...They will just have a lot to check out once everything is back in it's proper place...Winning them over with treats sounds like a good plan!...kisses the your handsome boys...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  3. It always feels so good to get things done around the house that have needed to be done.

  4. sigh. my mommeh is ALWAYS moving the foods. i unnerstands. i am sorreh you got overhauled.

  5. They have moved the food back to the regular wall. But it keeps getting worse!! Oh noes!!
