Good New Bad News

We have the good new bad new blues this week.

Good news:

Meshia is having a ball. She listens so well. She is eager to please the Humans. She even went out of her way climbed in the chair with Girl Human. Gave her repeated head bonks. She asked for a few forehead kisses and went on her way. She was so tired tonight she fell asleep while Girl Human was playing with her. Soooo Sweet our new devil is.

She did not chase anyone today until, I went in her play pen. Girl Human left the door open. Meshia did not like that. She ran in to tell me so. She said nothing and tried nothing.

Girl Human got Meshia's attention and I ran out very quickly and went to the dining room. Girl Human followed and hugged me. I panic-ed and sunk my back claws into Girl Humans collar bone. I was jumping as far as I could go then ran off to hide. Girl Human yelled OUCHHHH!!! I ran back to her. I quickly apologized and went on my intended way. Now Girl Human has four holes to tend to.

More good news:

For the first time in years Pooh has been so good. We keep watching for any sign of decorating. All has been good so far. He lives in the bedroom and bathroom most of the time. He is allowed out a few times a day for an hour or so when Male Human is out of the house. He has only had to take two tranquilizers in two weeks. A record.

He cried the first few days but found that he has all the food and potty to himself. Not bad he decided. He likes to sleep in the shower and under the bed. He sleeps so well. Girl Human goes in the room and he never wakes up. What a change. We sure hope it continues.

More good news: The project has gotten along well until yesterday. The weather was 85/87 degrees. The sun was bright and all the sudden it turned an odd yellow. Everything turned odd yellow. Girl Human walked outside to a cloud of choking dense smoke. The whole area was full of smoke in all directions.

She returned to the house. Put Meshia in her playpen and closed all the windows. She called Male Human at work. She asked if there was a forest fire in the area. He called the fire department. They said they were looking for it but, could not find where it was.

Girl Human got in her car with cell phone in hand. She started circling the area to make sure there was no fire anywhere within several miles.
There was a lot of smoke and it was hard to see where it was coming from. Male Human called later to say that it must be smoke from an fire 15 miles south of us. By 4 in the afternoon it started to clear off as the wind had shifted in another direction.

Now The bad news:

Our Central Air died a final death. Now we have to have a new one. Very costly and the project must be put on hold until we get funding. Since Girl Human is not working money is in shorter supply. So here we are with a half done project and no idea when it will be able to continue. Well that's how it always happens. Every time the ends start to meet something always comes along and makes them further apart, Murphy Lives.

Sorry to hear about you air conditioning, if summer is anything like spring, you sure will need it.
Glad to hear that Meshia and Pooh are doing so well.
We had some brush fires near us too. There was a big one on the Saturday before Easter. It was about 15 miles away, but we could see it from our house. The sky was bright orange. It has just been so dry. We need a good soaking rain.

Yes, Linus that is what we decided we are going to do. We are going to get 4 boxy things. Girl Human hates boxy things hanging there year round and told Male Human they have to come out in the winter. He was not happy with that news. But the electric bill will be less we figure too. We are trying to decide where to put them and how big they have to be. I say 6500 btu Male Human says more. Men, always like things to be bigger then they need to be. Oop's did I say that????

Maybe I not go to the man bigger thingie : ). Meez family figured da square foot of da room they put the boxy thing in an then buy dat way. One in each bedroom, den a bigger one in da chow-down place. De kept 'em not too low and use a couple a fans to help move da air. Electric bill pretty good cause da don't have 'em on cept when das need it and can set em not too low (just pullin' da wetness outta da air) when dez is away. Dey do kinda block the view.

Our Sq ft is vast as we have one of them open concept places with no doors except on the bed rooms. Great for us kitties. Lots of running room. We have one in so far. The temp has been 45 degrees ever since Sat. so now all we have is heat running in the place. No snow thank goodness.
