My daddy showed up on Friday afternoon, and I had to stay in my room while mama and daddy went to town.
Saturday morning we got up and had some breakfast. Then daddy and grampster started doing "something" in our bathroom, and I had to go to my larger room, which is mama's bedroom. I had my toys and potty and food and water and everything, but I wanted to be a man-cat and help daddy and grampster. Mama was so nervous about what she called the "demo" that she went into her office and started working to make extra money just in case daddy and grampster broke something they were not supposed to. There was lots of pounding coming from the bathroom. I could hear doors opening and closing and daddy and grampster talking. I tried and tried to get out of my room to see what was happening, but the door was "up tight," and I could not escape.
When somebody finally let me out of my room there were cool tools everywhere. There was a big bucket with pockets on the outside, and almost every single pocket had something in it. I stood on my hind legs and snooped around inside the bucket. There was a huge wrench. It looked fun, but it was too heavy, and I could not lift it. I hopped inside to take a really good look at everything, and daddy and grampster laughed at me. Imagine that. I was pretty serious about using the tools.
When I scampered into the bathroom, there was a new sink and top on the cabinet. It was real pretty, but it smelled kinda funny. After a while I got bored and went off to play with something else.
Saturday afternoon mama put me in my carrier, and she and daddy took me to see Dr. Mike. Mama had noticed that my left eye reflects light different than my right one, and she was worried about what it could mean. Dr. Mike says I have a cyst in my eye. It is not growing any larger, but it is not going away neither. It does not affect my vision, and Dr. Mike said mostly they do not cause any harm. A kitty opthalmologist comes to the Best Friends Animal Hospital about three or four times a year, and Dr. Mike said maybe Dr. Roberts can look at my eye next time he comes to town. I think it might be fun. Dr. Roberts has a mobile kitty cat eye van that he drives around to different towns. Hey, maybe I could even go in my stroller! That would be pretty cool.
Sunday daddy finished up something he called "plumbing" in the bathroom while mama was glued to the TV watching the hockey game. She could not believe that daddy wasn't very interested. Congratulations to our Canadian friends for a very, very exciting and fast-paced game. Of course, mama felt bad that the USA lost the game, but everybody played really hard and made it exciting, and mama said there is no shame in a silver medal.
Today it is really nice here, almost 60 degrees. The sky is blue, and the sun is shining. Our snow is melting, melting, melting, but the ground is still frozen, so there is mud everywhere. If it was not for the mud, I might get to try my new stroller out, but mama says it is not a mud wagon.
Speaking of my stroller, mama and daddy catnot wheel my stroller around the house without me in it. When I see somebody go to my stroller, I run as fast as I can and jump in to make sure I don't miss a ride, even if it is very short.
Glad you like your stroller. Wait till you go outside and see all the different things up close. Like birdies, rabbits, squirrel, chipmunks, people big and little. Just wait.... Hope you have a great day.
Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda
Keep trying to work with those tools. You'll get the hang of it someday.
I keep waiting for spring to come so I can smell all the fresh air.
Meow, home renovations always make me nervous, Gunnarr T1! But I do love to investigate tools. . . .
Are you enjoying your new stroller?
