Bathroom sink is out of order for the night

He couldn't completely fix the sink today so it's out of order for the night. The pipes are out and lying in it so mom has to use the kitchen sink for all her sink based needs this evening. It should be done sometime tomorrow then she's gonna catch up on cleaning up the smelly mess. We live in an apartment because she doesn't know a thing about lawn care, plumbing and that kind of stuff.

It feels good to be out of my crate finally. She just doesn't want me in his way while he's working on the sink, that's enough of a mess for her to clean.


DDP and a sink hairball

Thank meow for the DDP honor!

Mom shut me in the bathroom a couple nights so she could get rest. She volunteered the other day with preparing bags of food for starving children all around the world. Yesterday there was a purple party in the indoor party room because it was too hot to do it outside. It was a farewell party to 1 of the apt staff members so there was cake & ice cream. Everything was purple and attendees wore purple. Today is give & take so mom is gonna take a couple things she doesn't want and see if there's anything down there she does. Tomorrow she's gonna catch up on cleaning since she's feeling better.

I admit that I got in the bathroom sink (despite the ring of pop cans with the tabs inside surrounded it that were supposed to fall over & make noise when bumped) and now it's not draining right. Mom has notified the apartment office yesterday and is still waiting for the fix. She taught me a lesson that water comes out of the spout into the sink and soaked me. She can barely use the bathroom sink right now so she's glad the kitchen sink works, though she'll probably have that looked at too.

The caretaker is looking for blockages in neighbors' sinks at the moment and pulled a hairball's worth out of the bathroom sink so mama isn't very happy with me right now. I'm in my crate now so I don't get in the way & interfere with what's going on. I'll probably get treats later on though.


Fun night and near catastrophe

Just 1 girl came which was better on both of us. They were watching mom's Taylor Swift video collection & playing with me simultaneously. When I tried to seriously attack mom threw a favorite toy over in a corner to make me go there for a time out so I hopped in my box.

Mom didn't realize the oven had food residue on the bottom so when she was making the pizza the oven started spewing out smoke. She frantically opened the window & door as she turned on the stove top fan. The smoke detector didn't go off due to the fast thinking. She taped a note on the oven to clean it before using it again to prevent that from happening again. She can use her little toaster oven or microwave for the time being. She's looking up how to clean it safely (so we won't be harmed) online, it's amazing what baking soda can do!


Guests this evening

I've had my Fancy Feast & mom helped me with my grooming by brushing me. We're expecting a couple guests in just a few hours. They won't be staying all night but will be here 'til around 10 while one of their moms is at work. It's 2 teen girls and I always get excited when we have visitors. I head butt & rub on them for a while for free scritchies!

Mom is planning to make a pizza for the 3 of them (her and the other girls) and she made brownies last night. I don't get to eat any people food cuz mom doesn't want me to be sick but I sure love to get a whiff of it. She put the brownies in a tupperware container in the fridge overnight to keep them good and keep me from getting into them.

They're going to play with me, play Uno, watch a movie & hang out.

If you visit my page you'll see a few new pics. Mom wants to fix the tear in my kitty cube but I'm in it so much she can't fix it safely!


DDP and new video coming soon!

Mom took video of me at my food dish on the new camera and it's more smooth and stable looking than anything from the Canon. So she's thinking she'll use the tripod with the Canon and just hand hold the Nikon. Today will be nice out so she's considering a short trip to the garden with thousands of flowers to take comparison shots from both once her Nikon is charged up.

Thanks for making me a DDP!


Mom has a new camera!

Mom's been waiting for the time, money & camera price to be right. She finally bought her Nikon Coolpix P510 today that she's been wanting for a long while. She loves that it has pet portrait so she can get better pictures of me. It automatically takes pictures when it senses my cat face. The color is truer to life as well and picks up my lush fluffy black fur coat. Her Canon was ok but I looked gray or brown more than black in most of those photos. She's got 15 days to make sure she absolutely wants it so she's gonna use it to the max and try out everything she can (one problem, no more fireworks) on it both photos and video.

By the way, hope you're loving the new video I added the other night! She wants to keep the Canon since it uses AA batteries.


Happy black cat appreciation day!

I just had my chicken gravy Fancy Feast and now that I'm cleaned up I just wanted to wish the other black cats out there a happy appreciation day! Meow!

Of course I'm appurciated every day by my loving mom. We look forward to sharing Halloween photos! She's buying a new camera with pet portrait so I'll look even better!


What a storm!

Mom and I are "Safe and Sound" as Taylor put it. We had a whopper of a hail storm in the past couple hours, mom went down & picked some up to keep in her freezer. She swears its cold as ice!

We hid out in the bathroom together during the worst. She knows how much I love to sit by the window and watch but it was so noisy I'm not sure that I would have. We cuddled and I soothed both of us with my purring. It couldn't have been too much worse than it was other than if a tornado hit. It's on the move and heading for the cities.


All is normal again

Mom sure was busy this past weekend w/ family & the fair in town. Everything is normal now, just the 2 of us together at home alone. She cleaned yesterday & is going out for lunch with another web specialist in an hour and then will be home to make sure the shopping list covers everything she'll need for the next few days. She stock piled a month of food for me weeks ago that I'm still eating so when it gets low she can get more. I'll need wet before dry.
