It was a horrible day yesterday. I was sleeping on a chair in the den, which is in the finished part of the basement. I dreamed I was marooned all alone on a desert island with no food, no treats, no catnip, and no one to pet me. What a nightmare!
I was so glad to wake up. But wait! I looked around me and saw that it wasn't just a dream after all. When I tried to jump down from the chair I saw that there was water everywhere! I was surrounded by it! How could this happen in my very own palace?
Meowmy said it was one of those big things on the other side of the basement called a hot water tank. She said it broke and leaked water all over the basement. Bad, bad hot water tank! I was finally rescued and carried to safety upstairs and none too soon because the water was rising and my very life was in peril!
(Meowmy here - The Czarina is getting a bit carried away. The water was never more than an inch deep. If she hadn't been so fussy about getting her royal feet wet she could have "rescued" herself.)
Never mind what Meowmy types. I know what happened. And I have a theory. I don't think it was really all the water tank's fault. I suspect my little sisfur Autumn Amelia had a paw in this catastrophe. She's always taking things apart and, for some inexplicable reason, she especially loves to dismantle things with water in them. I remember when she first moved in here (a day that will live in infamy!). She hadn't been here long at all when she took apart the humidifier and ate the charcoal filter. It was a harbinger of things to come. She even spent several days trying to dismantle the toilet. Thank goodness she never figured out how to do that!
I sincerely believe that while I was sleeping Autumn Amelia took apart the hot water tank to flood the basement on purpose just so she could sail her silly pirate ship around in it. The more I think about it the more convinced I am that that's exactly what happened. Hmmph!
Well, the basement is dry now. The humans are a bit irritable because they won't get a new tank and have hot water until Friday, but that does not affect me, accept that today is my birthday and they are not paying nearly as much attention to me as they should be. They will have to make up for that in a big way!
However, my Catster furrends have sent me loads of rosies and birthday wishes and I want to purr a great big THANK YOU to all of you!
