Well I certainly had a very sceery day last week. Last winter Mom & The Dad had the furnace replaced while the big rebate was still on, and I heard them talking about cleaning the ducks. Well I for one have never seen any ducks in this house, and I have lived here my whole life. Apparently, these ducks are dirty & they are contibuting to the dust in the house, cause the house was built in 1952 and the ducks were never cleaned. (I did not know that those quack quacks lived that long..) So Mom had these guys come & they had a HUGE box & long snake like things. I was in the living room on the top of the couch - Mom was not too worried about me, as I have no desire to run out the front door to see the outside world. She got Tigger & Smitty first into her room, but then Tigger remembered how to open the door, and they got out & strolled into the kitchen. Then they got tossed into the bathroom. But then once they guy took the vent covers off he needed to stick the snake thing into the duck (ewww) to suck out the dirt. (almost feel sorry for those dirty birds) So then Tigger & Smitty were put into Nana's room. So far so good, until they started this thing...the snake thing started to bang around in the poor duck, and the loud, horrible, ugly box made the most sceeriest noise! Mom went looking for me, and I ran into the kitchen to make a beeline for the stairs to the basement, but OH NO the box downstairs was making an even louder noise! I was so sceered that I crouched down almost flat on the kitchen floor - I did not know where to go! Mom picked me up and suprise -I clung onto her & put my head down to close my eyes on her shoulder. Now I love my mom & The Dad, but I DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO HOLD ME for more than 1/2 second or so. Mom felt so bad that I was shaking and she knew I was really really sceered. She was able to open Nana's door & put me in with the boys. It was fairly quiet in there. Of course the 2 of them were loungin on the bed with the "what?" look - but not me - I went straight under the bed & stayed there. I did not come out til about an hour after the duck torturers were gone. I got some extra treats & a brushie. But Mom says that after all that the ducks are shiny & clean and there shouldn't be as much dust - which seems to be the case. All I know is that dirty ducks are loud & sceery! I do not like ducks at all! I for sure do not want to try the duck food she got Tigger. NO WAY. So make sure to watch out for your dirty ducks - they are no fun!
