Marios House of Horrors

Hi friends,

Life in my castle has been a little wierd fhe past few weeks.  It all startetd one night after dinner when D went downstairs after supper with me hot on his trail looking for the evening nap on his lap.   All of a sudden he's yelling up the steps to M something bout "Call a plumber QUICK!"   Den he got out a noisy, sucker-up thingy called a wet dry vac.  

It seems the sewer thing backed up into our basement and made the floor in D's office, bathroom, hall and into the family room all wet with yukky, bad water.    Den some men came and made more noise.  Dey also came back the next day and started chopping holes in the wall and picking up all the soft carpeting, hauled it all outside, and came back down the steps with big, giant sized loud things called fans.
M had to move my poo box upstairs cuz it was too loud and scary in the basement.   Those bad men even made holes in our walls. cuz the yukky water made dem wet.
Finally one day the men came back and took the fans away.  Den I had fun walking through walls!  He he - I could go from room to room without even going through a doorway.

It was kinda fun exploring all the rooms again and smelling the smells.

Den on another day some more men came with some loud scary noisy thingy and made a big hole in our family room floor.

Oh no - dat's right where D's chair sits - dat right where I take a nap in his lap!   I heard my peeps say something bout bringing their sewer pipe up to code cuz dey couldn't sell the house if the work was not done.  What do they mean "sell the house?" 

Now M would not let me downstairs to see dis cuz she didn't want me falling into dat deep hole.  So she took the picture for me so I could see it.  Scary!  After one day tho the men had the hole all filled up, and I did have fun sniffing around where dey did the work.

Hey - why is dis cabinet so far away.  How can I get up to my favorite shelf with the file cabinet so far away!   Wonder if I can make it if I jump.  No, better not try it. Dis place is a mess.  I mean talk bout sloppy housekeeping.   Der is stuff piled everywhere.

Hmm, who is dat other kitty in there.   How come I didn't meet him before.  Waanna play new friend?   Dumb kitty didn't even answer me.

Den, one by one men came back in carrying lots of stuff.  Finally one day some men came with stuff called carpeting.   Den the next day more men came and put our furniture back where it used to be.  

Now M says dis all happened over a span of bout 4 weeks, but it seemed like forever to me.  I has to say tho, dat I did have fun watching peeps come and go and checking out their work after dey left.    M says everything is done cept the carpenter guy has to come back & put 2 pieces of trim back up cuz he had to recut, stain and varnish dem.    I'm just happy I can finally sit in D's lap for a nap and feel comfy again.  I think I has my castle back.

Oh, M says I was a very good boy while dis was all happening.  Mostly I sat on a chair under the table and just supervised peeps going up and down the stairs.  I never once tried to escape out the door.

Thanks for visiting.

Mario

OMC what a 4 weeks you have had! I can't even imagine my place being ripped up like that!
What a patient boy you were with the scary men and scary noises!
I bet it was fun to go to each room with no walls inbetween though!
Oh and yeah that other kitty sure was "dumb" when he didn't answer you!
I am glad all is getting back to normal!

House of Horrors is right! I only had the noise for one day when the roof got fixed. I can't imagine having all that going on for a whole month! I bet it did feel like forever. Glad it's all finished and everything's back to normal.

Whoa, must've been loud and scary. Strange men all around. We have those fans in our hall when they wash the carpets. I'm glad they be outside and not inside. Glad you survived. That new cat looked a bit like you. Wonder where he came from and why he didn't want to play. Glad everything back to normal.

Sparkle said...

Wow, that sounds like it was a big mess! I am glad you were there, Mario, to make sure those workers did everything they were supposed to, and that you checked all their work after they were done. Supervising is important because you know humans like to cut corners.

Wow, Mario! That looks like it was a big mess!! Even though you were very good and didn't try to get away, aren't you glad it's all over???

Herbie said...

I am so sorry all that happened! But, on the positive side, what an adventure it was for you! Walking thru walls and everything. We're certainly all jealous here. Well, we cats are jealous. For some reason peeps aren't.MOL U know how silly humans are. They don't know how much fun walking thru walls can be! Most importantly, I'm just thankful that u were able to get everything fixed and now u've got ur castle back. xoxo

Marg said...

So sorry for all your mess. Mom mumbled something about money when she was reading your post. Hope all that work doesn't eat into your treat budget (oh now mom said something about insurance - all over my head - so maybe it won't be that bad) Still definitely a mess while all the work happens!

Pirulo Furry said...

What an experience, Mario. At least you're safe.

Cory said...

Mario, that sounds so scary!!! Will you get nice new carpet downstairs? The thought of fresh clean new carpet beneath my paws makes me purrr....hope you get it.

Glad you and your peeps were safe! What a horrible ordeal. But I agree with Herbie, you got to walk thru walls and everything, wish we could do that! Lots to see
