Stupid M Trick on Her Birthday No Less

I'm staying here until the coast is clear

Hi Pals,

Well M really did it last night - another stupid M trick.  Somewhere around 9:30 or so I told M I wanted a drink out of the bathroom sink.  She proceeded to pull the stopper, turned on the water, and left the room!   Yes pals, she left the room with the water running!    

The next thing she remembers is hearing D yell "Mary."    Water had flowed down from the sink, onto the carpeting.  When that became soaked, it seeped through the padding, thru the floor  boards and was collecting in the basement on the concrete!  YIKES.   What a mess.

The peeps called the company that was here to clean up when the sewer backed up a couple of years ago.    He came out, hauled in a bunch of noisy equipment, and left for the night.     

I guess things are drying out.  The worst part was that my litter box had to be moved to a new location because the floor was wet where it usually  sits.   Of all the nerve.  i don't like this much, but what can I do.  Guess I'll hide away in my hidey hole until things are back to normal.

M says this is the most expensive birthday she's ever had, and she's not enjoying it much either.

The one bright spot in her day was getting a phone call from a dear friend in London wishing her a Happy Birthday.   That made her day.

Until next time,

Second Best Is Better Than None

Meet Mariodacat2 - My Personal Stuffie Representative Attending #BlogPaws

Hi Pals,

I am so excited!   While I can't go to #BlogPaws in Nashville, and M isn't up to the trip either, my stuffie look-alike (well almost) @Mariodacat2 will be attending.

We owe a huge thank you to Cathy Keisha's human (Patti) for being willing to lug Mario2 with her on the trip.   So if you are going to #BlogPaws in Nashville, go up to Patti and meet Mario2 and CK's representative - not sure who is representating CK.   We would love to see pictures.  We packed Mariodacat2 up on Wednesday, and he arrived safely at CK's house on Saturday.  Woohoo - he's headed to #BlogPaws.  

Mario2 has been to anipal meet ups on Twitter three times, but this is a first for Blog Paws.  M wishes she could meet all of you.  She says the humans of animals are super nice people and she wishes she could roll back the calendar about 10 years and go herself. 

Safe travels to everyone and have fun!!

Until next time,

F I N A L L Y !!! I Have Been Waiting Forever


I can't believe it still, but one nice warm day last week my humans actually got me dressed for outside.   It was sooo nice to feel the grass under my belly when I laid down in the grass and under my paws when walking.  As you can see in the picture, I was even attempting to eat the grass, but Mr. B, who does the mowing, had already mowed the day before I got out there.   Maybe I can get out again this week before he mows and help him trim the edges!

M says that my next trip, I'll have to get furminated cuz I've been presenting hairballs on the carpeting every now and then!   M goops me with some hairball stuff, and that does help, but it never controls all of it.  i'm not crazy about furminating, but I'll tolerate it outside cuz I'm so happy to be out there.

Sorry we've been missing for so long.   M's sacro joint and back have been bad again and she just can't sit very long in the office chair.   We'll catch up with reading one of these days soon.

Until next time,
