How my cat helped increase local employment

tibs(5/6 OH)March 10, 2011

He shredded the wallpaper in the kitchen. So I had to remove it. Then we needed plaster repair. Hired it down, dh too busy and too slow. That just got finished and what a mess. Plaster dust everywhere. Now we need to paint, I just HATE to and am a slob. If dh doesn't have to do his share by plastering, by golly I don't think I shoud have to paint. The painter comes Monday.

Next I need window treatments. There is not one window that is a standard size. All of you living in an old house have experienced this frustration. This means custom made. My mother made the old ones that have lived way beyond their life expetancy. She no longer can do this and I can't sew. I tried, I sucked.

Now I have to try to figure out what I want that is also cat proof because three of the windows are their prime viewing spots. Yeah. Like cat proof exists.

Gooooood luck!

An abandoned house in historic Staunton was recently renovated after having been occupied for quite some time by 150 cats.
The newspaper mentioned it was a huge undertaking, but the reults are beautiful
The couple kept one cat.

The cats at my house drink out of my Rottweiler's water bowl instead of their own and have stolen one of her comfy beds.

Needless to say, I have to ask permission before sitting in my favorite chair.

The arms of my sectional couch are both covered with afghans to keep our cat from sharpening her claws on them. Just yesterday, I heard that familiar sound of fabric being pulled; Maggie had managed to get under the afghan and was having a grand time. Where there's a will, there's a way and she will find it!

Cat proof and squirrel proof are the best examples of an oxymoron.
