Or, How to Freak Out The Cat Without Trying
Today was a Finish Up Project Day. Why? I have no idea other than I just needed a change. 🙂
I finished clearing out the laundry area. This was done after steam cleaning the floors, putting shelving back into place and stocking it with a better organized group of Things I need To Have Handy But Don’t Need Every Day.
This project has been going on long enough Bella Cat discovered the Interesting Hidey Spot Beside and Behind the Dryer. It no longer exists as the shelving resides next to it and the steamer has a new home behind it. 🙂
As I mentioned floors have been steam cleaned, or vacuumed, depending upon location. Trash taken out. Dishes done. Laundry done – and (miracle!) out of the dryer.
Bella had been lounging on the bed when I started steaming the floors. Sadly, it was at that same moment she decided to see what I was up to. Picture: Cat stuck in doorway, terrified of The Thing in Mom’s hands. I finished what I was doing and she flew past me to come to a screeching stop in the Living Room and wonder what had happened to all the Stuff.
This cat Really Does Not Like Change and the afternoon was full of it. Smells were different. Spaces were no longer there. (!!!) Spaces were once again there. (!!!!) Windows were opened and fans on. That funny thing that made some noise but lots of funny air. And, let us not forget, the vacuum was out and about. Yikes!
Bella has once again discovered the Library window and has been enjoying every second possible watching Outside and napping while Mom Works.
She has also discovered the front door and has been seen stretching out to luxuriate in the sunshine.
I’m willing to think she has recovered from her stressful day. Me? I could use a nice glass of wine, a hot shower and a nap. 🙂
