The humans have been very busy, and making a lot of noise. Worse yet, they have blocked us from the family room! Dogonally, I don't really care, cuz I like laying in the front living room under the ceiling fan where it is nice and cool. However, my favorite place to sleep is in the basement, which I can't get to. However, Abby and Samuel are having the biggest "issues."
You see, Abby's favorite spot is by the fireplace on her blankey, in front of the oscillating fan, and she couldn't get to it. Samuel, just can't handle not being close to mom, so he mostly whined at the barrier the humans put up to keep us out of the room (he's so pathetic).
Back in either April or May (I can't remember which), mom and dad pulled out all the carpet from the family room in hopes that it might help our itchy skin problem. It didn't, but at least the old, ugly carpet was gone. They bought some new hardwood looking laminate flooring, and apparently they have finally gotten around to putting it in. They started on Friday afternoon, and finished on Saturday evening! It's a really big room, so that's why it took them so long.
Now, the floor looks beautiful!! They put the area rugs back down for us, so we wouldn't slide around. They also put Abby's blankey back in her spot in front of the fan. Samuel was much happier once he could get back to following mom around too. (what a baby) And I was happy cuz now I can go back to the basement to sleep on my soft comfy mattress where it is extra cool!
I'd like to think they are done with this home improvement stuff, but I don't think so. Mom still has lots of wall paper and ugly borders to remove, not to mention painting pretty much every room, and putting new flooring in the kitchen and bathroom. I see much more noise and us being gated off from our "usual" spots coming up. Oh well, at least our house finally won't look like a retirement home when it's done!
(happy as long as I'm cool)
