Houseguests or HGTV?

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I'm a very smart cat. Good looking too, but that's not relevant at the moment. I can put two and two together. I can read the signs. I'm concerned. Actually, I'm very concerned. Glogirly is spending a lot of time in places she doesn't belong. She's been making improvements and tidying up in all the bedrooms and bathrooms that she doesn't use herself. Yes, she's a neat freak. So am I. But this goes way beyond her neat freakishness.

I've already spoke of the downstairs red room being converted to a guest room, bed and all. Well there's more. There's a bathroom down there too that never gets used. Except by me. That's where my litter box is. Out of the blue she's making it all fancy. New photographs hanging on the wall. A new hand towel and a fresh bar of pretty soap. She's scrubbed the floor and tucked my litter box out of view. I've even heard talk of a new rug.

The same kinds of things are happening in the upstairs bedroom and bath. I have a very bad feeling. This is not just your ordinary guest who will come and go within a 24-36 hour window of time. She's making these rooms so nice that I fear we may be looking at a more long-term situation. I simply cannot live in an environment where intruders, pretending to be all friendly and happy, take over my space. How will I get to my food and still avoid contact? How can I possibly navigate a path to my litter box when some stranger is snoring a few feet away? How can I do all this and be expected not to hiss?! There will be no place to hide and I will have no choice but to maintain a 24-7 guard post. I can kiss my napping schedule goodbye.

I only hope that these preparations are nothing more than glogirly watching a few too many HGTV shows. To be safe, I'm going to hide the remote. I will keep you apprised.
