*Meanwhile on the set of This Old Townhouse, the water extraction equipment rumbles at a decibel level just shy of a jet airplane on takeoff.*
WAFFLES: Hey Boss?
KATIE: Did you say something, Waffles?
KATIE: Play TOSS???
WAFFLES: CREAM SAUCE?!
KATIE: It always comes back to food with you, doesn't it?
Tsunami at the Townhouse
In case you're just tuning in, we've had a little bit of a water spill here on Friday afternoon. Due to a faulty dishwasher, a hot water tsunami splashed it's way from the second floor down to the first floor of our humble, and wet, 3-level abode. We're currently in the drying-out phase which means we have about a dozen industrial fans and humidifiers blowing 24/7. Unless you're in the upstairs bedroom, it's hard to hear yourself think.
Though Glogirly and Gloman are concerned with things like hardwood floors, the garage, the ceilings... Waffles and Katie are mourning the temporary loss of their litter room. No worries though, everyone's getting used to doing their business in new locations with a lot of interesting background noise.
Chaos Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
Katie and Waffles, usually independent throughout their daily routines, have been keeping very close to one another. It seems that chaos makes the heart grow fonder. Or at least makes you forget your differences.
Speaking of water... Did you see our Baywatch Cats post yesterday?

When all is said and done, we kitties here all look out for each other. That was true when Sparkle was here too.ReplyDelete
It's nice that when the going gets wet the two of them stick togetherReplyDelete
At least no cats were watered!ReplyDelete
We know how the kitties feel! Panzer and Pagan Eddie (and I) had a washing machine malfunction this past week.ReplyDelete
We think that new hardwood flooring, dishwasher and metal connecting hoses, ceiling tiles, paint and some other collateral materials are in your near future. Until things are all done, you can stay with us. I like cats and your dollar is worth more.ReplyDelete
Just as long as y'all don't get wet paws.ReplyDelete
Working equipment's noise can be awful and very scary ! At least, you're dry... PurrsReplyDelete
Gotta stick together when things are scary ... Gulp!!! It's always about food here!ReplyDelete
You are so right about chaos making the heart grow fonder! Mom says when anything scary happened all three cats would hide in the closet together. Love Dolly Pees: So sorry about the water!!ReplyDelete
Yep, chaos seems to overrule anything else that's going on.ReplyDelete
So sorry about your flood. We hope things dry out soon and at least the noisy part can be over and done with.ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day!!
Kitties always have each other's backs, no matter what. Even (as Mommy tells our vet) they "tolerate each other". Hope your house dries out soon!ReplyDelete
Good to know that when thinks get tough or scary..Katie and Waffles stick together...Happy Mother's Day Debbie!!!ReplyDelete
Ah how sweet that you do like each other! Gemini and Ichiro even liked each other during the move... ;).ReplyDelete
That's how it works here, too. When push comes to shove, we all look out for each other. :)ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day to Mom Glogirly!
When scary things happen, there is safety in numbers.ReplyDelete
Just think you're going to be getting an entirely new two levels! I know it's not the way you may have wanted to go about it....but we are glad that it can all be replaced.ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day!
Annabelle,Boo,Ping, and Mr Jinx.
Happy Mother's Day Glogirly :) Sorry about the water situation, that can be so damaging.ReplyDelete
our hearts go out to you....that has to be horrendous. Praying the "cleanup" and repairs go more smoothly than you are anticipating.ReplyDelete
wow - we hope you dry out soon. sounds like suddenly the orange menace isn't so bad when faced with giant vaccuumsReplyDelete
Poor Katie and Waffles. I know industrial fans. The other days they washed the rug in our hallway and set 2 of those industrial fans. I can't imagine what a dozzen sound like. One night they actually left a fan on outside our door and TW complained until they came to get it. Meanwhile, you got it 24/7.ReplyDelete
Sorry about the flood!! Happy Mother's Day to you!ReplyDelete
Hope you get some peace and quiet soon. Plus a dry house!ReplyDelete
Hope you dry out and are able to hear yourselves think very soon!ReplyDelete
