WiS is not the only one who appreciates and enjoys your writing skills!
and........ FWIW, as a crazy cat person, I am eternally grateful that only three of the ferals domesticated themselves and decided to become
indoor-outdoor cats. They would need much more staff than my Darlin' and me if we had all nine inside. Besides, the
Tychem 10000 is a bit pricey.
Lol, you have me beat by 3, when I was a kid, we had 6 cats. The late Old Man I mentioned was one of them, he lived to 24, I had him since we took him
in as an abandoned neighborhood stray in 1995. The vet placed his age at about 5 years back then, and he died in 2014 -- not too long before we moved
from FL to MI (he'd have loved the trip up here, he liked car rides) 19 years of the most unbelievably relaxed, mellow, lovey-dovey-est buddy ever.
In fact, he's even part of the reason I decided dating hubby would be a continuing thing, he was an excellent judge of character. Instead of giving
him a dirty look and hiding under furniture when they first time I introduced them, he investigated him, and crawled up in his lap and took a nap.
"Ok, if my bodyguard likes you, I suppose we can keep doing these dates. You're approved!" He adored
hubby, slept with his head rammed up under
his chin every night, or curled around his head on the pillow. That Old Man sure knew how to make a grown man melt, he was always very
snuggly-affectionate toward him.
I bought a spot carpet cleaner today, so I wouldn't have to haul out the big, heavy, cumbersome carpet shampooer to try to clean the carpet on the
stairs anymore (it's not easy, it's a big machine, and those are not deep stairs, nor are they very wide) I tested it out on a couple of spill stains
in the living room (and a bunny accident stain)
I think I'm in love.
Press a button, and walk away while it does all the work. Bissell, you're a genius.
While this probably won't cut down on the amount of time it takes to shampoo the stairs, it'll definitely make it substantially easier (and safer) I
can't wait to get the stairs done now, I'm feeling like:
