Construction work with cats

Concealing Cleaning

surprised catSo now when the construction work is finally over, Mom’s making a lot of noise. Of course this doesn’t make any sense.

However, we were thrilled when Mom started a new game. Ok, she called it cleaning, but we understand that she has sometimes cleaning your house with catslinguistic problems, so we knew she actually meant playing.

The three of us had a really great time. Mom picked up things and we threw them on the floor. Tessa got also excited about a bucket with water. It’s weird though: Mom puts water on the floor herself, but she got angry when Tessa tried to empty the bucket.

And then she threw us out of the kitchen and locked the door! What?!? This is so unfair! Mom has two brothers and one sister, so you’d expect that she’s familiar to the concept of sharing toys, but she doesn’t want to share with us! Bah!

The white-brown knight

Tessa was of course first when we finally could use the second floor again. She’s always the braver one, and she loves to explore new places.

Kajsa really surprised me. She usually makes herself as small as possible when she’s entering a new room. She’d never stand in the middle of a new room, but always hide for some time in a corner. Ok, she wasn’t as excited as Tessa, but look how self-conscious she is nowadays!

She’s of course still more careful than Tessa, and wants to inspect everything.

It makes me so happy to see her progress. This is a great success for us.

Step By Step

cat loves to be in staircaseWe were so exited when we got our staircase back – oh, yes, guess how much we hated this construction work.

Tessa was as always the first one to explore – as I said, curiosity killed the long-haired cat. She’s typically more interested in the big stuff – so she was running up and down, because she loves stairs.

I was of course more careful – never trust a human. Or anyone for that matter. So I was very busy that night – I had to sniff everywhere and mark my territory. Again. Sigh. Why do humans think that paint smells better than me?? Oh, and no, I’m not leaving peemails: I’m scent marking with my cheeks and paws.

My new bed

So everything was covered with dust when we came back from Germany, because the construction workers had “forgotten” to cover the interior. Mom had to clean everything and was annoyed. Kajsa and I were, however, thrilled to discover all the things she had been hiding from us.

Just have a look at this marvelous “box” system!

I tested different positions and decided that this is my new bed.

What?? You need this thing for yourself? Why? Oh, don’t worry about the hair ties and clasps! Really, they DO NOT bother me at all, I can share my box with them!

Ok, we really hated the construction work, but loved the chaos it caused. We had tons of great hiding spots, and played with things Mom normally hides, such as headphones and earrings.

It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I really appreciated that I had better access to the most important shelf. Humans are sometimes so careless, and our Mom is no exception. So I decided that she needed some help, and threw down our bowls whenever I was hungry.

You’re wondering why I went for the plates instead for our food? Sigh. Believe me, I tried. I really tried.
