Friday roundup

Hi evfurry.

I thought i would give a round up of the weeks activites here..ready for a MOL..or BOL..

Ok so the cold has set in ..straight away we descend on Lapland…a place where Mums ooze warm and even though they are nowhere near as soft and lovely as us it will do in a pinch..know what i mean?

Cleo and i get first dibbs
Cleo and i get first dibbs on Lapland

Now being cooler Mum decided it was time to get the fire sorted..so she had cleaned the firebox including the window which all summer had her mesmorised..the build up inside the window made a terrier face..weird huh? , so she had left it dirty..very un – Virgo Mum!

So the fire was sorted..it was going gang busters…Dad had a meeting at the SES about the emergency equipment in the trucks..so off he went..

The pups got sorted straight away in their usual positions…

 

Yep a thing of beauty that fire..a real ripper ..notice anything Mum??
Yep a thing of beauty that fire..a real ripper ..notice anything Mum??

 

So Mum goes outside..just to see that the flue cleaner had worked and that the smoke was coming out of the flue…yep roger that…so she skips inside quite pleased with herself and opens the laundry door..VOILA! house full of smoke..so of course she goes into a panic..she is seeing smoke coming from the top of the firelplace…holey cow! , ok so then the fire alarm in her studifous goes off…now Dad had just installed one in there that day..the other ones are not making a sound…so bang..Doc is barking and running around..Dinnerminzt and Marbles take off up the hallway…mum is opening doors and windows and just KNOWS Cleo is going to do a runner…she is on her phone ringing Dad and trying to stop the dang alarm by waving a mousepad under it….lunacy unravelled!..well Dad says all good i am coming..sheesh..so Mum finds Cleo she is UTB with Dinnerminzt and Marbles..Doc is now outside barking still the alarm will not go off and Mum is dragging Forrest from the loungeroom as the smoke thickens and he seems blissfully unaware….i decide maybe to just stay put and watch this one woman circus..Mum throws me in the bedroom with the other girls..

 

Really Mum!
Really Mum!

So then Mum realises the problem..she has forgotten that ALL summer her candles have been sitting on  the heater …did you see them in the pre-circus  pics? yep..they have melted into the top of the heater and of course VOILA ..we have more smoke than a Black Sabbath concert and none of the fun…so Mum grabs two teatowels and grabs the GLASS plate the wax has totally melted off and takes it  outside..burning her finger in the process..Dad arrives home…wearing his emergency clothes because he was at a meeting..so now Mum is thinking she is totally safe..but the neighbours might start arriving…yikes..how embarrassing..Dad sees..Doc and Forrest barking and running around the back…us all UTB the house smells like a bad day at Madame Tussaud’s and Mum has an ouchie..and the house still has smoke pouring out….so the air clears..and Dad gets the ice for Mum’s finger grabs a bandaid and heads off again…night complete…

 

Of course all this fun is made more so by the fact Mum is getting next to no sleep..see Doc has been acting weird..he has been leaving Mum and Dad’s room at night going outside and sleeping on his bed..now this has freaked Mum out..he complains at the slightest breeze so this is weird..and he and Forrest have never slept outside over night..so she has been bringing him back in and he keeps sneaking out..so she has put a big blanket out there but it does not sit right with her..so she gets up grabs him tucks him back in to his bed which is always on the floor next to her ..he is eating well and everything and is happy and playing but this is just odd..Mum wonders if he may have a bit of Old-timers 😦 so she is now locking the doggie door at night..which means Forrest is licking Dad’s knees early every morning to go out for a peemail…the joys…

 

Now because of this and Mum now having a squiffy tummy due to eating Mac Donalds and stuffing a giant coffee with the wrong milk down her chops while test driving cars..long story…we thought we might help out with the bills this week..

 

Our registration is due for us furries and also the permit had to be paid for an excess cat..we are allowed three without a permit..we are yet to decide which one is excess…depends on who is being a cow Mum says MOL…so i set about trying to pay this bill..

 

I tried to help really i did..
I tried to help really i did..

But after pawing through every page and all the writing i just kind of left it to Mum…she was not at all embarrassed to show them today when she paid it…what’s wrong with a few paw prints.. i mean it DOES involve us after all..so there you go..we had quite a week..and so now if you don;t mind i am off to Al-cat-raz..to my bed and supper..boy what a week!

  1. OK – we are truly sorry to tell you this but Mom and I are still in hysterics over this story….yep – we realize it’s not nice to laugh at the melted wax and the smoke and people and animals running around like chickens with their heads whacked off BUTTTT you have to admit – now that it’s over – wasn’t it just a TEENSY bit funny? We think so……(bbwaaaahahahaha….oops sorry) Now we want you to promise that you will have a BORING WEEKEND – no emergencies, no alarms, no visits from aliens – just RELAX and have a CALM weekend OK??? Promise????

    Hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam who is still giggling

  5. MOL from us kitties and ROTFLMAO from Mom. We have one big question: Was your mum wearing those cool jammies when all this happened? The hot wax can be so dangerous. Mom was melting some on the stove once to make candles when it caught on fire. Not thinking too clearly, she picked up the pan to carry it outside. When she opened the door, the breeze blew the flames back on her arms and burnt the hairs off. Any who, we are glad all is well that ends well. Sounds like some “Old-timers” for Doc. Our humans’ angel dog, Poppy, had that. One day she just started wandering down the street and was picked up by animal control. So now that you know more than you ever cared to, we will say Happy Friday and sign-off. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Happy you all got to come out from under the bed too. Hope you all can figure out what is going on with sweet Doc and we wish you all a week with no bumps or ripples. Hugs and nose kisses

  8. OMGosh Pickles, I could hardly keep up! BUT that is why I don’t burn candles. Used to have to leave myself a post it note on the door to make sure I’d blow them out before I left the house. Hope you all are getting some rest. I feel like I need a nap and I just got up!
