Meowllo evewypawdy and yes yous read dat wight. Weez can now see da floor. An meez gotta tell ya’, it be lookin’ fine. But no, weez not hav any fotos yet as ommy’s not unpacked evewyfin’ and hers wuz a weally tiwed mommy after all da peeps left. Da veep showed up purretty close to da time hims sed hims wuld be here and bwought wiff hims 3 big men. They made showt work of all da movin’ fings wound, and hims learned dat mommy not be da meany dat da manager’s been tellin’ hims shes wuz. Hims had ordewed a toilet to weplace da kiddy toilet they put in here, but it didn’t come in. So while they went to lunch they also stopped and bought a tall toilet. Hims had bwought a plumber wiff hims and sd he didn’t want ow “maintenance man” puttin da toilet in; hims wanted it dun wight. Well it wuz and now mommy isn’t fallin’ to da floor to avail hers selff. Weez do hav a
not so weally funny story to tell yous ’bout da new toilet, but weez will save it fur a time when mommy be awake as hers types. Da only fing left is da fwigewator and hims sed they told hims it wuld be here by da 8ff. Hims sed anypawdy kuld bwing da fwidge to mommy so da “maintenance man” will bwing it down when it awwives. It will be bigger and taller so mommy dusn’t hav to crawl wound da floor to reach da bottom shelf.
Anyways, they got evewyfin’ put where it belongs, or so weez fink. Weez discuvewed as weez open mowe and mowe boxes, they just frew stuff in and da last fing to go in is da room they sed it shuld go in. So weez can only hope they got them half wight. Yous know mommy has a music box collection dat hers keeps in da hutch, and of course they all be delicate and bweakable. So afur weez left fur da motel weez left a table full of bubble wap so they kuld purrtect mommys bweakables, and stead of usin’ da bubble wap, they packed it!!! Yep, weez unpacked a box of just bubble wap. Yep mommy shook hers head too. Anyways, weez just wanted to check in and let yous know dat fings went well and mommy be unpackin’ as fast as hers can so weez can get back here and get all caught up again. Fank yous all fur yous luv and support fwu all this.

OMC what a day weez had. Well yous all fink based on yesfurdays posty dat weez be in da motel and ow cawpet is bein’ installed. Well as weez told yous afur, weez not be liaws and weez will always tell da twuff on meez bloggy to da bestest of ow ability. But when udder peeps be involved sumtimes da twuff we told turns out not to be cuz of da udder peeps. We awe still in ow pawtment and da cawpet’s not bein’ weplaced. But afur yous lose it, wait’ll yous hear ow update. Since weez shawin’ mowe update news (we hope not too many mowe) then me fawt me wuld shawe meez latest video wiff yous fur sum comic welief.
Ifin yous can’t see da video, click here to go to YouTube.
As we told yous yesfurday mommy had been workin’ on an email dat wuld lay down da law so to speak. Well hers got it witten and sent so they wuld all get it when they walked into da office. And then today, mommy stawted callin’ all da peeps hers kuld find. All da newspapers, t.v. stations, guvewnment agencies, etc.. Hers left message after message, and then wound 4 p.m. hers got a hold of da ADA (Americans wiff disablity peeps) Hers wuz havin a chat wiff hers ‘bout da situation when da fone stawted wingin’ and wingin’. So after mommy got off da fone she checked da voice mail and heard a kupple calls fwum Louis (da snoopervisors, snoopervisor) and a call fwum Cayla (da snoopervisor) So mommy called Cayla back as she be da only one dat left a nummew and da nummew weez had fur da management company sed weez had da wong nummer. So mommy calls Cayla and hers asked mommy (not vewy nicely) ifin hers wanted da pawtment painted. So mommy splained da paintin’ fing again, and Cayla sed, “let me call Louis and let him call you and discuss all this with you.”
So a foo minutes later Louis called mommy and sed dat hims wanted to fank mommy fur bein’ such a loyal tenant. And hims wanted to reward hers wiff a whole new pawtment. Hims wanted to paint and weplace da cawpets and da tiles and put cawpet where there’s cawpet and these (fake wood) planks where there be tiles. And they wuz gunna hire da movers to pack, move and store and then put back all of our stuff and put us up in our choice of motel fur da duwation. Hims sed hims wanted to do this to show mommy how much hims purreciated all da years of hers exemplary tenancy. (yeah wight, it’s cuz of hers fightin’ and callin’ ‘em on da cawpet <pawdun da pun> and sicin’ Housing on ‘em– altho’ mommy is an exemplary tenant) Mommy dusn’t cawe, hers just wants it dun. Weez lived here 11 years and da pawtment wusn’t painted, cleaned or wepaired when weez moved in, so weez do deserve it. Hims sed when we come home fwum da motel weez will come home to a bootyful fwesh new pawtment. OMC this guy shuld sell women’s shoes, or used caws.
Anyways, hims has da floorin’ peeps scheduled and da movers, and da motel bein’ weserved. Pendin’ on when da movers purrfur, weez will eevew be goin’ to da motel this weekend on Caturday or Sunday and comin’ home eevew Wednesday or Fursday of nex week. This time be no joke. Da Housin’ lady will be back in da office this Fursday and hers gunna wanna hav a purrogwess weport of case closed or da exact dates it will be dun so hers can come out and do an inspection. And of course mommy be dun purrlayin’ and accommodatin’ ‘em. So this time it weally be happenin’. Da nex update yous will hear (paws cwossed) will be us in da motel and then us wiff fotos of da “new pawtment”. Oh and at sum point weez will post an update dat mommy got a new chair to sit in. Even tho’ da cawpet’s gunna be new and clean, it’s still da floor and gunna be hawd on mommy so hers gunna hav to get a chair.
Anyways,weez needed to splain why weez not be in da motel and not gettin’ cawpet now and giv yous all da good news. Weez purreciate all of yous support, well wishes, purrs and purrayers. keep ‘em up as da job’s not ovew yet, but weez awe on da wight twack at this point. And they’ve gone back to da owiginal plan.
Meez fawt me wuld show yous a foto of how spoiled sis Lexi be. Weez hav da bestest mommy in da univewse. Mommy took this foto yefurday while makin’ ow dinner. As yous know Lexi be gettin’ on in years and hers gets along gweat since mommy put hers on da Barley Cat, but why wuld she jump up on sumfin’ ifin mommy kuld pick hers up and put hers where she wants to be. (she can get in da chair by hers selff, yous notice she be taller than da seat and she’s not even standin’ all da way stwaight. hehehe But she duz need help gettin’ up on sum of da fings in da house, specially da bed).

Well how awe yous all duin’ today? Suwe hope yous enjoyed yesfurday’s blog posty. Wusn’t Tennyson a gweat mancat? Meez suwe hopes yous all shawed hims so he can find hims furevew home soon. See weez wanted to do sumfin’ to help kitties and since mommy can no longer foster cuz of where weez live, and wiff all dat’s been goin’ on lately hers hasn’t been able to volunteer wiff da spay/neuter clinic, so weez ‘cided to shawe a kitty hoo needs a home evewy week. Weez weally ‘cited ‘bout this and hope yous awe too. Weez also wanna fank yous up fwunt fur shawin’ ‘em each week. Ifin weez all band tugedder and shawe fur each udder then maybe, just maybe weez can find a lot of kitties their furevew homes.
Now fur da yucky pawt of meez posty. An update ‘bout ow pawtment situation. So last week weez sent management an email and cc’d evewypawdy includin’ da Housin’ authowity and put them on notice dat this was an emergency and dat they wuz violatin’ mommys fair housin’ status cuz of hers disablity due to da condition of da pawtment and their lack of action. (they hav weplaced all floors in da next door pawtment where da flood originated, boof times; and da one on da udder side of it since this all began) We also suggested da fair market value of ow pawtment shuld be adjusted. Dat means they shuld be gettin’ less munny. Well, what’d’ya’ know, they called us back Furiday meownin’ and wanted to schedule sumfin’ fur this week. Thweaten thier munny and get sum action. But they wuz still wantin’ mommy to find hers own place to go and pay fur it, and pack and move evewyfin’ hers selff. Well mommy put hers foot down and sed NO. Course it helps dat mommy be sick cuz hers can’t do nuffin’ wight now even ifin hers wuld.
So today at almost 6:30 p.m. da snoopervisor calls and tells mommy they awe gunna be weplacin’ da cawpets on Wednesday and puttin’ us in a motel Tuesday night (tonight) fwu Fursday meownin’. And dat managers and maint. men awe gunna be movin’ our stuff. But dat they awen’t gunna weplace da tiles in da kitchen, dinin’ room, and pawdee box room. Oh No she did not say dat to mommy after puttin’ hers on hold fur so long. Well………mommy kep hers cool (as she wuz bein’ taped, altho they don’t know mommy knew it) and informed her dat da job wuld not be completed til da tiles wuz weplaced as well. Cuz there wuz water under neaff ‘em and it seeps out evewy once in a while and reeks of uwine and is most likely growin’ mold.
Da idiot snoopervisor asked mommy what hers meant by contaminated. Mommy had alweady spelled it out in da email hers sent, but hers told da snoopervisor again ‘bout da neighbors dog who used da floor fur hims pawdee and dat hims had worms and God only knows what else. And dat nopawdy evew cleaned da floors ovew there cuz they had intended to weplace them. So then hers tells mommy dat hers wuld need mommy to put in writin’ dat she be wefusin’ da cawpet. And mommy sed she wusn’t wefusin’ da cawpet she’s just sayin’ dat this isn’t ovew and da job isn’t complete (and dat mommy’s gunna stay on them like white on rice) until da tiles be weplaced. Mommy also told hers dat she went to da doctor and hims gav hers antibiotics and sed till mommy not be bweathin’ in those germs anymowe hers wuldn’t get well. Mommy also told da snoopervisor that when da floor peeps wuz here they came to weplace ALL da floors not just da cawpet, and evewypawdy wuz aware of dat fact and so wuz Rural Development (Housing). She told mommy she wuld hav to get back to hers Tuesday (today). so maybe while yous be weadin’ this weez be twyin’ to figgew out how to make suwe dat management duz what they awe supposed to.
Da local manager has hawassed mommy evew since hers took ovew wantin’ mommy to get rid of sum of hers fings. (weez do hav quite a bit, but weez not be hoarders and Housin’ has inspected and sed evewyfin’ is fine) And they awe always wantin’ to take fotos of ow fings and mommy won’t let them. So weez got to figger out a way to say in an email dat puts them on notice, dat even tho’ weez not be here, they still can’t take fotos of our fings due to ow wight to purrivacy, and dat they awe financially wesponsible fur all ow fings since they not be movers wiff insuwance fur these kinds of fings. Cuz as yous know, movers hav insuwance dat covers damages when they pack and move stuff. Yous might hav to pay a bit extwa, but they hav it. And since weez not wesponsible fur any of this, weez not payin’ nuffin and weez not signin’ nuffin’ da weleases them.
Well this isn’t zackly da posty weez had wanted to make today, but weez know yous all been followin’ ow situation and purrayin’, purrin’, and sendin’ well wishes ow way so weez knew yous wuld wanna know what be goin’ on. Fanks fur all yous suppowt and purrlease keep up da purrayers, weez not on da udder side of this yet. Ifin any of yous hav any ideas ‘bout da wordin’ weez shuld use, email us fur suwe. Weez wuld fur suwe purreciate dat. Unfortunately weez not had anyword fwum legal aid and da lady fwum housin’ is outta da office till Fursday, so no help there eevew.
Till da nex time………Be Blest!!!
Yous never gunna believe da story meez gunna tell yous today. Weez wuldn’t believe it ifin weez hadn’t been here. And membew, weez only tell da twuff here lessen udderwise noted, so dis all be da twuff. As yous all know me has a quest wiff da cat scouts this weekend and it kicked off last night at 6 p.m. ow time. So as mommy wuz twyin’ to get evewyfin’ dun so hers kuld hav sum time to help me wiff da ‘puter, da cwaziest fing happened. Da last fing hers wuz gunna do afur settlin’ in wuz to go to da pawdee box woom. Well of course bein’ a Service cat, hoo is me kiddin’, bein’ a cat; me kuldn’t let hers go alone. So off weez went. Wight after hers sat down meez dwopped to da floor and stawted lookin’ in da diwection of da washin’ machine. Me wuz on high alewt. Mommy looked at me and sed, “Honey, what’s there? What is it baby? Dezi, honey, look at me.” Meez didn’t move. Mommy sez, “Dezi, that better not be a snake!!” And then……me hissed and slapped and WATER went evewywhere!! Well of course by this time mommy wuz dun wiff da hooman pawdee box and so hers tippy-toed over to da washer and………”YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?!!!”
Scroll over da fotos to read da caption
Water wuz spewin’ fwu da wall of da nex door pawtment, AGAIN!!! Da laundwy room which be acwoss fwum da hooman pawdee box wuz flooded. Da 3 minutes dat weez had spent in da pawdee box room wuz enuff to flood a quawtew of da bedroom. Cuz when mommy stepped outta da pawdee box room to go next door and tell da new neighbor to shut off da water, hers foot went SLOSH in da cawpet. Mommy went outta da house and next door and stawted ringin’ da doorbell and bangin’ on da door. Nopawdy wuz home. Mommy came in and called da managers cell fone, cuz hers on vacation. No answer, just da voicemail. Not a happy mommy. So mommy sed in a stern voice, “It’s Audra and the neighbors apartment is flooded again and flooding mine, Again. GET The Carpet Guy Out Here Now!!!” Mommy wusn’t playin’ no games, and no miss nice gal.
And then mommy called da nummer hers had fur da new snoopervisor. Anudder machine. This one gave an emergency nummer, so mommy called it. It’s out of order! No Way!!! So mommy called da machine back and left da same message fur her dat she had left fur da manager. Finally da manager called mommy back and mommy told hers what wuz goin’ on. By this time all da nosy neighbors be outside and sumpawdy went to see ifin they kuld get da neighbor to come home. (small town-mol) So, da neighbor shows up and opens da door of hers pawtment that has bwand new cawpet and floors, and water gushes out.
One of da udder neighbors sons came over and shut da water off to da whole complex and went in to see where da water came fwum. In da meantime, mommy’s hollewin’ sumpawdy get Cawpet Pwo out here now!!! Da manger finally called mommy back and sed dat Cawpet Pwo wuz on hims way, and dat she had left a message fur da snoopervisor ‘bout mommys situation. Mommy told her dat she did as well, and this had better get fixed and soon. Mommy’s not playin’ nice anymowe. Hers had it and yous don’t evew wanna be on da weceivin’ end of meez mommys justified wraff. Meez mommy be a vewy gentle and kind and even after much purractice, patient woman, but she duz hav a bweakin’ point, and weez there.
So it turns out dat da new neighbor had left a load of laundwy goin’ in da washer and left, and one of hers hoses wuz bad. So this all kulda been purrvented ifin shes hadn’t left da house wiff da washin’ machine goin’. Hers just wuined hers new cawpet and floors and kulda wuined mommys ifin they had put it in on Munday like they wuz posed too. Fank Catness there were purrawlems on Munday. God wuz lookin’ out fur us dat’s fur suwe. And then it took til 10:30 fur da cawpet guy to get here and hims didn’t suck any of dat sloshy water up. No, hims just stuck in those noisy fans and hot dehumidifiers. Weez kuldn’t even see da bed, much less get to it. And hear? Nope, weez kuldn’t and can’t hear ow selves or anyfin’ els fur dat matter. It’s guuna be a long weekend.
Well, weez hate to make this posty, but weez know lots of yous awe concerned ‘bout us and wanna know what be goin’ on, and weez purreciate dat fur suwe, so weez wanted to let yous know. Weez also purreciate all yous support and purrayers. Wight now ow pawdee box be in da middle of da livin’ room floor. Wanna talk ‘bout embawwasin’. Hav yous evew had to do yous business out where evewypawdy can see yous? Not fun let me tell yous. Anyways, meez gunna be twyin’ to stay busy wiff da quest as much as pawsible so we will visit when we can. Course we know yous all askin’ yous selff da same question mommy did, “You’ve got to be kiddin’!!!” As we told yous afur, weez only wight da twuff, so no weez not kiddin’. Wish we wuz, but alas, no.
By da way, weez do hav sum good news, meez patwol, Wally’s Warriors won da Cat Scout Knowledge Bowl.
Til da nex time……….Be Blest!!!

Well when we last left yous mommy wuz packin’ up so da new floors kuld be laid. Mommy got wound and per da welease hers signed she put all da lectronics and pawtant stuff outside and in da baff tub and onto counter tops. And then hers sat in da silence and waited. Wound ‘bout noon they finally showed up. After walkin’ inside they looked wound and sed weez don’t move anyfin’ but sofas and big items. Weez don’t move yous boxes or purrsonal items. And then they asked fur da managers name and went out and called sumpawdy. Then da manger came down and after banter back and forff wiff them and on da fone to their company, asked mommy ifin hers kuld move evewyfin’ out. Mommy wuz livid and told them according to the welease hers signed, all she had to move wuz da lectronics and delicates and antiques (we don’t hav any antiques). Then they asked mommy ifin hers kuld hav it all moved out by Caturday. Mommy purromptly told them NO!!! And furthermowe it wusn’t hers job as it wusn’t hers fault that any of this happened and she didn’t cawe hoo they had to hire, but she wasn’t movin’ anudder fing!!! By 12:30 da floor men left and da manager went to da office to call hers snoopervisor. A foo minutes later da manger comes down and tells mommy dat they’s gunna hire movers to come and put evewyfin’ in a pod one day and come back and empty it da nex so da floors can be done. Hers also told mommy dat she had a call into a company and wuz waitin’ on a bid and appwoval. So, mommy moves all da stuff hers had put outside back in da house. At this point mommy be dead on hers feet and hurtin’ sumfin pawful. But at least it’s all gunna be dun wight and at da same time. (all da floors will be weplaced)
Then weez get to yesfurday. Mommy gets a call fwum da lawyer and is told dat da snoopervisors snoopervisor wuz told by da manager dat mommy hadn’t packed or dun anyfin’ and they had to pay a $300.00 fee fur nuffin’ and they wanted mommy to pay it. Oh NO they didn’t!!!! Mommy told da lawyer zackley what happened and sent hers da welease hers had signed. Da lawyer spoke wiff this Louis guy (snoopervisors snoopervisor) and now hims posed to be workin’ on it. So needless to say weez still don’t hav new floors and da house be a mess. There be boxes and bags evewywhere. Mommy finally got da tub emptied today so hers kuld take a much needed shower. All purrayers and cwossed paws welkum as weez wuld just like to get this dun and ovew wiff so weez can get ow house back to nowmal and stawt livin’ again stead of just existin’. This has been goin’ on fur almost a whole munff now. Fur heaven’s sake weez alweady hav a new neighbor in da pawtment where all this stawted.
Weez fawt we wuld shawe sum of da fotos of me gettin’ in da way helpin’ mommy pack. Weez so sowwy to keep postin’ ow twubbles. Fur dat matter weez be tired of postin’ bad news and even tireder of livin’ it. And weez know yous tired of readin’ it. Weez workin’ on sumfin’ dat weez hope mommy can figger out, and weez hope yous gunna like it. Weez suwe hope yous enjoy da fotos. Sis Lexi slep fwu all da packin’. Hers missed all da ‘citement, but she sez shes didn’t cawe. She’s been fwu enuff packin’ up a house wiff mommy and dat hers alweady knows what it’s like, and dat hers didn’t miss anyfin’. MOL Weez suwe hopin’ this be da last hiccup in this purrawcess.
