As you can see, I am not home in this photo! Remember how I casually mentioned that the heater was broken in Monday’s post? Well, it wasn’t just broken, the furnace died and needed to be replaced! Although it does not get all that cold where we live in the winter, if it is as cold at night in the house as it is outside, it is still unpleasant, at least if you are my human. She immediately got on the phone with an air conditioning and heating company she knew, made a few calls and was able to get the dead furnace replaced with a new, more efficient system within a couple of days! But she refused to sleep in the house until it was installed. Her boyfriend did not care because he is from the east coast, so she left him, Binga and Boodie and took me to her friend’s house for a couple of nights. You may remember this house from the ant disaster Sparkle told you about last July.
Unlike the other cats, I liked staying at my human’s friend’s house! There was an awesome view of the back deck. It’s prettier than what I have to look at in our backyard. Plus, her friend convinced her to let me hang out with the two of them and the two cats that live here. So my human put my harness and leash on me, to help keep me safe, but it was all okay. The other cats thought it was a little weird I was there, but I just hung out on the love seat and chilled while the humans talked.
When you are staying somewhere new, it is very important to have a comfortable bed to sleep in.
I loved this bed! It became my hangout spot when I wasn’t with the humans.
One of the things I really liked about this house was it has built in cat toys!
There was even a big hockey rink! My human called it a bathtub. It wasn’t, it was a kitty emporium.
We actually only spent evenings there. During the day it was warm enough for us to come home. We had to get up extra early on the day the heating workers came to install the new system. It was a really big project!
One worker even had to cut a couple of holes in the floor — one right where our cat tree is!
You can tell I was not pleased.
It totally did not meet with my approval! But the good news is that the worker humans got done in one day instead of two, so the heater is working and we are totally home now! I think Binga even kind of missed me. I enjoyed my couple of nights away, but really, there is no place like home!
