The past week I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time researching termite treatment companies and tree trimmers on Yelp. After narrowing the search down to three of each I set up appointments to get estimates.
I presented all the estimates for the tree trimmers to the other members of my Homeowners Association. We made our choice and now the guy is not returning my calls to set up an appointment to actually trim the trees! Frustrating, frustrating, frustrating!
But enough of my rant… cats are the subject here… the photo above is of Pharoah in his hiding place under the rocking chair in the bedroom. I took this photo two hours after the termite inspector left this morning with Pharoah still under the chair. This is where he goes when anybody comes into the house. It’s his secure place.
Many times I’ve thought about getting rid of this chair as it is decrepit and I never sit in it. But when Pharoah first came to live here he stayed under the chair for three weeks. So it’s his refuge and I’ll have to keep it for as long as he is on the planet. At least it’s out of the way in the bedroom and it’s useful for dumping clothes straight out of the dryer!
I just vacuumed the rug in the bedroom so it was free of cat hair for about two minutes. Freddie came dashing in and rolled around all over it to show me how pleased he was that he had a clean rug to deposit his fur all over again.
Meanwhile, Frankie was trying to take a nap out on the front balcony, thank you very much, when I came along and disturbed him.
It’s tough being a Feline, especially on a Friday!
