Temp Apts 4 Thru 7
Percy: This was temporary apartment 4. It was compact (at least I couldn't get stuck inside it) and a bit higher than some of the former ones. It was light and airy, near food and water and had enough of a "yard" to have a small party. A drawback was that it was too close to the noisy neighbors that drove me out of my favorite cabinet.
Welcome back to the saga of my search for a new apartment. Last week I showed you Temporary Apartment 3. This week I will do a fast tour of numbers 4 through 7. Remember, I am a cat and apartment hunting is not unusual.
I was relaxing when Jan entered the kitchen and yelled, "Get off my dish drainer! It's reserved for clean dishes.
"I'm clean," I countered.
"But you're a CAT!"
So I moved onto a storage shelf. Here I am surrounded by bags. I'm not a plastic bag, so I moved upstairs to the next shelf.
Number 5 was a plastic-lined wicker basket. It was okay, but not great. When Hurricane Jan blew through and turned it upside down, I was forced to move next door to number 6. I removed all her junk in the way (kicked to the floor) and was fairly comfortable there for a couple of days. But then I discovered the penthouse apartment, otherwise known as number 7. There was enough room for me to stretch. (See my foot and tail sticking out. Click on photo to enlarge if you can't read it.)
This penthouse wicker basket was super comfy. It had a big, soft cushion for me to relax on. Yes, this was definitely where I wanted to live. I didn't stick to the plastic liner and the privacy was to die for!
Until Jan found me. "That basket is for pillows, not cat hair! You need to move."
I could see her hesitate when I gave her my "Oh, yeah, make me!" look, but it didn't stop her. She turned my apartment around so I couldn't access it.
Evicted again. I would be embarrassed to be homeless, but I didn't live to become a senior mancat by giving up. I will win!
And by the way, I should have peed on her dish drainer while I had the chance.

Today is also Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day and we would like to take a moment to remember all the Funny Farmers we've lost since we began blogging: Jenny, Crystal, Cotton, Grayce, Cameron, Sam, Buddy & Merci. (Again, you can click on the picture to enlarge it.)
We all miss each of you and are the better for having known you. Note: Micah and Percy will most likely not be saying that when one of them goes, but who knows - they might become friends before then! :)
