**The purrs all over CB worked!!!! Mom Laura and her trio of kitties were reunited!**

Back home in the woods, they had an energy audit done and got the report on Friday. As I had expected, this place sucks! Heat wise, I mean, not the whole thing. (The PM just shot me a dirty look.) Now the fun part begins, making all the upgrades recommended. Also they thought that since they were going to be working on the house they might as well do EVERYTHING they wanted. Well, almost everything. The list is exhausting. From all new windows and a new door to flooring, insulation, a new bathroom, and new paint everywhere.

Get this, the PM is sick of almost everything being the same colour as me! I was quite offended. I AM the perfect colour! I am personally sick of the chocolate brown beams everywhere. Looks like a set from "Fantasy Island", only not a tropical paradise. Has that 70's chalet feel. I am surprised there isn't a shag rug around.

So this weekend, lists were made, plans thought out and measurements taken. I, of course, did my best to snoopervise. Please excuse the wee-ness of these itty bitty photos, the PM had a migraine and forgot to upload them at a normal size. You may need to haul out the magnifying glass. I tried to make her redo them but it takes so long out here in the boonies, she said NO!



Keep it movin'. Keep it movin', I'll tell you when to stop.



OK, Stop! Looking at those stairs maybe they should add restaining them too, they look like crap. The PM loves these stairs as they did them as soon as they moved in as they were covered in bright blue carpet. **shudder** They could use some maintenence work though. And see the beam beside me? Gross! Some are stained dark brown whereas some as painted that same hideous colour. They are all chewed to h*** and it wasn't me. I would be worried about lead poisoning. The people who lived here before had two HUGE German Rottwiellers that were insane and they clawed and chewed the beams, the walls, the mouldings.

Better run more work to do, I mean snoopervise. I better be getting good pay for this. At least five Temptations an hour.

Goldie, you have your work cut out for you! Five Temptations an hour should be about right. If the job becomes too stressful, demand Greenies as hazard pay. Good luck with your endeavors.

We like home-improvement projects. We get to climb ladders, wlak through paint and snoopervise all activities. It's very exciting! You should have lots of fun!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Nice job snoopervising, Goldie! Good luck to you and your humans with all the renovations!

PB & J said...

Oh boy is that going to be a lot of snoopervising Goldie! Looks like your list is as long as ours :-)

JB's Big World said...

You are a great snooperviser. Maybe you should ask for a raise to 6 Temptaions per hour?

Daisy said...

Do not forget to ask for overtime, too. That's 7 1/2 Temptations per hour.

Mickey said...

Oh wow! Sounds like your place will be in turmoil for a while!!
You will make a great snoopervisor.
Getting rid of the beams is one thing, but being tired of the colour of you?!!!!!! PM has no taste!
Our place was all pine that had aged and was dark. Mom painted it and is still working on it ,heehee
have fun and make sure you get nice windows to look out of in the wintertime!!

Sounds like you are going to have a new house soon. How exciting! Needs a lot of snoopervising in days to come, so you'd better get enough naps to get you through the tough times ahead.

Lux said...

Just five? I'd demand more like, well, at least 11!

MISS PEACH >(^.^)< said...

Dearest Goldie & Shade! You sweet comment has kept mommy so very happy for days now...it is the kindest thing a kitty ever said to me. Thank you so very much. I do love all the kitties and my tiny heart just breaks when they are in danger or hurting.
I can understand your desire for your beans to get your cottage in order...ours is a work in progress too. We are buying paint tomorrow!! Our bathroom needs retile on the floor too....but first we will go to Hawaii ....then we work:)
Thank you both for your fine friendship...much love from Miss Peach

Great job snoopervising!!!!!!

I did have to share my gifts. At first I was kinda bummed, but when I saw how much fun Orion was having I was glad I shared.

This is so good Goldie. You are really sharp and on the alert for anything that goes awry. Ready for action!

great photos too!!

The Crew said...

Let me give you a bit of advice -- rest whenever you can. Our Mom started re-decorating back in Nov. and is still at it. I barely get any naps at all with all the snoopervising I have to do!!

"Wow" Goldie looks like your going to be very busy.I think five temptations

Cecil the Cougar: said...

You are going to have a lot of snoopervising to do, Goldie. Better rest up whenever you can. I wish your beans all the best in their renovations and as little stress as possible.
