Smidge here reporting on our adventure.....We have been putting a new roof on our house and the guys were here a week ago for several days working. After the first day of activity, us cats liked watching from the screen porch. The guys came back this week to work for one day on a roof project before they add the insulation. It was early morning and they swooped in with their trucks, ladders and saws, busy doing the carpentry work. Mom noticed none of the cats were visible in the porch except Al who was busy snoopervising from the doorway.
Mom went inside the porch to see what was going on. I could care less and was napping in the sun. But where were all the other white cats? She looked all over the porch for them and then smiled.
The chairs are now covered in fleece blankets so we have nice warm spots to snuggle when we sit out on the screen porch in cooler weather. She lifted up the blanket and sure enough there they were - all 7 cats crammed under the chair and behind it under the blankets, terrified of the workmen and all the noise!
Mom opened the door and there was Only, siting on Pop's golf travel bag in the cupboard. Now all were accounted for! Have you ever seen such fraidy cats before?
They finally came out as the day wound down and the activity stopped. They will be up all night for sure and keeping me up with them, making up for lost playtime!
