Sunday...

And we should be resting but not here...mom found a spot in da corner of da office behind a table where Zippy haf been peeing-A LOT. So, she moved da table and pre-treated wif enzyme and today she is shampooing da whole carpet. Dad is upset, not about da pee but because mom is moving his stuff! Yeah, she's gotta move everything to one side and shampoo den put a fan on it to dry faster den move everything to da other side and, well, shampoo, rinse, repeat. She sed she might as well finish washing da walls in der too since she's gotta move stuff. She told dad it would be nice if he would get rid of some of his bulbs dat he sed he was going to TWO years ago and he agreed, he is outta room. Mom hafn't seen one whole side of da basement for years because dad haf stuff stacked almost floor to ceiling (not dat da ceiling is dat high) down der. Der is not even a path to walk thru. This is very frustrating to mom because she is somewhat of a neat-nik. She doesn't collect stuff and always was organized until dad lost his mind (and found E-bay) and started on a downward spiral of buy, buy, buy, buy, sell, buy buy buy...mom sez he prolly bawt 100 bulbs to effury one dat he sold. Dey is in da basement, da office, da bedroom, da broom closet...even da kitchen. Der is stuff in da living room dat he bawt and hafn't even opened yet. Den der is all da stuff from da restaurant dat is in da basement and da garage. He was gonna haf an auction 10 years ago and get rid of it. Not so much. Anyone interested in a institutional size pizza oven wif a brand new slate? How about some nice vinyl booths or some tables? A double glass door cooler?

Light bulbs or tulips bulbs?

My mum is a neat freak too. Unlike my dad. So we feel your pain.

The pee thing happened to us too a few years ago...before I even moved in so I just heard about it. Madison decided to pee a whole lot under a table until he got found out.

We too have too much stuff...but cat toys don't count, right?

Well, you gotta move the stuff so you can wash the carpet...your dad needs to have a bulb sale!!!

Angel and Kirby said...

We too were wondering what kind of bulbs. Does your Dad have any industrial soup ladles? Mom has been looking for some for Girl Scout equipment.

Oh, goodness, a collector. It is so easy to get caught up in this and turn into a hoarder. Or so we hear. We just want to collect, food, treats and toys. Yard sale, anyone?

Whatever it is, happy sunday!

We had a lot of that that we found from Georgia. It is very frustrating. I bet it is very difficult to get rid of things like that. Our Male is also something of collector and frustrates the Woman but he is not that bad.

Oh Bast, the Mom gets started an there aint no stoppin her... Next thing ya know yall litterboxes will be cleaned and WAXED!

Jana said...

Dear Zippy's Mom -
I had an older cat who would not stop peeing outside of the litter box. His kidneys were not functioning 100%, but that wasn't the problem. It was all behavioral. I tried some litter attractant, and that solved the problem almost 100%. He still went outside the box once in a while, but it was rare. Here is a link to what I used. http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2754845

maybe if Zippy would pee ON the bulbs then your dad would get rid of them!

The Crew said...

We'll be right over, Speedy dear. There's still lots of afternoon left to watch leaves.

Love,
Misty
