Tuesday Tsunami

We got nearly drowned yesserday morning and we are still recovering.  The basement got all wet and there was standing water between the stairs and the litterboxes.  That caused a lot of Mews discussion.

Like, we know what happens with the scoopable litter when we pee on it, and we didnt want to go to the boxes with wet paws!  Its sticky...

Fortunately, Dad woke up in time before we had to make "the difficult choice".  He lifted the biggest box to dry space.  We were pretty much clenching our butts tightly in uncertainty of "where to go", so that was a really good thing.  We actually formed a line and "went" as quickly as possible in turn.  And Dad just sat there cleaning the box as we went.  He forgives everything...

Sometimes we dont appreciate him as much as we could.  On the other paw, that IS part of his job.  So, annyway, it all worked out.

Why did the basement get all wet?  Well, there is more to it than just the wet basement.  It rained over 6" here in a few hours.  The details (and pictures) are all on his own blog.  WE only had mild annoyances.  Dad has more problems...

But of course we have to show pictures of us aside from all that.

Problems accessing litterboxes are just The Worst! Well, actually, problems not getting fed nice food at mealtimes is actually The Worst, but litterbox problems would be the next worst kind of problems to have. I'm glad that TBT got there and sorted out a solution in time.

I took a quick peek at TBT's own blog... and wow, what a mess! I'm glad I'm not a human who has to sort that sort of thing out.

I am glad your Dad got the litter box situation under control for all of you. I looked at his blog and there certainly is a lot to sort out. Not a good thing to wake up to. Even when rain is desperately needed because it has been so dry, heavy rain like that just runs off parched ground so causes big problems instead of helping.

We are glad it was not too serious at your place!
