Balcony Screen Thief

Up until mid-week last week we still had our balcony privileges. Seems like it has been months since mom told us we would not be able to go out anymore. The painters and people who were going to rob us of our screened in balcony have been working v..e..r..y s..l..o..w..l..y. Every morning when mom would let us out on the balcony she would say, "This may be the last time you three get to enjoy the fresh morning air like this". We actually had begun to think that maybe the management had a change of heart and would let us keep our wonderful screened in balcony.

Then Thursday while mom was out working, we heard and saw a man climb up a ladder and steal our screen right off the balcony! We tried to tell mom about it when she got home from work but she said she wasn't feeling well and went took a nap. She even forgot to feed us until after she woke up!

On Friday, mom stayed home because she was still not feeling very well. So, she slept late, dragged herself out of bed and fed us and then laid on the couch and went back to sleep.

Hope and I chatted for awhile in the living room. Hope thought it might be nice to go and sit on top of mom and purr on her some. I thought we should be quiet so she could rest and get better.

Then we heard a noise outside the bedroom window. It sounded like the ladder that the man who stole our balcony screen had used! Both Hope and I were scared but Tommy said he'd protect us and he wouldn't let any balcony-screen-thief take anything else of ours. Hope and I and Tommy walked toward the bedroom. The window looked strange. It was weird. Some light was coming in but we couldn't see through it.

See! We couldn't see out and there was a strange hissing sound from something outside. We were scared but mom woke up, came in and said not to worry and the reason we couldn't see out was because there was plastic covering up the window to protect it while the painters were painting. Hope and I were still scared but Tommy said he would go and investigate and if it was that balcony-screen-thief he would growl at him and scare him off the ladder.

When Tommy got up to try to look out a very loud and scary hissing sound happened! Tommy turned around, jumped straight up in the air and leaped through the air and half way across the room. I know we shouldn't have laughed but he did look very funny leaping across the bedroom!

The hissing sound was really just the spray paint hose thing the man was using to paint around the windows. It sounded like Hope with a megaphone...pretty scary!

Hope your week is happy and hiss free!

'Hope with a megaphone'! Ha ha ha ha! Well, I hope the painters are gone so you all can get some peace and quiet, and maybe you can think of a solution to the balcony dilemma.

We always laugh when the kitties jump straight in the air. They know its ok cuz we would not laugh if something was really scarey.
