I remodeled.....Before and After

BEFORE: My two story hop in condo-ox (condo box). Picture taken in May.
For some reason, yet to be determined or understood, I decided I no longer
liked it.


On a recent weekend in July, I approached said condo as per normal. I did not tell Mom I had remodeling on my mind (that would be a good title for a country song). At this precise moment, the camera was not handy to capture the ruckus I caused.

First I stood on my hind legs with my front paws on the top edge. I peered into the condo saying a few choice loud meows which got Mom's attention. She thought I wanted one of the toys and was too lazy to get it. Nope I meowed until they were all out. This turned out to be my version of moving out. As soon as the toys were removed, I stood on my hind legs again with my front paws on the top edge. I walked backwards until my condo-ox turned on its side.

Viola the quickest remodeling ever.

AFTER: My one story ranch walk-in condo-ox. As you can see I need to call the moving company to put my toys back in my condo-ox.

The only thing Mom could conclude was:

1) I was tired of not having a roof over my head or 2) I wanted a skylight with a partial roof or 3) I wanted a walk-in vs a hop in.
Shortly after my remodel, Dad turned it back up right. I pitched a hissy (cat) fit. (aka Southernese for I wasn't happy).
As you can see, I now have very nice flow in my condo-ox and easy access.

Sincerely Madi

  5. Oh, Madi, you remodeled and did all the work yourself! I am so impressed! This should have been on "This Old Box" on the teevee! What a handy kitty you are! I understand your thinking. After a certain point, one story living starts to appeal to one, does it not?

    lotsa licks, Lola

  12. We are back, Madi, to help you move your toys into your condo.

    Sammy will eat anything, but Andy has a very sensitive tummy, and he hopes you have Salmon Fancy Feast, otherwise he'll have dry kibble.

  13. Dear Madi,

    As president of the Condo Board, I regret to inform you that the recent changes you made are not approved. While your condo IS the required color, the change from condo to ranch style floor plan is not allowed, nor is the skylight. A representative from the Condo Board will be over soon to discuss this with you. Please have snacks out and claws in.

    SIncerely,
    Ima Dogg
    Condo Board Pres.

  17. Madi you did a great job of remodeling your condo-ox. We totally understand because when we have boxes we like to change them up every once in a while - and since you are a diva and a ladycat, well it is your perogative to change your mind!

  21. Hi Madi, Diva CAT!!

    We think your design (hatch roof (for quick exit) open side panel (for ventilation?) is a great new design for your quarters.

  24. Madi, Brudder Ranger wants to know if you've been reading up on something called Feng Shui. He says you now have excellent flow for your Chi. Or something like that.

    Pawsonally, I just thinks you are Most Smart for knowing what you want and grabbing happiness with both paws!

  25. Or perhaps you are getting more breeze in the summer time ... There are many explanations but I think I'm going to stick with the most likely one: you're a diva and you do as you please for no good reason whatsoever. i should know, I live with 9 of youz.

  27. Hi Madi & Mom,

    Madi we love what you did with the place, you are a master decorator. Ty Pennington would be jealous of your skills and you didn't even need a hammer.

    We see the reason for your conversion to ranch style, you have far more floor space. Great idea. Perhaps an area rug would add a little color.

    Cindi's Mom: Triple digits are normal for us in the summer but the humidity is usually really low. Today we had thunderstorms and rain, it cooled things off just a tad but it also raised the humidity. Time like this are when I remember what an East Coast summer is like. Icky Sticky!
