How I spent Demo Day 1



DO NOT FAINT BUT GUESS HOW I SPENT THE MORNING OF DEMO DAY ONE

IN MOM'S LAP...YEP THIS DIVA BECAME A LAP CAT AFTER 14 YEARS I DECIDED I WAS SAFEST SITTING IN MOM'S LAP.
WE WERE SEQUESTERED IN MY BLOG OFFICE.  THESE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN
WITH MOM'S iPad up close but I am
100% in her lap and WAS I PURRING

 and I'm wondering why it took me so  long
to discover the joys of laps and will I continue
this bizarre behavior?
We will keep you posted
 When they demo guy went to lunch, I jumped down to enjoy some sun puddle time
to take a nap
I had the most wonderful dream that Princess Leah
invited me to stay with her until all the mess was over...just in case it
was real...PL leave a light on I'll be their in two shakes of a cat's tail



Here is what the peeps master bath looks like now shower wall gone
floor gone...MOL MOL MOL their toilet is in the
driveway.  MOL MOL If they go out there to use it I will be mortified.
UPDATE: Toilet was moved to the garage

UPDATE FROM MOM (I protested this update but I was over ruled)

Madi is feeling quite abused and put upon sequestered here in the very room she stays in every day (with the door open).  The men are in and out all day. There is just no way she is getting free reign during the day. I'm in here with her 95% of the time.  She has threatened to look for a new home with one of  YOU.  If you she calls, please ignore! She is fine!!! LOL LOL LOL
Her curiosity has gotten the best of her. She escaped confinement for the first time yesterday morning as I  was coming back in to sit with her.  I literally tried to grab the 'tiger' by the tail. I missed. When she got downstairs,  she saw a strange man hid behind the couch.  I got her heart shaped Salmon and Cranberry treats (wink wink Easy) lickety split Madi's love of treats and food won.

  1. What a mess! It looks kinda familiar too . . .

    Our Jezebel turned into a lap kitty when she hit about 14/15 - she'd never really liked laps, but she started then.

  2. Madi, I don't blame you for being upset that intruders are invading your house, tearing it apart and making loud noises! I mean, who WOULDN'T be upset!

  3. great that your mom made you a diva-cave till the demo-guys are gone... the toilet reminds me of something. one of our neighbors placed it on the boardwalk together with other construction stuff to dispose it the next day... and guess what? someone used it over night for B.I.G. business ... ewwww!!!!

    PeeS A toilet on the driveway?Mmmmm, that's okay until its raining 'cos the peeps'll get very wet when they use it, possibly a bit more thought about this feature or the remodeling is needed!

  6. We imagined you were in that room singing "Nobody knows the trouble I've seen" since you were locked up. Glad you had a lap to cuddle in.

  7. I bet that made your mom very happy when you laid on her lap. I am not a lap cat. I might sit there for 2 minutes but that's it. I do like cuddles though.

  8. Oh Madi that doesn't sound like any fun to be all locked up but at least you have learned about lap sitting and how good it is. Hopefully you learned your lesson by running into that strange Man. Good luck to all of you.

  10. I've always said those kitties can move fast (even fat one's like Wave). I'm glad the treats tricked her :)

    p.s., treats trick horses too ! ! !

    happy weekend.

  15. Oh my goodness, are the stars in the right alignment?! Madi actually was a Lap Cat for the first time in all of these years?! See what you've been missing, Madi?! Mom's Lap is the safest place ever, plus you get the quality time of them petting you! Good luck with the rest of the intruders coming and going through your house!
    Hugs and Nose Taps,

  17. Oh dear, we understand - nobody likes loud noisy strangers in our house, but nothing we do will stop the hoomins from allowing this. Just hold tight and try to get all the extra love and treats you can out of this situation.

  22. Gosh Madi - now that you've tried Mom's lap - you will probably become a lapaholic like the rest of us......especially in the winter when you need a nice heating pad. Moms are great for that. As for all the noise - best stay out of the way until the big project is done.......!

    Hugs, Sammy

  23. Madi you are so much better off and safer in your Mom's lap in your special room until the Demo stuff is over!

  24. Your Mom will always protect you Madi. You are welcome to visit us anytime, I am sure you would be as well behaved as Flat Madi was last year. when she visited us. I can't wait to see the completed bathroom.

  25. Oh boy - I remember when my kitchen area was being done -I took B to the park and we hung out there all day. We couldn't take all the noise! Do they make ear plugs for kitties?

    P.S. I hope your humans aren't using the toilet even if it is in the garage. Maybe you can share your litter box with them?

  26. We were wondering what was going on. We got a text from Madi and we know Flippy doesn't text. Maybe she has a secret phone with her? You know Warren Jeffs has secret phones in prison with him maybe she is using the same system? Mom said to tell you that when she and dad went to the Verizon store to change companies she saw a new, modern Flippy! Who knew??
