TuesdayTile Tale


Oliver tile guy  had to take the door down last Friday to lay the tile.    Before he left, mom asked him if he could put it up? 


He said no because he could not stand on freshly mudded tiles to rehang the door.  Mom said well we have a cat. Oliver seems like a nice enough guy and he didn't smell too bad....BUTT evidently he knows NUTTIN' absolutely NUTTIN. about cats.   He said oh, no worries she isn't heavy enough to disturb the tiles if she walks on them.   Mom told him she was concerned about all the debris in the tub from demo etc.  and the pieces of trash on the floor.  Because she knew I'd be in there lickety split sniffing stuff.  Oliver said oh ok I can lay the door on it's side across the opening.   Picture this in your mind's eye, a 3' wide door on its side to keep Moi out of a 7' tall opening.  



Mom about cracked up.   She told Oliver my cat could jump that blindfolded.  He seemed a tad surprised.  He ended up standing door against the frame.  
Purrsonally I think in his mind he was quite impressed with my potential jumping abilities. 

Mom knew I wouldn't eat anything but she also knew  me and my sniffer would be in there in a flash smelling things..  She was worried I'd  inhale trash.

After it was all said and done I told mom I was a tad insulted I  NEVER INHALE!!!


Oh this is the floor behind the door.  There is no potty in there or a vanity..just a tub and the walls have to be painted.  Hopefully sometime this week.  We like the way Oliver laid the tiles too.

  7. Silly Oliver. thinking that door on it's side would keep you out. That is just a challenge to get in there. That tile is just terrific.

  8. Oliver definitely does not know cats at all.

    Love the tile on the diagonal. Yes, the tile mastiff has to be completely dry and cure for at least 24 hours before walking on it. Otherwise, it will pop the tile loose on the floor.

  14. Oliver did a wonderful job, he should have just listened to your mom in the first place cos moms are always right. By the way madi did I tell you mom painted the kitchen floor on sunday and once it was almost dry she realized she used wall paint instead of floor paint, that she had grabbed the wrong can, you would not want her working at your house. keep oliver. stella rose

  25. You are so funny, Madi! I'm glad you never inhale. :-) I agree--apparently he doesn't know much about cats.

  26. Madi, our mom doesn't like home repairs and renos either because like you, we would be all over the stuff. When we were having some painting done, the workers left their ladder and equipment and I crawled all over that stuff...and climbed the ladder. ~Wally
