Friday is Monster Day……


Happy Friday Fans!   It’s cleaning day around here – you know that means the monster will come out of the closet in a little bit so I’m hurrying to get my blog done before the noise begins.

I wonder why someone hasn’t invented a SILENT vacuum cleaner?  As smart as humans think they are (haha) it seems like someone would have figured that one out.  I know a lot of cats and dogs who agree with me…..WHERE’S THE MUFFLER???????????????  We actually have TWO monsters in our house…..since we have three floors, we have an older vacuum on the top floor so Mom doesn’t have to drag the big noisy monster up to that floor – pretty cool huh?   I think Mom and Dad wish they’d gotten more wood floors in the house when they built it (before my time!) instead of all the wall to wall carpet.  I like the carpet myself  but I guess it’s harder to take care of.  I don’t run around here quite as much as I used to, but back in my younger days I’d be tearing around the house and got good traction on the carpet but when I’d hit a patch of wood floor (like in the foyer) I’d slide!  When I was a kitten once I slid right into the front door and smashed my poor nose……….doesn’t take too many of those accidents to learn where to run and where to walk carefully!!  I’m no dummy…………..

So I guess in our next house (Mom and Dad keep promising me that screened porch in the next place!), we’ll have more wood floors and less carpet.  Now that I’m older and spend more time takin’ it easy, that shouldn’t be a problem….AND of course that means the MONSTER won’t be making an appearance every week either. 
BRING ON THE WOOD FLOORS!!! (and the screened porch)  🙂
