Close-Up Sunday Selfies

We are up close today as we hop along with you all:)
 We set our timer and then we hunkered down to await the 'click'!







                        


We have had only a dusting of snow, but...OMC! The poor furs and their peeps who live where that blizzard called Jonah is walloping about and lashing out with all its snowy fury. Yikes!

We hope evfurry one there will be safe and stay warm as they hunker down to wait it out.

Pawppy has furmily and furends in that area...we will try to call them to check on them.

We had to hunker down ourselves on Friday.
Early in the morning, there was stomping of feet that we did not recognize on our back steps...that can only mean trouble in our minds...so we ran off and hid.

They made lots of noise in the kitchen md even more in the bathroom.OMC!
They stole the kitchen faucet...really?? But now there is another one there, Phew, we can still get water:) And its quieter in there, too...the old tap was dripping and a few times it even dared to spray water in the faces of meowmy & pawppy, MOL!! One night meowmy heard a crack, and then she had to really work hard to get the tap shut off...a ring had broken...sheesh...good riddance then.
They hope this new one will serve them fur many water filled years:)

Then meowmy and pawppy had to scramble and take evfurrything out of the pantry.OMC! What a way to have to do the so called spring cleaning...it was forced upon them:) That is the only way those intruders could get at the pipes and stuff that serve the water to the bathroom...oh the joys of living in an old (1907), farm house...sigh...
Those dudes put their dirty boots all over the bathroom floor, and even left prints inside the tub, wow. They had to take apart the faucet in the tub...it was dripping and dripping and making our water pump work way too often. So now the electric bill should improve. We don't have a water bill, cause we have a well, out here in these rural parts.
Then...and its a good thing we have litter boxes, they stole the toilet...took it right out of our den and said it was going to the toilet graveyard...sheesh, after all those years of good service? It was stamped inside with 1948 as the time of its birth...should it not have gone to a toilet museum instead?? Pawppy said no way was he going to put it in the garden as a planter, MOL!!
That old monster toilet was running so much that it was going to run away right out the den said meowmy one day. so now there is a new potty in there! Sparkling and white:) And it flushes with a big whoosh, and then there is silence! OMC!! No more runaway potties, MOL!!

OK, now Meowmy has to go to work, so we hope you all have a wunderfur  Sunday!
We are blog-hopping with The Cat On My Head, who are the hosts of the Sunday Selfies.

    1. Well, they didn't leave too much of a mess, but the peeps had to put it all back together again...that took longer than getting it all out:)

  4. Great selfies. It sounds like you have all new plumbing throughout your house now- that is good. That old toilet did last a long time. I understand the joys of country living- I like having a well except when the power goes out. And I hate dirty footprints all over the house, but I guess we can't make plumbers take their boots off.

    1. Yes, we are all plumbed purr-purr-ly now...We have an automated generator so when the power does go off, it kicks in after 30 seconds. And we have a hand pump attached to the well so we can get water the old fashioned way if need be...hopefurly not ever (need to do that).

  5. Your selfies were fabulous
    but....
    what an adventure your M&P had. Oh no.
    Home ownership is ... hard on our peeps.
    We are glad all is repaired and working great.
    Happy Sunday Selfie

    1. Yes and since our den is ancient and rather rickety it seems to have sessions of major breakdowns ...if not this then it will be that...sigh...but the peeps say they are used to that.But um...the pockets feel it worse...at least there is plenty of noms stocked up:))

  6. Our humans know the "joys" of an old house. Though ours is in the city, it was built is 1912, and there is always something that needs fixing. Mom wishes when they put a new toilet in the first floor bath that they had kept the old one. She says the one they got is terrible. Anyhoo...we think your selfies today are total purrfection. Thanks so much for joining the happy hoppy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

      Sometimes we hear meowmy say the best hope fur this old den is a bulldozer, OMC!!
      But...oh well; its our home!!

      Toilets these days can be the pits we hear...so far our new one lives up to its name 'Avalanche', MOL! (There are others with even sillier names, OMC!!)

  8. We've been very lucky with the snow this season so far; or unlucky depending on your point of view.
    We heard about your plumbing projects from MJF. How long did you have to stay in hiding? I would probably have been locked in ghostwriter's office the entire time, barking like crazy!

    1. We had to hide about 5 hours...dog guy was allowed access and he snoopervised...he only barked at the onset, then he ignored them and napped...only getting up to see what they were doing if they had to go outside to get something from their truck, or go downstairs to the water supply lines...

    1. Thank mew!

      Did you all have to hide too? Meowmy says one of our now angel kitties would always try to investigate any intruders; by sniffing their hair, and getting into their toolboxes, and so on, OMC!!

  15. WE KNOW! Our human brother's girlfriends' brother (uh, our head kinda spun at that) said he had about a metre of snow (he's from Australia so he talks in metres an' stuffs). Jonah was a whale of a storm! (our mom made us say that)!
