Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. As some of you know, mom made game hens for Thanksgiving and didn’t share any with us! We were really mad at her for a while. But she’s been eating the extra ones that she froze, and did finally share some with us. I can report that game hen tastes pretty much like regular chicken – that is to say, quite nommy! We’re not mad at mom anymore.
We are indoor kitties. We can’t patrol the yard itself, but we do watch carefully from the back door and scare off any intruders that show up. Mostly it’s wandering kitties coming by and they leave when we yowl at them. Well, something came in our yard at night when we were upstairs protecting mom. It must have been trying to get in the house – look what it did to the screen!
Do you see how big that hole is? Thank cat the sliding glass door was closed! Whatever it was, was no stray kitty visiting our yard. They’ve never made holes in all the 10 years mom’s had the house! This had to be something bigger and more vicious. The neighbor lady thinks it was raccoons! Now, I’ve never seen a raccoon, but they must have some awfully nasty claws to do this.
Mom had the screen fixed. She took it to Ace Hardware. She loves Ace Hardware! (They did not pay us or ask us to do a review. Mom’s just really thrilled with them.) She had them put in special pet screening that’s supposed to be harder for us to put little holes in, and had them put a grate on the outside of the door to keep away the vicious animals that shredded the screen. They did a great job!
The reason mom’s so thrilled with Ace is not only did they do a fantastic job at a reasonable price, they even delivered the door at no extra charge! Can you imagine? When mom asked them to deliver the door and they said that it would be free cuz we lived so close to the store, mom was flabbergasted. When the guy came with the door, mom expected him to just leave the door. Well, he didn’t. He carried it to the back of the house and installed it just to be nice! It wasn’t prearranged or expected. You could have knocked mom over with a feather when that happened. Mom had called another place first and they wanted over twice as much to fix the screen and deliver and install it. That’s why mom took it to Ace. She figured it was worth doing the taking the door out and putting it back part herself to save the difference.
Well, either the intruder hasn’t been back, or the grate works because there’s no tears in the new screen. Let’s hope it stays that way.
That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!
