Our Biggest Snoopervising Ever

GEORGE

Mom has decided to remodel the main bathroom in our house. I'm very excited about it 'cause this will be my biggest snoopervising project EVER, plus keeping myself busy makes the time go faster until Santa comes! Naturally, Max will be assisting me and here we are getting started. I'm checking Mom's spackling job and Max is seeing if there are any places she missed.

This is the list of things we'll need to do, and some have already been started

1. Tear off old wallpaper and scrape the walls - I have sniffed every piece of paper that fell on the floor to be sure it's OK to throw away. I even ran off with a few and Mom had to call out to Dad to catch me before I chewed it.

2. Spackle and sand walls to prepare for painting - We might be better off staying out of the room while this is being done, 'cause we don't want all that junk in our furs.

3. Lay new floor tiles - This is very important, 'cause this is where everyone walks and we need to be safe!

4. Put new tiles on the walls - This might be important for us 'cause we like to sit in the window and the tile will come up to right under our window. It should compliment us in any position we choose to lay.

5. Paint the walls - I really don't have a color preference here, but I do think it's important to leave a few furs on the wall while the paint is wet. I'm planning to shake myself vigorously so my furs will fly around and make a nice pattern in the fresh paint. I think the entire Crew should leave some of their furs.

6. Put in a new cabinet and attach hardware - This is very important 'cause there will be 2 more drawers to inspect.

7. Put in a new sink top - The one we have now has one sink and the new one will have two sinks. This means two of us can lay in a sink at once, but I'll still have my corner to sit on in the morning while I wait for Dad to shower.

8. Hook up new faucets - Very important for Max to get fresh water each day

9. Hang new mirrors over each sink - We cats like to check ourselves out and look our best!

10. Hook up a new light - How can you check yourself out in the dark?!

Mom and I hope to get this finished before Santa comes, but I'm not sure about that. If I get distracted even for a second, she tends to slack off, sit down and put her feet up. That way, nothing will get done!!

(sigh) I can see this is going to mean a huge cutback in my napping schedule just to keep Mom on task, but as Senior Cat here, it's my responsibility. See all you younger cats, being Senior Cat is not all perks...there's lots of work involved!!

Would yoor mom like to come over when she's done and help mom wif some tile stuff? Dad keeps saying he'll do it and he doesn't want mom to do it AT ALL so unless she gets it all done in one day he'll be, as she sez, "a big crank" about it. We say dat she should just go fur it...dad will neffur get around to doing it and she's already used to him being cranky. We would snoopervise, so dat is not a prollem.

#5. Paint the walls. Hey, textured walls are the new "matte". De rigor, as they say! Try to shed evenly, though, fer that prefeshunal look...

Good luck on the snoopervising job. Mum said she did the bathroom before she got me. But it included getting a whole new tub too.

As senior cats we have to take good care of our humans.They need us to keep them on task. You should ask your siblings to help with the furring of the walls.The blend of cat hairs will be a nice decorative touch.

I'm tired just reading all of the snoopervising responsibilities you have just taken on. Hope all goes well.

We can see you are very busy and have a lot of snoopervising to do to keep this project moving forward. Keep us posted. And if you ask for a raise, we think you should get it. That's a lot of responsibility for one cat.
