It’s Zaturday, the day we (Ziggy and Zorro) take over Mommy’s blog!
Our house has really been a busy place lately. Mommy decided to remodel another room. This time she tore up the living room. Fortunately, she had us stay downstairs while most of the work was going on, because it was really noisy. Ziggy and I don’t like noise, unless we’re the ones making it. Like when we run up and down the stairs when Mommy and Daddy are trying to sleep, and they say we sound like a herd of elephants. We’re not sure what elephants are. Maybe they’re like cats but bigger.
Anyhow, they finally let us come back upstairs when they were finishing the room. All while they were working, the house was a mess. Furniture was piled up in the dining room and the music room. But Ziggy and I still found a comfy place to sleep.
When Daddy finished painting the window sill, I thought it would be fun to get up there and walk around on it. When Mommy came back into the room a while later, this is what the floor looked like:
She didn’t know who did it, so first she checked Ziggy’s paws. No paint. Then she picked me up. Guess what she found. Yep, white paint on my paws. I couldn’t deny it when the evidence was right there.
Mommy scrubbed the paw prints off of the wood floor but wanted to leave them in the paint on the window sill. She said it’s like when parents have their kids put their hand prints in wet cement, and we’re sort of like her kids. Daddy didn’t think that was a good idea, but he hasn’t gotten around to sanding and repainting yet. I kind of hope he leaves my paw prints there.
Now the work is all done. We really like the new room. Ziggy and I have lots of fun chasing each other from one end to the other and sliding on the new wood floor. There’s even a fireplace. On cold days, Mommy and Daddy put a fire in there to keep us warm. Lately it’s been too warm for a fire, but we still like to hang out in there.
Well, I gotta go. It’s time to see what other trouble I can get into.

Certainly glad Zorro didn’t get into too much trouble with prints on the windowsill. Having two rambunctious 11 year old cats (who don’t like a lot of noise either), I can completely understand. They didn’t like it much when I replaced an old carpet in a few rooms downstairs with laminate flooring. Lots of noise and commotion, too. Then, they had to learn how to run on the new floor without sliding paws first into a wall. They’ve got it down pretty good now. Thanks for sharing that, Carol.
Hi Tim. Yours sound like fun, too! They can be pretty entertaining on those slick floors. I dropped something the other day and startled Zorro, and I think he spun out for two or three seconds before he got traction!
A busy house with two black cats makes for a happy home!
It sure does! They are quite entertaining!
