Let the Panic Begin!

We're moving tomorrow and you know what? The humans aren't even ready for it. According to the Mom, the bedroom needs a minimum of one coat of paint, no blinds have been put up, and they still haven't cleaned the new house yet. On top of that, I don't think they've packed one box of stuff yet.

The Mom isn't too worried about that last part. Since she sprained her ankle, she decided to have the movers pack up all the stuff. Oh I feel sorry for them. There are places in the apartment where boxes have sat for the 3+ years we've been here that must be covered with a good inch coating of dust and cat hair. Even that thought scares me. The Mom did say if the workers did a good job and didn't complain she'll give them a good tip. She is good that way.

Speaking of the Mom, her ankle is getting worse. This week has been hard on her. If she wasn't already working a 12 hour day (a good portion of that is on her feet), what little free time she's had has been spent painting the new place. When she came home from teaching last night, she looked utterly fried. I'm starting to worry about her. Of course she tried to humor me and say things will be better after we move. I hope so. That damn air cast came a little too close to my tail more than once.

I'll update you all either tomorrow night or Sunday to let you know how everything went. At least the humans were smart enough to get the broadband access hooked up first.

I feel really sorry for your Mom. Teaching is hard enough without hurting all the time. I hope your move goes smoothly and you like the new place.

Beans work too hard, and look where it gets them. You don't see many cats in air casts, coming home frazzled, or moving by choice. We are here to teach them to RELAX. I fink yur mom needs a refresher.
On the bright side, there are plenty of cats there to help the movers! Your snoopervision will save the day.

Moving is a furry stressful fing. Make sure you gets the proper amount of stinky goodness to stay healthy. An make sure you stay out of Mom's way so she don't trip ofur you and give her ankle more owies.

I hate moving. I bet we do it again a couple more times, because that's how horrible my people are. I hope this is your last move.

Your poor Mom! You'll have to take good care of her during the move. It's a good thing the movers will do so much of the packing. At least that's what my Mom says 'cuz I haven't had to go through a move yet.
