Daily Photo: Cleaning Day

five black cats
Cleaning day!

Stacks of boxes! big chunks of paper! twine! packing peanuts! it’s all going out the door! Wet floors and noise! She’s gone crazy! Better get out of her way or she’ll be tossing us out too!

Yes, time to clean up after the holidays, and the kids are losing all their improvised toys. It’s not as if they don’t have plenty of official toys! Except, of course, Mewsette’s precious works of cardboard art.

It’s good to do an inventory and put things away, though, all the stacks of boxes of merchandise and packing materials. It took lots of kitty toes to keep track of how many cards and garden flags and calendars are left, and as much as we all wanted to get started on new things, we had to get the place under control.

Not the best photo, above, but I was running the sweeper when I saw the big eyes and looks of horror and all of them clustered on the cabinet for safety!

      Georgia and Julie, they could have easily gone upstairs! They just like to keep an eye on me.
