Today - Sarg and I had a battle.

Over the last few weeks I've noticed that Sarg has being trying to hump me - my arm to be more specific. It only ever happens when eric is not home. I've decided - since he is spayed- that he is maybe trying to show his dominance over me. and that is NOT going to happen. My friend kirstyn, local cat expert, told me that cats show dominance to each other by biting the back right in front of the tail. So i've been pinching this area every time sarg starts his buisness. It stops him at the time but it hasn't stopped the behaviour entirely...

i felt like sarg and I really had to have it out - so i did... i played cat with him and beat him up over and over pinching his back and swatting him....

I think I won.

I hope this is the end.

My New Addiction....

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

sometimes my cat scares me....

So Sargent Pepper is obessed with soft things - eric's baby clothes, soft knit sweaters, blankets... etc. Since moving in, we've noticed that Sarg has a particular obsession with the office closet. It has a few boxes in it and we didn't think much of it. one time eric noticed a whole bunch of small fluffs in the room and decided to investigate what sarg was doing in the closet. It turned out he had been stashing eric's old baby clothes, blankets, hats, etc. and a few of my sweaters from boxes in the basement. He dragged them up and hid them in the closet!!!

The other day sarg came into our room in the morning and I noticed that he smelt like downstairs - which smells different then upstairs. I didn't think much of it until i turned the light on to go downstairs later that morning... again sarg had worked all night dragging our stuff back out of the boxes and into a big pile at the bottom of the stairs!

Now the Inside....

Yard Work!

This yard was in REALLY bad shape when we moved in! Weeds overgrowing EVERYTHING, all the bushes were overgrown, and garbage! My mother-in-law came over yesterday and we worked all day on the yard. I wish I would have taken a before and after, it is a HUGE improvement. I'm going to be planting some perenials in the fall, so for now the planters are a little bare... but I don't even care at least bare means no weeds! Here are some pictures... Oh ya and Eric cleaned out the eavestrophs that were horrifically rotting and stinky... that was the grossest job of the day. Thanks SO MUCH Mum S!

I realize that it has been quite awhile since I last posted, and I apologize to all you that have been waiting for a post. All I have to say is - Look I moved - IT'S BEEN BUSY! I will be photographing the house and then posting pictures so all those who are too far away to visit can have a look.

A few updates:

Sgt Pepper has had a difficult time adjusting to his new surroundings. He is very jumpy and shys away from people who come to visit. Although, he has been less insane which we appreciate.

We had a number of helpers for the move so it went VERY smoothly and we were done by the early afternoon.

The morning did not go so smoothly.... the keys we received did not work in any of the doors and eric had to boost me up through a window....

We have cable...shh don't tell anyone but it's still hooked up from the previous owners!

We have very few phone jacks in the house, and telus had to come and put some more in for us.

We've had people over everyday since we've moved. (and my sister every morning....)

It is so nice to be so much closer to family. Everyone is a walk away.

I'm enjoying the comforts of a home - backyard, garage, easy grocery access
