Oh Yeah, It's That Time Again

That's was the day.  This morning Kitty looked like this....

And then I got out this....

And removed a little of this..........

And endured a little bit of this.

It actually went very well.  Kitty was less than thrilled, but fairly cooperative. That wasn't so bad now was it Kitty?

I think this picture communicates pretty well how Kitty feels about it.


  1. is that a cookstove behind kitty? - would love to see a picture of the whole thing. Thanks

  2. It is a wood cookstove. We bought it right before we got married but have never had it hooked up. We just use it for decoration. I will post a photo soon.
