Excitement is running high around the house this morning. Phase I of the home-improvement project is finally in place. I bring you: The Screen Door.
The first – and I do mean first, the very first – thing Bugs did was this:
So that’s what the scratchpost is there for. I had to pick him up and put him on top there.
Woo. It’s a long way down there.
So how long you bet it’s gonna be, before lifting is no longer needed?
I wonder how high I can get.
Notice my excellent glute technique.
I can do 25 of these before I get tired.
Flying object! I need it!
Bean says here’s where she was devoutly glad for this:
Notice, in addition to the hook, the extra-added iron bars.
Now here’s where Bean wishes she had instant reflexes and sound effects. She was in the kitchen when she heard this:
::YERRRRWWOAHWWWWWWW – [CRASH!!!]::
By the time she raced over, all that could be seen was the back end of the neighbor’s cat.
As for the back end of the drama Himself, here it is:
Too late with the visual. No way does this convey the real high urgency of the thing.
P.S.: Later today, the handyguy is coming back to install the finishing touches. Before any of you think to remind me, I already have figured this out: That hook is going higher. Way higher. No. Wait. Two hooks. One high, one low.
P.P.S.: I think Bugs actually hurt his face, throwing himself at the door in this incident. Oh my little brave boy.
