Hot day today! Some more flopped out cats.

It’s been hot with high humidity all day. Even Murli didn’t stay on the balcony and went inside at 10am already. She’s been up on the fridge all afternoon. I found out that there is a slightly cool spot right in the middle at the top of the fridge. So that smart girl found that out at some point, which is why she’s always up there when she feels hot.

Even Samantha likes to be near the fridge and she enjoys Murlis big cat bed. Though Samantha likes to move around a bit more and changes her sleeping spot repeatedly.

Sonic moves around as well and changes his sleeping spot constantly throughout the day. Especially when it’s hot, he likes to simply be flopped out somewhere. It’s his favourite position when it’s hot.

Here is a of photos of him flopping all over the place. Some of the pics are from earlier in the summer, but most of them are recent.

After Murli has been on the fridge for most of the day, she’s just gone on the balcony again. It’s almost 7pm now and still hot outside, although less than during the day of course.

Murli is herself all flopped out now…

Cute Cat Lady Stuff
I’m enjoying working on my crochet Cat Curtain for the living room. Once I have a bit more of the cats, I’ll post my progress. I just love doing it. It’s relaxing! I especially enjoy doing it while I listen to podcasts on my phone, sitting outside on the balcony.

Something else I wanted to share are those cute things:

and a kitty wind chime above the balcony door…

I love wind chimes! When I saw this one on Amazon back in 2018, I had to get it for our home. It’s lovely when I hear the chime when a breeze comes through. It’s been difficult to photograph because it’s so high up. The chime is hanging in front of the top window that’s above the balcony door.

There is a lot of Catlady stuff throughout our home… But it makes me happy seeing those cute things around lol.

WordPress Premium
In case you’ve seen the way my blog looks, with the new background and colours changed, that’s because I have finally decided to get WordPress Premium. The reason I did that was to be able to monetize the blog. It would be crazy awesome to be able to earn a little bit with blogging. I want to get into blogging a lot more and it would be wonderful if I can add a tiny bit of income with it. No matter how small, everything counts.

Yet another unexpected update regarding the bathroom/wet walls problem
Today a contractor from the company that will fix everything rang our doorbell. We didn’t expect anyone today, but I guess he was having a look at everything outside. He asked to have a look at the shower tap and shower wall. Of course, there’s nothing to be seen, but I explained to him what the other contractor found out.

He told me that they will come by again soon to decide how to go about fixing everything. Because apparently, they do want to get into the wall now to look at the pipe. On the other side of our shower tap is the back of the communal toilet in the hallway. And it’s that wall that is quite wet. That wall can’t be seen at all by anyone, except the people using the toilet, which are two people. I never knew what it looked like in there until the contractor showed me.

Thankfully we have our own toilet IN our apartment and also thankfully, our toilet is not wet and won’t have to be messed with.

Something has been going on there for a long time and I guess they just want to have a proper look at it all and fix it all for good.

He said they will come by at first to decide if they are ripping into the wall from the side of the communal toilet, or if they go in from our side in the shower. If they go in on our side, it means a much bigger construction site for us and tiles being removed and everything. Which is a shame, since it’s looking really nice. I love the tiles we have…

If they have to rip out the whole shower including basin and everything, then we’ll have them put in a new shower. The new shower would be paid by us anyway. The reason we would have it changed then is that the shower basin currently has no proper foundation/support underneath. As it is now, it will break completely anyway at some point. You can feel it is a bit bouncy, because the shower basin kind of just hangs in the air, for the most part, only supported at the edge probably.

Whoever did the installation of the shower and shower tap long before us, probably wasn’t a proper professional. Thankfully they’re all professionals from proper companies now. So things will be done properly.

Of course, being me, I got a refill of anxiety after hearing about having to have a construction site in our bathroom after all. But Ralph got me calmed down again, talking about how there isn’t really anything to worry about and how I should just let them get on with it, doing their jobs and then it’s over with and how it’s a good thing if they fix everything. We also don’t have to pay for that fix either, since the landlord’s insurance pays for it.

Like I wrote in my post yesterday, somebody from the landlord’s insurance company is coming tomorrow morning to also have a look at everything and measure the humidity in all the walls.

I just hope nobody tried to call me today because there’s a massive outage on Magenta Telekom’s network. Magenta T. belongs to T-Mobile. Nobody on that network had cellphone reception since the early morning. No calls or text and no internet on cellphones. But thankfully the normal internet modem works fine. It’s just the cellphones for some reason. I can’t remember there ever being such a big outage. It’s all of Austria. Not that I care all that much, since it feels actually nice to know that nobody can call me, which means I can’t get any calls regarding the bathroom/wet wall problem, which would only feed my anxiety again lol.

The title in the image below translates to: “Map of Magenta’s outages/problems”

Underneath it translates to: “The last reported problems mostly came from: …”

Outage areas for the Magenta (T-Mobile) outage. The only white area is where the big mountains of the alps are lol. No cell reception up there anyway.

So we’ll see what comes out of the appointment with the man from the insurance company tomorrow. I’ll keep you all updated.

Thank you all so very much for your wonderful and kind comments on yesterdays post! All of you are always so sweet to me! Love you all! 💕🙋😻😻😻💕

February 25, 2017 Caturday

Happy Caturday furends!

This week was as usual for us. But my iphone suddenly stopped working right. I just had no reception anymore. Wifi was working fine, but I had no reception otherwise. I had that iphone for over 4 years and just recently it fell to the ground for the first time in all that time. So I guess that’s what caused it. Having it fixed would cost more than actually getting a new phone. And so I did. Thankfully it’s not expensive to get a new phone, because I had a lot of points collected (that you can use to get a new phone) and I had my plan extended for another two years. That way I didn’t really have to pay much to get a new iPhone. Like with all the phones I ever had, I’ll keep this one until it doesn’t work anymore as well.

There it is! And yay!!! It makes such nice pics! They turn out totally pawsome. Now I can take much more detailed photos of Murli. Lol yes, I use a  little”hello kitty” bag for my phone. Did it with the last one too. It’s great because it’s soft and also protects it from the freezing cold in winter.

Murli and I had a really sleepy Friday. I had to take my migraine med (Frovatriptan) at 4am in the morning, because of a beginning migraine. I woke up again later without pain, but as you know, those meds make me tired for the rest of the day.

The funny thing is… Everytime I feel more tired for whatever reason, Murli seems to nap more as well. As if she wants to join me in my sleepy laziness, or feels emphatically? Anyway, we hung out in front of the TeeVee a lot more than usual and napped all afternoon lol.

The scratch Murli gave herself above her right eye healed nicely, But the fur hasnt grown back fully yet. You can see it in the picture. She doesn’t have much fur in that area anyway, and if she’s been scratching there for a bit, she’ll rip the bit of fur out she has and it’s instantly obvious. The area above her left eye (at the bottom) is normal. Not much fur as you can see. But it makes for the cutest mimic ever when she looks at you. It has a similar effect as eyebrows have in humans. Love my unique girl!💗

It was warm enough on Thursday to leave the window open for a few hours in the afternoon. Wont be that long anymore until she can hang out at the open windows all day. She was watching some birdie that sat right above the window.

The only other thing worth mentioning is that I couldn’t help ordering some new mousies with her regular food order this month lol. At that online pet supply I order from, you collect points with every purchase, that you can use for things. I usually get new toys for Murli lol. Like she hasn’t enough stuff already, but I don’t care. I love to see her happy❤❤❤

She loves that new mousie! (A whole pack of them came, but I don’t get all of them out at once) Murli zoomed through the home with her mousie, pawing it everywhere. She loves it! I think that bright green color is pawsome. We like colorful things!

I will close for now, as I’m already getting tired again (had another migraine today, but it wasn’t too bad). That’s why this post is written like a quick note lol. My brain isn’t running properly. Have a lovely Caturday evening all of you! 💕💕💕
