AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

Our Florida vacation with our cats Nozee and Buddy.

When we got to the new campsite in Zephyrhills, Fl on 2-25 the office was closed and they didn’t leave any lot numbers where we could set up. Coming down stairs from the office, my honey took a spill. I waved down a resident who kindly helped me get him up. Good thing I brought a lot of Band-Aids with us. He got several scrapes and bruised his ribs. In my haste I had left the motor home door open. When I turned around I saw that Buddy was out and was headed under the Infirmary (motor home). I managed to grab his tail before he got underneath and got him back in the Infirmary. Thanks to the residents and the maintenance department we finally got our paperwork from the office. A little later we noticed Nozee didn’t come out when I put the cat food down. Thinking he may have escaped too we went back down to the office where I called and called him without response. Back the Infirmary I searched every nook and cranny for him finally finding, him (quite comfy) in a bottom drawer. He wasn’t a bit disturbed by the situation. This cat can get himself into or behind anything.

Earlier in the trip, Buddy who weighs 20lbs got stuck under the sofa bed. He was able to get in at gap at the top of the sofa by gravity but couldn’t get out. The previous owner of the RV had stuffed the pull out strap that opens the sofa inside where it couldn’t be reached. My honey was finally able to pull the bottom panel out far enough that Buddy could squeeze out. Whew. More cat and other tails (tales) later.

At least we had two whole weeks of summer before returning to winter.
