Fire in the Kitchen

Last Sunday a furry scary thing happened. Our water heater caught on fire. Mommy called the fire department, grabbed Midi and shooed us all out of the house. Then the firefighters arrived on a big red truck with sirens and red and blue flashing lights.. There were four of them. They wore shiny helmets and glowing yellow jackets.They looked like creatures from outer space On each of their backs they wore a silver cylinder. One of them sprayed white foamy stuff all over our water heater and made the flames go away. Then they brought fans to clear the smoke and smell. After that they tested the air to see if it was safe to go back in.
I watched from under a bush til the truck left. It was huge and noisy. When Mommy called we all went back in. One of the firefighters, a woman, hated cats. The other guys had teased her about it.But Mommy told her she was glad she had cats. When the heater caught on fire there was a boom and a sizzle. She thought one of us knocked something over in the kitchen and went to investigate. If she hadn't we all could have been hurt by the flames or made sick by the smoke. And she thought it wsas funny that someone who would run into a burning building was freaked out by a bunch of kitties.
We're all okay now. We had a new water heater installed today. Mommy stil lis jumpy. Every time she hears a noise in the kitchen she runs to investigate.And she feels bad that the firefighters saw her messy house.
What a way to end the old year...

Cat Scratch Fever

Hi! Midi here. We're back. Mommy got a used computer. It's really nice.
Hopefully we'll be able to post more often. Righjt now we just want to say how sorry we are that Mary Catherine Davis, Beau's Mommt is no longer with us. We hope Beau finds a good home with a fellow cat blogger so we can know how he's doing. It's hard when humans go away. I still really miss Granny & Grampy.
We also want to send prayers and get well wishes to ML. Cat bites can be really serious injuries. Granny once got attacked by a stray cat and came down with cat scratch fever. She wound up in the emergency room. Muffin felt really bad because the stray cat was terrorizing him through the glass door and Granny had gone out to chase it away. Granny didn't blame him, though. We hope ML improves on the new medicine and doesn't need an operation.
Wheek! Wheek!
