Whew. Then I vacuumed with the stick and the hand held and got a good 99% of the litter and the red tinsel from that toy out of there. Another Whew.
Then I went into the sewing room to make the collars. Guess who followed me??? They inspected every single bit of the room... very carefully.
And while I was working, all on their own, they found the litter box cupboard and used it!!! The box (and spare litter and a container to scoop used litter into) are all in what looks like a blanket chest. It has an entryway on the side. Very nice and tidy. And now they know where it is. So I swapped the put the big litter box they have been using into the cupboard and put the smaller one into the bathroom. I'll give them a few more days and hopefully, they'll forget about the one in the bathroom. And then I can reclaim the whole room.
Their collars now have two bells. I think Biggie's may be too big yet. He's gotten his teeth caught on the bell ring once. If it happens again, I'll take it down a notch but I'd like to give them room to grow.
Biggie's is blue.
And The Smalls got neon orange/pink.
So far only Biggie had been on the top of the cat tree. But while he had his back turned a bit ago, The Smalls made a beeline. Biggie saw that action and tried to remedy. FAIL.
Now they've taken off again for the bedroom or where-ever. Another private meeting, I guess.
Meanwhile, I made two kinds of pimento cheese - one plain and one with olives and a kick. And I made potato salad and OMG that potato salad is FiNE. Had some for lunch.
Now I need to clean up the kitchen. I don't know what time Frank's coming over. I don't even know if he's working today or not. Doesn't matter I'm ready for whatever and have plenty to keep me off the streets until then. Plus, kitten entertainment.
