There was a funny thing that happened earlier in the week that I didn’t mention. I think I’ve written that a while back I got one of those automatic carpet sweeping robots for upstairs. The cats are wary of it but not as much as they are of the vacuum.
It has a mode where you can have it run on a timer, but I have not set it to do that as my upstairs is so complicated the little thing often gets stuck off in a corner if nobody is around, so I would have to chase it down regardless.
One morning I was awake but not up, and the robot started up on its own. Its home base is near one of the fountains, and one of the cats – Calla or Gus – must have stepped on top and hit the activation button.
Those two were in the room for sure and I saw them giving the stink eye to the robot as it puttered around the room.
A day or so later someone kicked at the other fountain upstairs and made it spill some water. I’m not sure who did that one.
It is a bit strange how after months or even years (for the fountains) they are getting stepped on this week.
Julie might have been the culprit for the fountain…hard to say.
