Friends on Friday - Part III of the Move

Before the Ts tell the rest of our move story we wanted to say hi to all the friends we've known from all the past years and new ones of cat blogging. As Beau Beau and Angie, it was a time for creativity and a place to make new friends. Since they have passed many life changes have happened. It's time to focus more on our newest furry friends, Tommy and Teaghan, time to renew friendships, and time to meet new ones here in blogger land.  And a special thanks for Ann at Zoolatry who helped to get us blogging again with a new header and answers to questions!

Tommy:  Where did we leave off? Oh yeah the ride from h#ll.  Teaghan sang the song of her people all the way, with a twist, singing "ma ooooh" "ma ooooh" all the way until our Meomy finally let her out of our purrison and held her on her lap. Then it was my turn on her lap except I still kept panting. 

We left in the dark and when we finally got out of the car it was dark again. We thought we were home until we got inside the new place.  It smelled like a herd of woofies and other kitties were in there.  We sniffed around and around. Where was our stuff? Where in da world were we? 

Mom and the Food Daddy told us were in a place called North Carolina. We were going to live in this condo until we went to another house. It was really warm here in Caroliney and we had a real porch to go out on so we could breathe fresh outside air and watch birdies all day!  

Teaghan:  Everything was ok once we sniffed the place out. And then we heard it. The scary noise from above. Someone was above us. Clomp clomp stomp stomp they went. Back and forth and back and forth. What kind of monster was up there? What was it? And is that the noise of a wolfie? clickity clickity clickity nails back and forth from room to room.  We ran from room to room thinking someone was going to come through the ceiling! Mom would get scared from the noise and jump up and say bad werds at the ceiling. Lots of bad werds. Werds we never heard before.

Teaghan looking up at the ceiling when the people above us were stomping around every time they went from the couch to the kitchen area.

Tommy watching the people go by from the screened in porch

Us in our bedroom so we could sleep near our humans

This was another room we played in sometimes. Usually just wanted to get our furs on it. Not too much stomping in here. Sometimes Daddy worked on his 'puter in here.

Teaghan found a nice chair to sit in and take a nap an the color matched our furs

There was a real comfortable couch here that Tommy liked. Mom and Food Daddy spent many hours sitting here reading.

Tommy kept an eye on things outside from here sometimes.

Keeping an ear and eye on the stompers above us.

The stompers (and probably the long ride) bothered Tommy so much he gotted sick. Mom and the Food Daddy had to bring him to the emergency v.e.t. cause we couldn't get in anywhere else and found out he had a UTI. He had to take medicine for a while and then he was back to his normal self, playing hide and seek with me.

Finally we settled in and just kept an ear on the clomping monsters and clicking doggies that came and went every few weeks. 

We can't tell time but Mom told us it was five and a half months we were in the condo when it was only supposed to be two months. The humans were not pleased. Then one day we had to go in the metal monster again! Oh no! Where were they taking us this time!?

To be continued for the final chapter...



  1. Meow Tommy and Teaghan, June sent me here. I would be too afraid to ride as far as you did and move into a strange place with over my head sounds. I am too shy to be seen by anyone but Lynn and the tummy rubbing man here. I will come see where in the warm you live some more. Precious

  2. WOW!! That was quite the adventure!! Mum would not be pleased in having people above us being so noisy either. Thank goodness it was a temporary stop:) Well, longer than planned temporary stop :/
    Looking forward to the next chapter in your adventure.
    Purrs, Julie

  3. All that stomping and clickety clicking must have been a nightmare for you and your humans! I am glad you were able to move on again to your permanent new home.

    1. Now the only time we hear stomping we know it's Food daddy upstairs. MOL.

  4. I can relate to all the stomping and the clickety clicking. I so remember. What an awful ride too.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. ♥

  5. That was an adventure, probably one you could have done without! Living in adjoining housing can be a nightmare if you have noisy neighbours, we know all about it. 50 out of 58 years of the biped's life have been spent in adjoining housing of one sort or another, including the current townhouse for the past 22.5 years, not that she's counting. Thin walls suck, pardon the expression.

    But it seems that all was well for you in the end! 🙂

  6. That upstairs noise sure would have had our Simon in hiding forever, not fun at all you two. You do look pretty comfy in you photos though.

  7. OMCs Tommy and Teaghan
    What a story WOW...I must go back to read the first chapters. I read about you over at June's had to come visit. Being a native of N. C. who lives in the capitol City, I wanted to officially welcome you NC. I have book marked your blog
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. I detest being in any form of housing that has strangers in it. They are never ever considerate, always horribly noisy day and nght. Because they can.

  9. Poor babies! I'm so sorry the chaos made you sick, Tommy!

  10. Sorry Tommy got sick from the ordeal. That was a long time in a strange place.

  11. You were very brave. I am sorry you got sick. I hope it never happens again.

  12. Wow, an ordeal we hope (and you, purr-ably too) will not be repeated! But we suspect you have weathered the "storm" and your Mommy will tell us all about it in the next chapter ...
