Out Of Reach

Originally uploaded by catscluttercrafts
Our house has been an unhappy cat house lately. My crazy psycho cat decide to climb up my husband's show display and nap here. Hoping we wouldn't be able to reach her! This is in our 2nd kitchen, the apartment kitchen that will one day be the main kitchen. Right now it's part kitchen/room where everything gets stored!
We have fleas! It really sucks and I don't wish it upon anyone. I guessing the free fabric had a few and that's where they came from because they are all upstairs. Which is where the fabric is. Thankfully our house is big enough that I can section off portions so the cats are downstairs and have minimal flea problems. Unlike when they were upstairs and I would comb Luna and I would be combing 50 fleas off her at a time.
I found a great website that is helping get rid of them here. I'm going to try the lemon thing today. I am using a chemical when the kids are in bed. To kill the fleas and eggs. When they go away this weekend I plan on striping their beds and spraying everything too. The trick with the night light and soapy water really does work. I've caught fleas, fruit flies and mosquitoes! Nothing like reducing the bug population in my house! Yikes!

Hmmm, tell me more about this project. I feel I have not been keeping up to date with you as I should be. So, you own and you're renovating? Converting from two units to one? What are you up to overthere?

Actually it's a huge almost Queen Anne house that was split in the downstairs to contain an apartment. Bedroom, family room and a kitchen with a dining area plus the bathroom. After our last tenant we just couldn't put up with taking a risk of getting another crazy person. So we torn down the wall in our bathroom the apartment kitchen and our foyer the tenant bedroom. I should post a layout of the house because there will be many renovations in the next 10 years. But 1st it had better be my closet!
