This past two weeks have been interesting. My master bedroom was flooded. The cats kept bugging me and I thought they were just out of food and it would wait until morning. The woke me up every few minutes all night long. I didn't listen when I should have. By morning all of the master bedroom, closet and master bathroom were flooded. After four days of removing water and drying the carpet things are back to normal again. It was a stressful time for the cats and for me. LIttle One does not take change well. He has not settled down to everything yet. Any loud noise, any change in schedule and Little One hides under the bed and is terrified. Hopefully he will relax and settle down. Nothing really bothers Ditto. Ditto sleeps though anything.
