Tomorrow is the milestone day: we can start moving in to our new house. Today we bought two gallons of primer to seal in the scary pink in the bedrooms. This morning I made a temporary "cat befuddler" (modelled on those cone things they put on mooring lines to keep rats from climbing them into ships) out of an empty kitty litter container: Hattie keeps trying to climb up to the birdhouse on the pole at the corner of the NE paddock to eat the barn swallows. Bad kitty. No biscuit. I'll make a nice cone out of some old copper sheeting my dad saved from a project and mount it permanently at some point. If Hattie can climb up there, then Gimli will be up five minutes after he's let outside for the first time. The plastic thingy will do for now. I like the swallows: they eat bugs.
