Under Construction

Yesterday our maintenance man, Eddie, knocked on our door and said that a leak in the underground parking garage here was coming from a pipe in the wall of our bedroom.   So he cut a hole and could feel wet.  :(
 
So Minchie stood guard while Eddie went to the condo upstairs to make sure the leak wasn't coming from there.  No such luck!  :(

 So Eddie cut an even bigger hole up higher and found the pipe that was leaking.  He said it probably was leaking for years due to the building settling.  :(

So, Minchie is checking things out getting ready to snoopervise Eddie today while he replaces the pipe.  He will also tape cardboard around the holes so Mr. Curious doesn't try to take a tour of the inside walls.  Then he will come back next week to replace the drywall when he sees that the leaking has stopped.  Eddie really likes Minchie, who helps him with all the a/c preventative maintenance and other repairs we need done.

Anyone who has seen pictures of Mom's bedroom knows how obsessed she is with Marie from the movie "The Aristocats".  Well, they are all packed up in plastic bags until this project is finished.

Please keep your paws crossed this stops the leaking or who knows what will happen next!

  3. We're sure Minchie will make sure that there is no time wasting while the leak is being repaired and he will be a first class snoopervisor.

  4. That is SUCH a drag! Sorry you have to go through this. However, we are glad Minchie is fascinated with the repair guy instead of being frightened.

  13. Mom Paula has seen those Marie kitties first hand.

    That hole in the wall is making us nervous. We hope it gets fixed soon.

  14. That hole in the wall looks like a wonderful place to explore--Maybe if you push really hard, you can knock that cardboard out of the way and enter. If that doesn't work, trying biting around the edges. Believe me, exploring inside walks is a blast!

  16. Can't believe your human had to pack up all those Marie's to get the pipe repaired. So glad it didn't leak from the wall onto the Maries. Have fun with your snoopervising. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
