Woes Я Us

Hello Kitties,
We are so sorry to have basically disappeared from your comment pages, and even from our own blog half the time! There's been a lot of stuffs happening here and while none of it is earth-shattering, the cumulative impact has thrown me and the Human into a deep funk. The problems include computer woes, car woes, health woes (Human and Feline, mostly of the very- irritating-though-not-very-serious sort), a hideous heat-wave, and, maybe worst of all, a bedbug infestation in our building that spread to our apartment (::shudder::), a nightmare of the First Order and with which we are still in the midst of dealing.
So don't give up on us. We expect by Halloween we'll be in the Pink again. Oh pleeeeeze! Thanks for sticking around even though we have been so absent. You're the best!

Oh noes, that is all very awful! Would sending Caroline help at all, because you know I would do that in a heartbeat for you, bud. (But really, if there's anything my mom can do, please let us know!)

Pat Hatt said...

wow that sounds like a lot of crap, and bed bugs, ewww, kill those suckers quick. Dia Earth supposedly kills the suckers if you can't get rid of them, just fyi. But can't be breathed by human or cat.

The Indulged Furries said...

Spitty, you and your human have your paws & hands fully. I hope all is well soon, especially getting rid of the vermin bedbugs.

Megan said...

Thanks for letting us know. All of those relatively minor irritations at once can really get you down, so hang in there. Celebrate the positive steps forward, even if they're only little ones. Look after yourselves. It will all come good - eventually.

Holy carp! Bed bugs?? That doesn't sound good at all.

Catio Tales said...

But dude you are King, you can command a few little pesky insects, right ? Okay, I am being told that is not possible as bed bugs are like our mosquitoes only indoors. And not flying. *shudder* We hope all is sorted REALLY DAMN FAST as this is no good for you nor the Human. Take it easy dude and try not to stress.

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Sending purrs, to you and your human. We hope things get sorted quick, fast, and in a hurry. Don't worry about blogville until you get things straightened out. Good luck!
XOXO

::SHUDDERS::

(can "she" light a few candles to drive them out? LOL)

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

OMC, bedbugs?! How horrible! Not to mention all the other stuff. But, ugh, bedbugs - my human is feeling all itchy and twitchy now.

meowmeowmans said...

Aw, jeez, that's terrible, Spitty. Especially the part about the bedbugs! We hope everything gets straightened out real soon. We lub you!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

BEDBUGS?

Spitty dealing, I am now forbidden to cuddle with you...

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

Bedbugs! Yuck! We've been there, and it is nasty. We love the fact that the bug people come around and spray often. Try diatomaceous earth. It is the only thing that has worked in our building, really, for bedbugs, although the bug guys try. That earth stuff-- you dust it into the mopboards, in between your mattress and box springs, any where you can think of. Doesn't harm cats!!
Home Depot has it, and Target, but HD has an entire kit with it. We recommend that.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw poor darling Spitty and his human! We're sending many hugs for you all and a kiss on Spitty's sweet nose! We hope everything works out quickly for you!!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Um, but it appears my dear Nats base ballers have survived a game with your guys (FINALLY). So we will see what happens later today. If we win today, it will surely be a GREAT game when they both come back here for the last one. We're watching the games REAL CLOSE UP, eyeballs to the TV just in case you are attending. ~ IZA-LOVEY

Unknown said...

Oh no we so feel for you. No worries Spitty we will see you when we see you and we will wait patiently. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Cats Herd You said...

Oh, no! Bedbugs are one of the things that scare the head peep, so she totally understands how that pretty much does you in. We hope you can chase them back out to wherever they come from in a hurry.

Katie Isabella said...

OH boy Spitty, one of my human bros lives in an apartment and that happened in his building. He was devastated when they made it to his place. But he (and everyone else!!) notified the owners and that was taken care of, but what a WOE just as you said, and of the First Order, just as you truthfully without exaggeration, stated.
Check the tunnel though before you come over. xxooxxo

Terri said...

OMC! Bedbugs are awful to get rid of!

When it rains, it pours. We hope life will get really quiet around your apartment soon ;-)

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

OMG you poor things! Praying that both of your health situations are things that will be resolved soon! Sending purrs!

Cathy Keisha said...

TW is totally freaked out by bedbugs cos NYC is full of them. They’re riding the subways and everything. She practically makes Pop strip in the hall before he comes in. She even axed an exterminator in our building if he had seen any here but he said not a one. Now she’s gonna worry even more. Even thought they don’t like hairy or furry bodies, she said I can’t come to visit you for the next couple of MONTHS and you can’t come here! How’s that for ruining my love life. *sulk* I hope your health and everything resolve itself soon.

Eastside Cats said...

Here's hoping all your human and cat woes are resolved quickly! When things all happen at once, it can get overwhelming...but your internet pals are still here!

GLOGIRLY said...

Oh, Spitty!!! We're so sorry about all that fun-stuff. Very glad there's nothing serious in terms of health problems, but you guys are getting a quadruple whammy of yucky stuff. The bed bug thing is VERY freaky!!! Good luck... we're sending some kick-butt purrs.

KitKat said...

Yipes Spitty! Holy carp that's a lot of chit happening dood. Hope fate takes a liking to you and your Human soon.
Don't let the bed bugs bite.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

OH Spitty we are so sorry. WE hope t hings get better very very soon!

pilch92 said...

Sorry you are having such a bad time.Bed Bugs- yikes! And I thought our flea infestation was bad- good luck with everything. http://15andmeowing.com

charppps said...

We were gonna say something like 'when it rains......" but that would be a good thing there. So we are just gonna say "Hang in there, baby" . All paws and fingers and toes are crossed for you here. Never had bed bugs but imagine they are about as yucky as fleas, which we are very familiar with. Joey and I brought a bunch with us when we were adopted.
Purrs,
Eddie, Joey, Jasmine & Rosie & Meowma

Brian said...

Oh Spitty, we hope you regain control of everything soon.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no! I hope you get all your woes sorted out, and I hope the health woes are nothing serious.

Katie Isabella said...

I will always and ever be there, my love

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

As Katie Isabella says, always here for you a Spitty. Even tho' we don't male the rounds enough to comment and visit. I had to learn you, Spitty, have been unwell from a comment you left on Katie's Bloggy. Sending you belated healing purrs.

Ann Boyajian said...

Dear Spitty, we have had complications here too. Mom has been very spotty about blogging and visiting. We will be here for you once everything is sorted out. Bedbugs (shudder)!! Mouses! Get well soon, all of you!

brokenteepee said...

I have not been the best of commenters lately either. I would totally shudder at the bedbug thing too. Ick

Kitties Blue said...

Bed bugs? That is the most pawful thing we have ever heard. Hope they did not get on your cat tree, Spitty. We really pray that you have been able to get rid of them. Has that terrible heatwave broken yet? It sounds intolerable. Whatever health issues you and Mom Mary have been dealing with we pray will be short-lived. Sending all our love. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Marty the Manx said...

Bedbugs are a scary thought Spitty. Hope that the health issues aren't anything serious!
