A herd of elephant on my roof January 9, 2009

I sat down tonight to blog about Paige’s upcoming birthday party. It’s definitely going to be interesting. But, that will have to wait. As I sat down at my laptop, a herd of elephant started running across my roof.

What herd of elephant you ask? Or, how can your roof support a herd of elephant? It’s actually the cats. We have 2 cats, and Wendy has 2 cats. We have a flat roof over our bedroom. When the cats start playing up there it sounds like a herd of elephant are trampling over our heads. Normally it’s funny to hear them. Paige just giggles when they run. At other times they do it in the middle of the night. On those nights I swear we’re getting rid of the cats. Never happens.

Maybe if we were smart we would cut down the trees close to the house. That’s how the cats get up there in the first place. But, they are some pretty oaks, and we don’t want to lose them. So for now we have to live with the herd of elephants, um cats, running across the roof.

Think we should put them on diets? And don’t even get me started on what it sounds like when they chase squirrels. I’ve been to concerts that aren’t as noisy.

    I don’t know, if you put them on diets they might get all svelte and have even MORE energy. I say double the amount of food you’re giving them. The goal is morbid obesity; maybe they’ll just lay down at that point. 😉
