I’m overwhelmed by all the people checking in with me (and the kitties) over the past few days. Just wanted to let everyone know that my sister, Mom, Dad and I – along with our respective furry family members – are all safe.
No power so we are a bit chilly, but feeling grateful on so many levels (a special shout-out to my friend Jessica who’s been letting me take hot showers at her place!).
I’m only slowly beginning to see and understand the devastation left in Sandy’s wake. Not having had power has protected me from the images of mass destruction and tremendous loss.
So much for kitties being intuitive. Mine have been rather clueless, acting normally before, during and after the hurricane. What they were thrown by however, was the Pioneer Pet water fountain not flowing per usual. Not sure they recognized the still water as being something they could – or should – drink.
Sir Petie seems to think he can con me into giving him more food by sitting next to his food bowl in the dark looking all pathetic. No dice buddy.
I’m hunkered down at the ACE hotel with a bunch of displaced hipsters trying to look like I belong here so I can use their wifi and have coffee in the morning. Will keep you all updated as I can.
The hope is to have power by tomorrow. Come on ConEd! You can do it!
NOTE: For those of you interested in the Imperial Chair and Ottoman Petie is engulfing above, you can purchase it for $55 (it comes in a variety of “finishes”). Pretty good deal given the size and quality (not to mention stylishness!).
