Sad news

Miss Bed and Miss Couch have to leave.  We gotted buggies in them, and too many.  Friday we gotted fumigated and had to go to the lounge (more on that later). Monday they are going to do the regular spraying for normal bugs, which doesn't make sense, but maybe the chemicals interact or something.  Next Friday and some following Fridays we will be getting heat treatments to make SURE buggies don't come back. Part of what we had was bedbugs.  Yuck.  I got bitted.  The vet says if it hurts to take benadryl 10mg, but I am going to be brave. We also have beetles and roaches.  It seems somebody brought all this in to our building and lots of people are going through this. Mama heard lots of talk on the elevators. She is thinking of getting a daybed.  Anybody have any info on pros and cons? If we rap the mattress, we won't get buggies, and mama is leary of getting a couch cause you can't protect it.
Now for the lounge. Think PTU.  We went all the way up to the 25th floor only to find that not only do you need a key to get in (it's currently only for remodel people and bugged people), it's down on the first floor. Back in the elevator (not only do I not like elevators, only two of three were working so they were stuffed with beans).  When we were in the lobby we caught the manager and we gotted a key.  Back up 25 floors in a crowded elevator.
Then the lounge.  There was a couch and some tables and chairs.  And there was foodies for mama and a fridge with diet coke in it.  She brought a bowl for water for me and my dentabites.  Somebodies camed in (three other beans) and they watched tv while mama read and talked to me and petted me and fed me dentabites. If we have to go back on Fridays for awhile, not a bad vacation....
I think mama needs monies for new furniture.  I'm sure she will figure it out.  My bed can be washed on hot and dried, so I am okay.  Cept I will miss the bed for nappies.
That's our news.  I guess it is sad for my nappies, mama's monies, and those bad buggies.

Sorry to hear about all the dramas that you and your Mom are having with bugs. Hope the bug people finally kill them all, so you can live in peace in your apartment. Pity about the bed and couch - no suggestions here about a day bed - we just have a bed and a sofa,

Oh, no. It must seem never-ending. We hope this will be over for you all soon!

Yikes, I hope they can make those bugs go away!

Wow, I'm sorry you are having such bug problems. I live in Minneapolis too but so far no bug squatters in the townhouse. Do you think a leather sofa would be more resistant to those nasty little critters?

Good luck Brandi...don't get bit!

oh no! i wish you both could telyport over here and relax while they spray for buggies
a friend of mommy's had those bed buggies in her apartment complex. the men had to come and spray a few times. she bought a metal bed frame instead of wood so she can clean it. I think daybeds have metal frames right?
She also got rid of all her extra pillows and a new couch. it is fabric and she worries, but she likes to do homework on the couch. she got bit and itched a lot.
you both take care of yourselves! purrrrrrrrrs

We are sorry to hear about the bedbugs. We've heard they are moving in all over the place, and can be nasty to get rid of. Mom used to have a daybed, and she tried to use it for a "couch" but didn't like it because the 'seat' was too long - there was no back support. The way to go might be to get a futon instead.

Oh no! Those things are terrible I have heard, once you get them they are a pain to get rid of. But how cool you get to get a brand new pretty day bed to lounge and cuddle mama on!

We;ve missed you; sorry we havent been by in awhile but mom has been dealing with the fallout from getting laid off. WE promise to get back on schedule next week. hopefully you can come by and visit us again soon :)

Purrs Brandi,
