Bucket Brigade

See these kitty litter buckets? Mom uses them as pots for her stupid Basil. Well, the upstairs next-door neighbors use what mom calls "mud buckets" for their tomato plants.
I do not know why Mom buys dirt, and I can't imagine why anybody would buy mud, but nobody's asking me.

Anyways, the upstairs neighbs got a lot of mud buckets yesterday. They were stuck one inside the other. That much I know because I saw them. But then the neighb guy started picking them up and dropping them on the ground. The noise was so positively terrifying I immediately ran away to hide under the bed.

It went on forever and ever. Dinnertime came, and Mom put out a nice can of stinky goodness for me, but I stayed where I was.

Mom ate her own dinner, and washed all the pots and pans, and I still stayed where I was.

Finally, when it was dark outside, and quiet all around, I came out to have my dinner in peace and quiet.


Then I sat next to Mom.

Millie, I'm sorry you were so scared. Our Nosey is very scared of thunderstorms; he always hides under the bed. I'm glad your mom was home with you so you weren't scared alone. Some people are just so insensitive to sensitive kitty ears.

Noisy neighbors are not fun! Glad you got comfort from Mom!

We're glad we don't have any noisy upstairs neighbors. And if we had some, they'd have to listen to Buddy's howling.

We know that sound, it's horrible and startling! We probably would have been hiding too, and mom would have been grabbing her head complaining of a headache!

Wow, that is a great use for those buckets!

Mom reuses our kitty litter buckets for stuff too, but not to grow things. We are sorry your neighbor scared you.

Oh that sounds furry scary Millie. I had to spend some time hiding from the noisy vacuum cleaner this weekend, it is one of the only things I am scared of. My mum couldn't do any gardening this weekend because it was rainy and blowing a gale, so she cleaned the house instead.

That noise is almost as bad as that crazy vacuum machine my mom uses. Sometimes our upstairs neighbors are loud and they drop stuff on the floor all the time!

The Big Thing has a dozen of those litter tubs. He puts our stinkies into plastic babs and closes them in the tubs. Then, when there is "too much", he brings them all to the landfill (which we think of as "the biggest litterbox in the world").
