Brian and I are placidly watching TV last night when, about 10:30 we hear what sounds like Niagara Falls Pacific coming from our torn apart master bath. I fly off the couch and into the bathroom where the Evil Ipo is racing out the door, low to the ground as only cats who have perpetrated some terrible crime can do.
Water is pouring out of the wall and flooding the floor. "Holy shit!" I yell. Naturally, I don't have on my reading glasses and it's dark in the bathroom so I can't see where the water is coming from so I can stop it. Luckily, the wonderful Brian finds the lever and shuts it off. Water is everywhere.
I get out the mop while B goes downstairs to see what havoc the Evil Ipo has wreaked upon the party room directly below our condo. I know it is not good because, as the concrete floor is torn up and the walls are torn out, I can hear the resident manager and another male voice. There goes our $1000.00 deposit. And they think workman might be the cause of damage. Hah. Obviously they have never met Ipo.
After a long while B comes back and says the water has flooded the brand new ceiling tiles and soaked the tables and couch and carpeting and is also dripping from the light fixture. I see dollar signs zipping by so fast I am dizzy.
Luckily, our resident manager is an electrician so he can fix whatever has happened once the water dries up so he doesn't electrocute himself.
Ipo is now sitting on the kitchen counter yelling for her snacks. She rapidly becomes familiar with the term, "FAT CHANCE!!" As well as some other choice phrases.
As I write this the little wretch is siting outside the master bath door crying to go in the bathroom. Once again she hears her new phrase. She also hears awful things like Kitty Fur Gloves and Kitty Stew. She also hears the dread words, Humane Society. And Euthanasia. And Dog. She is a kitty living on the edge. But God loves her and has made he one of the cutest kitties in the universe so I will have to get over my urge to do her in. Although, to the highest bidder..... she's got herself a new home. Just keep her away from the plumbing. :(
