Prowling around the wreckage



Outside the house looks strange. No roof, open to the wind and rain. Inside it makes a good climbing frame. Up the stairs, covered in rubble and dust, and in the corner of the roof there is a small and secret way that only a cat ( or a rat) could find, into Her studio.
It is cold.










We miss the roof.

Goodness those are dramatic photographs, to think she is still painting though all of that going on, I am sure you gingers will take it all in your stride and I expect it will be lovely in the end.

Oh, my Gosh!!! I hope it's worth it!! I had renovations done and my boys (cats) stuck together wherever they could, but at least they had a roof!!!! Good luck! (P.S.The word verification is 'mizira' - close enough to misery!!)

What a mess! that poor sad chair, looking like it's washed up on the shore after a big storm. I guess you guys can't live in that part of the house at all. I'm sure it will be lovely when it's done, but i bet She can't wait for it all to be over and done with.

Crikey, She is rich! I wish I was rich enough to send my roof away to have the gutters cleaned!

Oh dear! There is not roof! I hope you get a nice new roof soon! I love having a roof, and I am sure you do too.

Your home is looking very unsettled for both cats and people. Please, dear cats, don't go exploring and get boarded up into part of the new roof!
The sad fact of renovating is that one usually has to do way more than planned.
I hope there are still a few warm dry places to curl up and have tea.
