My day . . . . . .
Up at 6:30, as usual.
Did all the kitty chores, as usual.
Did my 20-minute pick-up around the house, as usual.
Checked out a few things on the computer, as usual.
Washed my face, brushed teeth, fussed with hair, changed into clothes I can leave the house in, checked my grocery list, got together everything I needed to take/return/replace, found my voters registration card - - - -
All “as usual” things.
Left to run errands.
Went to the library and to Tractor Supply (a sort of hardware store).
Went and voted.
Went to the grocery store.
All as usual things. And, from here, it all went downhill ………….
When I got home, I opened the back door to see this
What in the world???
Stepped into the house and looked into the kitchen
The new box of sandwich bags (150 fold-top bags) out of the pantry and sandwich bags everywhere – empty box laying a little further into the dining room.
And, lest you think I went off and forgot to lock the pantry door ………
Zack (and I KNOW it was him) managed to jiggle the hook off BUT didn’t dislodge the spoon. AND STILL ONE OR BOTH MANAGED TO GET INTO THE PANTRY.
I don’t know. Don’t know how they got in. Don’t know how they got out. I don’t know. These are big boys - tipping the scales close to 15 lbs each. Big cats - big.
I opened the pantry to find
On one side, everything knocked askew. The box of sandwich bags gone (see above). And, the box of kitty treats EMPTY! Note: the lid to the treat box is on the other side of the pantry.
On the other side
The brand new bag of cat food ripped open.
Again, lest you think these poor kittens are starved . . . .
I turned around, walked out of the kitchen to the small jar of deep dark chocolate with almonds.
Powerful Source of Antioxidants,

May Reduce Heart Disease Risk,
Could Improve Brain Function,
Helpful in Murder and Mayhem Conditions.
And, popped a big piece in my mouth.
Then, I shut myself in the kitchen, cleaned up the mess in the kitchen, and put away groceries.
And finally, I contemplated my options.
Nope! Zack moved that chair in about 2 minutes.
Among all the odd and unusual things I have, there is a small but heavy, cast iron cauldron. Moved that in front of the doors.
No, he shoved that right out of the way.
Next, I moved my very heavy chopping block in front of the doors.
Well, that would work except both of them jumped right up on top of the fridge where I have many breakables.
Right now the doors to the kitchen are closed and the Demon Duo are sleeping on the sofa.
I’m going to go take half a dozen ibuprofen, sit down, and read my new library book for a while.
