To Our New Cat-sitter:
Thank you so much for caring for our precious, precious, furry angel babies that we love so dearly and they are truly so sweet natured. You will notice in each room we've set up kitty jungle gyms and their little t.v.'s have been set to Animal Planet.
Sometimes when we leave town our two precious and precocious kitty angels become high strung. First and foremost, don't panic. Don't panic when you come in and the curtains are shredded; our big t.v. has been turned over; the lamps are shattered on the floor; the fish are missing from the bowl; the cat litter has been spread out like floor fertilizer and the bed has been used instead; all of the paper on rolls have been rolled out; the house plants have been dug up; and/or the refrigerator door is hanging on it's hinges and the contents have been sampled. This is all normal.
Don't panic if you can't actually see our little angels. They are close by, watching your every move.
It would be best if you varied your entry time so they can't prepare any traps upon your arrival.
Also if you see a trail of blood splatter's that lead to a closed door and hear whimpering behind the closed door, don't fall for it. We've lost so many cat sitters that way.
Actually if you could enter through the front door and just hum a tune from The Sound of Music while you lay out their food and place fresh water out for them (their food and bottled water is in the cabinet with the lock on it - the key is on your keychain) then continue walking through to the back door, it might be the easiest route for you to escape through. (Please don't forget to relock the cabinet!)
Best of luck to you and remember, don't panic. We hope the $2000.00 will be enough for the weekend. Please let us know if you'll need additional medical care.
