No Help At All

I would like to leave the garden door window open
while we are painting and doing the floors...
but...






thus
the garden door window stays
closed during renovations.

You are no help at all Banjo...



*Walls, doors and railings have all been painted.
Tomorrow Stanley starts on the floors.  :)

Happy Long Weekend!!

Hi, I don't envy you going through renovations --but you will be so happy and LOVE it once it is completed....

Sorry you can't keep the door opened.... Oh Well... Has Banjo ever escaped and gotten outside by accident? Is he totally an inside cat? I had a cat in high school --but she was an inside and outside cat.

Keep plugging... You'll get there.
Hugs,
Betsy

kitty cats interfering with good air flow! :)

Mary said...

But i'll bet he thinks he's helping! :). And Banjo says.. 'but i'm so cute! That's how i help!'. Lol

Удачи вам в ремонте! с уважением Аля

The Cat Guy said...

Banjo just wants to help! He's got four good paws to lend.

Becca said...

Aw...sweet Banjo!

Sandra said...

Banjo is ready for an outside jaunt... sounds like you are nearing the end of your renovations...

Terri said...

Banjo is really trying to help you- you need good ventilation when painting- if he is like my indoor cat- he'll take two steps outside then beg to come back in. Mine is a big scaredy ..cat!

Tamago said...

Aw the sniffy sniff sniff picture is so cute! Maybe Banjo is trying to tell you that you need fresh air coming in while painting :-)

Brian said...

I don't know, Banjo looks like he is being pretty helpful to me! Have fun painting!!!

Nancy said...

I think you guys should wear gas masks to accommodate Banjo. :)

BeadedTail said...

With all the work that has already been complete, it appears that Banjo has been very helpful. :)

SweetMarie said...

Does Banjo ever go out? We do not let Fox outside. I'm don't want anything to happen to him. :) And I don't want him harassing the wildlife. :)
Can't wait to see the new floors!

Carolynn Anctil said...

You guys are really working hard! I'm excited to see all the new changes.

Banjo certainly looks like a model prisoner. It must be tempting to give him a day pass. I'm sure he'd come back inside if you rang the dinner bell. *smile*

Poor Banjo! So much to snoopervise...

I'm glad he's an indoor-only boy, and looking so slim and trim, too!

Susan said...

Uh oh, you didn't make him mad did you? You know you will never live that down?

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
That is awful for not being able to have fresh air... Poor Banjo, he wants to go hiking so badly!
Good luck with the final jobs.
Hugs,
Mariette

Renovations are so stressful - to people and cats. But it will be beautiful! sandie

Penny said...

Looks like you have plans for the long weekend! You should have waited and done all your labour on Labour Day! Just saying.
Find some time to enjoy your backyard.

Hi Catherine!! I think that Banjo just wants to put his 'print' onto the renovations! :-)

I hope you are doing well--I've missed your blog way too often, and will try to stop doing that! I hope you enjoy your long weekend!

Lin said...

Aw, poor Banjo! He needs a kitty door! ;) (He told me to tell you that)

Willow said...

Banjo is such a beatiful boy is he a snow marble Bengal kitty ?

Tammy said...

My indoor cat loves to sneak out an open door as well. Luckily, she just sniffs around, eats some grass, and wants back in:) Banjo is so handsome!

Barbara said...

I'm still living through a home construction - it will be another 30 years before it's finished. My sympathies!

Laurie said...

Banjo is so cute Catherine, my Andy is afraid of the outside, he'll stick his head out the door, then runs back inside. I guess no fur has something to do with that!

The Chair Speaks said...

Hehehe, Banjo wants to help in supervising like we do when our human start painting the walls! Purrs!

Our photos said...

Lovely photos from Banjo!

Safe Haven Hotel said...

Hope your keeping your sanity during reno's - we JUST lived through ours and barely! *L*

Crafting Queen said...

Oh Banjo, I will send you a pair of scissors for that screen. I would let you out to play. :) Hope you have lots of lovely warm sunshine. It's a bit windy here. Lots of hugs Anesha and Skipper.

Kalyan Panja said...

looks beautiful!

Eileen said...

Poor Banjo, he doesn't understand you need to keep him safe. Maybe he doesn't like the paint fumes, either?

Sounds like you've made major progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product!

Have a great week.

Poor Banjo
confined to house on a summer day when so many exciting things are happening....

=)

Kitties Blue said...

Banjo, I would have been out that door so fast, my mom would have only seen the tip of my tail. You are an especially good kitty. Love Astrid and the other Kitties Blue

P.S. Mommy is finally getting your gifties in the mail. Sorry she's so super slow.

Michael Manning said...

Catherine: I can just see Banjo tracking paint everywhere, and wondered how long it would take him to notice? :D)

HARLEQUIN said...

Banjo wants to check work and correct errors:) Have a nice day!

Sylvia said...

Banjo is such a sweetie :-)
You did a lot of work already, good luck with the floors, Catherine !
Nice day,
Sylvia

troutbirder said...

They never give up their escape mode thinking, do they?

Pantherka said...

This is a great ...

Linda R said...
