Occupied Dwelling Mish Mash

Meowllo everypawdy. We do hope you’re havin’ a good week. We’re still waitin’ fur things to calm down so we can get back to normal ‘round here. Me told ya’ dat mommy and me was gonna have a Dezi and mommy day out Monday since it was time fur her monthly doctor’s ‘pointment, but we also thought we’d be back to visitin’ on Tuesday. So much fur da bestest laid plans. When we got home Monday we found a notice on our door ‘bout an inspection today, Wednesday. And it was gonna be one of those every box checked inspections: Cleanliness, Check Smoke Alarms, Change Filters, Extermination and Occupied Dwelling. Now most of ya’ looked at dat list and said, “What in the world?” We know, cuz we do too.

 Dezi cocks head to the side in thought

Da manager used to try to pull all this off at 7:30 – 8:00 a.m., and she would write mommy up cuz she couldn’t get to da door. So a few years ago when we was havin’ all this trouble with da manager, da lawyer asked fur an accommodation dat would require them to wait till at least 10:00 a.m. to do these inspections. Mommy’s not at full function by then, but she can usually let somepawdy in da door. Well this of course made da manager mad, but all da other residents was happy. Nopawdy wanted their brekky interrupted by alarms goin’ off and bug spray everywhere. And me does mean everywhere. After da exterminator leaves everypawdy has to mop and re-clean. He just walks through sprayin’ at everythin’, includin’ things like coffee pots, ceilings, and we’ve heard a teevee or two. Anyways, da notice meant dat mommy would have to spend all day yesfurday gettin’ ready.

Yeah, yeah, me knows, you’re wonderin’ what happened to our ‘round da house helper dat mommy had gotten da okay to hire. Well let me see, where to begin…(Dezi thinks to herself for a minute) Well ‘bout a month ago now, mommy actually had 2 different peeps show up and apply fur da job. Mommy innerviewed both and liked ‘em both ‘bout da same. One was a younger stay at home mommy dat just wanted extra money and to get outta da house (this job would be purrfect fur somepawdy like dat). Da other, was a widow dat needed money to live. She’s workin’ fur several others cleanin’ their houses and bein’ paid cash (under da table money). Mommy made certain dat they both unnerstood they would be getting’ paid by da State of Oklahoma, and it would be a check with taxes taken out and everythin’. Both said dat was fine. So mommy sent their applications off to be approved. A couple weeks later mommy was told da younger of da two had been approved and they were still workin’ on da other.

So mommy called da girly to offer her da job. She even came fur her furst day. When she left, she said she’d be back tomorrow (her second day of work). Well tomorrow came and went and no girly. Sad smile WTC (What The Cat)  So mommy checked with da State lady and found out da other applicant had been approved too. So mommy called her to offer her da job. Her reply was no surprise to mommy, but it was aggravatin’. See, even tho’ da State is payin’ fur this, there’s a budget dat mommy has to follow. And outta dat budget, mommy has to pay da cost fur those background checks. So ifin a purrson doesn’t take da job, we’ve already spent money on them, and there’s only so many background checks mommy can have purr da budget. Anyways, she told mommy dat she really needed to be paid in cash, cuz she didn’t wanna lose her welfare. Yep, there’s somethin’ really wrong with our system, and peeps. But alas, we have no ‘round da house help…still.

Now let’s get back to dat inspection. Mommy did what she does and killed herself cleanin’ up and then da manger showed up at our ‘partment this meownin’ at 8:30 a.m.. She should be refreshed on da rules, since we just renewed our lease and went over da exceptions mommy has. Ya’ know dat 10 o’clock time frame. Well mommy just hollered dat she couldn’t walk and Raena and me gave da nasty manager da ole hiss of disapproval, and da manager went on her way. She knew she couldn’t push mommy or write her up, cuz she was breakin’ our lease. Dat exception is based on mommy’s disability cuz she can’t move early in da meownin’. So it turns out, mommy wasted yesfurday getting’ ready fur nuffin’. Oh yeah, a lot of ya’ are wonderin’ what Occupied Dwelling means, right? It just means dat da only peeps livin’ there are on da lease. We have a few peeps out here dat have peeps livin’ with them dat aren’t on da lease, but da manager lets them get away with it. Ifin it was us tho’, we’d be in all kinds of hot water. and me doesn’t mean a hot tub.

Me really doesn’t care, cuz me’s still walkin’ on clouds from me’s day out with mommy. Me had her all to meself and it was pawsum. Me meowed to mommy dat we were gonna have to do more of these now dat Raena lives with us. And mommy purromissed we would. Me so luvs spendin’ time with mommy. We went to da doctor’s office and then da farmacy. And da town where our farmacy is has a brand new Dollar General, so mommy decided to take me there. It’s really nice and clean; ‘course it’s new. MOL  Then we went to da pawrk fur a few minutes befur returnin’ home. What a day. Me’s gonna wrap it up now and see ‘boiut getting’ some of those treats mommy and sis Raena brought home da other day. 

Till da next time…………………………………Be Blest!!!

Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

    • MOL Dat’s da truth. She wishes she was and dat she could bully everypawdy. As fur bein’ “special”, they are specifically fur da elderly and disabled. But it’s so they can be funded by da government. dat means our rent is ‘posed to be based on our income, lessen they figger a way to cheat, which they do, so our rent is a bit high, but we can’t afford anywhere else. But there’s nuffin’ really special ’bout them dat would require so many inspections. It’s independant livin’. Ifin you can’t take care of yourself and your bills, then you can’t live here. Don’t know ifin we answered your question, but we tried based on what we unnerstood it to be.

      Luv ya’

  • Sometimes TW feels that some rules are written for her cos everyone does stuff and she’s the one who would get nailed. Sorry your help wasn’t any help at all. I hope they don’t spray that bug spray at you or your cat trees and stuff.

  • That stinks about the housekeeping help. I wish I lived near you so I could help you for free. I wonder why the other one never came back- I hope she didn’t steal anything. I wish the manager would leave for another job. XO

    • Peeps here just don’t wanna work awnty Ellen. As fur payin’, da State will pay someone, but they ain;t gonna get rich, and just workin’ fur mommy wouldn’t support anypawdy, so it’s purrfect fur somepawdy lookin; fur just a little spendin’ money or such. Da only reason we can think of fur her not comin’ back is dat she didn’t wanna work after all. 😦

      Luv ya’
