Tortie Tuesday. Finally.

It's Tortie Tuesday and I'm way late in posting but thankfully I'm here now. This morning started out with Mommy getting the glass out from under the guest room bathroom sink to fill up our water fountain. When there was water dripping from the bottom of the glass she looked a little closer and we had a mini flood happening in the cabinet!
She called Daddy who told her to turn off the water but 1) she couldn't climb in far because of all the water, 2) the flashlight was dead, 3) she couldn't get the little knobs to turn and 4) she bonked her head and was not happy so he came home from work and turned it off. The leak didn't stop because the water was coming from another spot back here near the left knobby thing...
So, a stranger dude came and replaced the valve because Daddy had to go back to work. The stranger dude told Mommy it was a very good thing she had to fill our fountain today before any damage was done. This bathroom is on the 2nd floor and it's basically only used for our water so who knows how long it has been going on or how long it could've gone on. Anyway, it's airing out now and I'm keeping an eye on it to make sure there's no more leak...
So, catching water leaks while filling up our fountain is reason #3,652,956 for having a cat. Just sayin.

Anything exciting happening in your neck of the woods?

Hope you have a dry Tortie Tuesday!

Whew! Good thing you found that leak, Isabella. Otherwise you might be doing the dog-paddle.

Those are great photos of you helping out - and oy! what a day. A real pain in the patootie and with all the things not working turns out it didn't matter anyway, it needed a pro! Whew! At least that's taken care of.

Yikes! We're glad this was caught and fixed. No one wants a flood and/or ruined floor!

Oh, wow! That's the kind of excitement you can do without! It's good that you're there to inspect the stranger's work!
Yours sincerely,
