Who would've thunk?

Apparently my peeps have been keeping something from me. Yes, they have ducks in the house. They call them air ducks. Yesterday, I got the scare of my life when they decided to have someone come in to clean the air ducks. I may only have 8 lives left after this, it was so traumatic.

I thought my duckie was the only duck in the house. The peeps, you see, must be hiding those other ducks in the wall because the workmen had to take off the vents in the wall and ceiling to reach the air ducks. On a different note, I wonder how the peeps feed these ducks or if they feed on dust and stuff. After they took the vents off, they put a high-powered vacuum into the hole. That sucker was LOUD. It's a wonder it didn't suck the feathers off those poor ducks. I think PeTA should be informed of this duck cruelty, not to mention kitteh cruelty since my sensitive ears had to listen to that horrid, horrid sound. Did I mention it was LOUD?

The one caveat was that one of the workmen was very allergic to cats. Hee Hee! As he worked, he started breathing heavier and heavier and then he started sneezing. He sneezed about 40 times and finally ran out into the hall where he continued sneezing. When he came back in he kept clearing his throat and was wheezing and snorting. The woman had to give him a bennie to make him feel better. If I wasn't hiding under the bed, I would've come out and starting rubbing my dander on him.

I'm standing on front of a vent but I can't find the ducks hiding in there.


Finally, the torture was over. When I emerged, I looked into some of the lower vents but couldn't see any ducks. I hope they survived the vacuum. It was LOUD.

Sorry you had to deal with that awful, loud vacuum, Baby Girl! You'll be happy to know there are no other ducks living in your home. The vent that you're standing by leads to an air duct, which is where air for air conditioning comes from.

hehe - dat was so funny Cathy. Sorry to be laughing at your expense, but it really is a funny story. We had those nasty men in here too with that sucker-upper thingy. It was awful. M sat in one bedroom with me with the door closed - it was still scary. I hope they never do dat to us again. EVER!

Oh those poor duckies and what trauma for you. I don't like the regular vacuum thingee so I am sure I would not like the super one. If I had been there I would have put the bitey on it for you!

Cathy, you poor thing. Having to put up with all that noise. I'm glad you made the guy sneeze. We have duckies in the bathroom, but I haven't heard any in the walls. I'll have to investigate.

I hope the ducks are ok!!! It is amazing they are invisible though.

We don't have vents like that here in my home, neither invisible ducks. But I'll love to have some real ducks running in the yard to play with.
