My New Neighbors

The new neighbors
We got new neighbors last month. Actually, we weren't aware the old ones were moving. That's how it is with condos. Everyone is in their own little world. The only neighbors you know are the ones who let their kids run up and down the hall screaming all day.

I digress—new neighbors moved in. The woman is from Brazil and the guy from Germany. Usually, when there's a move-in or move-out, I scramble UTB to my office. Quite frankly, the noise is deafening. We live right across from the elevator—yeah, what were the peeps thinking when they signed the lease—so all the furniture and boxes get taken out of the elevator and piled in front of our door.

Early on the morning of the move-ins, they put wood planks on the floor to protect the incredibly ugly hall carpeting. Actually, they THROW them down. **CRASH!!** Then the movers yell, scream and make as much of a racket as they can. I think they're gonna come right through our door so I head into my UTB office so I can catch some shut-eye.

You can't scare me! Pop will eat you for dinner and then spit you out.

Last month, I stood my ground. Maybe it was cos Pop was home and I felt safe. Pop can handle those guys if they try to bust in here with their furniture and noise. He can take all of them together. That's how tough my Pop is. If that doesn't work, he can bribe them with eggplant he'll stay with me and make sure I'm safe and that they don't enter our condo.

We bet you and your Pop together could stop anything, CK. :)

I think we kitties should be in charge of moving - things would be VERY different!

Glad you survived the neighbors move in, Keisha. Have you met them yet, or do you even plan to?

Sounds to us like your condo could have used a freight elevator for things like moving day.

Mowzers, where were the Noise Police when ya need them?

Karen Jo said...

UTB is the best place to be when strange noises happen. I go there, too.

We hope they turn out to be nice neighbors! (they seem awfully skinny, though)

Patty Woodland said...

It's good you didn't have to hide CK. Maybe you can learn to meow in German now.

Ann Staub said...

Sounds kinda scary. I did pop your name in the nomination hat for a few things ;) Good luck!

Molly The Wally said...

Oh my we hope it is quiet now. We have builders next door. It is bang, crash, drill, drill from morning to night. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Brian said...

Good for you CK! Sometimes I don't like loud noises even if my Dad is here.

We don't like it when new people move it either. We stare at them and give them the evil eye. Ateret freaks out.

meowmeowmans said...

Thank COD for Pop! With him there, you have nothing to worry about!

We nominated you for the Petties. :)

Deb Barnes said...

Geez... don't your new neighbors have any respect for you? The gall... anyhow, try to have a good weekend all best of luck with the Petties! Purrs from the Zee and Zoey gang!

Caren Gittleman said...

we feel your pain. We live in a condo/apt building too but ours only has 2 floors. No elevator. Sometimes the noise here gets pretty bad too!

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Unexpected noise is stressful. Good luck in the Petties. We'll give you a nom.

Sweet Purrfections said...

We don't think we'd like all that noise outside our door either.

The Florida Furkids said...

We're hoping that your new neighbors are nice. The house across the street from us sold this week and we're hoping they are nice too.

So do the new neighbors have a kitty or woofie? If so, does it answer to Portuguese or German???

I did nominate you, yes I did! And I hope you win, too.

You aren't going to bite me, are you?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Hopefully the movers will only be there for a day. Our back neighbor has moved out and we purray whoever that buys the house doesn't see the need to spend MONTHS renovating the it.

Speak Doggie said...

Stay strong and don't have a "hissy" fit. Soon, the noise will subside and you will have your peace and quiet back.

sagechronicles said...

I hear you, CK. My spot is UTD (desk). Glad we have our peeps to keep the invaders in check.

CATachresis said...

I am wondering like Spitty if they have a kitty or .. horrors …. woofie? Good job for Pop is all I can say!!xx

Mariodacatsmom said...

How rude and scary. I'm sure glad you have pop around for protection. He'll take good care of you. UTB is the best place when you are scared.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I totally remember about Cooperstown. I suppose there are more Yankees than Giants in there. Sigh. I guess I'll just have to get over it. Soon, my darling, soon!

Anonymous said...

Indeed, what were the peeps thinking, making you live right in front of noisy elevators. Moving day sounds like a nightmare but I'm glad to hear you feel safe if Dad's around.

Katie and Glogirly said...

We got some new neighbors too. They had new carpeting put in and it was so scary that BOTH Waffles and I holed up in the Cat Sitter's room. Now THAT'S scary!

I didn't have movers and new neighbors...but they have been painting our town home...and I have had all these dudes like hanging by every single window...I can't sleep cuz I just know they are gonna crash through one of windows and poor foster Leo is scared too

Kitties Blue said...

We'd hate that commotion right outside our front door. We are glad that we live a a really big old, old, old house with only our humans to try to keep in line. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette.

We are happy that your Pop protected you, CK.
