Wednesday Word—Water


I’m ashamed to admit it but I’ll come right out and say it. My peeps are hoarders. If it wasn’t that I put my foot down and said they couldn’t get another cat, we’d have a house full of them. I shudder to think what will happen if they out-live me. That couldn’t happen, could it?

I guess it does have it’s good points like I’ll never run out of food or litter. Right now there are about a hunnert cans of my food and over 200 lbs of litter in the house. There are some questions to be answered like what if I decide I don’t like that flavor anymore like the grand Tunatopia debacle?

Seriously, it’s a good thing they only go to the big box store twice a year or we’d have to buy the apartment next door and knock down the wall to fit everything. We’re pretty close to needing a storage room as it is. Don’t even get me started on the piles of paper towels, snot rags and asswipe in the linen closet and atop the record albums.

See that stack of water bottles I’m sitting on? There’s a second stack in the condo too and they don’t even share it with me. I have to drink tap water. The peeps aren’t water snobs either. They’ll drink whatever brand is on sale—even the store brand—but it has to be spring water as opposed to purified tap water.

The peeps have a flimsy excuse for all this water boarding hoarding. Since they don’t have a car, they’re afraid they’ll get sick or won’t be able to shop for a month because of the weather. I think we’re all in trouble if they’re sick long enough to drink all this water before they replace it.


How about your peeps—do they stockpile supplies or buy as needed? Please don’t tell me mine are more unbalanced than even I think they are.

  1. Truffles: My Mommy is a hoarder too but it's not for useful things like you're talking about but silly collectibles! We live in a small house and it certainly isn't big enough.

  4. My human gets Arrowhead water delivered - and we get to drink it too! The tap water here in L.A. is notoriously awful.

  7. Haha, sounds like your peeps will never have water shortage :-) I think that's good!
    I usually get stuff when supply gets low, but somehow I have way too many dental floss. I forget how many floss I have at home when shopping, so I get one or two just in case and end up having so many!

  8. Not so much. And we use water from the faucet, it's good to drink, and doesn't cost anything ! Purrs

  9. CK, my Dad does like to stock up a little, but not like THAT!! I am down to about 10 cans of cat food right now.

    I dunno where they bought the catfood and litter etc, but we have found Petsmart to be very good about taking back anything that they carry. Just in case you have a change of heart about flavors of food.

    However, my humans are bad hoarders of other kinds of stuff - they hate to get rid of anything.

  13. My mom is like yours. We have lots of bottled water and canned goods in the house. It's tucked away in closets, in the pantry, and in storage bins under the bed. She tries to be prepared for at least a couple weeks of eating in case there's some horrible disaster or disease going around. However, we have no where near as much paper goods as you. And right now, I have no litter other than what's in my box and only 1 case of food. I think she has some shopping to do!

  15. OMC CK we only wish mommy stockpiled like dat. But alas, she sez she dusn't hav nuff munny. Sissy be ppeein' a lot these days so we kuld weally use a stockpile of litter. Mommy duz like to buy up hooman pawdee box papew specially ifin it's on sale and hers has a coupon. Ifin she dusn't hav at least 12 dubble wolls in da house she gets scared she's gunna wun out. And she always buys da furmily size of whatever. It's just her...Course she's always bought da big sizes fur us too, it's just dat we go fwu ow stuff quicker than her. Count yous selff lucky CK you never know what da wedder's gunna do and lleast yous won't be hungwy or usin' da dirt ifin you weally can't get out. MOL

    Luv ya'

  16. The head peep stockpiles, but storage is tight. We can't believe you have to drink tap water. The year the head peep lived in NYC, the pipes in her building were yucky and the kitties who came before us got to drink filtered and bottled water the whole year. We hope your water is the good stuff your region is known for.

  17. Mom had to get rid of her stockpiles when we moved here from southern California. So far, she hasn't gotten back into that! We drink filtered tap water and she makes our food, so no hoarding there. I guess the one thing she keeps a lot of on hand is chicken (in the freezer) for our raw food.

  18. Boy, your peeps can't outlast YOU CK...no waaaay!

  23. The mom isn't really a hoarder but she does forget what she has in the pantry and she ends up buying more stuff and then has twice as much stuff. Like canned tomatoes. You should see how many cans she has in the pantry!

  24. You poor kitty having to drink tap water. My kitties do and so do we because we have a well, but if I lived where there was public water, I would not have my kitties drink it.

  25. We just don't have enough space to hoard here, CK. But we prolly would if we could. MOL!

  26. Holy Carp, CK!!! I hope the condo floor is reinforced or between all that water and litter, you're all going DOWN!!!

    Glogirly and Gloman don't hoard useful stuff like water, litter, even Coke Zero. But when it comes to mail and billion year old bills and stuff... RIP pretty paper forest.

    ; )

  27. My mum is the same and she buys everything when it is on offer. My litter comes in 15 Kg bags and she buys 10 at a time if it is on offer so that is about 330 pounds. She gets TP in packs of 24 and buys 2 packs when it is reduced. I always have a minimum of 2 dozen of each of my 3 flavours of food and when she goes shopping she gets the same again which makes at least 144 cans. It is lucky we have a big garage or they wouldn't be able to get in the door. She doesn't buy water though, she filters the tap water.

  28. Ha! I suppose you could call me a clothes hoarder! BOL!
    I tend to have a habit of keeping clothes that no longer fit.....probably with hopes that one day......one day they will fit again hahaha!!!

  29. The Staff says she's not a hoarder! I wouldn't know. We are pretty cramped here with three people and one and a half cats! Cos she's moved around so much, she's kind of shed a load of what she calls "detritus" ! I hope I don't come under that heading!! Are those vinyl records?? Cool!!

  30. Toilet and sneezy tissue and paper towels. We usually have a bit more litter than we need. We always have at least an extra jar of peanut butter in the cabinet 'cause if Dad runs out, he'll have a melt down. Our humans are more pack rats than hoarders!

  31. we pretty much buy staples a month at a time. We never ever purchase water anymore unless at an airport when traveling. We drink tap water. Our water tastes just fine and we work very very hard to not contribute anything to that 2,000square mils of plastic floating off the coast of California. Shocking...oh, and we used to drink ONLY store bought water...It would be different we know if the water had a funny taste
