Happy "11th" Birthday Oscar (a day late)

Oscar turned 11 years old yesterday (April 11). He did not have a great day as we are having the outside of our house painted and he and I stayed in our fishbowl most of the day with all windows covered while two guys painted and made enough noise to freak him out. I felt so bad but figured he would be fine as this is only temporary. He got to walk around outside late yesterday and check out all the stuff in our side yard and had 1/2 a can of tuna for a birthday treat. Two windows remain taped till later today (Saturday). He finally realized that most windows are uncovered and has been patiently waiting this morning for our front window (his favorite spot to sit and watch the world go by) to be uncovered.
Cute kitty

@lealady Thank you very much, Leah. The painter came and he worked on another part of our house so Oscar gets his favorite spot back on Monday but he is adjusting well. It is fun seeing our house come together outside. Now to work on the inside. Ever think it will never end? For a 15 year old house it has sure been an expensive investment.

@deburahiru Thank you so much, Deb. He has been a wonderful pet. I did not think I could have another pet that would fit in so well after George died but Oscar did it. He makes me happy every day. A big part of our family.

Well Birthday Greetings to Oscar. he must've wondered what the heck went on. bet he was glad when he could go back outside or at least look outside again. didn't know you had a cat.

@bruni Thank you so much, Bruni. He is still wondering what is going on. At least the security door was put in this morning and he was able to look out it as it is next to his plastic covered window. (our painter put it in wrong so I have to deal with that tomorrow). We have had cats almost all our married life, 33 years. I have posted Oscar a few times in my project here on 365. We have had him for 6 1/2 years now. I hope you are doing well. Have to sleep now as the painters final day is tomorrow and I have to be up early and stay up till they leave. Will pop in and check out your photos soon.

Oscar looks great for 11. Half a can of tuna what a lucky kitty. I'm sure he will be happy when his world is back to normal. Hope all is good with you and the family.

@lesip Thank you so much, Leslie. My husband gave him too much tuna as he has Pancreatitis but did ok with it. Oscar and I will be happy when our world is back to normal. Love our house, it looks great and almost done. One of the painters installed our Security door wrong yesterday and is fighting with me on it. He needs to take it down, fill the screw holes, touch up the paint, fix the spot that he messed up, get new and longer screws and paint them, raise the door up 3/4" , set the side pieces in closer, get a piece of wood for the bottom and a door sweep and weather stripping. He said he knew what to do and is fighting me this morning. His boss was here and said it is between the painter and me and to deal with it later.

OMGosh that was a mouth full... Did the painter install the door or the contractor? Hoping you haven't fully paid yet and can hold that over their head. Stay strong and stand your ground . It will always bother you if they don't fix it.

@lesip The painter installed the door and is coming back to work on it later today. We talked for quite a while and finally understood each other and the way homes are built and doors are made. I paid for the painting of our house today as all is done (did a walk around and the things that my son and I noticed yesterday were not fixed, small things but still) and will pay him for his time and materials when he is done and I am happy. I had to walk away for a while today and took a really long walk. Told them where the lights were to put up outside our house and left. Sat at our local park for a while, took some photos of doors, met a retired neighbor and chatted for quite a while. Came back to the painters and contractor at my house wrapping it up. I do not like the front light I picked out but love our house. It looks really awesome. I did not check all the lights we bought and one is broken so have to return it and have it put up. I should learn to check everything. Made an oops on the check I wrote so wrote a second one and the contractor came back to get it. He lives two blocks away so not a big deal. Thanks for your words of advice as the door jiggles a bit and I will have him fix that somehow. It paid off taking the walk today. It was not just the house but my sons car too. Waiting to here if it will be done today. It just came out of the shop and had to go back. He is so lucky that it did not stop on a busy street or on the freeway. Darn cheap alternators that they are making today. He maintains his car so well but the parts are horrible that are made today. I hope you are doing well. Take care and thank you for caring, asking and responding.

Oscar is so sweet looking. Great shot. Happy birthday to him! My kitties are jealous of his birthday treat of tuna. They love tuna.

@lilminimonka Thank you so much, Brianna. You are right the tuna always makes things better. So glad the house is done and life is back to normal again.

@mittens Thank you very much, Marilyn. Oscar is a super sweet cat. We cannot give Oscar tuna very often but when he gets it he loves it. Hubby used the rest of the can for his lunch the next day. Sounds like your kitties are spoiled too.
