Power Outage

Sorry we haven't been around, but we have been without power since Friday 6:20am! There's big storms all over California . . . da power company says we may still be without power for a few more days! 

Luckily Mommakitty had da gas fireplace on when da power went out, so we have heat in da living room where we are all living right now. We can't turn da fireplace off, cuz it has an electric ignition and we won't git it back on. 

Our phones are also out, so da beans has gone out to a restaurant to plug in their computers and cell phones. When Daddykitty called da power company to see when we'd have service again, they told him we could see progress on the TV news. Um, . . . Mr. Power Company Dude . . . we DON'T HAVE ANY POWER TO TURN ON DA TV - DUHR!!! 
 
Mr. Power Company Dude said our neighborhood was not a priority, even though we gots a new blurpy thing in da house. Whut a bunch of DINGLEBERRIES! 

Anyhoo, . . . please say some purrayers fer us to git our power back soon so da blurpy baby can have some warm formula and butt wipes. We may not be able to check our blog or emails for another couple of days, . . . so, chow fer now.

Be well and stay warm with the blurpy thingy.

Oh, man. You guys are all gonna have to make a great big kittie & bean pile under all the blankets you can find. We're with Monty -- find a relative, or hotel, or warming shelter somewhere.

Does that dingleberry power company know you have a brand new blurpy thing?

muffinmidi said...

We're purraying for you.I think the idea of checkng into a motel is a good one.Poor Kiera doesn't have any fur.

Oh dear! Our Lady's sister (your neighbor in Bodega who's also without power) just had a baby boy on December 5th, so she's got the same troubles. When she's gotta charge the cell phone, she's gotta plug it in the car and drive around for a while. We sure hope the power company idiots get it back on soon. Purrs & love from us!

Max said...

Oh man...we were lucky, we got to keep our power. Lots of people near us lost theirs and some had trees crash into their roofs and stuff. A mobile home lost its WHOLE roof.

The worst is supposed to be over, so I hope you get power soon. I would be very cranky without it, I think.

Kaz's Cats said...

We don't get that whole 'not a priority' thing when you've got a new baby there. Some people have got no idea...We're purring that you all stay warm and safe, especially your new little sister,

I am really glad that you have a gas fireplace. I hope the power company dudes pull their heads out soon and realize that newborns ARE a priority. Keep safe and warm and I hope to see you again real soon. I really, really hope you get power again very quickly.

Poppy Q said...

Monty Qs advice is very good - who would have thought.

We hopes you is ok and prepared for this emergency. Imagine no compooter of tv!! You poor things. It must be stressful, with a new baby in the house.

We thinking of you boys and your fambly and hopes you are all safe and well.

So, what exactly would make it a priority for them? Does Bendrix need to pay them a visit? He is overdue to get his claws clipped.

Maybe the wipies can be sat on (no really, in ziploc bags) to warm them up. Poor blurpy thing.

We'll send good thoughts your way. Stoopid dingleberry powercompany. I'm sending dirty litterbox thoughts their way.

Puuuurrrrs to you all!

PS are there any "cat friendly" hotels that would take you for a couple of days since this is an emergency situation for you all (with a new blurpy girl and all too!)

Christine and FAZ said...

That power company sure is not the smartest. I didn't think about not having phones either - of course you have to charge them so they work. FAZ

Derby said...

Hello, a new baby!!! What does the power company think is important? If things get too cold, call the hospital or someplace like that, should have power.

Mum's brother in Oklahoma was without power after the ice storm last month for 6 days.

Call furiends, co-workers, anyone who might have power. With the little one we are worried.

Nika said...

hope your power is back on very soon. jabari offered his warming talents as a 'cat scarf'.

Luna said...

No power, that´s too bad. We hope you have power soon. We read about that in Germany.
Good, you have a gaz heater to warm...

The M's said...

Oh my, we are sending warm toughts and purrayers to you and Kiera. We are hopeing that the lectric dingelberries get the lectric on soon.

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Oh dear, we didn't know about this! Mr. Power Company dude's lil light...not too bright, it appears!

We are purrin' for you and your family to have power real soon.

Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no! That's awful. We hope you get your power back really soon. We're finking of all of you and sending our purrrs. It's lucky you got the gas fire. We hope you can all keep warm.

Black Cat said...

Ye dogs and little fishes, that power company dude sounds like he's several sandwiches short of a picnic. I do hope you get your power back on soon, I'm worried about you all and the little blurpy girl. Cold formula must be horrible for her. I have one of those gas fireplaces and while they are better than nothing, if yours is anything like mine it doesn't give out a lot of heat. Pftooey on the power company.

When you're back to normal, please can I go on your blogroll, even thought I'm not exactly quite a cat? I am Black Cat of http://black-cats-follies.blogspot.com/

My thoughts and prayers are with you:) xxx

William said...

Oh my! We heard about the outage yesterday. We're hoping things get fixed very soon!

Artsy Catsy said...

Oh no, we just heard! We hope you're all staying warm and healthy. Is there anything we can do? Maybe we should send an email blitz to your power company to put you on the priority list. Thomas Edison would be ashamed of them! We wish we could send you some of our heat - it's going to be in the upper 60's tomorrow here in Indiana. The weather is getting scary.

How awful, guys! Stay safe and warm, and cuddle the blurpy girl extra, because she is gonna need the warmth and comfort!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Oh that's horrible news. Being without electrical power is awful. I hope it's back on soon!

Tyler said...

PGandE to the rescue! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... makes me want to bite someone.

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Hope you get your power back real soon. I think when the power dude dingleberries come around you guys should give them the bitey.

PS- You have been nominated for an award! See our Blog for details (when you get power back of course!)

Caesar and Princess said...
