Chris and I headed down to LA for Thanksgiving this year. It's been 2 years (gasp, BAD girlfriend) since I've been down to see his family, so I knew it was time I paid a visit. Sadly I was sick most of the time :( but we did get some nice family visiting in, so that's always good.
While Chris was there his grandma Max had him work on a few tasks around her house. Thankfully, because I felt like crap, I got to take some time off :) but I did diligently hand him tools. We also had another helper, one of Max's new cats Samantha who is just about the most curious, friendly, and fearless cat I have ever met.
She was just as helpful as I was throughout the projects Chris worked on
I tried to think of ways I might kidnap her, but alas, I knew Max loved her and she couldn't abandon (the appropriately named) Scamp - the other cat in the house, so I just decided I would miss her lots and lots.
She was a good worker cat and an excellent cuddle buddy if by chance I took a nap in the middle of the day. Oh Samantha the Renovating Cat how I miss you so much already... :)
