Cherry City Contractors



But I thought I WAS helping...
Yep, it's one of our many sidelines, cat's gotta earn you know.  We are the Cherry City Contracting Kitties. No jobs to big (well, don't hold us to that one), no jobs to small... So how about a little drywall job for a Sunday afternoon...



Don't you want to check that one more time?  
After careful inspection...
We pled the case for lack of opposable thumbs, so carrying the drywall fell to the Momma and the Daddy.  We were especially proud of the Momma because she didn't swear at the Daddy at all,  (but she did tell Tipp to get out of the way through clenched teeth)   It took some time and some banging to get the old wood out of the way, and for that, we decided some lounging time in the bedroom would be best.  We left Dee temporarily in charge, although he was a bit confused about just exactly what his role was.  We told him, just supervise them. If they screw it up, we'll just dock their pay!  When he was exhausted watching over them, Tipp decided to check the progress, reminding the Daddy in his best Bob Villa tone to measure twice and cut once... or the Momma is gonna be really mad if you have to go back to the store...

It took a couple of hours, but the sound of the screw gun drill thingy didn't really disturb nap time too much, and by the time we woke up for dinner, they were just cleaning up.  Perfect timing!

Inspector Nutkin checked out the plumbness of the wall, the quality of the dimpling on the screws and signed off on a job well done.  Next visit, the taping and the mudding...hmmm... don't need thumbs to do a bit of spackling....
