Martian, Lil' Bit and Squirrel make sure I clean under the fridge and stove. How else will I get their lost toys. I do this once every month to collect the pile of toys that build up. I use a wooden dowel to get them out along with tons of cat hair. As you can see their favorite toys to play with on hard floors are the tops and rings from milk cartons etc. Besides that I must have about 20 of the soccer balls lost somewhere in the house.

Mittens is the most helpful, you can see she is in most of the pictures. Her main job is to supervise and inspect my work. You can see her making sure I change the bag on the vacuum. Martian checks it out when I a ready. The first time Mittens was inside when I vacuumed I had to pick her up and move her out of the way. A gentle nudge with the machine did not make her move. Later on she became a bit more weary. Now I give her treats when I vacuum.

|Pretty asking if she can help.|
|Blackie & Squirrel add to the fun.|
Ugly made sure the washing machine was ready for me to put a new load in. Of course I had to help her out of it before I could start. Next Mittens was on the bed to help me remove the sheets. After that she really got into her work while I put clean sheets on. Lil' Bit even joined in to help, she is the glowing eyes in the one picture. Checking to see if I needed more help Pretty talked to Mittens (under the sheet) to see what she could do. Finally Blackie came in to help
|All worked out.|
|Back to work.|
|Finished at last!!|
Having gotten the sheets on I decided to wait until my helpers left before finishing. Two hours later you can see that they were all tired out from helping and taking a nap. So I decided to open a new bag of food to coax them out. It almost worked as you can see Pretty is missing from the group. I decided to move her, poor tired thing was still sleeping. Rushing back in to finish, Mittens was eager to help. Once done Pretty joined her for some more rest from all their hard labors. Now you can see why it takes me 2-3 hours to change the sheets on my bed. Usually I have more help but the others decided to slack off this time. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
