god.. what i way to wake up.
Alexandra was at my mothers house so i figured i could have a nice sleep.. and sleep in till whenever i felt like it. Well i woke up to one hell of an alarm system, Fire alarm to be exact. Now you are all probably thinking ah probably just some kid pulling a prank in the building, Well i hoped so too. But when i looked out my window and seen smoke i went nuts. I could hear people yelling at other people to get the hell out franticly. Now i dont know if you know but I once had the scare of a fire in my old apt building and was not ready for it, so this time i thought i was ready. Well ... i wasnt as much :P
I grabbed my carrier and started searching for the cats. (two kittens are staying with me for a extra week) Shadow being the scaredy cat she is went to go hide so i grabbed her first along with the kittens. She somehow got out of the cage freeing the other kittens while i grabbed kissy. This happened like 2-3 times before i could start tasting the smoke and said well shadow i guess your fucked. I went out into the hall and noticed that there was no smoke on my floor yet, so i went back in just one last time for shadow.
I finally caught her and turned the cage up so no one could get out this time (probably letting kissy squish the kittens for a sec) and got the hell out of there. Now i dont know if any of you have ever carried one cage with 4 cats down 6 flights of stairs.. but its quite the task. Once i get outside i call my mom to tell her to take her time coming over because she wont be able to get into the apt to pack up anyways. Then i decide to try and survey whats all going on, turns out it was just a fire 4 floors under me. I probably could of stayed safely in my apt but i think i would of gone mad if i did.
Anyways after about a hour of being stuck outside, my cats and I are all safe lol and finally back in the apt. I swear my building must think im the crazy cat lady standing outside with a carrier full of cats and no one else with me LOL. I think i might go back to sleep and start this day over.
