In the meantime, locked all the cats out on the screened-in porch with food, water and litterboxes. Nice day. You'd think they'd like it, right? Wrong. I checked on them, and they were unhappy about being on THAT side of the door for HOURS. Salt, the largest, was crying pitiously. I've never heard such gutwrenching, mournful sounds. You'd think I was eating his tail.
So yeah. Grr. Argh. I'd like this done now, please. I have a refrigator's worth of contents that need to go into the nice shiny new refrigerator. :)
