So this was how I spent my lunch today...

Soooo, remember the last post when I mentioned how Bochy hid everyday from the construction workers under our bedspread?  Well now he has found a new hiding place--the open air conditioning vent/duct in the garage.  I guess since they are now doing a lot of work right next to our room it was too noisy in there.  So this afternoon we were having our weekly meeting with our contractor--he mentioned that they were hooking the AC back up today so we would have air conditioning again this weekend.  Yay!!    Oh.  Wait a second.  Hooking it up today??  We ran out to the garage and sure enough it was all hooked back up.  We explained about how Bochy liked to hang out in there.  Long story short we ran all over the house looking for him.  No signs anywhere.  I was sure he was in the ducts.  The HVAC guy had to disconnect the ducts again.  We called for him, shook treats, nothing.  The HVAC guy crawled under the house (Lord knows I wasn't going down there!) and felt along the duct and found him.  So we knew he was in there, but he wouldn't budge.

So what did we do?  We shoved Christopher in the ducts with a flashlight and cat treats.  And that was the state of things when I had to leave to get back to work.  I have been getting updates, but it sounds like Bochy is holding firm in our AC system.  So the HVAC guys have to leave, we get another weekend with no AC (no heat waves this weekend though), and we wait for Bochy to decide he is ready to come out.

Good grief.

No. WAY! I never considered how a cat would impact the equation. You never see that on "Love It or List It" or "The Property Brothers."

I think Christopher deserves a might fine treat for crawling through the ducts because there is no way I'd go in there.

There has to be an easier way to lure him out of the ducts. Catnip, maybe? Good thing it's not terribly hot for you guys. I hope you guys figure out a way soon. That, or he already left at his own volition soon afterwards.
