Another Update

The Mommy finally gots to talk to the insurance people yesterday and they are being big poopie heads. It seems that we don't have flood insurance so they won't cover the damage from the flooding. This means that Mommy and Daddy will have to pay for everything out of pocket which is going to be kind of rough for us 'cause Mommy is only working part-time now. Mommy did apply to FEMA for assistance so she hopes that they'll get some money from them to help cover some of the repairs.

Mommy is kind of looking at this as a blessing in disguise. She has wanted to redo the living room floor for a while now as the carpet was really cheap and ugly. Now she wants to redo it with something more durable. Daddy wants more carpeting but Mommy's afraid of another flood that would ruin that again. Instead she wants tile floors 'cause they are durable enough for us kitties. However, tile is really expensive. I personally love the carpet 'cause I can use it like a scratching post but I don't think that argument is going to sway her over. What do you guys think? Tile or carpet?

Mommy says tile, the yaks clean up easy that way.

Fingers crossed for the FEMA assistance.

Tile, with an area rug for your dad, and for you.

Paws crossed for FEMA, too.

BTW, you can get stuff like *good( vinyl tiles that look terrific (they've come a long way) or other types of durable flooring that might be more cost effective and look just as good. Worth checking out, anyway, depending on your budget.

We only ever had tiles here. Ours is cheaper ceramic ones but as we live in the sky, we can't advise. Mom says throw-ups and accidents clean up easier with tiles. We only have a few areas with carpet (cos Megat has asthma) or rugs. We hope FEMA comes through for you.

My human thinks you should go with tile! I agree about the carpet being better to claw. But then, if there is another flood, your human's won't lose more money having to replace the floor. I hope FEMA helps out! BTW, my human has flood insurance, and highly recommends it!
