Dear people who live below us:
We have to apologize. At first it was just one, fairly quiet, slender feline. She didn't meow, but yes, she got the zooms at random times. Indeed, her penchant for chasing and fetching hair ties led her to bouncing off of furniture and the walls. At times, I'm sure it was very disturbing and somewhat loud.
Circumstances led us to bring another cat home. New Cat - how do I say this? - is loud beyond comprehension. I understand if you hate us because of the sounds of his floppy feet constantly above your head. I admit it must be annoying to hear him jump off of furniture from what seems like an extreme height. And yes, the sound of claws on the plaster walls must be akin to nails on a chalkboard.
In fact, we don't know how to beg your patience or tolerance with the latest series of events. Yes, that was him in our linen closet at 4:30 this morning. Yes, he did knock down several boxes, sending things scattering across the floor, likely right above your bed. Yes, we also admit that he has been up howling in thirty-minute intervals every night over the past week. We are truly sorry.
We hope that this doesn't officially make us the worst neighbors, EVER. But, we may be. Please accept our sincere apologies and offers of peace. We too are at wits' end. But, BUT, if you saw this damned cat, you would understand why we're going through this. Because, Good Lord, he's cute.
Your Neighbors Above
