While I was waiting for my new, used Macbook Pro to come in, I cleaned up a lot of dead foliage out of the wisteria and trumpet vines growing on the sides of the house. There was a large tangle of vines that mostly covered the east facing bedroom window. After years of use and cats crashing through them, the mini-blinds we had on that window were unusable, so I had removed them quite some time ago. With the covering of vines gone, the sunrise shines directly on our pillows this time of year. After waking up to a blinding sun Saturday morning, I went directly to Lowe's, bought a set of vertical blinds and installed them on the window. I figured vertical blinds would be much more cat friendly than mini-blinds, and Najar demonstrated just how kitty friendly the new blinds are.
