I would say that the biggest thing that adds real value to my life is my animals, and there’s nothing like getting to the beach house & having someone so totally stoked to see you, no matter what the day has been like; If I were to lose my beloved pets, I would instantly be losing my unquestionably best friends & most kindred spirits in the world. All That being said, I may have crossed over the threshold for the reasonable number of animals recently. There’s still plenty of room to walk around between the lounging cats & cats, don’t get myself and others wrong. You might have to step gently over a few guinea pigs & rabbits, sure, but you’ll also have to take a deep breath & have as few interactions with the indoor air as possible for the duration of your stay. I mean, the indoor air quality has really taken a downturn in the past few weeks… maybe the air quality has really taken a major downturn in the past few years, if I’m being honest. It’s not only all of the dirty cat litter boxes spitting dust & debri into the air as it flows past through the vents, but also the stinging ammonia smell that contaminates the indoor air from their pee that doesn’t make it into the box. The cats are far from blameless, either. Their passion for rolling in everything means they continually drag outside dirt & animal feces into the venue, to add to the air odors. I do my best to keep up with cleaning it, but the air filter is regularly clogged with animal hair & dirt… For the sake of my many acquaintances, & the city… I assume like I either need to rebuild my HVAC plan or find a new beach house for my furry family.
