I realized tonight that the stove in the apartment is brand new. Which means they removed the old stove in order to put the new one in. Which means, having removed the old stove, they must have seen the cat kibble everywhere. Which means they simply shoved the new stove in over it, and did not bother cleaning it up.
Otherwise, things are good. So far it's been a little over a week waiting for a sink to be fixed. Standard operating rules apply, I guess! We're done painting the living room (caramel and chocolate) and the bedroom (silver and gray), as well as the door trims. All we have left to paint now are the actual hallway/bdrm/btrm doors (white) and we're good! Pictures soon!
