    dear tuxie and miss ike

    Just once could I please brush my teeth and wash my face at night without having to move a kitty butt out of each sink, repeatedly?

    Miss Ike,

    today I found 50, yes I did count them, of your milk rings under the Welsh Cupboard in the bedroom. I thought you were looking a bit deprived. I am going to time how many days it takes you to fish them individually out of the drawer and hide them.

    Tuxie,

    Yes baby, I know that my hot sweaty exercise clothes and biking cloths are dirty and need washing. I do not need you leaping into the laundry basket,fishing out the items individually and strewing them along the hallway to the kitchen and laundry room while I am asleep. Honest.

    thank you both sweeties,

    your caregiver.

Came home, put the same box down, and she poops next to it.
    Beth, maybe it's the kind of litter you use?

    Dear sweet big strong Lyra,

    yes, we know you are a wild and independent creature with a rich, and let's not forget, nocturnal life. We all worship the ground you pound along on.

    But honestly - when you sleep all day, upside down, on the rocking chair (yes, ds was home all day, he blabbed on you) - and then spend all night:
    1. catching a mouse, bringing it in alive and then chasing it around the living room
    2. getting into a loud fight with the tom cat next door not once but three times in the course of the night...

    you're out of sympathy. Yes, I got up to check that you were all right. No, I won't be doing that next time. Shut up and go to sleep. You have a cat flap and can come inside, just let it go.

    - your exhausted house inhabitants

    Dear Big Cat,

    Thanks for getting off the loveseat before puking up a hairball; that was nice of you.

    Appreciatively,

    The woman who feeds you

    We're in the process of switching to stainless steel litter pans. Those are most definitely awesome! Stuff doesn't stick nearly as badly to them as to plastic, and they're easy to sanitize.

    I never thought that I could love a litter pan...

    I'd LOVE to get one of those, but I've never seen one big enough for my luggs. Both of my cats are over 16 lbs, and one of my cats is extremely long...neither fit well in standard litter boxes. I have one of those HUGE litter boxes that fits a cement truck full of litter.

    Dear Elliott,

    I do love you dearly, but you must understand that sometimes the two-footed cats need "alone" time. We really don't need your help and support when we're trying to use the restroom.

    Love,
    The woman who wishes you didn't feel the need to sit on my underwear while I'm using the toilet.

    Ha, our Lola (the laundry-pee'r) used to LOVE to sit behind our butts on the toilet. SO glad she outgrew that habit! On second thought...I'd rather she do that than pee on the clothes.

    Dear DBF's cat:
    Please stop complaining every time I call him. I can hear you over the phone.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Hi Mimi, I don't know the details of course but understand that persistent 'yowling' can indicate a thyroid problem? Just a thought.

    On the other hand, maybe the neighbours got a new dog?

    I didn't know about the thyroid/yowling connection. Our female is hyperthyroid and noisy, but she was noisy long before her diagnosis. I think she's just bossy.

    This is the jumbo litter box I use. It's like 2 feet long.

    http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=4217935

    I do have three smaller ones spread out through the house, but this is the main one that all of them use.


    Keep 'em coming. All of these are hilarious!! Luckily I'm deaf, so I don't hear them all crying, howling or whatever noise they make at night!

    Dear cute-but-dumb girlcat,

    Why do you insist on draping yourself across the computer keyboard when I am trying to type? The people I am sending messages to don't understand what [[[[[[[[[[99999y7p[pkkkkoooooooooo;;;;;;;;; means.

    Kindest regards,
    The woman who feeds you.
