It’s time for today’s edition of Cat Drama !
Bad: Samantha Cat has been pooping outside of the catbox since Saturday night.
Good: The first time it was solid.
Bad: Every other time has not been solid.
Good: She’s been doing it on the bathroom which has a tile floor.
Bad: Except the two times she did it in my bedroom which is carpeted.
This resulted in a call to The Vet.
Good: They were able to get her in this evening.
Bad: Samantha sang The Song of Her People all the way to the vet, all the way into the office, in the examining room, back out to the car, and all the way home.
Good: It’s just a bacterial infection which can be treated with pro- and antibiotics.
Bad: I have to squirt medicine into her mouth for the next ten days.
But that’s not all! This is the Casa de Cinco Gatos so there are four more cats in this drama!
Good: I was able to lock out the four tabbies downstairs so she could have some quiet time.
Bad: The tabbies are not happy that they’re being locked out and keep trying to dart upstairs whenever I open the door. They also keep banging on the cat door.
Good: A sheet of notebook paper covers the cat door perfectly so they can’t keep staring inside and having hissing matches through the door.
Bad: Cats have object permanence so they know there’s a door there and that they’re not allowed in.
I’m going to be tripping on tabbies on the stairs for the next week.
