Poo, Pee, My morning.

I wrote a haiku about this entry:

http://humdrumhaiku.blogspot.com/2008/02/poo-eww.html

Heres the deal. Every morning I wake up and if Skyefoil hasn't beaten me too it, I feed the dogs and cats and let the dogs out for their morning tour de bark. I reminded myself to first put a bark collar on the red dog so he shuts up a bit and doesn't bug the neighbors. Walking into the kitchen I felt a squish. I looked down and saw some kitty turds surrounding the outline of my shoe.

Gross.

I take the shoe off and cuss a bit. Then walk two steps to the garbage in the kitchen which I plan on banging my shoe against until the poo is cleared away. First step - other shoe first into the kitchen. Second step - socked foot right into a nice cold puddle of cat piss. I cussed some more.

Why do the animals feel like the kitchen is prime fodder for their excrement?

So, the rest of my day has been pretty good comparitively. I'm a little miffed that the snow is melting away. I talked to a friend of mine in Palmer, AK - they have no snow. Pisses me off.

I guess this happens every single year when Fur Rondy is in town (see: Jens Blog) the weather turns to slush. Its car wreck season thanks to all the thawed roads freezing into a smooth and well lubricated ice trough. The Rondy folks are setting up their carnival of Alaskana just up the hill outside my window. Jen expressed an interest in funnel cake, I admit I share that interest as well.

/me x's fingers for a better, poop and pee free day.

One of my 2 cats (both neutered males) had taken to painting all of my walls, furniture, and anything else he could reach. I was horrified when I got a UV light. He never did that in all of the 9 years I've had him and didn't when I got him a buddy (they love each other and did so right away) but when a strange black cat started showing up outside both of my cats went nuts and the older one (9) started his wall painting, as well as the curtains out in the kitty room. I couldn't keep up with it.

My cats are indoor cats so it's not like the stray is actually going to get in here but they both hate him (and he is weird...my neighbor's cats hate him too). I've tried cleaning with a pet urine enzyme and then spraying some "No More Spraying" but that hasn't worked. He's a sneaky little bugger too; he waits until he thinks I'm not looking and then does it. He's learned that the minute I see him backing his butt up to something he gets yelled at.

It wasn't until I found "Cat Spraying No More" that I was able to finally get rid of this tiresome behavior.

Now my house doesn't smell like a litter box anymore :)

I hope you don't mind me sharing this. Cheers!
