Yesterday I decided would be the day to put up my indoor Christmas decorations. I had Christmas music playing and forced myself into some holiday spirit as I pryed open the green and red plastic boxes that were dragged up earlier by my sons.
As I opened the first box, the familiar stench of dried, old cat pee hit my nose like a ton of bricks.
"NO!!! Who pee'd on my Snowman?????" I screamed.
Cats scattered for a moment and came slithering back. Did each one look guilty or was that my imagination? How on earth did pee get IN the box with the lid over it? Did I pack it away last year with pee on it?
I really liked that snowman. It wasn't anything special - no sentimental value. But I liked it.
The way I describe things, you'd think my house was a festival of pee. Not so! But I do occasionally find the random crystalized drops of pee in places that I wouldn't expect. A few days ago, I found a little bit of pee on top of my scale in my washroom. "What on earth....?"
Such is life with multiple cats. I think people with one cat don't have that occasional problem, but I know better.
Tomorrow is our adoption event and my cats were in an excited flurry over the box of adoption agreements, spay/neuter agreements, toys, cat dishes, pens, Temptation Treats and other goodies to make the event more enjoyable. After the snowman incident, I pulled everything out of the box. I won't be attending the event and I need to know that nobody in my house took it upon themselves to pee in THAT box.
Buy why would they? There's Temptation Treats in that box - Sacrilege!!
