8-Bit, your mom owes you big time!
CarolPetunia & jcat are right Why risk it? Maybe your husband can keep his pills somewhere else or put the whole bottle in a ziploc baggie or the whole bottle inside a larger jar or something to make its appearance & the whole routine of getting the pill out of the container COMPLETELY UNLIKE your meds & your own routine. Or try a daily pill-minder device (pillbox) -- load up your own pills a week or so at a time, dep. on the pillbox. That way you won't reach for the wrong bottle. If you need, just make a diagram of your pills, if you have trouble keeping track of generics. Here are a bunch of diff types on drugstore.com: http://www.drugstore.com/search/sear...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

Thank goodness you are alright! And btw, did 8-bit get any special treats?
He might be deserving a weeklong treat-on-demand service!!

That is amazing!

Peedoodle did the same for me a few years ago - we were having problems with our neighbours as she had invited 8 people to come and live with her in a 2 bedroom duplex. After I complained to the landlord about the ex husband doing stuff there, he turned nasty. The last straw was him backing his car to our open window (it was summer) and leaving it running while going back to bed - it was 6am when Peedoodle woke me up, he was doing what he normally does sort of like clawing at me but unfortunately he is declawed (not by me), but frenzied and this woke me up and I smelled the fumes from the car.

I should have called the police.

And you could also wrap a pipecleaner around the necks of your medicine bottles, so if you pick up a bottle that doesn't have that, you'll know to stop and check what you're taking. (Pipecleaners are nice because even if you aren't looking, you'll feel them.)

Sharing a house with my parents, who are in their 80s, I have to be very alert to these things... the three of us take a total of 22 different medicines every day!

Special hugs to 8-bit...
That's a great idea! I'll do that from now on.

I just gave 8-Bit a mixed green salad (he loves leafy green things of all sorts).

I am so touched by this kitty. He's helped me more than anyone will ever know. There are days where my depression gets the best of me, but he's always there to get me up and keep me moving. He makes me laugh and smile almost every day. You have no idea what that is like for someone who just goes through periods of darkness.

Heather, some of us do understand.

8-Bit is one very, VERY special little guy, and while his antics always keep you and us laughing, he proved today that he truly is an angel wrapped in grey fur and mischievousness. He really loves his Meowmy too.

That is exactly what I was thinking. He is your angel.

There are many times when the girls will bring me out of the worst funk. They are truly special beings.

I know exactly how you feel. There are days I feel are so miserable and lonely that nothing really matters to me. All I have are my parents, few friends who I hardly hear from, and no siblings. But then, come home and see Lexi and it warms my heart to know that I have a purpose in life. They will always love you, even when you may hate yourself.
You have done a wonderful job with your boys. They can make you laugh and cry. They change your life forever, go through the same rough times you do, and never judge you.

Way to go 8-Bit!!

All those naughty things he does doesn't even compare to helping his Meowmy when she needed him

What a great kitty! (I think we need a photo )

I'll see what I can come up with. He's a bit of a wimp when it comes to fireworks, so he's been camera shy for the past few days.

Oh yes... he goes in the bottom of our china hutch and hides. We call it the Dr. Who closet.

It's so cute, every time he goes in the hinges on the thing creek so we know exactly where he is.

I now have gray cat hair all over my "good" china.
