Some of you may have had this happen already but it took me by surprise early this morning. I think the craziness is still out there and it resulted in my cat lesson for the day: Be very careful if you have to wash near a male cat's, uhm, urination area...otherwise, you may get surprise not unlike what you may get when changing the diaper of a baby boy
First of all, I had to give my cat a quick rinse in the bath two days ago after he strategically launched himself between me, my feet and my dinner...which included a glass of carbonated beverage. He was not happy when he got a big splash of the drink on his back
. I scooped him up and went right to the tub with him. I was in such a hurry to clean him up that I sustained a few war wounds. I didn't have a good grip on him and he sort of crawled up me. But, things were ok since he wasn't in the tub for long, and he was soon warm and cozy again.
Now, early this AM, I came around the corner to see him emerging from the litter box. As he walked over to his food area, I saw a distinctive brown glob drop from his butt (he's a white cat so it's easy to see stuff on him). I took him over to his litter box area (I have an old sheet under the pan to catch errant litter) to set him down for a look. As he was relaxing, I got the no rinse cleaner to wipe poo marks from his tail and butt area. As I was wiping around back there, all of a sudden a stream of urine squirted out
. I caught most of it in the paper towel but some of it got on the sheet (doing laundry at the moment). What was even more unpleasant was that I was using my wounded hand to do the wiping...I hope I don't get some weird cat wee infection
I'm trying to keep my sense of humor about these weird episodes, and if I can stop the squirting incident from happening to anyone else, my babbling was worth it
I hope that you all have a fantabulous Thursday.
