Owned by a cat


Things you do when you’re owned by a cat:

  1. Put a blanket on top of a box he likes instead of taking out what is in the box.  He’ll get tired of sleeping there…eventually.
  2. At 4 in the morning, he meows at you, and before you’re awake enough to know what you’re doing you’ve opened a can of cat food, spooned it into a bowl, and he’s eaten half of it already.
  3. Move the cat litter out of your bedroom and into another area, then have to move it back again when he starts using your closet as his litter box.

Number 3 has already cost me half a bottle of odoban.  And I’m still trying to get rid of the pee smell.

He does have his good qualities.  At the moment, I can’t remember any of them.  Every time he tries to get on my lap, the stench of eucalyptus-scented pee accosts my nostrils.  

Is he stepping in pools of odoban on his quest to find a new place inside my closet to pee? 

I can’t…I just can’t think about that possibility right now.

Is there a smell more evil than the lyptus-urine that just won’t die?

Tomorrow, I’ll burn a vanilla odor-killer candle inside my closet and hope I’m not creating another olfactory monster.
