We have two cats. Two female cats. We did not get these cats because I love cats. Or because I love animals. Or because I need an outlet for my affection. We got these cats because I hate dogs. My oldest child has a very distinct bond with animals, and every girl needs a kitten, and I caved. I just try not to notice the cat fur all over the house, and go on with my life.
The first time my cats ever totally embarrassed me was when we went to deliver christmas cookies to the neighbors. They all invited us in for a little a chat. Of course my girls behaved themselves very well, but the problem was that our cats followed us on our excursion and actually fought their way in to 2 houses on our trip. When have you ever seen a cat that makes house calls? I was mortified.
The other problem we have is that when the cats take issue with anything, like running out of food, or their litter box needs to be changed, or someone pulls their tail, they throw a tantrum and pee in my clean laundry. I have taken to closing the laundry room door ALWAYS, which always works until a child for no reason whatsoever opens it for the cat who promptly throws a tantrum in my clean towels. In fact, they will even climb in the dryer to pee in clean laundry. IT IS MAKING ME CRAZY!! I can't help making them mad... they are female after all. So, the solution, I know, is to never leave clean laundry out. Ahem. I do an average of 12 loads of laundry every week, and I rarely get the chance to fold and put away a load as soon as it is clean. Does anyone?
Solutions anyone? Two loving de-clawed fixed female cats anyone?
