    Rascal (aka "fat wanker" ) comes in and does the usual shuffling around in the 36" x 24" box, and
    wanders back into the house part of the house. Soon I notice the familiar odor, and think the normal thing, but it doesn't go away. I keep doing what I'm doing and it just gets worse and worse, so I know he's gone and left one. Sure enough, I get up and go over to look, and there's about 8" x 3/4" of it
    laid neatly on top of the litter . He'll probably go scarf and barf now and leave some big ol' pile on the rug ,
    to compliment the pile in here. I love cats :thumb:

    My boy thinks the litter tray is for special occasions.

    Cats used to be worshiped and can take something 6 times it's size in a fight, I give them plenty of room since they know that also.

    They are basically fecal and urinary terrorists .
    We had four neutered males at our last place, and they had scent marking wars. We
    had them take a dye that showed up under black light, and when we looked , almost
    every vertical surface, inside and outside , was lit up with splashes. Things got better
    when I opened up the workshop and attic space , as a lack of territory large enough
    for four was part of the problem. They were allowed outdoors in the backyard, but
    not onto the streets .

    One pelt on the wall, and the others fall into line.

    Damn, I crack me up.

    I guess my ex wife has told her cat some terrible things about me. That cat try's to bite me every time it sees me. It will walk up to me looking all sweet and purring. Usually it will take a few passes by me, then out of the blue.....it will turn around and try to bite me. Even knowing the thing is going to try and bite me, it still manages to get me every now and then. Apparently, I am the only person in the world to ever be bitten by that cat.

    She must tell that cat some awful things about me.........

    One of our cats is 17 years old now. She's become very vocal over the last year, she just won't shut up. She's become very lippy.

    She has gotten into this bad habit of coming into the bedroom and rather than just jump on the bed she will just look over the edge of the bed on my side and just ***** and moan relentlessly until I wake up and help her onto the bed. Once I get her on the bed she jumps back off and 15 minutes later we start the same cycle over. *sigh* o_O

    But, we love her. She's been with us a long time and she's still very loving. But she's just become a cranky, bossy old lady.

    I read that sometimes old cats get dementia and do that kind of thing.

    We've had 3 that do a similar thing, and it might be love bites, seriously. Some cats do that . One of
    our Singapuras will be all ruby and cuddly, and make sudden , snapping lunges, so we have to always watch
    out. Not pissy or grumpy, just freaky. That's not even the freakiest thing he does :eek:

    I have no particularly interesting cat stories, they have be amazing since day one. I was worried a bit about scratching, weird behaviors, etc. but they've only been very sweet critters.

    I've always really liked cats, and dogs too. Cats are really great "keyboard players" when they're happy and feeling affectionate. If you're around cats you'll get it..

    Winston waits until I'm done cleaning his box. As soon I'm done washing my hands, he's right back in it to "rechristen" it.
    I just shrug and go about my business. Once per day is all you get, bud...

    Mine doesn't do poop everywhere thing. Only in the box. But does ambush me from the knee down every time I go to the grill out back.
