Much ado about much a doo-doo



Cats are wonderful in their own way.

Ada, for instance, loves to nuzzle me, and give me playful little bites when she wants my attention. That’s usually when I am trying to sleep.

And if I stretch out for a nap on the sofa, Adelaide will invariably jump up onto my tummy, and go nose to nose with me until I pay attention.

Today I was not thinking wonderful thoughts about Adelaide. For the second time in a week she has pooped on the inside door mat in the Lanai. But today, shoe and sockless I stepped right into her deposit.

I did not chastise her (she does not speak English) but my language was raw as I cleaned up the mess on the mat and on my foot.

I am at least grateful that she is not an elephant!


  1. Some cats don't always like sharing litter boxes. Try putting a second litter box out in the lanai, and see if she'll use it out there.

    I've never stepped in poop (not kitty poop anyway), but have woken up and walked into the kitchen squelching many a cold wet hairball in the dark. Yuk!!!

  2. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww is all I have to say about that.
