Miss Oswin joins the fight against plastic

Miaow

Even though I am a respectable feline and the mbc in the wwu, even I have to visit a certain place from time to time. The little kitty's room so to say. Nice and private with a roof and a door. So, imagine my surprise on Sunday when my lovely room had gone!

Instead there was a washing up bowl filled to the millimeter with some plastic thingies. Definitely not my high absorbant clay pellets that you can really dig down in. Not even the wooden pellets that fall apart when you look at them. Just plastic little pellets that don't do a thing! Well, I wasn't going to use that!!

But then on Monday morning, I really really really had to go. I was thinking about rebelling, but only for a minute. So, I went on the open to all bowl and well... did what any well brought up lady does. I peed!

Not ten minutes later, guess what: my own private room was there again! As if by magic. While Mara was working in the kitchen doing something with ehm, my P? And then she threw the pellets with the P away! Those two-leggers sure are funny.

She had better keep my little private room there where it belongs from now on, because next time I might just rebel. Jus' sayin'...

Note from the editor: I have recently noticed that Miss O was licking her tummy a lot. A LOT! And when we visited the vet last Friday for her annual check-up (all okay), the vet thought it might be one of three things: bladder infection, allergy or stress. So, we had to do a P-test. Which came back as P with blood and infection cells. She now has a treatment course for ten days after which another bout of plastic pellets will decide whether it has cleared up or not!

    MOL oh Miss O, you had me wondering how you could fight agains plastic - but rebel is pawhaps more accurate! Holding on to your pee would certainly not help with what was discovered though, so next time, a bit quicker, okay??? Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

    1. I am trying to get her to eat and drink now which she is not doing. She is outside/inside now (ie the door is open and she waits for it to close so she can get treats), but that is it!

  2. We have managed to get out cat to eat wet food. It is human tuna -- light -- which isn't much more expensive than actual cat food and really less expensive than some. There is a theory that wet food is better for their system, but she still eats dry too. At least there is more of a balance now. And the cat who just ate dry now craves the tuna.

  3. Hopefully Miss Oswin feels better soon. (We have never heard of those plastic pellets things. But it seems pretty clever.)

    1. The plastic pellets are used to please the cat really. They need something to dig into for some reason. However, regular litter absorbs the urine or gets absorbed by it, so you can't see what's what.

  4. Oh Miss O. I'm so sorry to hear about your infection...I hope and pray the meds clear it quickly. Oh Angel Madi would get her nose bent out of joint if she ventured up to her loo to find something amiss.
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. Arthur makes it short ! If the content of his litterbox doesn't suit him he just pees on the floor or even better on a carpet or a doormat ! And there is nothing to do he is so stubborn and 17 years old !
