So I am not really in the mood to blog about x-mas just yet.
One of the cats peed on the aerobed Friday so today they were off to the vet. After that David dragged the boys down to the basement for the night. When Milford starting acting funny Saturday I tried to carry him downstairs. Below is my "Nelly" band-aid covering where he impaled me. Forgot he still had those back claws.
Apparently Milford is stressed and is holding it in. AKA refusing to go to the bathroom so that while he is sleeping he loses control. This has caused him to have a bacterial infection. So he is going to be on meds for the next month or so to get rid of that.
The vet also recommended aroma therapy. I would scoff at this and will not mind if all of you readers out there do, but hey, I will try anything to keep the rest of my furniture as is. So tomorrow it is off to find these plug-in thingies that release "kitty mom" pheromones. And also a third litter box which apparently we have to put in a new location. No location is ideal. I guess we will have to suffer through having it in the master bathroom.
In the meantime we have shut all of the doors and put aluminum foil on the love seat and chair to discourage the cats from sleeping there. I am not brave enough to put out the new throw rug we got for Christmas.
The vet also recommended checking out this site: http://www.indoorcat.org/
Lots of nifty ideas on how to keep your indoor kitty happy.
This is all extremely frustrating because we already spoil these two rotten.
Yesterday I did manage to get in 20 minutes on my new toy!!! (Clarification, the trainer is the new toy :) I already had my cool bike! (A Giant OCR2))
And I FINALLY sat down and planned out my Boston training and the base phase of my Steelhead training.
More on that later.
