Better Look Out Where Im Going
I have mentioned over and over how much I love having pets,
right? Well, I do and probably always will, however this past
week when entering the house, I noticed that I was driving
over something odd with my electric wheelchair. Upon further
inspection, Robin (my aide) and I discovered that it was a
recently undigested kitty snack. Unfortunately, I had run
over it with my back wheel and was dragging it through the
house before Robin could stop me. When she did finally stop
me, she was rushing around with a wet paper towel. What was
so lucky is the fact that Sam, my adorable feline, didnt
appear to feel ill anymore. Plus, Moxie, our daily more adorable
Dalmatian, apparently did not notice and therefore didnt
scarf it down.
that she is my first dog ever, and I hope that its not
just her, but she will eat virtually anything! Shortly after
we got her, I noticed that she was paying an unusually long
amount of time investigating Sams litter box. Herman
explained that she was trying to find cat poop. He then told
me that many dogs for some reason really enjoyed eating cat
poop. Well, this is absolutely abhorrent to me, especially
when Moxie is always cruising to give kisses. Omygod! She
also spends a ridiculous amount of time investigating and
licking her butt.
a cat does his business in the privacy of his own enclosed
bathroom. Except, of course, when he eats his treats too quickly.
Actually, I have noticed that even when he eats his regular
food too quickly, it generally makes a second appearance by
way of kitty puke.
never had children, nor have I ever had the desire to procreate.
In fact, I remember telling my Mom when I was about ten, "Mom,
I dont think I ever want to have kids." To which
my Jewish mother replied (as only a Jewish mother can) "Why
dont you just kill me now!" But I can almost imagine
what it must be like as I raise Sam and Moxie, and experience
all the upset stomach trauma.
news is that every room in this house has hardwood floors
and so clean up is not that big of a deal. Keep in mind that
clean up duty is generally not done by me though I delegate
it. Its important to know that when I was able to clean
up, I had very little tolerance for any animal messes as it
would upset my stomach almost as much as whatever pet had
been sick. That still holds true today.
have to be very careful about the amount of kitty snacks and
table scraps I give to both of my "children." After
all, if I dont look out for what they eat I have to
look out for where Im going
