"Why is my hat wet?"

This is the statement I woke up to this morning.

My kitty Ebenezer has developed a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). When cats develop UTIs, they tend to eliminate outside the box on any surface and in any surface. In Ebenezer's case, he tends to eliminate in anything he can wiggle his little bum into, like my potted plants. Last time he developed a UTI, he wiggled himself into my slouchy beige leather purse and relieved himself all over it's contents.

This time, he chose Brian's baseball cap which just happened to be on our kitchen table - so my tablecloth got doused as well. Last night I filled my Victoria's Secret online shopping cart with some new items to take with me when I go to Jamaica next month. Between a urinalysis, antibiotic treatment, and anti-inflammatory meds, I'm going to need the money that I was planning on spending on a pair of black sandals, a bikini, a bikini coverup, and a fabulous maxi dress.

***Sobbing softly into my laptop***

Thank goodness the little dude is worth it.

"Hat? What hat? I don't know nothin' about no stinkin' hat!"


  1. I totally feel you- I gave up like fifteen wardrobes to deal with all of my puppy's medical issues. I hope your kitty feels better though!
