Love Is....

....My office floor (thank God it's hard wood) being completely covered in pungent cat urine because Ebenezer is sick again. On the bright side, the floor being covered in cat urine is actually a GOOD thing: a very, very good thing. Urine coming out of his body means his urinary tract IS NOT blocked, which means he isn't running the risk of kidney failure and death. I will take urine soaked floors over kidney failure and death any day.

I was concerned all day for my little guy as he was going in and out of the litter box frequently without producing any urine. I called the vet, and she recommended I give him a dose of his anti-anxiety medication - yes cats have anti-anxiety medication. Apparently anxiety in cats has a direct correlation to urinary tract inflammation thus the anti-anxiety meds.

In case you were wondering.

Love is having a house call vet appointment already set up for tomorrow at 8 am.

Love is being excited to FINALLY be able to collect enough urine from his box for a proper sample to give to the vet tomorrow.

Love is not caring that my office smells like I own 49 cats that urinate everywhere.

Love is laying on the urine soaked floor with Ebenezer so that he feels comforted and not alone.

Love is the fact that I smell like the bottom of a litter pan and I could give two sh*ts - as long as my baby feels better.

I have an insane love for my kitties.

Please keep all crazy cat lady judgments to yourselves. I can't be fabulous ALL the time.



  1. Awww - poor kitty! I hope he's okay!

  2. I know Kelli has told you ... but I just LOVE your blog!!! I am NOT a blog follower. I repeat, I am not a follower. I pretty much only care about Kelli's kids on blogs, but I was bored one day and read yours. I have been reading it for quite sometime (makes me sound creepy). Your writing makes me laugh and makes me think about life!!

    I hope your little kitty feels better. I love cats too ... Kelli came close to KILLING one of my cats years ago and I will never forgive her for it. Okay, I guess I have forgiven her, but still hold it against her head! :)

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful blog!!


  3. Awww Molly - thank you! It's great to hear from you and I'm so glad that you like my crazy ramblings and have decided to comment.

    Thank you as well for sending my sweet little dude well wishes. It's been pretty melancholy around here lately, and your comment has made my morning.

    Glad to hear your doing well - :)

    ps - we all know Kelli has a deep hatred for kitties - I think she's a freak of nature...hahaha, sorry Kelli!
