Not your ordinary New Year's Day post but for weeks now I have been wanting to share something with you.
You know how I am about my two outside cats worrying about them all the time. I did a post about trying to find a place outside that would protect them against the coyotes and freezing weather. Well I never could figure out a place so against my better judgement I have been letting them use the back hallway and bathroom on nights that are dangerously cold.
I close the door leading into the back bedroom and the other door that opens into the front of the house. Hard to explain this old farm house. But in this hallway there is a back door that leads outside. So it is easy to let them come in and out.
Their really tame cats and would make wonderful inside pets but I have Tinkerbell and I don't let her around them since she slaps anything she does not understand and I have a feeling they might slap back and they have claws and she does not.
Turns out that YEP they are literally using my bathroom.
My routine when they spend the night in the bathroom is to let them out the back door as soon as I can and then I clean their litter box out put it away in the storage room, vacuum and mop the floor.
Wish you could of seen the look on my face the morning I discovered their little secret.
Honey those cats had used the toilet. Blew my freaking mind. I had no idea that cats do this but as you can see from the pictures I borrowed off the internet that they do use the toilet.
Problem is my two don't flush! Seriously I told my kids and they did not believe me. One reason I have not shared this with you because I wasn't sure you would either.
Since the morning I found out their secret they have used it every night but only to pee. hahaha
I am dying to capture them on video. Not sure how to go about that but I have browsed Amazon to see if I could find something cheap to buy and catch them on camera.
Who knows I might could send it in to America's Funnest Video. haha
Rang in the New Year reading Spirit Horses the book Patti from the New Sixty told us about. Been trying to figure out how to find it since I discovered I could not get it on my Nook. Then Patti reminded me I could download it from Amazon to my PC so that's what I did. It is a good book and looking forward to reading it again tonight.
My grand babies and now their dad are still sick from when I was there Christmas. They found out today that Kaci also now has Strep Throat. Her and Bailey have been sick their whole Christmas vacation and now Clint caught it so Andrea is trying to take care of all of them. Poor babies they are so miserable. Wish I could help.
Just now got a phone call from my oldest brother Billy. He ask if I wanted them to fix me a plate of ham, peas and cabbage and bring it out to me. Heck Yeah! I never turn down his and Linda's cooking. Yummy so I have to go and at least comb my hair before they arrive.
Another year has come and gone! Boy do those 365 days pass fast. Already down the first day and can't say I accomplished much except telling you another crazy story about what goes on out here on the North Forty.
It's just cold and wet so I am staying mostly inside. My kids gave me a new toy for Christmas a flat screen TV so I have to admit I have watched a few movies this week. It sure is nice to have it.
My decorations are still up but will try and take them down tomorrow.
