Can someone PUHLEESE tell me why one of my cats enjoys going to the litter box, standing outside of it with his back feet, while he flings litter and doo doo from the box out onto the floor of the laundry room with his front paws? It's driving me insane. I want to hook up a little electric current to zap him each time he does this maneuver of his. Not a big zap. Just a teensy-weensy zip to show him its wrong and I don't want to walk in litter and cat crap in my bare feet anymore!!!

And to think, we're about to be gifted with kittens from our female. I was sure she was going to give birth by now, but apparently the little felines need more time in the oven. Her belly is so swollen.

...goes off to clean kitty litter and ick off my floor.....

    Pamela, dear, whose decision was it to give house room to these noxious creatures? Yours, Pamela, dear. Was that the decision of a sensible person? What do these animals contribute to your happiness? Despite my deep and undying love for you, I am glad that your cats crap in your house. Those of my neighbours think that my garden is a public convenience.

  2. I love my cats, really I do vicus dear. I love them so much that I keep them indoors so as to protect them from the wild beasties of the neighborhood in which we live. There are woods, with creatures like racoons and coyotes who would enjoy killing my cats.

    I'm sure my husband would like to kill some of them as well, but he's thus far restrained himself.

    I applaud his restraint, although it's his fault that the female cat is pregnant.

  3. My cat used to pull that trick all the time! I think she was just spreading her "mark", claiming more territory!

  4. Well they can't have any more of my territory!!!

    The female always gets mad when we have dirty clothes on the lauadry room floor. She shows us her displeasure by peeing on the pile of clothing. Right next to her litter box. Very disturbing.

  5. i really don't want you to explain how it's your husbands fault your cat is pregnant.
    and i don't want pictures of the kid-erm, kittens, either.
    thank you anyway.

  6. He is responsible by letting the cat out of the house. He was hoping she'd leave, but nooooooo. She went out, had some fun and then returned with a uterus full of kittens.

    She's ready to give birth at any moment.

  7. Sheesh, she does this stuff because she's an animal. The best thing I did was to get my cat one of those little pet mini-doors so she can go out and use the lawn as opposed to using my whole house as a toilet. I really wish I lived next to Vicus!

  8. Re: the kicky the litter cat litter thing? My cats used to do that when they got sick of the brand of litter. at least, I'd switch brands and it wouldn't happen again for months. honest, this worked for me. give it a shot!

    *secretly relieved that all is explained*

    Carmenzta. I wish you lived next to me to. But, geography notwithstanding, come and crap in my garden if that is what butters your toast.

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…



Back on the horse
Monkey on his back
I see no light
Not even a crack
Back to delusions
Back to the lies
I see through his words
He can't hear my cries

Back into his soul
Back into his veins
The poison he pours
Dark liquid his chains

Backed into a corner
Heartbroken and torn
Back into the needle
The eye of the storm

Back to the wall
Soul bruised torn and broken
Back to my pain
His eyes half open

Back into the horror
Will he ever come back
Back into the nightmare
A needle in a sack

Back into his childhood
I loved him with fury
Looking back on his life
His choices my jury

How did this happen
Back to evil and sin
How can he do this
Lines on his skin

Back to my weeping
Back to my sorrow
My son, my love,
Has no more tomorrows
