Have you ever told your kids this?
Kid: “I want a cookie”.
You: “You’ve already had 5 of them”.
Kid: “Just one more, please”?
You: “They are supposed to be a treat, not a meal”.
Now let’s take this a step further. Have you ever said this to your cat? I have. Johnny has had a voracious appetite for his kitty treats. I buy 5 three ounce bags of treats when I go to restock.
Is this a sign of getting old? He’s been a good boy. He’s been using his litter box, so it looks like the urinary tract infection is finally passing. I can tell that his leg is still sore, but it looks like the CBD tincture is helping with that. I think he’s starting to get tired of having medicine squirted in his mouth. Pills with Johnny are totally out of the question. The vet suggested that I use pill pockets to hide the pill. Hide a pill from a cat??? Absolutely ridiculous! He just eats around the pill.
The only thing I regret a little at this point is that I had to cut him off from the bedroom where he likes to hide out. About 4 days ago, I followed him into the bedroom and found that he had urinated in 4 different spots on my mattress. I’ve soaked it with Nature’s Miracle, but the smell isn’t coming out of it. I’m open to any ideas to save my 30+ year old mattress.
Maybe he was telling me that after 30 years it’s time to get a new one.
One other thing…
The brown pillow that Johnny is laying on is a pillow that I won at a carnival sideshow the year before I got Johnny. He quite literally claimed it as his own the night that I brought him home. I wanted him to have his pillow after I sorta barred him from the bedroom. I brought it out to the living room and just dropped it next to the couch. About an hour or so later I saw that he had pulled the pillow over by the fireplace. Just to see what would happen, I moved it over in front of the television. He pulled it right back over to the fireplace. I did this several times. Each time he pulled it right back to the same spot.
He knows where he wants it. Who am I to argue with him?
