Caffeine & Kitty Treats

It’s a treat, not a meal!

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?
