I use an app to track my period, ever since I stopped taking birth control after my husband's vasectomy, and now I remember the one and only (well, the not getting pregnant was great) reason I took it. My period is so sporadic! My app said it wasn't supposed to start for 11 days, and I wasn't having any physical symptoms to make me rethink that, until Friday I started having cramps. So I was like, oh, looks like my period will start in a few days instead of eleven. Oh, wait no, it's starting right now. Wth body.
We've been having a bit of trouble with one cat peeing on the mat outside the litter box. We are not 100% sure which cat, but we are assuming it's Toki. We've been trying everything: cleaning the box every day, spraying the mat with anti-urine stuff, letting her go in the front by herself to use the side patch of dirt... Which seems to work for awhile, then BAM, pee puddles show up. Right now it's been good, no pee for three days. I have SIX, yes, SIX FUCKING LITTER BOXES set up in various places so it's not like she doesn't have options. I decided to see if maybe she needed more attention so I camped out in the spare room Friday night to hang out with her. She decided to sleep on the couch in the living room that night so I spend an uncomfortable night for no reason. But still no pee! I'm not sure what is working but I'm not sleeping on the floor again.
One of the stray cats that I haven't seen in over six months showed up the other morning!!!!!!!! Neil saw him when he went downstairs to shower and called out for me. I got out of bed so fast. I thought they had all been eaten by the coyotes (Nextdoor app reported a lot of... dead cats this summer). He looked great: smooth coat, ears clean; just hungry. It was such a great moment. I've seen him one more time since then, so I've been trying to put food out again even if I don't see him. Maybe the others will show up too!!!!
