Dear Alice,

Could you leave the mice outside in the future?
If you are going to leave them in my pants, please, please, please, make sure they are deceased next time.

Love, Marcel


p.s. I walked around in those pants for 15 minutes this morning, before I noticed some inexplicable movements.

Ok so I just made a sound that is not usually heard in nature

Dear Baby Coffee Bean,

You just started purring when petted.  You constantly cuddle with me if you're not getting dinner from mama.  Can you stop being so cute so I can get some housework done?

Love,

The babysitter

Also, I know you have suddenly developed a passion for yogurt, but you have to wait for the human to be done with their part first.

We had a cat that loved yogurt.  He'd be up on Mom's lap, trying to stick his head in while she was eating it.  So she started taking the lid off, put a spoonful of yogurt on the lid on the floor for the cat and if she ate quick, she could finish her yogurt before the cat would bug her again.  Then she'd put the empty cup down.  Once, the cat got it stuck on his head!  It took Mom a while to free him because she was laughing so hard.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

My big tomcat Neko is a yogurt junkie.  It doesn't matter what flavor, he'll try to mug me for it.  I've had to lock myself in my office just to get to eat in peace.  He hasn't gotten his head stuck, but only because I usually eat Yoplait & he is a BIG cat, but it is not for lack of trying.

Ms_Cellany, My Tyra kitty is a groomer.  She usually grooms DH because his hair is shorter.  When she tries to groom me, it is 'lick, lick, ptooooi, lick, lick, ptooooi"  >:D  My hair is a LOT longer.  ;D

Dear whichever cat decided to pee on my bed, not once, but twice:

STOP THAT. >:( You have ruined my feather blanket, and if I can't get that smell out of my mattress, I might just be tempted to turn you into a dingdangity fur coat! Argh!

No love,
the Not-Furry One.

(Not a stress thing, I think one of the cats is not feeling very well. At least I've narrowed it down to either Lily or Sophie, but I really have no way of telling which one unless I catch them peeing on something else... *sigh*)

Liliane - you need a bottle of Nature's Miracle.  Its available at pet supply places, in the Clean Up aisle.  Use it like the package says - saturate the smelly spot, let it dry naturally.  If it dries in less than 6 hours you didn't use enough, try again. 

If the smell can be removed from your mattress and feather blanket Nature's Miracle is the product that will do it. 

It may leave a water mark.  Use any upholstery cleaner to get rid of that.

I've got a bottle, and it seems to be working on my mattress. The blanket's beyond repair - whoever made the mess dribbled all the way down the blanket and it's soaked into the feathers. I did want to get a proper blanket shell and better feathers, I guess now I have an excuse... *sigh*

Can you wash it with vinegar?

No. It's a full-size blanket and there's no laundromats with a washer big enough. Trust me, I've looked into every option, I really don't want to have to remake the blanket, but that's what has to happen. :-\

I still think Nature's Miracle can save the feather blanket.  They way I see it, that blanket is headed for the trash.  So try it.  The worst that can happen is that the blanket still goes to the trash.

I've already tried - it only made it smell even worse, actually, probably because the feathers got wet. It's alright, I really did need an excuse to get a proper blanket shell and better feathers.

(ETA: I have given it another soaking with Nature's Miracle and I'll let it sit overnight. Mutter grumble cats...)

Try taking it to the dry cleaners and ask if they can have it washed - you'd be surprised at how big the commercial washing machines are.

That's not a bad idea, I'm just afraid I'd be charged an arm and a leg (if they'd even take it) for 1: oversize item, and 2: cat pee smell. It's...pretty vile. I can smell it a good ten feet away...  :-\

Dear Beankitty,

Yes the male-person-who-is-not-Mama and I are trying for a baby.  I promise we do NOT need your advice (you're spayed and a kitty virgin, so far as I know) and that we have got this handled.  Sitting at the foot of the bed and watching the entire event is creepy.  Holding up scorecards is just unnecessary.

Love,
Mama-Bean

ps - Not-the-Mama did not appreciate you climbing up onto his back  .03 seconds after we were "finished" and trying to nap there.
