Waiting for the other shoe to drop...

After the mess in the living room on the 14th, we started closing it off when we went to bed.  As a result, the litter box in that room isn't used very often but no messes in three days, no fights, all is quiet.  Which is why we're waiting for something to happen.  We don't have many uneventful days around here and as soon as we become complacent, something upsets the apple cart.

Sassy has been sneezing a lot the last few days and her right eye has started to leak.  But she is eating, drinking and playing like normal.  The only weird thing was for two days, she stayed very close to me.  She slept on this platform, in my craft room closet or under the shelf in my craft room.  She didn't come down at dinner and sleep on the hearth as usual.  But yesterday afternoon and today she seems her usual self.  In fact, she was only up here once today and that was to use the litter box.  Her right eye is still leaking though which worries me.  Her left has always been leaky but never the right.  Since she seems OK right now, I'm just going to keep an eye on her.

This platform is a favorite for both cats.  You can clearly see the tiny feeder I keep filled with peanuts.  The birds visit this feeder frequently and both cats would dearly love to catch them.  If you look closely, you can see the tears in the screen that Sadie has made by snagging her claws.  The screen in the family room actually has holes you can pass an egg through.  We're still having the declawing debate but leaning toward replacing screens as needed rather than having surgery.
