Carl came up to the bedroom last night to tell me both girls had been in the laundry room at the same time (small room). Sadie came out first with Sassy on her heels, smelling and batting at Sadie's tail. Sadie paid no attention, walked to the basement and left Sassy in the family room. No hissing, no outrage, just calm. He was so excited he had to run up and share.
No accidents last night that we can find - or smell.
The girls were fed at 6:00 a.m. (mom and dad slept in). Both ate their normal amount of food. Sassy threw up a little liquid so she might be working on another hair ball. She coughed one up on my desk two days ago; luckily I was able to grab a piece of paper and put it under her before the big event, so no damage was done. She has a lot of hair and grooms quite a bit and won't take the paste for hairballs, sooooo. We deal!
Nothing in the boxes yet and it's 8:04 a.m., but I'm hopeful. Carl said he cleaned the boxes before bed last night (we scoop twice a day) and as soon as he finished cleaning the one in the laundry room. Sassy made a deposit, so maybe there's another hairball somewhere we haven't found. She is now officially 'off-schedule', so I don't know if she'll do anything else this morning and she's sound asleep in the family room window. We have opened the living room and Sadie spent some time with me in the craft room. There were two pees in the laundry room, one from each cat, but nothing since we woke up. So, we wait. I'll edit again if something happens.
Edited 10:18 a.m. - the strangest thing, both cats are asleep but someone scraped up the litter in the laundry room and didn't do anything in the box. We smooth out the litter every time we clean so we can tell immediately if it's been used. All scraped up, no poop. Hmmmmm, anybody?
