Here a cat, there a cat....

Everyday is a new adventure here.  Spring has given us a few warm days and no matter where Sadie is in the house, awake or asleep, if there is a whisper of a window going up, she's right there.  Sassy likes the window but Sadie is obsessed and if the weather is nice we try to make up for the years she had no access to a window by providing as many open windows and sliding doors as she can handle.

Sadie is still taking her meds every other day but I don't see her temperament changing.  She's still aggressive on occasion and we still bleed now and then.  I'm better at recognizing the quickly changing emotions than Carl is and can usually get out of the way, so I bleed less, but when she catches you with a claw, she digs deep. 

Sassy is still on bathroom lockup at night but as soon as she potties she's out of there.  We say "poop will set you free".  We've only had two accidents since we started locking her up in the laundry room and they've only been when we've relented and let her out before we see evidence in the litter box.  Yesterday we left early in the morning and only Carl came home (I was at a craft show all day).  She hadn't done anything in the box so Carl left her there for another hour, finally he took pity on her and let her out and later he found she'd used the box in the laundry room - go, Sassy.  This morning she had already gone.  She's a smart cat, she knows what "potty" means and if she wants out she needs to go potty.  She can do it on command if she has to go, she's so excited when she poops in the box, so we just don't get it when she doesn't.  I fear it will always be a mystery to us.

  1. I'm glad you had some freedom for the craft show.

    Sadie sounds like she's got petty much what she wants right now, so that's a good thing.

    Sassy pretty much likes to please you - I'd go with that, if you can.

    Happy Easter to you all!!!
