Today is Monday, April 20th. Sassy has been using the box with the puppy pad religiously since Friday and last night for the first time in several weeks, she spent the night out. Carl said she pooped in the box before he went to bed but we had planned to leave her out. So, this morning, I pulled the litter box out of the cabinet in the laundry room and put the box with the puppy pad in. A half an hour later, she had used the litter box in the cabinet. We do leave the door to the cabinet open. We'll do that for a few weeks assuming she keeps using the box with the pad. Then we will try with the box closed. We do change the pad immediately after we notice she's used it.
Sadie is on one pill every three days on her way to being weaned off of them. This morning we had a cat spat in the family room. I'm not sure who started it but Sadie ended up back up upstairs and Sassy stayed in the family room. While we worry about their interaction, they need to work it out themselves. We will break it up if it gets vicious, but for now we're just watching. That's the update for now. Fingers crossed.
