Poop Is A Four-Letter Word


Sunni! The cream-and-white kitten Becki asked about in the comments the other day.

Then there’s Sugar and Spice and Smoky. And not to forget Buttercup. And my cousin’s cats Callie and Inky and Persian. EIGHT CATS!

I’m becoming one of those chick cliches………..

I need some chickens.

But back to the POOP. There is POOP. Poop under my desk, in the SHOWER, in the bedroom…… Eight cats. Eight million piles of poop. I don’t keep a litterbox. They are supposed to go OUTSIDE. O.U.T.S.I.D.E. Outside.

They are banned, I’m telling you. BANNED. Well, okay, except for Sunni. And Sugar. And Smoky. And Callie and Persian and Inky. And Buttercup, and well, Spice can open the door ALL BY HERSELF, so…….

    They are so incredibly cute, you tend to overlook it when they leave “presents” here and there! At least that is how it is with my four mini-dachshunds. I get so aggravated when I have to clean up after them, then they do something cute and sweet and all is forgiven.

    That is the sweetest photograph.

    But I would go insane without a litter box for my Sammy cat.:yuck:

    Aww! How cute! I have two cats myself, and I can understand the poop situation. Although we have two litter boxes, so I really shouldn’t. Nothing like stepping somewhere and finding you just stepped in … well haha I think you get where I’m going with that.

    On a sidenote, I’m reading The Beast Within right now, and I’m loving it!

    I have 6 cats (well one I’m babysitting for my daughter) and the rule is: one more litter box than cats – sooooooooo that means you need 9 litter boxes roflmao. I would think if you just got a couple for when they are inside – after all some are still babies lol.

    Aww that’s an adorable photo!! :thumbsup:

    Have chickens. Both feathered and non-feathered. Overnight shipping negotiable.

    I hear ya on the poop. Really I do. But what’s REALLY precious is when they’ve just come in from outside and DIE in the litterbox. Oh…while YOU’RE trying to go to the bathroom.
    Cats really ARE sadistic.
    It’s why I love them so.

    8??? Holy cat! If I even stepped into your home, I’d be sneezing up a storm. But they are cuties!

  8. Becki says:

    We have three. Two we adopted from the animal shelter, one as a soaked ball of fur that showed up on our doorstop after a summer Texas rainstorm.

    One ALWAYS poops next to the box. Another pees on the morning paper if he feels ignored during the morning rush.

    But they are all part of the family.:hyper:

    My sister has two cats and even though they are outdoor cats too she still kids a litter box downstairs, just in case. The only time one of her cats pooped in the house was when he was shut in the closet all day.(he hasn’t learned how to open doors yet)

  10. Jill says:

    Poop in the house? They’d all be in big time trouble with me, lol!

  11. Melissa says:

    The kittens are absolutely precious! Look at those rabbit feet. 😆 Is Butterboo jealous now that there are so many new babies around? :mrgreen:

  12. Susan says:

    Awww, great pic!

    If it’s not poop it’s a fur ball. I guess looking so cute is the way they makeup for it!:rolleyes:

    What a cute picture !!

    I love cats and kittens, but I am allergic to them so have to admire from pictures or from a distance…….. 🙂
