He looks all innocent, doesn't he?

He looks so peaceful and innocent, right? The kitty you want to just cuddle and squish with hugs.

But he is pure evil. EVIL. Well, maybe not evil. Skittish. Dumb. Overreactive. Annoying. Cloying. Whiny. And did I mention skittish?

We adopted the Worthless Pet when he was 8. We were his 4th family that we know about. Obviously, some "issues" are going to come with a cat that has been rehomed 4 times. Most of the issues are annoying, but you can live with them. He insists that his litterbox is pristine or he will pee right outside the box. By pristine, I mean absolutely NOTHING remotely resembling cat waste of any kind, ever. Yes, it's a bit trying to live with, but we handle it.

However, the skittishness (is that a word?) is often beyond annoying and runs over to absolutely drive me bonkers territory. For example, I was petting him today while I was laying on the sofa moaning... which is another story altogether. Ah, rubbing the head, scritching under the chin, getting those ears all cuddly rubbed and life is good and then..... The Boy actually had the gall to move in his chair. Freaking cat gets all whacked out and scratches my foot with two incredibly deep, bleeding wounds. Like fill up a bandaid until it leaks wounds. Just call me Curt Shilling for I will have a bloody sock. All The Boy did was move. Shift his weight. Bammmm, I'm a new member of the walking wounded.

It hurts. He did it with his back claws, so it's really deep and ugly. It will take weeks to heal. And now I'm in a grumpy mood. Ok, I'm exaggerating. I'm just annoyed because I can't wear flip flops. The wound is right on the index toe and under it, and flip flops will kill. Damn.


What is it with Kendall and Spike on AMC? Are the writers trying to get the entire deaf community up in arms? Like, how insulting was her dialog about Spike not being deaf. I didn't realize deafness was such a terrible thing that death was preferable.


To the person on HoFo that told the truth AT LAST, thank you. I have a feeling I know who you are, but I'd appreciate it if you would email me so I can thank you properly. Like with gifts of frankensense and murr. You totally rock! I just wish you had done it earlier, but no matter. Finally it's out there and for once it has shut up the mob. The funniest thing about it is, I don't even know about the original incident. I have NO CLUE whatsoever as to what happened. None. But I sure would like to know what I've been blamed for over and over for at least 3 years.


Off to take The Girl to her doctor's appt at Children's. Yippee! She's going to have the first successful appt. in almost 2 years and we're psyched to see her doctor and report in.

Arg. I have a cat who is exactly the same about the litter box. It is driving us nuts. We've had automated litter boxes in the past and none of them lived up to the hype. We are currently considering this model...


But...having been burned in the past, we are hesitant to commit. I'll let you know.

I'm glad your cat has such a nice home. Thank God for tolerant animal lovers.

I don't know what HoFo is, but I love me some internet drama. Care to share?

This is the hofo. It is one of MANY 'unsupported' forums on craigslist. This one started out as a 'secret' forum about 3 or 4 years ago, I don't really know when because it was 'invitation only' until it was outed. It's really a cesspool of internet drama, with lots of blame, and very little recriminations. It's like a really sad little gang of meanies. One week it's "lets gang up on X" and the next week it's "let's gang up on Y". A total mob mentality. It's HIGHLY entertaining. I rarely even bother anymore because it's the same old same old week after week, month after month. But if you're new to it, you'll enjoy the 'wow, we're SO hip and cool and we love to talk about our shaved vajayjay's' vibe. Have fun!

Meh. It sounds like something I could probably live without.
