Pee Problem

So, I'm having a bit of a problem with Mokey. I went away to Dallas for a week, and had a friend of mine look in on my cats. There were no problems...until I got back. I'm guessing that Mokey was mad that I was gone for a week (actually, it was less than a week...I only left them for 4 days), and she started peeing in the corner of my room. Well, I scrubbed and cleaned and then I sprayed that "Nature's Miracle" (the spray that's supposed to get rid of the scent, so cats won't go back to that same spot). Then I covered the spot with a towel. Well, she peed on the towel. Then, I put her food there b/c I was told that cats won't pee where they eat. Wrong! She peed right next to her food bowl. Then, I put tin foil there b/c cats are supposedly frightened by the sound tin foil makes when they step on it...not Mokey! She peed on the tin foil. Then, I put a new, fresh litter box there (since my vet said that maybe she didn't like going to the bathroom in the same litter box that Gobo uses)...she peed NEXT to the new litter box, but not IN it! So, I cleaned, scrubbed and vacuumed the entire area...then I put TV stand w/my keyboard right in the corner where she likes to pee. THEN, I put the new litter box right in front of the keyboard/TV stand. Things were good for 3 or 4 days...until last night....when she peed in the opposite corner of my room! ARGH! I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow morning to see if it's a urinary tract infection or something of that nature, but I have a feeling this is just a behavioral thing...and if so, I don't know what to do!!!!

I'm so stressed and frustrated by this all, and I'm not getting any sleep at night. I
could close my bedroom door at night, but then I can't snuggle with my kitties. Gobo is a great snuggler, and I can't lock Mokey out without locking Gobo out (since the litter box and food are not in my bedroom, so they need the door open to get to those things). So, if I keep Mokey out of my room at all times, then I have to also keep Gobo out at all times...and that stinks! I don't know if Mokey is still angry about my 4 day trip, but I'm just getting so upset by this all...and I honestly don't know what to do! I'm actually hoping that it's a UTI or something like that, so I can give her meds and she'll stop doing this. But, if it's behavioral, I'm just S.O.L.!

Snippity Snip

So, it's that time of year again....time for a haircut!!! Gobo has been getting a nice Summer buzz cut for years now, but this was Mokey's first haircut. I was so nervous for her (since she is really skittish), but I was also excited to see what she'd look like. I think Gobo looks like a little lion when he gets his hair cut for the Summer... actually, he looks a little silly (a silly lion?). It's probably because of the color of his fur. Gobo is a "nude" color, so when he gets a shave, he looks naked!

I think Mokey's haircut turned out even better than Gobo's. You can barely tell that she is all shaved!!! The color of her fur makes the shave look so nice and smooth. I really love it on her. Unfortunately, she had a rough time with the whole bathing routine. The person at the "salon" said that Mokey got really scared in the bathtub, and tried to leap out. She cut her own paw and was bleeding a bit. She's fine now, but I was so sad to hear that she was freaking out like that. I hate that she was so scared and there was nothing I could do to help her. Hopefully, she's enjoying the nice, cool Summer cut....especially with the crazy humidity that we have right now.

So, the haircut torture is over now....until next year!!!!

Time to catch some Zzzzzz's

Since the weather has been SUPER hot lately, Gobo and Mokey have been super sleepy. They sprawl out wherever they can to catch some Zzzz's. Here are some pictures of them enjoying their "nap time."


I've been totally slacking with this blog, but I doubt people really read it, so it's all good. My kitties are definitely cute, but there are only so many pictures I can take of them all of the time...unless I find interesting props...then my cats will HATE me! haha! I got some cute cuddling/cleaning pictures of Gobo and Mokey, so I figured I'd post them here. They were beating each other up last night, but they cuddled and made up later. It's so cute...they're like an old, married couple. So, here are some pics...
