Ok, a.) I think youíre the only current female user Iím aware of, which is weird; and b.) ďmy (wo)man caveĒ made me gigggle. *
she wasn't too happy about having to share me with my wife too. i ended up sending my cat to my mom's because i always gave in to what my wife wanted. she was heartbroken and became depressed. later we divorced and i moved in with my mom. she would still piss in my room on those cds. there was another cat in the house so i thought either she was still being territorial or maybe it was because her scent was still on those cds. turned out she was just old, her legs didn't work as well, and she couldn't make it across the house to the litter.
after she died, i inherited the other cat. he developed diabetes and after i couldn't afford his meds anymore and he was getting real bad, he started pissing on the table where i kept all my music gear. i would put the litter right there on the table so he would use that, but he still pissed outside of it. he ruined my kaoss pad.
Shit. Fuck. Holy hells. This is so sad. I am sorry about, like, TEN things in this chunk of text. And Iím now totally freaked out about my catís health.
I *just* lost a dog. But yeah, I think itís clear that the urinating is a health-related issue. Heís old... though I once had a cat who lived to be damn-near 30. No shit. Was, like, 18 when I was born and belonged to my grandmother. Didnít pass until I was in middle school... but I know that cat was a huge exception.
Thanks for the feedback though. I really appreciate it, even if itís just shared experiences. Iím living quite a solo (human-wise) life these days, more so than ever before really, and my animals are everything to me.
