Living on the Edge
Well, I did it! I stopped at the store on my way home from ballet this evening, and picked up all kinds of exciting goodies: a towel ring, a shower curtain, a soap holder thing, and a small rug (idea stolen from cynnerth).

Put the rug by my front door, and the cats, immediately recognizing the presence of an item not covered in cat hair, worked diligently to correct it. Then installed the soap holder and shower curtain (easy).

Doing the towel ring was a bit more complicated, because of course I first had to remove the towel nub. It turns out that the remaining nub was attached more firmly than its mate (which broke off earlier). Surprise surprise...but a few very firm hits of the hammer finally took care of it. Now my bathroom floor is decorated with shattered bits of towel nub and plaster dust, but the newly installed ring looks very nice. What, clean up? Yes I suppose I could do that, but you know the cleanup is never as fun as the actual work.

I didn't realize that I was giving myself one more thing to vacuum cat hair off of! Isn't it funny how cats don't like to sit on bare carpeting? They'd rather sit on something on top of the carpeting. My cats also don't like to do that lovely hairball thing on bare floors. They'll run to the closest rug or carpet for that. Ugh.

Cats are very weird. I dont' know why they need to sit on things like that - I'll leave one tshirt on an otherwise clean, comfortably carpeted floor, come back upstairs to find a cat curled up on the shirt. I don't know, maybe they feel superior if you're constantly cleaning up after them.

I have hardwood on my whole lower level. This one time I was sitting on the couch, with a cat laying next to me. He started coughing and sounding sick. Being the compasionate cat-mother that I am, concerned for his health, I immediately shoved him off the couch. Close call, too, because seconds after he hit the floor he made quite a mess on it....but it was pretty easy to clean off the wood!

Once I tried running with my heaving kitty over to the litterbox so she could be sick there. I plopped her in and she quickly jumped out looking upset and sick. What?! She can't mess it up??
