The price of a short attention span
I was putzing around my house this evening, getting some stuff done before having to go to skating practice at 11pm (from which I have just returned). I emptied the dishwasher, took out the garbage including the cat litter, stuff like that. Unfortunately, I got distracted while changing the cat litter. I did the rest of the garbage, took the bags out to the curb, then started messing around on my computer. My mind easily wanders.

Then I heard the unmistakable sounds of a kitty-paw scraping something, the usual pawing a cat will do before and/or after using the litter box. Oh no! I realized I'd forgotten to finish with the kitty litter -- I hadn't actually put in a new bag with new litter in it, just removed the old one.

"No, stop it, wait, don't!" I yelled loudly as I rushed into the other room. I was hoping that if the cat hadn't started yet, my shouting would cause it to be startled into shy-bladder-syndrome and not make a mess. Too late. My littlest cat arched her back and stared at me with big surprised eyes, having just completed her business. I now had an empty litter box to clean out before I could refill it with a bag and some litter. *sigh*

"Oh crap," I muttered. "Well...actually....pee."

Re: Practice Time

Yep...it's rough too, because after exercising so late, I can't sleep right away. Too wired. I was up at least past 3am, 4am, last night, not just wide awake but also freezing cold. Yuck.

At least it's only once a week!

My cats get all excited when I'm changing the litter box. I have to keep shooing them away until I get the new litter poured. Then they climb in there to do both things, just to irritate me. "Ooo clean litter! Gotta stink it up!"

Yeah, they do love it when the litter's cleaned. Mine always use it right away too (ugh). ...and sometimes, too soon!

Darn cats! They're just lucky they're cute.
