Who is Peeing on the Carpet?


Today is my first day alone in our new house! I’d say we are roughly 3/4 unpacked with several systems to set up yet. One of those is the cats.
Until our beautiful dog Amos passed in May, I almost didn’t realize we had 2 cats. They seemed to accessorize him. Now they get a lot more attention, as you can imagine. I know cats don’t adjust to moves very well, so we locked them in the spare bathroom with all their gear & needs during the move and the following couple days. Now that they are free, they are needy (& kneading my baby belly every chance I sit / lay still).
We have carpet. From an esthetics and germ perspective I despise carpet like I despise window treatments. It’s expensive ish berber & isn’t in the reno budget to rip out, this year. The stairwells have in the last three days become a stink bomb of either cat spray or pee!!! Uggg! Nothing worse than cat pee smell! Nothing. I have yet to catch anyone in the act (goddess help them if I do) as they do it after we leave for work. We’ve emptied a box of baking soda cat litter deo all over already. Any suggestions folks? Other than driving the kitties to “the farm”?
Happy times*! I’m hoping to unpack / find my craft supplies and set up a table today! Stay tuned.
Make Something Every Day

I had a nice poop

cool bathroom photo, heh?

I’m embracing poop talk, living with a man.

A wonderful man, who feels free to discuss his movements and encourages me to discuss mine.. ugg.

So we moved into the cabin (still on Qaudra, about 5 minutes up the beach). Lots of love required but it’s becoming a snuggly nice place to live. First was the ripping out of carpet in the bedroom AND bathroom. That’s right people.. carpet in a 70s wood cabin bathroom. So the second Corey left for camp.. you imagine correctly that this is what I ripped out…

Bye Bye mouse Poo and revolting carpet. Man, carpet nails and such are a  b*tch to get out. So glad my  fake floozy nails are gone.

Then came drying the floor boarding, sanding it, mopping it and painting it (with one of the MANY cans of green ash ~puke~ paint that i found in the woodshed). Reno cost? zero.

and while we develop rapport with our lovely, elderly, slow to make changes land lords.. we will settle for this..
