Coco Kitty Relaxing Inside
Coco kitty is an indoor/outdoor cat. She comes and goes at will, but we do bring her inside every evening (except for the couple or so times a year when she gets all full of herself and won’t come in at night.) But all of that has changed with these last two weeks of weather! No, we don’t have snow or blizzards like some of you, but we’ve been so cold. Our average high is in the 50’s and we are barely making it into the 20’s! Coco has apparently decided that this is not for her. She has not gone outside for days! This is the first time in years that she has stayed inside 24/7!
She moves from heating vent to heating vent. From sun puddle to sun puddle. While I enjoy having her in all day long, there is one small problem. She doesn’t use a litter box. She never has. When she first showed up at our door as a medium sized kitten, she was already set in her ways. She drank water from the bathroom sink faucet and she went to the bathroom in either the tub or the sink! We think that she must have been kept in a bathroom.
She now mainly goes in the sink in our downstairs bathroom. It’s not as bad as it sounds, since I just scoop it up with toilet paper and flush it away, with the toilet right there. Then we run hot water and baking soda down the drain of the sink. We remind ourselves that it could be worse, she could be going on carpets or the floors, so really a sink is so easy to manage.
Anyone else have a cat that uses the sink or are we the only lucky ones 🙂
