As if you are SO concerned about Seri's litterbox habits, LOL! She peed outside the box yesterday (she went to work with me and was in a cage with her litterbox and food and water.) I bought the new litter and she still peed. I was bummed. Then I read that you aren't supposed to keep their food and water near the litterbox. Okay, that's an easy fix. So last night she was in her crate with just a little litterbox and when I got done with the kids, I went in to play with her and let her stretch a bit. She played a bit and then seemed to be sniffing around so I put her back in her crate. She went both #1 and #2 in the litterbox! I was ecstatic! LOL. Who knew it would be so exciting for me, geez, is this what I have become? Anyway, I cleaned it up, but left some little clumps of urine so her scent would still be in there. I let her play as a reward, and then she went back in the crate for the night. This morning she had peed in the litterbox again, WOO HOO! I hope hope hope that we are turning a corner. I am bleaching the big litterbox today so that it will be nice and clean for her. I bought a new one that will arrive tomorrow, but that will take some transitioning anyway so I'll save that for when she is solid. Since I don't trust her, she has to hang out in the crate until I am around her, which I feel bad about but I just don't want any accidents. I am so happy though; at least she has gone a few times!
Well, when we took Stanley in to be fixed and everything else, we found out that he is actually a she! So instead of Stanley, we have Serafina Fuzzums of Sugarmoo aka Seri. I love her to pieces. She is NOT, however, litterbox trained as I was told. Either that, or she hates the special litter we have to use due to her declaw. I get to switch to normal litter either tomorrow or Tuesday, so we'll find out for sure then. Any ideas about how to get her to use her box? I've never had an issue with a cat before, but I always got kittens at a younger age and they had no issue with it. She is just over 12 weeks (which I realize isn't old, at all!)
Anyway, I thought I'd share some pics of my Seri-bear:
From last night, her first night home
Her coat is a trip, she has white undertones
Such a sweetie
And just for fun, this is my fluffball dog, Sophie (Sophie Wigglebutt Dynamite; totally related to Napoleon cuz she can be quite the dork!)
