I've got two objectives with Caoimhe.
1. Stop her from ruining the carpet with scratching.
Solution: Catnip drops. Little pastilles of compressed catnip. She loves them. They fall apart quite easily, so I've smeared it all over her scratching post. Now she loves the scratching post. :)
Right now, she's cracked out and doing that 'lay in weird angles and rub myself all over the catnip covered object' squirm. It cracks me up.
2. Declare independence from the litterbox.
Phase one is complete. She's successfully moved into the bathroom and has gotten over her fear of the possibility of water. (ybunny
, don't you dare splash her when you're here or she'll get the fear back...)
Phase two is underway. I'm raising the litter box by approximately two inches. I'll continue with that over the next week until she's at toilet height.
Then, I'll deal with phase three and four. :-|
Well, I've still got a bit of a weird feeling head, so I'm going to go do the dishes. (I always feel better doing the dishes.)
