Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 5 & 6

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 5 & 6
Born To Be Free   By the beginning of the fifth week, I was comfortable enough in the Littles comfort with their training to, again, allow them free run of the house. I removed the barrier to the upstairs, but still kept the bedroom doors closed. Same Tune, Different Verse Mock toilet with 4oz sour cream container. We started this week as we had the previous weeks with a thorough bathroom cleaning [...]

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 3 & 4

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 3 & 4
With the beginning of week three, it was time again to graduate to a larger water container. This time I used an empty 3 oz. Pounce cat treat container. It was small in diameter, and still fit under their toilet seat, but it was tall enough to keep them from filling it with litter when they dug around. (Lily is an especially aggressive digger, usually flinging litter all over the floor, as well [...]

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Week 2

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Week 2
Week two the Littles were introduced to water. After dumping their old litter, scrubbing their sitz bath, mock toilet, and the bathroom floor, I refilled their sitz bath with fresh litter and the little test-tube full of water and went through the process of locking us away in the bathroom. Before I could place each Little, one by one, in the mock toilet to introduce them to the water, they were already [...]

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Week 1
In my post, “Litter Kwitter Quitters”, I described our disappointing and stressful experience at toilet training our Littles with the Litter Kwitter system. So, while it was true that we were down, we certainly weren’t out. After removing the Litter Kwitter and promptly returning their litter box, I got back online and began to research other methods for toilet training. I googled the phrase [...]

Simple Meat Sauce

Simple Meat Sauce
The meat sauce I was taught to make years ago is a process and, although very delicious, it’s very time consuming and, frankly, just not worth all the time and effort necessary. Many of us just don’t have that kind of free time to put into a dinner anymore. That’s why I was thrilled when I found another one every bit as good, and much easier to make. I stumbled across Laura Vitale’s [...]

Laser Hair Removal. Well, Sort Of.

Laser Hair Removal. Well, Sort Of.
As aging women, we know to expect some changes to our face and bodies, and most are okay in an “as if I can stop it” sort of way. Others may come as a bit of a surprise. Not “SURPRISE! We’re giving you an all expense paid vacay” kind of surprise, but more of the “WHAT, IN THE NAME OF BABY HEYZUES, IS THAT!!” kind of surprise. For me, that was finding hair sprouting in places hair [...]

Litter Kwitter Quitters

Litter Kwitter Quitters
After adopting our two youngest Littles, littermates we named Atticus and Lily, in November, I quickly decided cleaning litter boxes for three cats was just not going to work for me. At all. Beyond being completely unhygienic, it’s gross, it’s smelly, it’s expensive, and I’m not living in a house that smells like cat poo or, worse yet, cat urine. Just. Can’t. Happen. So, [...]
