I’ll keep the cat

COVID-19 Shelter In Place Day Seven

As you know, I have numerous dogs and cats.

I love them all but I have to say that my cat, Catalina, has bubbled to the top of my favorite list.

And that’s something because she likes to grab my leg, arm, whatever she can reach every time I walk by her and sometimes – more often than not – I can feel those claws.

However, after today she’s my favorite.

Why? Two reasons.

First, she’s the only one who says, “God bless you”, every time I sneeze.

I’m not kidding.

Okay, I am a little. I don’t know what she’s actually saying but she does meow when I sneeze. It’s funny. She can be sound asleep and if I sneeze, she meows.

But, the real reason she’s my favorite is that she cleans – no, not just herself and the other cats (lol).

She cleans the litter box.

This morning when I went into the bedroom where I put Jasmine, my semi-paralyzed cat, for breakfast and dinner.there was a huge, disgusting pile of regurgitated wet food in her litter box. (She’s fine. She just had a hairball to toss up.)

I stared at this mess and decided that I’d deal with it later when I cleaned the litter box. I left the room, put the gate up to keep the dogs out (I use a baby gate with a corner cut out so the cats can go into the room but the dogs can’t) and went to work.

At dinner time, I carried Jasmine back into the bedroom to eat and there was no mess. It’d been covered with litter.

I didn’t do it.

Jasmine didn’t do it (being semi-paralyzed and all, she doesn’t get around too well).

The dogs didn’t do it. They can’t get past the gate.

One of my other cats had.

How do I know which one? Well, I don’t know for sure but I have seen Catalina jump into the litter box and cover the other cats’ poop when they don’t do a good enough job.

I kid you not.

She’s my little tidy cat.

Okay, she’s not so little. She’s quite a fatty. She has what the vet calls “small head” syndrome. (LOL – me too)

Now, I just have to teach her to vacuum and dust.
