The Lament of the Stay-at-Home Mom: Cat Poop Edition

What do stay-at-home moms do all day?
Here is one answer for you people:
My cat
(the one with a habit of defecating outside the box)
had excrement coating her hind legs.
So I chased her from room to room
wielding a wet paper towel,
for the delicate hazmat operation.

It wasn't easy.
The poop is adhering to her fur.
Because of an earlier encounter with a sticker.
There is no one to whom I could delegate this job.
And so it goes.


  1. I just really laughed out loud. I prefer not to abbreviate when it really happens.

    1. Thanks, Heather. I am curious to know what about this post cost me a follower. Was it the reference to fecal matter, the fantastic boringness of it, what?

  2. In sympathy as a fellow pet-owner, I'll follow in that person's place. Whoever it was must not own an animal (or other being that can't wipe its own butt).

    1. petunia, you are a princess among women.

  3. I can so relate to this, Christina! I have four cats ranging in age from six months to 14 years and have dealt with a lot of feline bodily fluids of all varieties and have certainly had some aerobic chases through the house. It really helps to laugh about it, doesn't it? Your post is wonderful and made me laugh out loud! I don't know why a Follower would leave you over this..
