Stunned By The Bowl

If you have cats or have had cats you'll appreciate this post.

Here's a photo of her on my table to show you her current size. Imagine this little thing having the below happen to her. About five minutes before these photos were taken, on my Sunday morning no less, I had to rescue Sadie from her own foibles. As I was changing the litters this morning and sweeping the mess they left me on the floor and dumping the cruddy duddy into the toilet, with my back turned I heard this strange crashing plop sound. And there she was in the toilet, stunned as stunned could be. You'd have thought she would be wrangling around trying to get out. But no, she was so freaked out I guess that she couldn't move. Half her body, the lower half was submerged in the toilet water filled with litter from the floor. Wet as wet can be. I don't have photos of that moment. It would not have been right to stop and let her stay there while I ran for the camera.





I immediately scooped her up, LMAO and plunked her into the sink and rinsed her off. While not too happy about that she did let me do it.

THIS is the kind of light cheery thing I would like to see every birthday! Maybe a tribute to how great Canada is would be in order for next year?!! ;)

Heidi, Happy Birthday. I am sure you can write your PR piece for Canada and post it in your own site :-)

Jessica, She's really ok. It stunned her for about 5 hours and now I think she completely forgot! TeeHee!

LOL ... ohhh, poor little thingy. And we all know how much cats love water! :)

But, more importantly ... as a cat owner ... there's such a thing as flushable litter?

OMG It's sad but sort of funny! I would have loved to see a photo...I'm mean...lol

Lauren said...

Drowsey, no the litter isn't flushable...but the crap from the floor from the litter gets flushed. Too bad for my landlord. HAHA!

Lee- it was very funny so I guess I am mean too! You should have seen her with her paws on the seat and her legs and half her body in the water. Just stunned, not moving. It was too funny for words.

No, the boss won't let me be an ass! I can only get away with this stuff on other peoples' blogs :) Hence the daily visit! Speaking of visits, let me know if you come to Canada....I can show you everything that we have that you guys don't. Basically I think the day would consist, of eating poutine and popping cheap prescription pills whilst attending a gay wedding. Sounds fun eh?!

Lauren said...

Heidi, you're too funny! BTW, we have some cheaper pills although not usually as cheap as yours and we do have gay weddings here. Not in all states, but NY just allowed this, Cali has it and Mass too. Not sure what that food is that you mention so maybe I will have to take a trip just to find out. BTW I am not a Canada hater my dear!
