The covered box didn’t work. Someone simply peed next to it. Thank GOD for the suggestion of the pads, because at least it was easy to clean up and I didn’t cry.
But I realized this means nothing will work. If I get a box with tall sides whoever is doing this (I’ve never caught them in the act) will just pee next to that too. I’m not sure what to do now. I’m going to get a big box from the container store anyway, and I’m also going to try putting the box in a new place (the hall) to see it that makes a difference.
I did talk to the vet and I’m going to have to try to catch both their urine for testing.
Well, I didn’t like that big covered box, so at least I can stop using that. Christ. Just slap the “crazy cat lady” label on me and be done with it.
Other things not going well: still not liking the new book proposal. Have to go back to the radiologist for an ultrasound because they found a mass. It’s probably nothing, they say, but still.
