My cats comfortable life is hanging on a thin thread, very thin! My cottage reeked of cat pee the other day when I came home and that smell sort of totally destroys the entire sense of smells. But after walking around a while I located the source of this awful odor to two places. In the kitchen and up in my bedroom.
The kitchen was easy so after mopping the floor there I went upstairs. It turns out that someone of them had peed in one of the dog beds. It was the kind that is said to be indestructible🙂 Well it isn’t and the dogs had dug a big hole in it so the pee had run through it and down on the floor. One or perhaps both of the cats had also peed beneath my bed! It took a while but all smell is gone now and the cats were banished for over 24 hours from the cottage. My guess is that it is Teodor because Bertil always goes to the shower if his brother has used the cat litter. Teodor seems to think I should be punished if I don’t do anything to the cat litter if his brother has been there, even if I am at work🙂 Thankfully this is nothing that happens especially often. During summer they never go indoors at all.
We went down to the creek this morning, they had been working there yesterday when we were on the other side of the creek.
The only reason they still are allowed to come in is that I have an intruder in my home. A nasty little food thief called a mouse! In my pantry! The pantry is a place I often visit🙂 So I saw it the morning after it had been there. So everything edible that I didn’t have a container for now stands on the kitchen counter. After that I let the cats in again and opened the pantry door over night. I haven’t seen any new tracks after that🙂 But I won’t place anything that isn’t in a jar or tin until I know for certain that the mouse is gone.
We were on the other side yesterday to see how much th water had sunk and if it was possible to walk there at all.
Even though I am a bit tired of the rain and constant wind I still am very happy that we don’t have any winter to talk about on this side of the ocean. I’ve heard about the snow storm on the American continent and I’m glad we don’t have it over here. But still, it would be nice if it rained a bit less🙂
It was a bit muddy and the banks were a bit unstable but looked much the same as always otherwise.
Have a great day!
I have been waiting for these persimmon seeds (Diospyrus virginiana) to germinate for almost one year. Four months in the fridge, four outside and then four in the fridge again. Now, a bit earlier than I had hoped they started to shoot a root. Persimmon seeds actually works better with the paper cloth method than in soild. They almost always root when sown in soil.
Now I’ve sown one seed in each pot and can only hope I haven’t placed the pots too warm or too col🙂
