Is my kitty spoiled?






OK. So let me start out by saying that this is my husband's cat that he inherited from an old girlfriend. I am a step-catmommy. It took about five years for me to stop hating this cat. He is very old and spends most of his time sleeping, howling, throwing up, or pooping and peeing. He is also very expensive and has destroyed furniture and flooring. I hate to say it, but I have even called the vet to inquire about having him put to sleep. This was after he peed on the floor. NOTHING is worse than cat pee. (Won't I make a wonderful, patient mother?)



So I don't know if I just have this need to nurture something right now or what, but this cat has really grown on me. I hate to admit it, but I have even been known to hold this cat like a baby from time to time and pretend to give him a bottle. This has severely damaged my relationship with the cat. Also I think my husband thinks it is unhealthy and crazy. Whatever.



Well, a couple of months ago the cat was really sick and my husband put him in the bathroom sink for a cool drink. Now he is constantly crying to be lifted into the sink (he being the cat, not my husband). I tried to break the cat of this habit and figured if we didn't indulge him for a few weeks he would forget about it, (assuming kitty brains are very small and forgetful). But my husband is too much of a softy and he couldn't take the crying. So we went on vacation for a week. I thought surely the cat will forget about it while we are gone and problem solved. As soon as we walk in the door the first thing that cat does is run to the bathroom and cry!!! So I guess this is going to be his new habit...

I think it's amazing how much we spoil the fur babies when we have no real ones of our own. I sit there and rock my little dog and my husband has started lifting her into the air. It's pretty funny. The water in the bathroom is classic.

Our kitty drinks out of the toilet AND the shower. Yet she has a FULL bowl of water next to her food--that she won't drink out of.

We do tend to spoil them don't we :)

My cat does the same thing! She loves anything with running water, sinks and bathtubs included. Thankfully my cat can still jump up to our sink, so she just requires someone to turn it on for her. :)
