Hi Mike,

Thanks for the e-mail; your blog made me smile. It's great to know that cats out there have such great owners!

One of Heather's big causes is animal rights, she calls herself the animal defender. She is on the board of the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, where I got Yerbie. Fame @ last, little buddy.

Ahh a fellow cat lover :) yay!

I was thinking the other day, everywhere I take Ava, family's places and friend, everyone has at least one cat, Ava must just take it as part of the furniture that there are cats everywhere:) My friend Marilyn has 11 cats, they all hae amazing names such as Gustav and Ratty. LOL!

So Ava thinks the world smells of cat piss ? Everyone's house that has a cat smells of cat piss.....the owners just don't notice......I do.

Mine doesn't, I have a nose like a bloodhound...I can smell someone lighting a ciggy from 200 metres away!

Yeah you can detect cigarette smoke from a mile away but you can't smell cat piss all over your house.
I know what I prefer to smell * draws on a ciggy *. :)

Until I married Mr. Thing, who is allergic to cats, I always had 3 cats in the house. It smelled like a house that had animals in it, but it never smelled of cat piss. My cats were very fastidious about going outside or using the litter box.

The dog, on the other hand....but I shouldn't speak ill of the dead. Poor thing lost control of his bladder a few months before he died. After we house-trained the new puppy, we got new rugs.

Poor Tosun is the only one in our family who HAS to go outside to the loo! I feel sorry for him in really bad weather, when he stands at the back door looking out, obviously wanting to go but not liking the wet weather!! The cats have their tray if they need to go (they usually go outside somewhere); the parrot & cockatiel obviously are in their cages and as for the husband and I? We are fully housetrained too. ;p

When we first had Tosun at aged 5 wks 5 days we had a special pad thing that you put the pup on when it looks as if it wants to use the loo, and you move it nearer and nearer the back door so eventually the pup goes outside. It is a square, about, from memory, 2ft x 2ft and looks like a giant disposable nappy, but flat.

In the first few days whilst he was learning, Tosun would almost fly through the air in our haste to get him onto the mat before there was a puddle (or worse)!!

A brilliant 'invention' if anyone is thinking of having a new puppy.

These are the sort of thing, not necessarily the brand we used though.

Whenever I was training a pup if it pissed on the floor I rubbed it's nose in it, gave it a slight smack then chucked it out in the cold. They learned very quickly.
