This morning, I cleaned the cat boxes, then took a shower. After getting dressed, I went back to the bathroom to comb my hair. What did I find? Fresh poop on the rug. Baaaaaad cat.

Kitty wasn't happy with you ;)

Since they do that on purpose, you better find what upset him/her before he/she leaves more presents...

Usually it means I waited too long to clean the boxes.

(That reminds me, I need to get the rugs out of the dryer before my shower.)

Thankfully I don't have that specific problem, My cat just sometimes throws up some of Her dry food, I think She eats too much, probably She gets cold at times, still its a warm mess, requiring paper towels, and possibly some Clorox oxy rug cleaner and a vacuum cleaner if the cookies are on a semi white carpet.

It sounds as if Grace is treating her dried food like some sort of fur ball - try giving her something a little more moist and see it stops her.

I'll look into that, I'm feeding Her canned cat food for dinner and Science Diet adult dry cat food(green label) the rest of the time. I only feed Her that dry food as that's what the shelter fed Her.

I have found a few online as examples of what is out there on Amazon, currently I can't buy anything for Grace or Me, occupational hazard really. It's a 12.5 mile drive to Barstow CA in a car with a 1/4 tank of gas left(that's about 3 gallons), that trip would use 1 gallon of gasoline for the trip.

1. Meow Mix Dry Cat Food,
2. Purina One Cat Indoor Advantage Cat Food,
3. Natural Balance Dry Cat Food,
4. Wellness CORE Grain Free Dry Cat Food for Adult Cats($38 a bag almost, 11.5lb bag),
5. Halo Spot's Stew Natural Dry Cat Food,
6. Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Dry Cat Food for Adult Cat($35 a bag almost, 18lb bag),
7. Merrick Before Grain #1 Chicken Dry Cat Food($32 a bag almost, 11.1lb bag),
8. Royal Canin Dry Cat Food($43 a bag almost, 15lb Bag)

Assuming you've got the dry food why not trying adding a few drops of water to it - it may work, and would certainly save you some money.

I'll try that, can't hurt much.

Here's Grace inspecting the new hardware that still lacks any video cards, I'll get those, wanted to secure these before they were gone for good.

I took this without any flash and then had to work on the pic in PSP 4.12 adding brightness and contrast to get the pic to be useable since the camera needed newly charged batteries to be installed, I didn't want to miss the shot.

Oh, okay. Better you than him. You drink enough of that and you'll think my language skills are great.
