In celebration of "A Moment of Frustration Day" (according to the holiday a day calendar)
I was actually thinking of not sharing this with you because who really wants to read about the frustrating parts of fostering, but when I saw on our Holiday a Day calendar that today was "A Moment Of Frustration Day" it seemed like the right thing to do.
My husband is only smiling in that photo because I'm trying to take his photo. He was a bit frustrated with Benji wanting to cuddle with him because he was completely and utterly lacking that new kitten smell. What did he smell like? Well I am glad you asked.. (you didn't really, though, did you?)
This makes three out of the last three litters that have decided to use the couch we replaced the futon with as a litter box. I am not amused, not even a little, and the frustration might have lasted more than a moment when I saw this.
I know it is not his fault. He is small and he is alone and he is sick.. and all he wants is love..
I had already put in word to the shelter that he was having issues and meds were actually in the house to give him when I found the couch deposits, so after changing the sheets and attempting to clean off his back feet without giving him a full bath, he received his medication and some fluids and we proceeded to snuggle him for nearly two hours (according to Muffin it was nearly three hours). He is such a sweet little thing, so very well mannered. And I do not hold the couch thing against him, I'm sure once he is feeling better things will be back to normal.
