S For Spa, Serene, Spot

Posted by terrepruitt on August 13, 2013

I have mentioned a few times that my cat is sick. I mentioned it in my last essential oil post. As often is the case when someone is sick be it an adult, a child, a baby, or an animal, the conversation comes around to let’s say “litter box trips”. Well, part of my cat’s sickness has to do with “litter box trips” as I shared in my Good Clean Scents post. Her illness is a disease and she will have it for the rest of her life. We are treating her and trying to get her symptoms under control. She is such a good kitty, it very unfortunate that she is having anything but the best of times. Also as is often the case when there is illness and sickness involved there is stress and sadness. So some of the oils I am using about the house help with the stress. Some are even said to help with sadness and/or depression. One thing I often find helps in stressful and/or sad situations is humor. While it might not always seem appropriate it does often help to ease the situation.

This past weekend my husband had been helping out a lot especially with litter box duty. At one point he said, “Have you even noticed the ‘S’?” And I said, “What ‘S’?” He proceeded to tell me that after he scooped out and cleaned the litter box he would make and “S” in the sand (he calls litter sand). He said that he wanted to give the cat that “Bed and Breakfast/Spa like experience”. He asked me if I noticed it. I said I had not, and in fact I thought he was joking. When I get up and check the box, it looks unused I shake it to see if anything she might have covered up surface. So I had not been noticing the personal touch that my husband had been creating for our cat, Spot. I noticed the “S” all weekend long.Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Zumba, PiYo, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex City of San Jose, San Jose Group Ex classes, YMCA

He too believes she is a good kitty and deserves the best so he wanted to help make her litter box trips more spa like. Serene and personal. I am still laughing. I am also a little frightened thinking that maybe he is serious. But that really is just like him to try to add some humor to a tough situation. He even asked me to make the “S”. I did it once because he was paying attention, but really that is not my thing.

Ha, I just noticed while trying to get a picture of the “S” that he does it in BOTH litter boxes. Normally the cat only has one litter box, but with the current situation we want to have a lot of available “real estate” so she actually has three. And he makes the “S” in both of the ones in the downstairs bathroom. Funny man. Although I am certain his little girl appreciates it!

I was unable to get a shot of the “S” where you can see it, so this photo of our cat’s litter box is courtesy of John. Thanks, Hon!

Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
