Isis here taking over the blog today, 'cause I had a toe trauma last night... :( It was so dreadful that I can hardly bear thinking about it, but Ramses says I need to talk about stuff to feel better about it... So I'll do my best to explain what happened without cryin'!
You see I was all excited to have Mummy and Dad home last night and I wasn't really paying attention to what I was doin' in the litter box... I know it's a silly mistake to make! So there I was trying to cover up the evidence like a good girl when "squidge" I stepped in it! :( It upset me so much I ran out of the litter box like someone had set fire to my tail, but try as I might I couldn't run away from my icky paw all covered in evidence - 'n boy did it smell bad! :( So I started to cry and Mummy came over and looked at me and decided I needed a "toe wash"! Now having a foot covered in really smelly evidence is one bad thing, but having a toe wash is something else! :( My Dad held me all nice and tight and Mummy did the toe washing with some sniffy stuff and then with some warm water to stop my toes from foamin'! Ramses got all upset and meowed loudly at Mummy that she was makin' my toes all nasty and rabid and worse yet, wet! But in the end she stopped washing them and tried to dry them off for me, but I was worried about Ramses by this time and insisted on getting down to talk to him properly and reassure him I still had all my toes and show him that they hadn't dissolved in the water or even shrunk... :) Though they were all wet and drippy and I got told to stay off the sofa until they dried off as no one (other than me) wanted little wet kitty paw marks on it! Oh well, they're all dry now and Ramses has calmed down. But remember to always watch where you put for paws or you too could have to suffer the indignity of having "icky paw", and icky paw just leads to toe bath and I just know that most kitties out there would find that horribly traumatic!
