In recent adventures, we've been
preparing to enter our cats in a national LOLcats contest having the cats trained to an Invisible Fence. Ok, so it's nutty. But as I head back to full time work, it seemed better than leaving them in all day to redecorate the house, or out all day to run far away and get smooshed (not such a concern with Pepper, but a major concern with Salvador).
Guilt over potentially frivolous expenditure aside, this experience has been worth a great deal in terms of comic relief. The trainers come every day, and guarantee their work. Apparently, they'll let us know when both cats are fully trained.
The first couple of days were pretty ridiculous:
Salvador was first --
You want me to do what?
Listen folks, I didn't convert from the wild life for THIS.
Hey bub, I'm not walking on that leash.
Told ya I wasn't gonna walk on that leash.
After a week of this, the trainer says Salvador is done! But they're not going to release both cats from training until Pepper is done too. That way, they can start being out together. We have a cute little cat door that they will learn to use, so they can have access to food and air conditioning all day, and hang outside as much as they want.
The best part: we will no longer have a litter box in the house.
In other news, yummy soap!
But my personal favorite has to be the honeybee mold; I make soap with honey in it for this one. Here, I added some ground spices which went to the bottom of the mold and made a neat speckly pattern, not to mention smelling GREAT!
