Hi everyone! Last night I put mommy through her paces again. It has been three months since I peed on her bed but I thought she needed a refresher course on how to deal with these things. I'll let mommy tell you the story from her point of view. I think it will sound better coming from the "victim" in this case. mol
Tosca's mommy here. As most of you know, Tosca has been peeing on my bed since I got her as a baby. It isn't medical, it's behavioral. I've been so proud of Tosca for not peeing in my bed for three solid months. That's a great effort for her, almost a record. Last week she started scratching on the bed so I felt she was getting close to feeling the need to pee on the bed again. Last night she finally "did it."
I woke up at 12:45 and rolled over into a wet spot. She has NEVER peed in the middle of the night before. I jump out of bed and strip off the top covers. On my way back to the side I was sleeping on I keep stepping in wetness. I felt so bad for her. I assumed she had started peeing and got interrupted so she jumped down and couldn’t hold it and piddled all across the floor. I looked at the bed and thankfully I woke up before I had to strip off the bottom linens.
I grab one of the already wet blankets and clean up the floor in the bedroom. I gather the blankets to put in the washer. As I’m doing that I find her mouse in the wet bed linens. I thought this is great. She’s peed on her mouse too. Now I’m going to have to throw it out. I sniffed it to make sure. It didn’t smell but urine doesn’t always smell. I throw everything in the washer, including the mouse. These mice are her favorites and very hard to find so I don’t want to lose one if I don’t have to.
On my way back to the bedroom I step in another spot. I grab a towel that was right outside the laundry room and wipe that up and look for more spots. There are a couple more that continue toward the kitchen. I turn on the lights to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I keep wiping and wiping….all the way to the water bowl.
That little stinker was playing with her mouse in the water bowel and brought it to bed with her. All the water that had absorbed into it dripped all the way from the kitchen then soaked through the bed linens. She didn’t pee in the bed at all.
I stayed up long enough to make sure they blankets in the washer weren’t lopsided while spinning. I grabbed my thin little fuzzy blanket and went back to bed by 1:00. I froze the rest of the night but I was also quite proud of my baby for not peeing in the bed.
We're proud of you too, Tosca! Unfortunately I was not so lucky, I left a little spot on the floor last night *blush* But your poor mommy! Having to get up in the middle of the night and wash everything! Reminds Mistress of when her mom woke her up to wash her sheets in the middle of the night cuz Mistress used to wet the bed!
high paws Tosca!! You go girl!
That was a super prank, Lt. Tosca! Well done.
LOL you had her fooled, didn't you! Good girl.
Wet mice: when you care enough to send the very best. Wet Mousograms: hey, this could catch on. Now if they'd only show the mouse in the gift center dripping wet, we could send them to each other . . . just not in the middle of the night in bed. ;-)
Way too funny. I think I need to try this!
