Hello All. Apologies for the length. I don't post often, and I promise I DID try a search of the forums --funny that a search of "defecating" gets four hits when "pooping" gets 5, 288 laugh out loud

Background: I was born under a shed, spent the first six months or so as an outdoor kitty in KY living in the garage with free rein of the grounds, then the second six months confined to my own room in VA with all the trappings (cat castle, food bowls, treats, toys and litter box). The dog dynamic of two pitties was not conducive to adding a kitten.

When the oldest of the two puppers died on June 29, the Bipedess decided it was time to let me out of the cat room. My dog-bro and I get along famously, btw. Biped put a cat door in so I can get back into my cat room without the dog (and so dog can't eat what I leave in the litter box that I DO use and is cleaned twice a day) whenever I want.

Problem: Because of the weather, first Hurricane Sandy and then the cold, Biped brought all the potted plants from the deck inside.

I scooped mounds of dirt from my favorite, mixed it up with a pile of leaves that had fallen from the plant in a nice little pile on the living room floor and then I defecated in it.

Bipedess was unaware until she came home from work and caught me doing the litter paw thing in the pile this evening and found the surprise I had left earlier in the day.

Bipedess is a dog person and hasn't had a cat since 1978 and he was a barn cat. So she is painfully ill-equipped to deal and really doesn't know what to do to stop me from creating my own toilet wherever I want. Besides getting rid of the plants, which would make Biped very very unhappy.

Okay I was WRONG WRONG WRONG. Bubs the 14 year old was fine with Reep when we brought him in for a meet and greet. Raskol, the 7-year old Lab/Pit mix however had a fit. Squealing, whining, shaking, PREY! IN MY HOUSE!!!! Not good.

I wish I could bring him in. But I have a 14-year old dog that we've had since he was 10 who has never been cat-socialized and one particular close call with a cat he has had makes me nervous. I know its possible to dog/cat socialize, but Bubs doesn't learn easily in these twilight years of his life. I don't know what he was taught for the first decade, but it obviously didn't include loving kitties. For Reepicheep's and Bubbles' sake, I think it is better that I try to find Reep a safe and worry-free home.

Okay, no responses at all???? No KY catsters (or dogsters) with advice??? Please, I'm going to hit feral cat status pretty soon. And right about that time it will be winter. I am not one of those cats that needs to be trapped, fixed, released. I am STILL SAVABLE. I'm just a kitten.
