Hayley spent her first year of life on a ranch. She made it to the big city, which is when I adopted her. I didn't know (at the time) that she had just been impregnated by a feral father.
Two months after I gave her a home, she gave birth to 7 healthy kitties. I found homes for 5 and kept 2 of the offspring. Momma still lives with me as well. She's since been spayed along with the young-uns.
But Momma can be a bad girl. While she immediately learned and understood the significance of using the cat box, sometimes Hayley can be rebellious. She has performed #1 and #2 in various strategic locations around the house a number of times. Not often, maybe once a month or two months.
I know about being territorial. I have googled a number of cat websites to look for the answer. The best I can come up with says she is stressed. Stressed!! Over what? She doesn't have to work. I take care of her small family, both financially and health-wise. She sleeps 22 hours a day, wherever the hell she wants to. Often she sleeps in my lap while I'm reading your blogs.
But 2 nights ago, she crossed the line. I was watching the television machine in my easy chair. She jumped up in my lap and immediately -- started pissing in my lap.
