So, I have this thing I do in the :whispers: facilities area.
Mom has been tracking all of our output for the last few years, especially since we became.. umm... richer in years. Weirdo.
And in that time, she has seen that I have this adorable**** habit when I'm about to go.
I hop in the box. I wait. Maybe I hop right back out.
Sometimes I stand there and my tail goes up - the flag of Pee Intentions -
but then comes the BIG question -
will I pee or not?
If mom is sitting nearby, she holds very, very still and is very, very quiet so as not to distract me.
I admit that as a Princess, I am quite dainty and delicate and the slightest thing can derail this.
If I don't go, then I usually circle back two or three times until I'm finally ready. Maybe I put it off for another hour or so. Maybe it's done in ten minutes. That's kind of fun because Mom really loves the suspense, and the wait to see if I'm just being delicate, or signaling that I have a problem.
***** ok, Mom doesn't think this is so adorable, but I do!
It's been like this for years and probably always was.
I HATE it. The watch, the wait, but this is how she does things.
There is one thing... Mom is still furious over the owner of our rental who decided to come in when she was not here and was unaware he was coming, to work on the dryer vent issue. She was, as always, very clear that she has to be here, just call her when you need to get in. She does not allow hoomins to be here if she's not. In all our years with her, and being renters, this has never been an issue before now. She says we go through property managers, and don't directly interact with the owner. Which is probably a good thing because she does NOT have a high opinion of him for several reasons. But the doofus decided to handle this himself, and apparently has no respect for boundaries. Even worse, we still have a plumbing issue to deal with.
We hope everyone has a happy week. And calm people. Because it's a lot of work soothing them.
