Leia on Thursday: Will She or Won't She?



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!


Mom:
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.

  1. WEll, Golly! Leia...I sometimes sit right outside my box and just stare into it, (it's hooded cause I stand up to pee). Sometimes I sit staring 10 or so minutes, and sometimes just a few. Then, I climb in. I usually like to move stuff around in there before I use the facility. THEN finally mom knows when all is quiet, I am using my box for its intended purpose. XXX We rule, Girlfriend.

    1. I often go up to the box for a few seconds, to check it out, then walk away. We aren't boy kittehs, we have a process here.

  2. Leia, I am a princess too. Sometimes my mom will actually carry me to the box when she figures I need to go. I will talk talk talk and rub against her legs, then stand in front of the box, then walk away, then finally get in. Then I have to get in the right spot. When I'm done she says, "I knew you had to go," like it's a miracle or something.

    I love the Flag of Pee Intentions!

    1. She's been known to bribe me with treats to get me close to the box... I am so glad to see I have sister Princesses who do things like I do!

  3. I do that too sometimes, Leia. And the mom does exactly the same thing your mom does...holds her breath, doesn’t move and watches me and what I do. ~Wally

  5. My human is always checking out us cats in the litter box! It's crazy. And when we go on a trip, can you believe, she MAKES me go before we leave? Well, she can't "make" me, but I know I won't be around a litter box for a while, so if I need to at all, I do go. But yeah, it might take me a while if I don't absolutely need to.

  6. OMC! That is EXACTLY how TBT acts when he is around when we visit the litterboxes!!! We are utterly unconcerned. Heck, I used one once WHILE he was cleaning it...

  8. Hahaha I do the same - be very still and quiet while boys are in the bathroom. And suspense! I love when I hear flowing or dropping sound :-)

  11. HA! I love it, Leia! Way to keep your mom on her toes and let her know who runs things!
    Cammie!

  12. You certainly keep your mum guessing, Leia. Flynn would charge into the litter box, squat and pee, then charge out again.

  13. my stars leia; I agree it's not polite to watch when one attempts to take care of one's personal, but mom can catch an infection early on this way ( and we hope you never have one ~~~ } hugs ffrom dai$y =^..*= ♥♥♥
