Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm recently remarried, 3 yrs now. My wife came with 2 cats and a dog. I figured she was worth it. We all have baggage right? One of the cats, the dog, they work out alright despite the hairage.

Anyway, one of these cats happens to be really fat. Ok, so what, right? Well when this cat hits the catbox for his "daily constitutional" he blows out the entire house! I can't even begin to compete with this feline. It's eyewateringly horrible. This thing is going to be alive for at least another 3-5 yrs!

What can I humanely do? I'm thinking about taking this cat on a hunting trip.

Change its diet. Tuna fish.

If it were my cat I'd try anything. But, it's her cat. She used to be a veterinary assistant. She knows best. My uneducated opinions aren't appreciated.

Oh, and the automatic cat box deal we bought for $100+? It can't even move the cats contribution. It just goes *eeeeaarrrrrrggghh*-*chunk* and stalls completely.

I'm trying to convince her to put the damn box outside and we can put a cat-door in. She won't go for it.

I'm thinking hunting trip...

Cats are very good hunters. However.

Do not feed a cat tuna fish. A change of diet, however, may help. Maybe you could convince her that a special vet food is required for weight control and all.

Also, a vet visit about the issue might be in order. Believe it or not, that's not normal. It's true. I wouldn't lie to you.

Here's the other part of the story. This cat seems to have a condition. It was a victim of neighbor poisioning about 4yrs back. Barely survived and hasn't been the same since in the cat-box department. It basically doesn't digest very well though it looks freakin healthy enough. "Herby" is the cat-box/home Terminator.

LOL the hunting trip, and congrats on the re-marraige. Look at the high-tech catbox alternatives. Fans, flipping boxes, etc. Ask your new wife to please take the lead...

I would agree with Georgina that a visit to the vet...with a sample from the catbox...is in order. Especially when you say the cat has a known problem with nutrient absorption, and is obese, it sounds like a special diet is in order. The down side...for you, not the cat or your wife...is that getting the cat onto a special diet might help it live longer. :wink:

I'm thinking that chanting and meditation should do it.

For Drankin...

Maybe I could imagine the odor as an exotic incense. :approve:

Maybe your kitty needs his chakras aligned.

Or perhaps just a better kitty litter?

My wife and I have these little differences of opinion from time to time (meaning every 5 minutes) however, the hunting trip solution is out. My wife likes to watch murder mystery dvds and gets them by the dozen from the library. I don't mind so much since I don't watch, I just sit and read. However, she takes notes and that makes me nervous. I have reminded her on many occations that the complicated murder plots in these movies don't work. The murderer always gets caught. But back to the cat, the one that was a victim of neighbor poisoning about 4 years ago and is cruising for a replay. I like the cat-door idea. That way when the odor gets to be too much, you can go outside. And while you're at the bar, your wife can clean out the litter box.

They only get caught in tv or movies, not IRL. It was nice knowing you.

Wouldn't that be a drankin-door?

You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish...yet apparently you can tune a cat.

I'm going to keep pushing the drankin door. If the cat disappears, whether it's my fault or not, I will be the prime suspect. I don't have an out on that one.

Maybe I can find a hitman who does cats and makes it look like natural causes.

:rofl:

It's amazing what cats put up with from humans. You know they must snicker about this stuff down at the dumpster.

Aha! Admit it, you're just trying to make up for the last botched attempt at felicide! :biggrin:

Noway! I like the cat. I'd like to strangle the poisoner for not finishing the job and subjecting me to the smell of a botched attempt!
