Sometimes We Just Have To Improvise

As you know, my cat Molly is 18 1/2 years old and she’s been struggling with Thyroid and Kidney disease for the past 3 years. Several months ago, Molly decided that she no longer wanted to urinate in her litter box. She would urinate on the bathroom rug. This was very frustrating since cat urine has a very unpleasant smell and every time I walked into the bathroom, the first thing I smelled was urine. I was constantly washing the rugs over and over until they were being to lose their fibers and fall apart.

Re-training a sick 18 year old cat is not practical so I had to come up with a quick solution. I purchased a pack of puppy wee wee pads and placed them next to her litter box. She began urinating on the pads so I just throw the soiled pad away ad replace it with a new one. I do this about three times per day. The pads absorb the odor, so there is no longer an odor in the bathroom and  since the pad are thrown away this eliminates an unsanitary situation. As they say “whatever works.”

I’m sure that there are other solutions but this one was quick, clean and not disruptive to Molly.
