I ... I need help. Okay. So. My cat ... craps on my bed.
Yes, you read that right. Don't even ask about the circumstances under which I tend to discover that she's done it, because I don't want to talk about it.
What I would like to know is if anyone else has any suggestions, because here's the thing. During the summer months, I can keep the door to the bedroom closed and just keep the cats out of there, but the heating here is not all that efficient in the bedroom, so I would like to be able to open up the bedroom door. I'm serious - last night, the bedroom got down to 56°F while the rest of the house was a toasty 62.
The circumstances are these: it's always the same cat (the other one is better-behaved, even if she's the crankier kitty in general) and she always seems to do it on the same sheet. I have a couple sheets that go on my bed, and it's always the blue sheet she craps on, and I'm not sure if that's coincidence or meaningful. Either way, I have febreezed the holy crap out of the sheet - along with the rest of my bed (eugh!). I have not changed her litter, or the deodorizer I put in the litter box - or her food, or the litter box - anytime recently, before or after she started doing this. It started several months after we moved into this apartment, so I don't think it's the new place. She had a clean litter box, food in her dish and water in her other dish at the time.
Does anyone else know cats well? I've had cats for years - actually, I've had this particular cat for close to 5 years now (she's about 6 years old) and she's NEVER done this. I want a warm bedroom! Also I miss my nightly kitty snuggles, keeping them out of the bedroom. :(
