There are many ways a cat can express his discontent — my old cat Tom, for example, was fond of spraying — but I have to hand it to Pete. When he is pissed off, he poops in Larry’s tub. Not just in the tub, friends! But in the drain. He aligns his little kitty butt just so and poops into the drain, which means that Larry then flies into a rage and is forced to fish cat turds out of the pipes while I try really hard not to laugh.
Larry has been working on fixing the windowsill in that bathroom (why did the homebuilders of 1947 put windows in the tiled bathtub area, only to rot years later? discuss) so he isn’t showering in there right now. Last night it occured to us that we should put something over the drain so at least if he poops in the tub again at least there will be no fishing expedition. (Admittedly, this thought came to us rather late in the cat-poops-in-drain-repeatedly game.)
So, I ask you: what would you put over the drain to prevent your cat from depositing turds in there?
We used a jar of marshmallow creme.
