There is a new kitty in the Ensie-Frinklin household. There was no misadvised adoption this time. This feline came to us via Frinklin's parents. She was a birthday gift from us to Frinklin's Mother 5 years ago and never adjusted to the move from California to the Pacific Northwest. Or rather, never adjusted to the two Westies that Frinklin's Father owns. She started refusing to use the litter box due to stress and despite undergoing every medical test, trying every brand of litter in existence, changing foods, using every trick, and even using prescriptions, no solution worked.

Frinklin's parents are installing new carpet this week and the cat pee damage is so bad that they need to do work on the concrete pad before they can install the new stuff (my parents had to rip out some drywall in our rental house due to cat pee damage - it's serious stuff). They tried to send their kitty to the Humane Society, but were told that cats with litter box problems are not accepted and that they would need to either find her a new home on their own or put her to sleep.

After discussing it, Frinklin and I offered to take Sadie in. She's very sweet and even though our house isn't exactly calm, a new situation may remedy her litter box issues. The last 48 hours have been smooth sailing as far as the litter box is concerned. There has been a lot of hissing and growling whenever the other cats spot each other. The boys don't know what to do with her.

Every time we reach an equilibrium in the household we add something/one else to throw everything off.

And did I mention that Sadie's nickname is "Thumbs"? She is a polydactyl cat (she gots extra toes). It makes her look like she is walking around on little mittens.

Sweet little Sadie:

Aww! Tooo cute! I can't wait to meet her in person!

Sadie is finally getting her first real sleep, I think, crashed out on her side on top of Jeffrey's crate. I've had to carry her to the food, to the litter box, to the "safe" places in our house as she is so standoffish around the other cats. She ate like crazy last night after fasting for 36 hours. She's also so round and not used to exercising that she's having a few issues jumping to reach food and with balance getting into and out of her preferred litter box. She's a little butter-ball right now! She has yet to realize that there is an upstairs.

Thanks for your publication. One other thing is that often individual American states have their own personal laws that will affect house owners, which makes it very hard for the the legislature to come up with a different set of guidelines concerning foreclosed on homeowners. The problem is that every state features own regulations which may interact in an unfavorable manner with regards to foreclosure procedures.
