Abbie was blocked up again last night. Poor thing. I didn't know until this morning, when I found him laying low under the bed again. He seems to be going a bit more freely again, but it looks like he was asleep when the blockage passed or shifted or whatever cause his poor backside was soaked. Of course we can't have him hanging around all day like that and I'm pretty sure he hates it as well, so I hauled him up into the sink and sprayed him down a bit.

Sensing that I was about to radically change his worldview as I picked him up, he struggled and mewed when I put him into the sink but pretty much calmed down once I started spraying. There was a feeling of camaraderie here -- I said "Hey, kid, we're all in this together" as he let me wash his backside and I think he understood. The feeling, at least. I tried to keep him around so I could towel him off but he decided it was time to go, so he hopped down and ran off while I grabbed in vain for the towel that wasn't there. I had to hunt him down with a few paper towels instead.

Now there's assorted puddles around I have to clean up, one interesting spot near the catbox itself, and probably something under my bed that I'll need to tackle with the Nature's Miracle and some mop-like apparatus. And I wonder why nobody visits.
