My cat Jack has been in our family for over seven years! That's almost as long as I've been with my wife. That's freaking commitment! We've had our ups and downs like any relationship (back to the cat, that sentence would have been less polite otherwise). He has anxiety issues (I'll spare you an entire blog of my cat's psychological history).
This weekend a friend of mine was in town and stayed the night. I closed all the bedroom doors, including the office that night to make it easy for my friend to find the bathroom and the way back to his room in the middle of the night. OK, so I'm a little neurotic when I have house guests. But we were drinking and I wanted to make it as easy as possible. Whatever!
Damn it Jack! In case you didn't know, cats are vindictive...kinda like women. He punished me by climbing up on top of my brief case and taking a massive crap. This was no easy task either, it was propped up against the shredder so he had to back his ass up onto the bag to make sure the right angle was maintained to keep the turds from rolling right back down onto the floor. Yeah, probably should have warned you that this was going to get gruesome ahead of time. I'd apologize but, you're the one who clicked on a post about cat pee smelling like curry! OK, so I cleaned it up and life went on.
The next day, I was working in the office and Tina comes in and says, OMG, it smells like cat pee in this room. Not sure how I hadn't noticed it, but i have my suspicions...not prepared for that kind of TMI just yet! So later that day, another friend stops by and I threw on a hat to run outside to get something for her out of my car. I suddenly was enveloped in curry...straight yellow curry in a freaking can, not simmering aromatics, just overwhelmingly, stereotypically, Indian. The smell grew stronger as I left the house and outside was just overwhelming. I came back and ask our friend if she smelled it and she gave me a look like...you mean cat piss? Yes, yes I do! But she only shook her head, no!
Tina said the office still smelled like cat pee, so she lit a candle and told me to find it and clean it. I didn't, but a revelation hit me in the middle of the night. That little shit peed on my hat! I woke up and grabbed it and walked it straight to my wife and said, smell this, does it smell like cat pee? I thought she was going to punch me in the face because yes, oh god yes, it does! I tossed the hat in the garage.
Vindictive, poop on my bag, pee on my hat, jerk. But why does it smell like curry to me? That's just weird. I switched him to an organic cat food last month, so I'm thinking it must just have some herbs and spices that have altered his system...or I'm freaking nuts and am associating cat pee with some of my favorite food in some psychological break of my own.
