My cat is now on a special diet (Limited Ingredient, which in this case is cat food made from duck and green peas - and nothing but) so that I can rule out any possible allergies that may be causing her coughing problems. She's also on steroids for her inflamed bronchial passages. Her new diet/meds is having one major side-effect, and that is paint-peelingly-stinky poops. This morning she came into the bathroom and laid down some pipe in the litterbox as I brushed my teeth, and the stench was so horrible I could almost see it. And even now that I'm at work, it's like my nose has Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, because I keep thinking I can still smell it, even though that's totally impossible, unless some stray scent molecules managed to hitch a ride on my clothes. Lord have mercy.

Hey, at least you get to leave. I work from home (which is why I'm not *really* complaining), and we have such a small space that there was nowhere else to put our cat's litter box other than in the office, pretty close to my desk. When she drops one, I know it. I've got a little air freshener bottle handy at all times, but sometimes even that doesn't help and I'm thankful for my laptop, so I can relocate to another room for a few hours.
