    Why are men so dumb sometimes?

    For some reason, if Kirin and Sushi are "loose" (meaning having run of the house) they prefer to drink water from Samantha's bowl as opposed to their own. Don't know why. So because I've been treating their ailments (Kirin's URI, Sushi's conjunctivitis) by putting terramycin in their water, I want them to drink only THAT water so they'll get the antibiotic.

    This morning, I asked my husband to clean out the litter box and put it in the spare bathroom. I moved their crunchies and water up there as well and left, thinking that he didn't need any further instruction to put the cats in there and close the door as well.

    I came home early (not feeling well) and was greeted by Samantha, as usual... and Sushi... and Kirin. My husband MOVED the litter box but didn't shut the boys in the spare room! Since their food was left unprotected, Samantha ate it all so the poor kitties have been starving all day AND not drinking their treated water!

    And he wonders why I feel I have to give him 4 instructions to do 1 simple thing! What a weiner. So now, instead of having had them only having access to their own water from 9am-2pm, I'm going to have to put them up there NOW for a few hours, and miss having them around.

    *sigh*

    Men.

    Carole, I completely agree... except I was feeling some effects of a few beverages I had last night and didn't feel like doing much of anything this morning... If you catch my drift.

    Boy can I relate to this story! We TNR the park cats and seclude them out on our patio until we can release them. The other morning after a successful trapping session he released them. I came home to their food and water dishes still setting on the patio, and the trap cover wadded up and laying there, along with the trap. Now keep in mind you're suppose to bleach all this stuff before you use again, including trap, so you don't expose anything to any other cats. We have several ferals that come in our backyard to feed and drink and now I don't know if they were exposed to this stuff. Sometimes I could just scream!
    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers

    Husbands try hard (sometimes) but they just are incapable of doing the job we wives do. Next time don't assume he will get it cause he won't. It's like talking to your children, explain, explain, explain and check up on the results later.

    An ex-boyfriend explained it to me: If you do a lousy job, you won't be asked to do it again.

    My husbands excuse for everything use to be "I don't know how to do it." He'd use that one to get out of doing laundry, cooking something simple etc. My response to that was "If you can work on a tank for a living I know you're not to ignorant to figure out how to follow the directions on the back of a box of macaroni and cheese or a pizza. I also bought a DIY car manual and try and fix on my own car when it messes up! hehe I like to show him how smart I can be just to show him how silly he sounds sometimes about little stuff. Plus I enjoy messing under a hood. BTW if he doesn't do something right I also leave him more stuff to do until it's done right. I'll go on complete strike sometimes until he gets the point!

    Boy do I know what you mean! When I went away for a few days, I had left explicit instructions to feed and water the fosters, and to scoop the box. Well, I called from the hotel night #1, and was ASSURED the cats were all fed and watered.... then twenty minutes later I got a franctic phone call saying they couldn't find the food. Now, I wonder... how can they have been fed if hubby can't find the food? I told him several times that the kittens needed to be fed several times a day. Poor babies got fed at 7:00 in the morning and not again til nearly 10:00 at night. They must have been starving! I won't even go into the state of the litterboxes when I got home. They swore they scooped twice a day... just swishing the clumps around doesn't count as scooping!

    I agree.... MEN!

    (oh, I'm sure RICHARD will love this man-bashing thread! )

    I hope Richard don't get offended too... Maybe he can shed some light on the topic, from a mans point of view.

    catnapper... I BET yours actually thought THAT was scooping!

    LOL Richard

    I was amazed at my hubby today. I came home for lunch and went to go scoop the box (it was overdue...) and the hubby said.....



    "I'll get it honey"

    and he did it too! He even is cooking dinner (should be done when I get home he says) and is cleaning the house!



    Im not sure if I should be reallly glad or frightened! Hehe, I do love my man though, even when he acts like a dork
