I left the house clean this morning
when I came home it was ragged with **** everywhere

kittens ****ting behind my bed, peeing in my bed! yeah!
there's a couple that haven't figured it out

THE WHOLE HOUSE SMELT LIKE 10 YEAR OLD CRAP

Lucy in the kitchen being as ugly as ugly can get TO A KITTEN

I grabbed Lucy by the nap of the neck and showed her what ugly was

Then there's Jupiter.. ****ting in the kitten litter tray...
a big terd big as your thumbs, laying in the little kitten tray...
pure ol lazy

then there's greed.. I CAN'T STAND A GREEDY SO AND SO

I told Jupiter to stop doing that...
I don't care what the Amazing Pussy Wizard says he better hear me..
there's power in the word NO

Cats will run you down and run you over if you let them

for weeks, everywhere I step, or lay or lean.. a kitten squeels...

so what is the solution to all this aggrivation?

I broke bad! yes I did.

right now? hell, I CAN'T FIND A KITTEN OR A CAT NOWHERE

at least not up under my feet

I got up in the middle of the night to stoke the fire last night, Im
squatting in my bday suit...
doing the fire thing.. raking coals to the front of the stove...I lean
back a tad and a Jupiter is under my balls... #$%$^%%^%^, I have a hug
piece of wood in one hand, a poker in the other... Sooo...
you put the log down... suck up all the aggrivation and say...
"baby.. sit over here" for the millionth goddamn time...

are they too dumb to know? yes, they are..
are they too dumb to get with the program? no they are not!

Now Lucy is playing pretty in the kitchen
Jupiter is laying on the bed
kittens are sleeping...
everybody is happy, including daddy

For who a father loves, he chastises. If I didn't clear the air and
remove the aggrivating behavior, then all my kids would be *******s

cats needs boundaries, cats need something to respect.. as in...
it's ok to clear the air and show some displeasure
they do it to each other

If a kitten gets in Lucys face, Lucy swipes them
If Lucy swipes a kitten, I hound her down with a broom
and muther****ing dare her to do it again...

im the big cat around here, I call the shots, Im in charge

Cats love a good natured push over

GIVEM A FUR COAT AND THEY THINK THEY OWN THE WORLD

they will run you ragged into the ground if you let them

don't worry about the love, they don't love you no way... you're a fool
if you think they feel any love, they don't.

THEY WANT TO SURVIVE.. they are simply a social creature and that's
fine! we take advantage of their instincts and "pretend" they are
requitting our loves.. but no... they are merely eating. or...
continuing in their social practice and surviving, don't fool yourself.

My point is, it's never the cats fault, cats will take as much
advantage as you give them

they do... so.. if you have monsters on your hands, you're the blame,
but you are also the solution.
Just break bad.

You need to to spend some time with them &see if you can get mummy to
show them how potty training goes.

I know you are finding it difficult, but don't chastise her for using
the litter, cuz it is her way of trying to show them hoew and where
they *should* be going.
I have had the odd mummy llike that & also know how annoying it can be
for you, so I do understand.
The only cure for this one, is to let mummy cut a bit of slack.

Confine her to one room so that you have less palce's to clear up when
you can't be there with her & kitty's,make sure that you have a litter,
plenty of water & her food down.It won't take her too long to realise
why & she will show her baby's what to do so that you cut her a bit
more slack too.
Best of luck on this one.
Shout if you feel it isn't working &we can try a different strategy

I called it:
"Barry is now chronicling a doomed litter of kittens. From conception,
to birth and every heartbreaking event from now on. You and I both know
what's next.

I've fostered litters and I'm sure many of you have too. They will
start to stink and he'll get tired of them and either turn them
outside, or if they're lucky, he'll take them to a shelter long before
they are old enough.

They'll never see a vet. Then the ones he does keep - if any - will
get knocked up and he'll start the same, ugly cycle again. All because
he thinks it's "cute" and full of "life".

Anyone have a puke bucket handy...?

You're a ****ing idiot. Lucy and Jup know better how to train those
kittens than you ever will. Do nopt ever take a broom to a cat - not
even to scare it.

You're an asshole and an idiot. If I had the means, I'd send someone
over there to liberate ever single one of those cats.

CRINGE. Please don't let your testosterone get the better of you. You
don't have to play big tough man to your cat.

Greed is a condition pretty much owned by humans.

You cannot put out litter trays and direct who goes to what tray. In
fact, you catch a cat in a litter box and give them hell -- they will
STOP using the litter boxes. Makes sense, doesn't it? You've taught them
to go anywhere except the box because the box is evil.

Barry, they're cats. They aren't a personal threat or a competitor.

Yep, you have too many cats. You couldn't wait to have them. To have
that many cats, you have to have a lot of patience and you have to
understand cat mentality. They aren't an animal to whip into shape and
make them obey you, they just aren't. You want to make them afraid of
you? Keep up the work with the broom. They'll never be under your feet
again, they'll be cowering away from you.

I started to read your post and was sure you were going to say you
couldn't handle the situation and you hauled them all off to Wal-Mart.

So what are the plans for the kittens? They've been wormed already, right?

This makes me sad.

I've been thinking about what you said, lol

Let's talk about capacity for a second, we all have one
and let's face it, cats are no picnic.

Had I known then what I know now, I would have still taken Jupiter and
Lucy.

About capacity, see... it's not just the cats... think about it (im
just speaking for myself)

One can put 1,000 to flight but TWO can put 10,000 to flight, 3 can
take a city.

Thing is... I am alone, I don't have any help, even a soldier needs a
break sometimes.

Truth is, I have been affected by external affluence. (somebody
aggrivated the living crap out of me)...

cause normally..? them cats are not even a second thought. (i just came
to realize this after reading your post and thinking about what you
said)...

True, I blew a fuse. If I had yesterday eve to do over, I wouldn't have
yelled, but I have a capacity and a human had dumped so much on me,
towards me... I was about to pop. I am no god or angel Im just a man...

Thanks for listening

one more thing... How come I don't get any warnings when I am
approaching capacity
seems like I should have this thing nailed down by now

and tween you an me, I never hurt Lucy, part of my venting was ranting
on here
<pivoting one heel from the ball of my foot>

I exxagerated, there was **** all over the house,just one little nugget
I had stepped in
but it did stink in there

and you know what? for all my ranting.. wanna know what it did for the
cats?'

Nothing.

This morning Jupiter was crouched up n the kitty litter tray, lmao
I ran her out (this morning).. she goes in the kitchen only to greet a
sour puss Lucy

Oh well

I see. You beat your cats because someone ELSE "aggrivated" (sic) you?

But you still would have beaten them with a broom? How restrained of

sounds just like little kids, kids also need to be shown boundaries
too, in fact kids liek to have rules and structure so they know what is
what. Infact i was reading somewhere about orphaned and hand reared
kittens having poor social skills and being scratchers and biters when
they grow up more than normal cat-raised kittens.

the reason being that the hand reared ones did not have the mother cat
there to give them a swat with a paw whenever they misbehaved, or their
siblings there either to do the same and put them intheir place when
they stepped out of line. In effect they did not learn 'manners' inthe
cat sense of the word, and when to not bite humans and others kitties
and how to play nicely, and when they became adults they geenrally
foudn it hard to get along with other cats ina household.

of course there can always be exceptions to the rule, and I am sure
that someone will come up with some, but it does make sense to me.

btw kittens do poo, alot, a hell of a lot, you have to be prepared for
that, but they are worth it

I think they are all going in the litterbox now, I have to scoop it
again now, it's only been about 5 hours...ive got a larger tray for
them

The largest kitten is catching up with Jupiter in size, she's a little
bit lunky, but growing in poise and grace.

Lucy (little sister) rants on Jupiter and the kids all the time, she
needed a little jolt; she was being so vile with the babies, I HATE IT
and I HATE GREED

I am convinced that they understood nothing I told them. I give them
waaaay to much credit, I blasted them.

I called Jupiter a little slut for bringing all this in on us.
I looked at her and told her it's her fault.

and I told Lucy, I was gonna take her to the gas chamber if I saw that
**** again
she did it again this morning, but not near as ugly, so I pick and
choose my battles.

Im just brutally honest where others need something to runnay finger
through

KICKIN N SCREAMIN

it was not a hell in here, I was just very bold, no pain to anyone,
just bold.

I sat in the lazy boy and there was a kitten up in the chair, I smushed
a foot some.
A black kitten, the foot is swollen around all the toes, the heel and
up the leg to the knee

I am broke tonight or I would take it to the vet at the corner.

Maybe someone will sponsor the injury, but Im pretty sure there are no
rich bitches on here. sheelagh dont have much money, I know you don't,
Nomen could probably pay this, I think he damn well should. Matt pays
his dues, I wouldn't feel right letting Matt pay this one, lol...

Im tapped out, but the kitten is not crying so... I bet the swelling
goes down tonight.

For pain? all I can say is it's hot as a handbag in a can of mace in my
bedroom.

I picked up a 2 full time jobs...

Im just brutally honest, and the stuff they was doing was more than I
could take anymore. not the kittens, but the fighting.. over the
weekend, Lucy and Jupiter went toe to toe.. fighting. 2 explosive
rounds in several room in the house.

I broke them up by exploding on them with my voice. boom they broke.

I don't have time for this mess... where is the love?

WHERES THE FREAKIN LOVE I DEMAND IT

YOU NEED TO TAKE THE BLACK KITTEN TO THE VET, IMMEDIATELY, sort out the
money another time, write them a bouncy cheque or something, put it on
a credit card, how much will it cost? you cannot leave this kitten to
be injured as it will get worse if it is not treated and so will the
cost of treating it if it is not looked at soon (ie if it is serious
and not attended to it may get infected, need amputating etc and that
willl cost much much more)

also, you can say what you like to cats, they won't understand a word,
but if you want them to stop unsavoury behaviour and do something else
you have to use POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT such as giving them treats when
they do something acceptable, puttign catnip in the places you want
them to be or visit to scratch, give them a treats when they go to
toilet in the right place such as the litter and not the bed. shouting
will just scare them and a scared cat shows it's distress by peeing and
pooing everywhere but the litter tray because it is distressed and
scared.
think about what you can do to encourage GOOD behaviour.
and check when you next go to sit down you big fat clumsy *******

I feel hurt for her in this, I don't have a checking acct, that's a
good idea
but still, I woulnd't break the law over this.. not this.. (write a bad
check)

she is walking on the foot, she lets me touch it and I can tell it is
not broken.
I have also seen her with the leg and foot up under her.

She's appears to be comfortable, there is no blood, so there is nothing
to sterilize, no risk of infection. Im going to crate her for the
evening, maybe the night and watch her closer.

The kitten whos foot got hurt, is doing better. The swelling has come
down a little bit.
It simply looks better. The kitten is wrestling and kicking another
kitten with the foot (she's doing this as I type)
I watched her climb with it, run on it, now she's kicking another
kitten with it.
I am relieved, It's going to be fine.

I never set in the recliner (or my office chair for that matter)...
there's always a cat in or on something
They just let me lay down in my bed. I have a bad case of bed head.

It's coming along, I think there's only one kitten who is going outside
the box.
I just caught her fixing to pee in here.. in the studio.

I agree, confining her would speed up the learning part...

you know... having the place tidy and consistent helps too
keeping the box clean helps too...

I just sat the pee'er in the box, she'll catch on

I know when one is fixing to poop cause they say... ow oww owww
just before they go, lol

I wouldn't advise bouncing a check, but I understand why bookie told
you to(& so would I for that matter if I did't have the brilliant vet i
do have.
Bouncing a cheque over here isn't as big a deal over here as it seem's
to be over your side.
We just get snotty letter's from the bank & penalised financialy
afterward's...that's we why we try not ot, but if need's be, I would
too if I had to
I hope thing's are a bit better thanb they were?

I take it back, I would write a check for an emergency such as that
one appeared to be, the swelling is almost gone, she's moving about
normally. I suspect she somehow over extended it, thus the swelling,
but little thing snapped back together.
I gave 2 black ones away today, Im keeping the last black one since
she/he was hurt. It loves me so much.

I found a home for the tortie, but didn't get off work in time, I
missed the woman who wanted it.

And bookie is wrong, it's not about wether or not cats understand what
we are sayng, it's about, do they "get us"
somewhere in our words, they sense many things about us.. right? they
have to!...

So! I encourage everyone to talk to your cats like people, they love
it!

For example, about a week ago I told Jupiter. <my eyes got big> and I
told her.. "it's going to be cold as a witches tit tonight"
DO YOU KNOW SHE CLIMBED UP ON THE WOOD PILE, LOOKED AT ME AND LAID
DOWN.

She knew. She fully understands and appreciates the purpose of the
wood.

tortie cats are the best cats is the world, they are all slightly
insane but they are all wonderful, i really miss the one we had for 17
years until she died last year afer losing the fight with a massive
tumour in her stomach, 17 years of madness, love, games, 'presents'
brought to you in the morning and dumped on your bed, purrs, dribbles,
head butts, more purrs, and lots and lots of love. Tegan was a
wonderful cat and if i had the chance to have another dark tortie cat
again i would, i am drawn to them in shelters because of her. People
say they are a bit unhinged and too feisty and unoredictable in their
behaviour but tegan never was, she was too busy purring and demanding
cuddles to be feisty.

what i mean is that they do not understand the exact words, but they
will take on board our tone of voice so you could be telling one of
them they are a smelly waste of space but in an endearing voice and
they would take it as a compliment and start purring because of your
tone. You can tell a cat to 'get off the kitchen table' but they will
not exactly understand what you just said, they cannot speak english
for christs sake! what they will understand that if they get a treat
when they are on the floor and off the table they will be better off if
they stay on the floor. Simple positive reinforcement here.

you do not always have to use scolding to train an animal, but praise,
cuddles and treat when they do want you want them to do (or just avoid
doing what you do not want them to do) will go a long way and is
generally far more effective.

i agree, definitely talk to them but don;t expect them to understand
perfectly what you are saying, talking to them in a calm and soothing
is very good for the relationship. Some people seem to think that
talking to their plants makes them grow, but not so sure about that.

not sure I do, what is 'cold as a witches tit'? is that the same as
'cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey'? or is it colder?
why the wood?

simple enough, better than nailing them with a sock, is catching them.
AHA! I KNEW IT!

watch them run.

you're a sucker and your cat plays you like a cheap fiddle.

haha, yes it is, no it's not brass ball cold yet.
I just got home about 30 mins ago, I took the tortie to her new slave.
I rode my bike up and down hills to an old bus station and handed the
cat off to Ms Mary.
That went down nice.

I flew down some big hills on the way home, the cold wind brings tears
to your eyes and pushes it's icy tentacles up your nostrils and into
your forehead, water is stinging your nose and eyes.
Your lungs are pumping icy cold air, but you don't think about it.
