Once upon a time I saw a picture of a pair of really cute shoes, and decided that I had to have them. I visited Kohl's, Sears, JCPenney's, The Shoe Department, The Bon-Ton, and every other store that looked promising. My feet were tired and ready for those ugly Hush Puppies by the time I got back. Finally, I ordered them on Ebay from a store that had exactly one pair of these left. The brand is Bongo, and this style is called look at me. I hope to have many lovely evenings in these shoes and live happily ever after, sometimes.
Alas, shoes do not solve every problem a girl has. Pictured below is the product I hope will solve a big problem and save my sanity. I am having humongous cat-urinating-where-she's-not-supposed-to problems. I have fallen into despair and don't know what to do, except lock the cat in with the litter box room while I'm at work, but that would seem cruel, since there's no window down there. The cat is already nutty enough without an infusion of cabin fever.
Once again, though, I had all kinds of trouble finding this product. Sure, I could buy it online, but that means paying shipping & handling, and I'd rather just go out and buy it. I started at PetsMart, and was shocked that they didn't carry it, then WalMart--I had to try Walmart, they're supposed to have everything, right? This was punishment. I'm way too lazy to be walking all through huge crowded WalMart, searching for one little bottle of stuff. And then trying to get out of that medieval, crowded parking lot. As a last resort, I tried The Crappy Pet Store, which is the closest store to my home. I'd walked all the way up to the door before I realized that they'd actually paved that parking lot I'd wailed and whined so much about, and then some young person actually came up to me and asked if I needed help and then checked me out right away! I almost fell over. Last time I was there I'd vowed never again, but emergency forced me to, and it was a happy ending. I hope. If this stuff works, I'll post a permanent advertisement for it. When I finally found it, I had sticker-shock, but...it's supposed to be the best thing out there, everyone seems to recommend it, and hopefully, I won't have to use it forever. If this product works, I will live happily ever after most of the time.
