On the Bugger vs Pills front, the pill popper has evened the score some. No muss, and not all that much fuss – although he was not a happy kitty and flailed about a bit (accidentally got me with a claw, too. Owie.) The medication is helping, too. He managed a mostly solid deposit shortly before we pilled him.
Unfortunately, said deposit didn’t get made in the litter box but on the living room floor, but at least it wasn’t liquid. Hopefully as things settle down he’ll use the box more. I can understand with things being as they are that he doesn’t get much of a signal before things start moving, but that doesn’t mean either of us like having to be on poop patrol all the time.
Such is life I guess.
