Sassy cats – The spot

Hazel: Here it is. Smells so good!

Hazel: Here it is. Smells so good!

There is a spot on our family room carpet. You can’t see it and neither can I, but the cats love it. Not just one cat but all the cats.

Hazel: Maybe it's better over here!

Hazel: Maybe it’s better over here!

They sniff it. They roll in it. They sleep on it.

Hazel: This is the best spot in the world!

Hazel: This is the best spot in the world!

I get that weird feeling. Did someone do a butt wipe on the carpet? Was something (maybe catnip) ground in? I can’t smell anything. (Yes, I knelt down and smelled it.)

Hazel: Hey Morgan, smell this spot! Isn't it great?

Hazel: Hey Morgan, smell this spot! Isn’t it great?

I look at the spot again. I try different angles. With a bright flashlight. With a black light that would show body fluid spots. Nothing. Nada. Zip.

Morgan: This spot is mine! All mine!

Morgan: This spot is mine! All mine!

Another feline mystery of life.

NOTE: There are no pictures of Mollie because I didn’t have the camera handy when she rolled in it. She’s much more camera shy but she loves it too.

  1. Cats are such picky creatures when pointing out some spot Staff keep missing….Molly will lick and roll on any weird smelling spot ( a real tip off for staff if the cat suddenly decides the facilities should be cleaned every 5 days instead of 7), but RC may give a stretched neck sniff then jump back as if jolted by electricity if there’s any doggy weirdness ..and the cat will make a real distainful dramatic detour around a spot if staff is watching…just to make a point.

  2. At the point that you pulled out the black light I got hysterical. Pretty funny. Could be a butt wipe.But it seems an extreme response to a mere butt wipe. After all, you can probably find those on my . . . kitchen counters, sadly.

    • I do! Many years ago Jake had a urine issue and I had to know where he went. Cats go in the same spot so I had to neutralize quickly. Comes in handy. It’s good for human body fluids too. Betty is amazing. Three weeks from surgery on Monday and doing very well.


    • They may well be playing me on this. I think I heard them giggling in the other room while I was using the black light. However, when they are staring at spot on the wall or bookshelf, it usually means there is a bug or (yikes) a bat. As they tell me all the time, humans have such poor eyesight we miss all the good stuff in life.

    • Could be. The floor is over a basement with a cement floor so it’s unlikely we’ll ever find it but you never know. I’m staying with the butt wipe story myself. Or maybe just a bit of flatulence that stayed. Like dogs, they enjoy a good nasty smell sometimes.


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
