So This is Love
Odie is terrified of storms and either takes refuge in the bathroom or slinks over to me to be wrapped in a blanket and cuddled. My cat is a man-child, and I’m completely fine with that.
We had some storms roll through here the night after Labor Day. Odie was in bed with me, hiding. I thought the worst had passed so I rolled over to get more comfortable (one of us has to get up and go to work in the morning, right?). My back was to Odie as a large bolt of lightening lit the sky.
Devoid of cuddles, Odie wet the bed.
As I realized what was happening, my heart broke for him. People without pets may not understand loving something that pees all over you (hmm… unless they are parents), but I hate not being able to comfort Odie. I hate knowing he’s so scared. He’s never wee’d in the bed before, so he must have been completely beside himself.
This pee-bacle also reminded me how much I love Will. As soon as I said “wake up, Odie wet the bed!” he was off getting towels and clean sheets. There was some Googling on how to handle cat urine and then we went back to bed.
Will even let Odie come back to bed with us after I wiped him off.
I love my boys.
