The First Easy Sunday of 2012

Happy New Year, furriends!  I don't know about yours, but here, things have gotten off to a not-so-auspicious start.

I must admit to an embarrassing problem: I sometimes have accidents in my sleep.  Mom is not really sure if I'm sleeping or have to go so bad I can't be bothered to make it to the litter box.  It's not something I care to talk about, 'cause like I said, it's rather embarrassing!

Well, I had an accident on the bed this morning...and I just happened to be cuddled up with mom...
She woke and noticed the smelly blanket first...and then the wet spot on her leg!

Mom got up and took Wriggley out to do his business - she didn't want any other accidents in the house! Then she had to clean herself up, and then tear the bed apart and start some laundry.

Of course, this meant all of our breakfast was delayed (but somehow mom managed to make coffee straight away...hmmm...but that is really a good thing...).
Some time ago, Mom got a waterproof mattress protector so she wouldn't need to banish me from the my bed.  The good news is that it worked, but we only have one.  So now my bed has to stay torn apart until everything dries (we don't have a dryer).

I'm just gonna take it easy here for a bit, and then maybe find a sunbeam to enjoy, or perhaps catch an episode of bird tv - we've had some very good programs lately, including the hawk again!

As things have started, the year can only get better!


  1. We're sure your mom understands that accidents happen, Smidgen. We assume you've been checked out and there isn't a health reason for this? If not, it could be a good idea.

    We wish you all a *healthy*, happy, treat-filled 2012!

  2. Well, that's why they call 'em "accidents", Smidgen...we know you wouldn't do that on purpose! (NOT like some whizz-happy denizens here...)
    And like you said, things can only look up!
    Happy New Year, we hope 2012 sends you love and laughter. And dryness.

  3. Accidents happen. At least your Mom was prepared by having that mattress protector. Probably not the most fun way to wake up though.

    Happy New Year! We hope 2012 is a wonderful one for you!!

  4. I am sorry. We hopes that your bed is dry now! It is wonderful that your mom thought of a mattress protector!!

  5. It happens, but your Mom loves you no matter what and she will get you checked out if necessary.

  6. I'm with Fuzzy Tales, my first worry is that there is something wrong that needs to be checked. I am assuming you already did and that there is nothing wrong.
    If that is the case then yes, "accidents DO happen!" xoxoxo

  7. Aww, Smidgen, sorry 2012 didn't start off the way you'd like.

    It can only go up from here.

    Wishing Cara, Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie and Wriggley the happiest of new years!! xo

  8. Aw, poor Smidgen. Your mom knows you didn't mean to do that...and we hope your accidents are few and far between!

  9. Oh Smidgen, the year really did not get off to a good start for you did it? You are right, it can only get better from here!

  10. Never mind Smidgen. It's a good way to start the new year!

  11. Sweet Smidgen, these things happen and no need to be embarrassed. Good thing Mom has the protector. We hope there's no problem.

  12. We're sorry to hear you have a problem ~ might be worth a trip to the vets in case it's an infection of some sort. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  13. Smidgen
    accidents happen. Mom usually gets thrown up on in bed, but she has the bedding fixed so if we do, it's only one or two things that need washing. Your Mom understands it's a good thing Mom has that protective mattress pad.

  14. Well, that kind of thing can happen! We all understand! You don't have a UTI or something, do you? Can kitties get spay incontinence like girl pups? Both of my sisters took an all-natural treatment for that.
    I just want you to be OK!!!
    Play bows,

  15. Smidgen, accidents do happen and we wish you a wonderful New Year. May your 2012 be filled with many blessings.

  16. We hope it is only temporary and things get better.
