Traipsing Poo Paws

This entry was submitted by Andrea L. and is the winner of a $25 Gift Card to Kelly's Closet!

This story wasn't so funny at the time, but it is looking back. Looking forward to the reading the results of the contest!

When we were still in that period of constant sleep deprivation that comes with a newborn baby, we sometimes got a little lazy. One of the things we did (since our baby co-sleeps) was to keep a few of his Bum Genius diapers in bed with us and just do midnight changes without getting up. The end result was that there were often a few dirty diapers at the foot of the bed.
One morning I woke up and noticed that there were quite a few yellow spots on our white sheets. Our cat had stuck both of her front feet into one of the (very) dirty diapers and walked around on the bed.
The best part was when my long-suffering husband (who had the cat foisted on him when we got married and the cloth diapers foisted on him when we decided that I should stay at home) woke up to find that he had a few spots of mustard yellow poop on his chest too from when the cat slept on him. He told the cat that he was going to sell her to the Gypsies-- luckily she caught a mouse later that day and got back into everyone's good graces.

LOL!!! My son uses that same "Sell you to the Gypsies" line around his house & my 1 yr old granddaughter has started saying it.

Yuck!!! Its funny when you have kids, bowel movements are so normal for you.

Katrina said...

Yuck. Sounds like something one of our cats would have done.

Diane said...

Ha! Were you ever able to wash off the cat's paws?

Thanks to everyone who submitted their stories... it was really hard for us to decide because everyone had such funny stories!

The icing on the cake (so-to-speak) was that cat getting poo on hubby. That was downright hilarious! I had a wonderful laugh!

Thanks again to everyone who participated!

Too hilarious! My cats are fascinated by all things baby as well and get into all sorts of mischief...

Oh my, I think my hubby would have still sold the cat, mouse or not!! That is too funny!

Crazy cats, they have minds of their own. We prefer dogs. :-)

I'm so excited! Now I have a really good excuse to try out the Gro-Baby. The cat, somewhat disgustingly, had already taken care of the problem of her messy paws by the time we woke up.
