YOU Be the Judge

Kitties. My client went beyond the pale.   I have represented the kibble stealer, Sticky James the Kid.  I have done a superb job for him in the past as I felt sorry for him after I thought about it when I was about to sue him for eating my kibble you may (or not) recall from the time he was 6 months old till now.

Today however, he compounded his problems by dipping into my litterbox a total of six times.  He was so fast that he got there first--- over and over with me and his mommy hot on his trail to intercept but alas...never quite in time.

 His hand was in there sifting through the litter a few seconds each time. And a good pint sized amount of litter loose on the floor that first time before we realized  where he was and what he had done.  I had  made a transaction in there just before!!!  So he was washed thoroughly.  We would all turn around, and he would slip back in there to inspect again.  Finally we kept him away from the area period.  Never had that happen before.  It sure won't happen again.

I told mom I may have to turn the case over to a prosecuting Cattourney.   I'm debating with myself on the matter.  I may confer with my fellow Israeli  Cattourney to see what would be a fair judgment to seek.

I shall delay the matter until then.  And too, I may decide to defend him again if he promises to stay out of my litterbox.


Shall I sue- or shall I defend Sticky if other Cattourney's sue for violation of Litterbox? 

You be the judge.

Sighs. Some clients are just... special, and must be given more leeway. We strongly suspect you have one of those. We are voting to give this mini miscreant one more chance to see the error of his ways.

i think you should defend him but get the litter box waiver in writing sweet Katie!

How funny. I was about to answer the same as above. Boys are gross, Katie. That's just the sad truth. However, he can't help himself so I do think you should continue to defend the little guy.

Give that James a litter scoop and let him clean the box, Katie!

Hmmmm....I would get a baby gate and put it in the doorway of the room where your litter box is situated...that is what we had to do to keep Cinnamon from eating poopsicles...

At least he doesn't dress you up in costumes like poor Joanie endures every Thursday :) XO

Dearest Katie Isabella,
NO, you don't want to sue... It's alright and nothing happened, it only makes him a strong real boy! I've eaten chicken poop when I was a toddler and no harm ever!
Sending ya'll oodles of love.

Whoa! I didn't know those kids DID that sort of thing! I'm glad the only time I see them, they aren't near my litter box.

Mickey's Musings said...

Good heavens, what a violation! Perhaps he was trying to learn to clean it since you say you'd just made a deposit? Catman in training? I say leniency is called for this time, lets see if he can learn better catman protocols.

Leo says: Katie! I'd flip if my box got invaded.. but then, I would flip if any little person came to my house so you're already nicer than me, MOL! I've missed you while mom's computer is in pieces (not my fault, I swear) would you like to pop over for snackies and some kitty cocktails to make up for lost time?

CATachresis said...

We agree that boys will be boys .... and some girls too!! I am sure your Israeli cattorney will give you sage advice!!

Pamela June Kimmell said...

This is quite the conundrum Katie....sticky persons are a bit unpredictable at best but rummaging through litterboxes seems a bit - well - rude. I shall leave this up to your judgment as to what, if any, punishment OR defense should be offered. You are, after all, the Queen of your castle!

Hugs, Teddy

Laila and Minchie said...

MOL! Must teach that one the sacredness of your litter box, Katie!

imbrite2 said...

I can see where Sticky James gets his nickname from, KI. EEeewwww. Mom keeps me on my leash to avoid just such situations from happening. Good luck with this kid....

Love and licks,

Maybe it is because he loves everything about you, Katie.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Sounds like you need some patience when dealing with him

meowmeowmans said...

Somebuddy needs to give James a litter scooper, Katie!

BeadedTail said...

We thought only dogs do that. We had no idea little sticky people do too! Maybe that's why peeps put them on leashes!

John Bellen said...

Good Heavens! That's really giving a hand to crime.

The J-Cats said...

Katie, We need some time to consider this difficult case.
Whatever We/You decide, We think it is impurrative that you recuse yourself from dealing with the matter purrsonally, in light of the clear Conflict of Interest.
We will get back to you on this matter.

I think you can check his motive before deciding to defend or sue..maybe he had a good intention to check if you had a healthy output :-)

Katie Isabella said...

I shall await your thoughts on the matter and I will recuse myself. You are right. I allowed my judgement to be clouded.

Did he confuse the litter box with a sand box? We've seen pictures of Sweet Baby James on facebook and we would have trouble prosecuting him...

I would refer him over to the Cat attorney General and see what he/she says. Liitle sticky fingeers should be treated like the criminal he really is. Don't let them sweet talk you out of it either. Maybew you should play around in his poo box and see ho he likes i!
