I Did A Thing

Okay, we have all seen Pinterest by now. I am sure like me you have all tried and failed at several very interesting Pinterest ideas. Let's be honest with ourselves, they make it look way too easy most of the time. I know I have picked one or two DIY crafts thinking "this will be a piece of cake" and scrapping it half way through because I realized whoever created it on Pinterest was obviously a DIY Home Network Pro.  I could list my Pinterest failures but today I decided to list just one of my successes.

Have any of you seen the play house makeovers? Pinterest has been flooded with them the last few months and I vowed that if I found a used playhouse for the right price (or free) I would snag it and spruce the thing up. Well, my time came. I found a playhouse for cheap that had been collecting dirt, dust and spiders in someones yard for a few years. A neighbor helped me go pick it up and my two day project began.

I paid $40.00 for the playhouse (I tried but could NOT get the person to come down on the price).
I purchased $30.00 in supplies.

Total Spent: 70.00

This particular playhouse brand new is priced at $170.00. (And still ugly brand new).

Here are the before and after photos:

My daughter LOVES it and for a kid that plays outside all the time (seriously, she never wants to play inside) the remodel was worth every single cent.

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
