    Default Just a bit frustrated need help

    Hi, Iím just ranting as I canít talk about this stupid problem to anyone else

    so Iíve started making jewellery a few months ago on and off and recently I painted our spare room, put the new flooring in and set up my desk to start making jewellery.

    However my husbands has two cats and we usually keep their litter box in that room and the cats sleep now and then. My problem is the cat litter box stinks as you would expect and theyíll throw up, sit on my chair and cover it with their hair, it just puts me off to go in that room. I canít focus if things are not clean it freaks me out!

    Weíve had many arguments over this and I can see my husband is trying his best, he set up a new area for their litter box in our garden, but they never go outside. Every time I go in that room Iíll find their sick or hair ball on my desk and the floor etc it just puts me off. btw I donít have any problem with cats I quite like them just donít like the mess that comes with them. Weíve had conversations so getting rid of them is not an option and I feel sometimes my husband loves his cats more than me lol

    Iíve now stopped making jewellery as I just donít want to go their and get upset anymore. I need some ideas suggestions to overcome this as I donít want to give up on making jewellery.


    Thanks and sorry for the rant!

    Maybe look if there are jewellery courses available at a local college. Then you can still get your making fix in a cat free environment.

    I don’t have cats, so forgive me for my naivety, but couldn’t you put all the things they hate in that room for a while - I’ve heard cats hate the smell of vinegar. Also, if you have a room in your house that your husband uses a lot more than you do, perhaps you could put all the things they love in there, butter their paws and leave them in there to lick off the butter, you never know know, by the time they’re done they might be so content in there that they never leave that room again.
