Congratulations to our friend Barb, her Grey Boys and Whitey! Not the Mama!
Mom ended the post yesterday to investigate what Illyana and Kirby were into. She could smell something. Mom builds miniature furniture and some times uses tung oil to make them shine. She has not had time for this hobby in the past few years but is getting back into it. She had pulled a plastic bottle of tung oil out and left it on the work bench. it was in a bottle similar to this.
Some cat had knocked it off the bench ans since it was old, the plastic was brittle and the bottom broke out! Illyana had stepped in it and then on the work bench; Mom could see her tiny foot prints. Then che came to the computer where Mom was and patter Mom on the face and then shook her hand. That is when mom smelled the oil! She did not get any pictures cause she was more concerned about cleaning it up and making sure it was not on any cats. She only found one front paw on Illyana and she got a Foot Bath. Mom held her by the scruff of the neck and washed her foot with Dawn and warm water. She did not like it,at all! Then Mom user a whole roll of paper towels to wipe up the slime. Since it was old, it had gelled. Then she used Dawn and water and scrubbed the carpet. Yep, indoor/outdoor carpet, not vinyl or wood floors! It is still sticky and still smells, but we are staying away from it!
