Kelly - I have a squirt bottle, and thought about using that, but I have some youngsters - two are 5 months old, two are 6 months old, and their curiosity or desire to chase things sometimes overtakes their sense of self-preservation. That would most likely work in the long run, but I need something that where there is no danger to them and I can do my workout.
Don - you have a good idea. I do have a guest room that is off limits to the cats. I kind of wanted to set the up bike up in front of the TV so I would not get bored, but maybe I could get a TV for that room (my guests would probably appreciate that, too), or better yet, move my small TV in the gues room and buy a bigger one for my bedroom. Thanks, Don. I like the way you think.
I know what you mean by cat overdosing. I have 7 cats who are in the house all the time, and 3 that come and go, so sometimes I have 10 in here, but usually it's just when I serve canned food. I also feed 4 ferals, so I totally understand cat overdosing. I find that seven is a bit too much, and actually the 4 youngsters are up for adoption (the 5 month old girls are at the shelter getting spayed as I type this).
