Dear Desdemona: Potty Punishments

Dear Desdemona,

My brother hiked his leg on my dog steps. Can we double neuter? The first one obviously didn't take.

Dear B in B,

Are you female?  I’m think you must be, because no male would ever come up with the idea of double neutering!

Regardless, I don’t think double neutering is an option.

I suggest you even up the score. Find your brothers most prized possession, have a nice long drink, and let loose!

Dear Desdemona,

With all this rain we’ve been having, I’ve taken to doing my business indoors. My people feel this type of behavior is unacceptable. I feel it is cruel & unusual punishment to have me go outside-they don’t.

Can you help solve this crisis?

Thanks in advance,

Dear Cooped,

I also don’t like to do my biz outside when it is raining...or windy...or dark....or too hot...or too cold, etc.

The conditions need be right - I understand.

Do you have any siblings that you could frame for this “unacceptable behavior”?  This is my first suggestion.

If you need a plan B, I recommend hiding the evidence.  You can do the deed under the couch or bed, behind the recliner, or in the cat box.  Use your imagination!
