I bought two of Miriam’s pieces when we went on our awesome cruise this summer that I’ve yet to write about: one for myself and one for my sister. We both love our pieces and get great comments every time we wear them. Right now this is my favorite of her pieces available on Miriam’s website, however this one is not part of the contest: William Morris Necklace.

It’s absolutely amazing! I love the metal work and the colors of this piece. It makes me happy.

I’m not here to tell about my favorite pieces, rather I here to inform you on ways you can WIN A PIECE OF YOUR OWN! To be honest, I’m posting to get 3 extra points to help ME WIN, but that’s neither here nor there! If you want to try your odds against me, here are the details from her webpage:

This phase was worse than last week. I had to sit on the floor after 1 and ½ days of no potty usage and encourage her. She finally went but still won’t take her paws out of the litter. I think she’s going to pitch a huge fit when it gets even smaller. She’s also using the edge of it rather than the middle, which I think is going to cause problems for her in weeks to come.

I hadn’t planned on removing another portion this week because of her hesitation to use it at first. I’m glad I didn’t have my heart set on it because on Monday night we had an accident so I wouldn’t have been removing it anyway. I’m monitoring her, but she’s been resisting and crying a bunch this week. Hopefully she won’t have any more accidents and we’ll be downgrading the CitiKitty next week.

Even though the hole looked huge to me in week 4, Knyckles wasn’t fazed by it a bit. We had zero problems this week – praise God – but now the hole seriously looks huge! It’s intimidating to look at even for me…

I guess we’ll see! 🙂

This is for the patient at heart. Luckily I’m very patient with small things like animals and children; it’s the large things I am impatient with like myself and appliances. After applauding myself on Knyckles using the potty without a step, we had a turn to the dark side. One day with no usage, two days with not a drop, three days without even venturing into the bathroom and in a few hours it would be four days. I was starting to panic imagining her little innards backing up and eventually exploding from her bullheadedness. I had replaced her box after the first day worried that perhaps she didn’t like jumping onto the toilet but that obviously didn’t help. As we hit the evening of the third day, I took my post next to her bathroom and encouraged away. She came and sat with me then lay on her box and thirty minutes later she was up there peeing, and peeing, and peeing, and peeing. She peed so much that it filled over half of the CitiKitty covering her back feet before leaking into the toilet. Aha! Perhaps this is why she didn’t want to go. I cleaned the CitiKitty and then followed her around from room to room until she gave up, trudged back to the toilet and finished her business. Since then she’s been going like a champ. I think she’s learned to go often so she doesn’t get her feet messed. She still won’t put her feet on the seat. We scraped by this week with no accidents, but I know for certain that if I wasn’t home and encouraging her we would’ve had one. Last night I removed the second portion and the hole looks huge! Wish us luck this next week.
