Where's the Poop, Where's the Poop

Part of dad's job is to inspect recently vacated apartments for damages, left-behinds, etc., and one day recently he walked into a unit, noted how well cleaned it was overall, but was stopped in his tracks by the overwhelming scent of poop.
     Dad searched high and low, looking into every cabinet and closet, opening drawers even.  He couldn't pinpoint where the odor was coming from as it pretty much permeated the entire apartment.
     On a whim he decided to pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and lo and behold, there, occupying the space beneath the refrigerator was a 20 or so piece collection of crusty turds that had to have been batted there by the previous resident's feline occupant.
     Yeah, a photo would've made this post a little more powerful, but dad didn't feel it was proper to share for work reasons.  Besides, I'm sure you've all seen a bunch of poop before, right?  Maybe just not on the floor under the refrigerator...

Yikes! I feel bad for the cat that lived there, his owners couldn't have been god to leave that.

Ew! How could the humans who lived there not figure that out?!

Katie Isabella said...

You DO have to wonder though Cleo, if the owners were not kind. And by the way, it was wonderful hearing from you again. You know Torties are mom's favorite except for Tuxies? Admiral was a Tortie. So you are gorgeous and a pleasure to see and hear from. xxx

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That is funny! The kitty probably had lots of fun batting them under there. Flynn once batted a mouse under the fridge and it stunk to high heaven!
I pulled the fridge out but couldn't find anything. Several months later the fridge was taken out and a mummified mouse fell off the condenser.

John Bellen said...

Wow, that's a new one to me. I don't want to think about the fun and games that went on getting them there...

Timmy Tomcat said...

We are really good at pooping where we should but I guess if you miss that is a place to put it.
