CatGenie Maintenance and Dream

The CatGenie wasn't draining again, so I took it apart and found a fur&granule clog in the hopper just behind the red washer. I washed it all as long as I had it apart. I'm concerned that I had this kind of clog with such short use. I was already concerned about setting to auto while I'm away at Minicon over Easter, and now I'm sure I don't want to do that. I don't know that I want to give them an old-style litterbox during that time, either. I'm going to have to think about this.

I had a variation of the pushing-me-out-of-my-house dream. Dad and Sue and my brother Rick and I were visiting friends for a long time and when it was time to go home, Sue told us that they'd torn down the old house and built a big new one while we were gone. She and Dad started right off, and I decided to wait until Rick was ready to leave. He didn't want to leave so I eventually went. The house was a castle/mansion and when Sue told me to look for my room, I couldn't find it. There were servants everywhere and I found that my stepsibs each had their own floors, but I couldn't find anything for Rick or me. I eventually found a senior servant and asked him. He said sadly "Well, you could keep looking." I asked him the quickest way to where the valet had my car keys and he told me. I went back to the friends, and Rick and I stayed there a couple of weeks until I found a place for us.
