found a huge pile of feces i can't reach to clean!

now i know why it's been smelling--not from the one area we had found, but because back behind the computer mickey made a huge mess! the only problem is, i can't get to it because our computer desk is V shaped and heavy wood. and the cat made the mess right in the middle of the V formation, behind. what can i do? i called my hubby and he suggested trying to pour cat litter on it. did that! now what?

I think your only option is to wait until you have help to move the desk out and then clean up the spot. Putting cat litter on it may actually encourage your cat to continue using that spot as a "litter box".

Is there any way to block Micky from going back there? If so, maybe you can wait a couple of days for the poop to dry up and vaccuum it and the litter up with a vaccuum attachment?

You could use a litter stick. Also known as an Ez-Reacher, Litter Gitter, etc..

Maybe make-shift;
Attach some super sticky masking tape to the end of a broom handle & hope for the best.

Good luck.

got it!!

Well, now we can breathe a (clean) sigh of relief! Hubby was able to get to the feces yesterday evening and we cleaned everything up really well. There have been no more incidents since a couple of days ago, so that is good. Thanks for the tips, guys!
