I don't know if anyone wants to read this, but,
As I continue to clean out the rubble, I finally got to the back corner of the spare room which has been a storgae space for many years. I could barely get in there.
Anyway I finally got there and found a TREMENDOUS pile of cat shit which has to have been there awhile.
I did what I could; have to go in and vacuum and spreay and shampoo like the dickens.
I was so put off I had to go away from there for the rest of the day.
Pardon the gross, but this has been so demoralizing I needed to get it off my chest.
Kitty has been squeezing back there for awhile, in spite of an always-clean box rightt at the door.
