Dear Carolyn: I live in a home with two indoor house cats with a litter box. My eighth-grade daughter is supposed to be responsible for sweeping and scooping litter but does a terrible, lackadaisical job. Its in my laundry room, where I smell and step all over scattered litter. Half the time the litter appears untouched despite my constant pleas.
Im sick of constantly reminding and chiding her to clean. I secretly want the cats gone, as the litter stinks and also they shed everywhere, and I hate my clean laundry being near filthy cat litter. She just laughs and says Im too picky.
What can I do? I am ready to move out rather than continue being ignored.
