eyes I drink a lot water in the morning. I'll have had 3 full glasses before I leave the house. This morning I had to take my kitty in to see the vet. That went ok, cept I had to climb a ladder to get her off the valance over the living room window. She always seems to perceive when it's time for a vet visit.

While I was in the vet's office I felt the urge to pee. But it wasn't bad. It was just about time to go home and I was just finishing up writing a check. The drive home is about 20 minutes. All was well. I knew I could wait.

By the time I parked my car on the street where I live, I had to go pretty badly. Usually if that happens, I can sit a couple more minutes and the urge will go away long enough for me to get inside the house. There are several steps going up to my sidewalk, and the sidewalk is about 70 feet from my front door. Okay...I'm scoping it out and think I can make it without sitting the extra couple of minutes.

I jump out of the car, walk around to the passengers side and grab the cat carrier and fling it over my shoulder (cat yelling all the while). The cat weighs about 20 lbs. and the wind is gusting about 40 mph. I only weigh 95 lbs. The wind catches the cat carrier and the cat is jumping around. I can hardly walk and the urge to pee is at a fever pitch.

I got up two of the steps and it started. I couldn't hold it back. My estimated front door arrival time was severely hindered by the weight of the cat, the wind hitting me, the cat carrier and blowing me off balance. I couldn't even hold myself because there were two neighbors hollering and waiving hello at me across the yard. By now I am merrily peeing as I'm walking. I still had the 70 feet to go yet. So what did I do? NOTHING! I continued trying to walk and I continued to pee. And it wasn't just a normal pee. It was a full blown bladder release. And then I started laughing real hard. Yeah, that helped. I peed the whole length of the sidewalk. Luckily I had on black pants and it didn't show. Thank God it wasn't my gray sweats that I usually wear on weekends. When I got close to the house I just stopped for a minute to finish peeing before entering the house. I swear there was a stream running down the sidewalk.

I haven't peed my pants since I was a toddler. On one hand I was totally mortified. On the other it was pretty funny. And how was your day? LOL! By the way, the cat if fine. Just a check-up kind of thing.

WOW!! I impressed that you are laughing about it! I can't imagine how uncomfortable that must have been! At least you were home. When I have to pee I have urgency too ever since I was diagnosed with CD. Wonder if there is a connection?

Oh that warm feeling until air hits it and then wow it's cold eh....not that I've peed my pants recently, it's been around 34 yrs but it's a feeling you don't forget...somehow it's seems a little more acceptable to pee your pants than to poop them...society...what are you gonna do.

Fitzy...I'm usually pretty good at control...until I'm one step inside the bathroom. Then it's either a mad dash to the toilet, or I have to stop and hold myself and do a little dance till I can get my pants down. (Some people have no shame. That's me!) Sometimes the urge to go is so bad I end up half falling off the toilet because I'm so desperate to sit down that I can't aim. LOL! I'm usually okay until I see the toilet.

Squattie, I just about pissed my pants re-creating the picture in my head...and I love that the cat is 1/4th your weight, LOL!

It reminded me of the time I crapped myself in "The Ham Sandwich Store" (long story - that is my nickname for the place) after a colonoscopy...I had to throw out my underpants in the trashcan, balled up in a wad of toilet paper. Ick!

A little pee never hurt anyone. Just don't drink it if you're stranded on a desert island.

Squattie - I also have a large orange and white boy cat. He is 17 pounds and double pawed. The vet says he is not really that fat... he is just solid and big boned.

Now, dont you wish you had skipped that last glass of water. I dont have the problem of tinkling in my drawers, but I have been known to not make it to the throne on time and that little dance is well know to me too. Glad you can smile about it , its all water under the bridge, or down the sidewalk as it were..

Hi Sure hope you don't have every dog in the neighbourhood running down your sidewalk. I know I've had some close calls too and it isn't always funny. Just glad you and the cat got in safely before the wind blew you both away. lol gail

I actually went to a specialist and she found nothing wrong. But I have had similar experiences. You can only laugh OR CRY, LAUGHING IS BETTER!

thanks for the funny story. I am sorry it happened to you. I have held my pee many times so I can go at home. I might have to rethink that. glad it happened outside and that you can laugh about it.

Oh Squattie, I can so relate. I loved your post, cat and kennel flying in the air, you proably looked like Mary Poppins trying to hang on. Oh, Sunday morning I went and got my usual Smoothie, thats another post. I walk in put my keys on the bar and put up my billfold, my two pooches got left outside while I made my little run. They were at the door making sounds like someone was killing them, golden retriever & 1 yr old Britney Spaniel that I named hell dog. I get this urge out of no where and I had to pee and right then. I literally stood at end of the bar and peed right down my legs into my flip flops. But puddles in the flip flops is no good, trust me on that one. So pooches had to stay out longer till I got things cleaned up, Bright orange pee on pink terry cloth capris, nice, really nice. Susie

I haven't peed my pants in a long time. Last time was when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter. Don't know what it was but everytime I would get on the porch and the key in the door I peed my pants. EVERY SINGLE TIME. I wouldn't even feel like I had to go, but everytime I got to the door it happened. LOL

haha....that must have been kinda embarrassing. At least nobody saw it.

I had a coloscopy on March 28 and had an accident. I was drinking the prep solution the night before and fell asleep too soon. Let's put it this way, my system wasn't empty when I fell asleep. I bet you can just imagine how much fun that was when I woke up. At least the prep solution cleared everything out before I went to sleep. it was clear stools before I went to bed, so the one in my sleep was clear too.

Still kinda gross though.

peeing your pants, pooping your pants....Ah! all par for the course! You have to laugh about it....Just be glad no one was standing around with a video camera . You would have won the 10,000.00 $ on America's funniest home videos for sure. Also be glad your kids weren't around. Mine love to tell horror stories like those at family reunions. Of course, I'm always mortified until some other kid pipes up and says...."that's nothing,,my mom/dad....." we just can't take life or ourselves too seriously. I'd much rather laugh than brood or feel sorry for myself. A good belly laugh is so much more beneficiall to your health. Just think , you bladder is shot...but laughing about it will keep your B/P in check!'
Thanks for sharing. I'll have that image of you with that cat and the wind and the 'pee trail from your car to the front door for a long time. Love you for it!

It happens..All you can do is laff..I had a lot of coffee one morning and was bursting . I figured I'd make it home, but got caught at a train crossing.The train had just started going across.It was about a mile long, and started slowing down, then came to a complete stop..I guess they had to throw some switches further down the track..That was it..I knew the flood was inevitable, so I found a large garbage bag that I had in my car, and put it underneath me to save the seat..Then I just relaxed and enjoyed the warmth..
So you see,it can happen to anyone at anytime..LOL tongue tongue
