My mother is worried my landlord will kick me out from having kitty litter scattered on the floor which has to be swept up constantly, even though I don't have garbage and trash laying everywhere. The last time I stayed at my parent's the upstairs room were clean but the toilet in the basement was disgusting and the garbage next to it was overflowing with used tissues, so she really shouldn't talk.

I can't put a dome or a guard over my cat's litter box because they have trouble moving around in it even though the box is quite large, and the ridges on cat mats need to be at least five inches high.

I can imagine a cat getting lost in my mess, and not even the smell of its rotting carcass would escape.

My home is a complete and utter mess. I try to keep organized but it never stays that way. It is hard for me to focus on cleaning and I just want to do my research.

I prefer order...enables me to function more efficiently...unless of course I have a good enough reason for putting off cleaning.

I am a complete slob. I find housework overwhelming so I tend to put all my energy into things I enjoy instead. It can make life hard.

I guestimate it must take me 3 times the energy expenditure of the regular person, to be clean and tidy.

I'm generally a very tidy person. I keep things in order and clean, otherwise I can't function and start shutting down. If I'm in a hurry to get out of the door or something I will leave dishes in the sink but it still bothers me.

I can cope as long as the gangways are clear, hygeine is reasonable, and I can get to the stuff I currently need. But the sight of mountains of dusty, random clutter doesn't fill me with delight. On a good day, it's invisible (probably because I'm focussing on other things). On a bad day, it makes me feel annoyed with myself.

I'm not very clean or organized at all. I guess I could be worse because at least I throw away my wrappers and put my laundry in my bin, but there's definitely an organization issue. :P

How tidy I want to be: very. I aspire to be very neat and tidy. I admit that I am much more relaxed and satisfied with a very tidy house in which everything is put in its place, free of clutter or dust.

How tidy I am: not very. I do too much "I'll do it later" thinking. Dishes don't always gets washed everyday, the floor may not be swept all the time, things don't get picked up like they should. My personality fits tidiness very well, and sometimes I get frustrated because I am messier than I want to be and I don't know why I can't get it together enough to REALLY clean and organize everything.
