for every cute kitten, there's at least one mad cat...

It's all their fault. They turned me into a mad cat, and there is no option but to make them suffer for the rest of their sorry, fur-less lives. I can say is, Thank God I can type.

If you are a human who has stumbled upon this site, please, if there is one shred of decency in that body of yours, leave this site open for the cat to find while you're at work.

Thank you.

My Litter – My Life

Litter box solutions shouldn’t be that difficult.

I don’t really require much to be satisfied – a warm spot to sleep, a nice scratching post, food and water all day long, some pleasant brushing, and a clean place to do my business.  That’s all…  not much.

My Humans do a relatively good job of giving me those things.  But I hear stories, horror stories, of litter boxes gone very, very wrong.

Since we step into our “toilets” with our little footies,  shouldn’t it be every Human’s desire to make sure the litter and boxes are clean?  Think about it… how would you like to step into your toilet, dig around, do your business and jump out without anyone ever flushing it or scrubbing  it.  Hmmmm????  Not a pretty thought, is it.

Okay, go ahead and delete that from your brain.  Sorry.

When a Cat steps into the litter box, he or she has two things in mind… relief, then dig dig dig bury bury bury dig dig dig.  In other words, that litter (and the goodies in it) are going to get flung somewhere if the box is loaded with poops and clumps of pee.  There I said it.

Please keep the litter box clean.

Onto two of my recommended goodies.  First the litter, then let’s have a little fun with the litter box.

Let’s start with the simplest thing – a good litter.  My recommendation?  I like this Nature’s Miracle Odor Control stuff.  It smells nice, clumps nice, and generally works like it’s supposed to.
I’ve had to endure some pretty awful litter in my day, and this one makes up for that.
My personal feeling about corn litter and newspaper litter is “I’d rather not.”  Sorry.  My Humans tried, but corn smells funny when it gets wet… and so does newspaper.  Those big pellet things fly all over the place.  But, whatever you Humans choose, keep it clean.

Now, if you really want to have fun, get an automatic cleaning litter box.
It’s good for a few laughs (or not, as evidenced by the Cat in this picture).
Personally, a good old regular litter box works just fine, but if you want to go high tech, this is cool.
But, hey, this Scoop Free Automatic Litter Box can be rather entertaining, and you don’t have to get your little hands dirty.

Then for the completely insane luxury kitty toilets, here are the winners –
The CatGenie Self Washing Self Flushing Cat Box and the Litter Robot LRII

Okay, that was fun. Now, would you mind getting those things I left in my litter box OUT?! Thanks.

    Those robot litter boxes make me feel a little bit skerred. We use Feline Pine clumping on account of Harley’s EGC (he can’t use anything with dyes or perfumes). I like a big litter box.

    Oh Daisy… I know we would get along just fine. I like a big litter box as well. The bigger the box, the more litter there is and the more room I have to dig. I can get in there and do my business and fling litter like crazy.

    And yes those automatic litter boxes look a bit scary to me, too. I don’t exactly know how it would know if I’m in there, you know? That’s all I need – to be in there, relaxing, and all of a sudden here comes “the thing.” Don’t know what that would do to me.

    Thanks for stopping by to chat with me Daisy. You’re an awfully purrty gal!

    Cat litter is a BIG issue with us, most seem to have artificial stuff or be bad for the cats and environment in some way. So lately I have been using dirt. Yeah dirt, as in cheap topsoil. It’s not bad. Not good either, but the cats LOVE it! I checked out the Nature’s Miracle but it’s made with corn cobs, and the corn is probably GM (which is one of many reasons why I won’t use World’s Best) and I refuse to support any company that uses GMO’s. While at Amazon, I did see Kitty’s Crumble All Natural Coconut Husk Litter and it looks promising, I think I’ll try it. Anyhow, thanks for the post!

    Thanks for the comment – and the tips! Kitty’s Crumble sounds interesting. Coconut Husks appeal to me… got me dreamin’ of the South Seas, hammocks, warm sun drenched mice… anyway, I digress.

    Now the regular dirt sounds very interesting as well. I’m thinking how fun that would be! Just a bag of potting soil and we’re in business – to do our business. hmmm… I like, I like. Hey! Another thought.. what about sand. Just plain old beach sand. Oh, the possibilities…
