It's nothing but cats cats cats around here.

It's been about 19 years since we had cats using a litter box. Cat litter has improved considerably. I highly recommend World's Best Cat Litter.

Francine is a fastidious little darling and one would hardly know she used the box at all, she is so tidy and dainty.

Homer, on the other hand, has inspired a whole new vocabulary having to do with his bathroom habits.

  • biggun...they all are
  • pungent...their aroma
  • slider..he's so big he barely fits in the litter box. Do they come in extra large sizes? Sometimes his bigguns slide down the side. And worse, over the edge.
  • wafting...when the pungency of his bigguns spreads through the house
  • cutlets...the clumpy stuff looks just like breaded chicken

The cat litter claims that "World's Best Cat Litter™ clumps so well you don't have to scrape and chisel like with other litters. Moisture is absorbed in a compact and easy-to-scoop clump." Francine's moisture makes lovely round blobs that are easy to scoop, but Homer's moisture sprawls and sticks to the edges and corner and I still have to scrape and chisel the cutlets. Sigh. I'm sure he's pining to go outside, and we are too, if we ever find a cat door big enough.
