May Ling here...just a sec...
Kitties, Rupert's post about our litterboxpools garnered lots of comments with questions!
So I'm gonna answer 'em...
just let me hop down.
The Baby's not the only kitty in the house with mad jumping skillz!
C'mon and follow me out to the Catio.
::pad pad pad::
We have three litterboxpools, two on the Catio and one inside the house. In addition, there's a HUGE plastic tub in the Little Out for our convenience.
Here's Mommy with the bucket and shovel, all ready to scoop.
She's got on one of her snappy outfits.
It's enough to blind you!
Our first litterboxpool literally blew into our
life yard one afternoon when we had a windstorm. The funny thing is that Daddy had just talked to a friend who had said that's what we needed! Karma.
The others were purchased at Wally World and KMart. And y'know what? The one from KMart is a DOG wading pool, and has a BONE imprinted on the bottom!
ha ha ha!
We use Fresh Step Clumping litter, because that's what Sam's Club sells inexpensively Since there's so much litter in the pools, they only get scrubbed a couple times a year, (it's a huge project to shovel out all the litter) but Daddy keeps the sand pretty deep so our "deposits" are usually in the middle stratum, and not clinging anywhere.
Except for Salem, who has the weirdest peeing position we've EVER seen; she squats with one hind foot on the rim! So she makes clingy corner pees.
Finally, I have a bit of gossip...CC rolls in the pools!
In the fresh litter.
One of his nicknames is "Gritty Kitty"
I hope I've answered all your questions...
...now, where was I?
