Karma Kiss GC Giveaway – Word of the Day
As I’ve mentioned before, I hate cleaning the litter box. It is one of the chores that I loathe more than anything. Why do I hate that dreaded household chore so much? First off, it reaks every time one of my three cats uses it. I don’t know if it’s the litter or if it’s because my cat’s urine and feces are beyond bearable, but it’s got to go. My Siamese cat, Lucy, has trouble going to the litter box, but when she does go, the fumes from her business travel their way upstairs and into our bedrooms.
Another reason why I hate litter boxes is that there’s more than one. We have three litter boxes – one for each cat. No, they do not know which one is their’s. They just use the first available (and cleanest) litter box. Sometimes the youngest female will use all three just so the others will have to wait til I clean it next to “go potty”.
Third, the litter we currently use doesn’t clump very well. The feces and urine fall apart whenever I attempt to scoop it out of the tray, so there’s always little pieces floating around that I’m unable to get unless I want to put on a pair of gloves and fetch it with my hands. Sorry, that’s NOT happening.
Lastly, the containers of litter are SO heavy. Y’all, I’m 5’0″. I cannot pick up those large litter containers into my cart and then into my car. I’m not that strong. 🙁
I recently discovered Tidy Cats Lightweight 24/7 Performance Litter that not only strongly clumps, but also is lightweight and covers up that wretched, foul odor that more often than not surrounds the litter box. What more can you ask for?
