lol, yeah, i understood. but it just seemed funny.

we have very fussy cats and use scoopable litter, so we don't have much of a choice but to have whomever watches our pets ( 2 cats, 2 parrots, 4 large goldfish, a turtle, and a betta fish. why is it beta? i've yet to figure it out...) to scoop the poop at least every other day.

or they crap in your favourite shoes.

it would be like forcing humans to use an overflowing latrine.

I have a friend who convinces her cats to use the bath tub if the box is too full. I don't know how she does it.

So far in the 7 months we've had Salem, she thankfully hasn't gone anywhere but the litter box once she found it. We used the Kitty Attract litter and she only had one "accident" the first day. We cleaned it up really good and used Odo-ban on it and she never went back there.

We never expected to have a cat since DH was allergic and so was my oldest son. She was born to a stray mama in our backyard and was abandoned. Mama took the other kitties but left her. We brought her in and fell in love. We didn't expect to keep her because of the allergy issues. For some reason, DH doesn't have a problem with Salem. The son takes a Benadryl before coming over and that controls his sneezing.

The funny thing about pet allergies--one can be allergic to some dogs, but not all dogs, ditto for cats. I am allergic to some cats (particularly if the cat has any Siamese in it), but not all cats. I'm allergic to German Shepherds and Dalmatians, but those are the only two breeds that bother me. A friend's husband is allergic to Saint Bernards, but not Newfoundlands and not cats.

One of our friends had 2 cats and 2 dogs. He would actually get wheezy at their house! We had a cat when I was dating him (back in the late 70's) and he had problems then too. I'm glad that he doesn't have a reaction because I would have been sad to take her to the animal shelter! She's not a cuddle cat but she certainly won us over anyway!

LOL! I have visions of my nephew sitting with the cat on his lap and a bottle of Benadryl in his hand. He would not leave the cats alone, no matter how bad his breathing got.

Sorry Bucky but it took me too long to get him trained to just send him off to the shelter now!

Oh, we are way too much alike. How many others out there can recognize, much less sing, that song!

I'm a person who vividly dreams, and now I'm going to dream of cats in sailor suits cleaning litter boxes.
