My dad's family was the first in their area to have a TV, (had to go all the way to Boston fro Maine to get it) they would invite friends and neighbors over to watch. Everyone would get all dressed up for the occasion! My dad remembered laying on the floor totally mesmerized by the test pattern.

Thank you cat litter companies for deciding that every litter formula has to be "extreme odor control" or "multi-cat odor control". In fact, my little furball is so impressed with how clean it smells that he refuses to sully it and is instead is using our carpet. At this rate, by the time we're done steam cleaning our carpets a dozen times so we have a shot at getting our deposit back when we move, we'll have spent our deposit and then some on multiple steam cleanings. So thank you, our cat litter smells nice and clean and our carpet smells like a *&+%(#@ cat box.

(((Hugs)))

It's such a PITA when kitties decide to pee in the wrong place. When I had two, they used to have peeing contests in the hall.

Oh no, PAG! DH works for a company that produces The World's Best cat litter brand, with no odor control or anything else, all natural, made from corn. You can find coupons and rebates on line if you Google it, even get a free bag. It might be worth a try. You can find it at Petco and on Amazon, other places too.

It was one of things I hated about black flies, when I lived in the country. Right now I'm just giggling about how absurd it is.

p.a.g. when our stupid cat, only one in the house, decided to not use any one of the FOUR litter pans we had for her I took her to the vet. She had a UTI. Probably not your cat's problem, but at the same time the vet recommended "Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract" litter. Not cheap (maybe $15-18 for 40#??) but worth every penny. I blend it half-and-half with unscented litter now and our kitty still is OK with it. No urine accidents since I started using it years ago, but on occasion she doesn't quite make it to the pan for solids. She's probably getting a little old (shelter cat, so they weren't really sure how old she was when we adopted her). Also, if you want to get the smell out of anything I can also highly endorse "Nature's Miracle" Urine Destroyer. They have a formula specifically for cats. It works. Good luck...and don't kill kitty, OK?
