It certainly is SB, it makes you feel so good once all done

Drinking some Cayenne Tea to get rid of this terrible headache. Seems my new glasses need adjusting, they're pressing on my temples.
Maybe the spicy tea will warm me enough to find the courage to go and bath lol!
8 am and still in my PJ's!

I know how much you enjoy ironing. If I were your neighbor I would do it all for you so you could sit in your recliner with a cup of coffee all day. I know, I am mean. Taking away your ironing!

Really? What do you hate about it?

I really prefer it to the stuff I had to completely change every 3-4 days. It is also better at keeping down odour.

I am sitting here wondering about SB and how she is doing. I woudn't be surprised if we didn't hear from her until tomorrow.

It's a finer grit, which tends to find its way out of the litter box more. And the clumps stick like glue to the plastic, making the box harder to clean when it needs it.
I've found that putting a much smaller amount of regular litter into the box and emptying every other day (for one cat) works better for me.

Okay, that makes sense. It's true, there is more grit on the floor with the clumping stuff. I find that if I put a lot (about twice as much as they recommend) of litter in the box, there is less problem with it sticking to the box.

OK, this might sound nuts, but it works. We use a baby bathtub and fill it quite full of litter. That eliminates the sticking issue. The cats like it better because it feels more private, and they can't kick the litter over the edge. I found that a little hunk of carpet around the edge of the box for them to wipe their feet on helps too. I know, I know, cats don't wipe their feet. Still works though.
