True story hours ago. I was at the local Walmart. I have been talking lately on The Crowd about how our one cat isn’t using her box. Needless to say, it’s a mess horrendous. We are smart, we had to come up with a solution and find out why!
I am the queen of video and set up my camera aiming on the box to see what is going on. We have a standard size cat box. Dimitri is now 15 years ago. She’s one big pussy cat. She’s like a giant trying to get into Herbie the Love Bug! She’s crouched up but is way too big for the box.
The camera revealed our Dimitri is jamming herself into the box but her ass his hanging out of the side. She tries to bury it but cannot find it. That’s because it’s not in the box. Let’s face it, if slow moving bowel movements are missing, projectile diarrhea has no hope to stay in the box. Gross I know… just telling it the way it is!
So I called around looking for a large kitty box but it seems it’s either really special order or not available. So what are we to do? Are we to leave the cat and let her wreck the house or come up with a new solution. Euthanasia isn’t an option as it’s not her fault and she still is cuddly and etc.
We came up with the idea of finding a wide load and extra long storage box. There’s no way the cat can miss now!
Occasionally, people recognized me as Mikey at Walmart. A fan stops me. Mikey, you must have a lot of yarn to store. I looked at her strangely and asked her what she is talking about? The yarn tote as she points to my bin. OMG, I laughed and I said honey, this isn’t a yarn tote! This is the cat’s new litter box.
It never occurred me that when people see me with totes they assume I am hoarding more yarn. haha. I thought this was a raw moment and wanted to share that with you!
