I’m watching a LOT of TV these days. I set up to tape episodes of House, and I’ve probably watched 15 – 20 episodes and have another 20-something on the DVR. Watching TV wasn’t an easy thing for me in the week and a half after surgery, because I kept falling asleep. It took me three tries to watch one particular episode of House because I slept through the entire thing the first try through, and then most of the way in the second attempt.

Yesterday, I watched an episode of Confessions of Animal Hoarders (or whatever it’s called) and was so disturbed by the fact that these people with 80 cats were washing their dirty litter boxes IN THE KITCHEN SINK that I had to pause the show and go upstairs and take a nap. I mean, GAH. LITTER BOXES DO NOT GET WASHED IN THE KITCHEN SINK, PEOPLE. Wash them outside with the hose, or in the utility sink (if you have one), or if you MUST, wash them in the shower and then sanitize the shower.

I myself, actually, do not wash the litter boxes in any of those places. I prefer to spray down empty litter boxes with my favorite cleaning spray, then once they’re scrubbed cleaned I finish them with the spray bottle of 50/50 white vinegar and water. When they’re completely dry, I wipe down the lower third of the litter boxes with olive oil, let that soak in and dry, and then refill them with clean litter.

(I’m currently using 50% Precious Cat and 50% Fresh Step. The Precious Cat is good litter (and as dust-free as any I’ve seen), but doesn’t quite do the job of keeping down the smell that I’d hope for.)

The olive oil helps keep clumps from sticking to the litter box. If you were wondering.

Well. Wasn’t THAT fascinating?

Have I ever mentioned that I can hardly stand how gorgeous Corbie is?

SO gorgeous. He knows it, too.

Corbie ear floof.

Kara, enjoying the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had lately (NOT complaining!)

Miz Poo, doing the same.

  1. He is a gorgeous cat, of course! And he knows you appreciate that, which is why he wanted to come home to stay with you.
    It’s SO nice to find 2 posts in a row!!
    thank you.

  2. What? You think Corbie’s GORGEOUS? Never heard such a thing! Next you’ll be saying Alice is a daddy’s girl…

  3. It’s so good to see two posts in a row — surely it means you are healing up a storm! I’m glad, and I’m sure the kitties are also!

  4. Glad you’re on the mend! *sigh* I, too am just smitten with Corbie. Hmmmmm…. we need a boy cat around here. The casa has been an estrogen sea for way too long… 😉
