Rascal is on a roll today.
He jumped up on the table, which he knows he shouldn’t do, and went skidding across, taking the table cloth and place mats with him! Later he jumped up on my dresser landing on a stack of construction paper cards my daughter had made me. Again he skidded and fell off the dresser, sending the cards flying in all directions. He fell asleep on a window ledge and just about fell off, but scared himself awake and somehow managed to twist his body and hang on.
Here I am trying to get some things done today and there is this clown cat making me laugh and clean up after him in every room! It certainly is entertaining to have cats. Rocco can be just as funny, but he was napping on my bed most of the day. He left all the mischief and just plain clumsiness to his brother.
Rascal’s pride is not too terribly hurt as he’s sleeping on my lap; causing my legs to go to sleep. There is barely room between my legs and my desktop, so I’m sitting way back from my computer to allow him to sit here on my lap. I really shouldn’t be typing all hunched over like this to reach my keyboard, but I love my kitty and he just looks too comfortable to move. Plus he’s keeping me warm and it’s a cold evening. At least I get to use my chair at all today. It usually looks like this:
Caring for our cats often comes before our own comfort, am I right?
At least, if we are good pet owners who really love our pets and care for them properly.
I put up with a lot from my boys:
- broken ornaments
- scattered papers
- meows for breakfast before day break
- paws in my water glass
- loss of blood flow to my legs (as in my current predicament)
- purring on my head when I’m trying to sleep
- and sharp claw kneeding into me
- even trouble breathing and itchy eyes (I’m allergic)
Some may think I shouldn’t mention all these things. That I should portray cats always in a good light because they are good pets just like dogs and they have a stigma that needs to be shed. This isn’t about cats vs dogs or cats being a nuisance or aloof. They are a nuisance and aloof. When they want to be. But, they are my nuisances and I love them and will continue to do what is best for them regardless of the crap they put me through. Their attitude and antics are what I love most about cats. If you don’t like these things, maybe you are solely a dog person or not an animal person at all (though why in the heck are you reading this?) and you shouldn’t get a cat. They are not for everyone and that’s okay.
There is one more obnoxious thing we cat people have to deal with and that is The Litter Box.
My cats can clear a room quick, using the litter box. They don’t seem to believe in covering their business and even though I feed them natural cat foods that are healthy, all I can say is WOW. I don’t know if they are dying inside or what, but they make my eyes water! Their litter box is in my bathroom and one of them always seems to need to use it as soon as I am in there. I come out gasping for breath and my eyes watering like crazy!
I recently did find a really good natural cat litter that I love, but my local stores do not carry it so I have to remember to order it. I’d rather just pick up what I need while out grocery shopping and not have to order things and wait for them to arrive. So, when I last needed a new bag of cat litter I just went to find something locally. But, it couldn’t be just any ol’ litter. I want the best cat litter for my fur babies.

I still wanted natural cat litter that was low on dust and it had to be a clumping litter, I’ve become quite particular, so I chose…
How can you go wrong with a name like that?
I took a chance on it and brought it home. It was quite different from what I had been providing the kitties with, but they didn’t mind. It’s made from naturally absorbent corn, is sustainable, and it is flushable cat litter; even septic safe. I never even heard of anyone flushing their litter. I’m intrigued! Why does one do this? Seems like a waste of water when you can just toss it in the trash. (please comment)
This is also practically dust free cat litter, which is very important to me. I don’t like having to hold my breath while changing the litter box to avoid aggravating my asthma, so I need as low dust as possible. And knowing the cats don’t have to breathe it in, either, is comforting.

Did I like it?
I love it for all the aforementioned reasons, it’s eco-friendly cat litter that is not harmful to people, planet, or pets. My cats seemed to use it just fine. It’s very absorbent and clumped nicely, so it was easy to clean the box and did not waste a bunch of litter. If you’ve dealt with non-clumping litter you know you have to dump the whole thing and start over if you want to get it clean. This way, you don’t use so much so quickly and when a bag of litter lasts longer, so does your money; bonus! It didn’t cover the odor as much as I had hoped, however, as I said, my cats are too darn lazy to cover their own mess. Honestly, I keep the scoop right next to the box so I can cover it for them when they’re done when I am in the room.
