    For animal lovers

    You're right! I'll be damned. I haven't bothered with amazon.ca (we can't order from the dot-com) for ages because there was so little selection. Thanks.

    It hasn't been a problem for us. We've lived here for 15 years now and haven't had a problem yet. I use Septic Tank treatment every 3 months, (just drop in the bowl and flush) and I'm smart about what we flush. The benefits of living here far outweigh the very small inconveniences. That fact is driven home every time I hear or read of the horrible neighbors some people have to deal with. My closest neighbor is 1.5 miles away.

    Love the kitty smilies...

    I used to have two cats... and had two litter boxes. They would um... poop in one and pee in the other. And if one was doing "their business" in the one... the other would wait outside the box. They obviously had rules...

    Good for them! My sons cats don't do that, they use both boxes to do both.

    When it was Mona & Joey, they both shared the same box. He has his side, Mona had hers, isn't that funny. Rules I guess.

    I love how they work out things among/between themselves and us, their staff, seldom have to get involved.

    It's like, I have a 'screamer'...any reason will do....but I also know that there is nothing wrong....just the usual drama from her. I used to rise to the occasion, until I "got it". Just being a tiny bit chased will set her off. She's on her own, and she's FINE!

    I think my cats suffered from being clean freaks. Before they would get out of the box.. they would cover their mess. But, they would do it for a few minutes. Cover it... then cover it again... and if that wasn't enough.. they would cover it AGAIN! Then they would get out of the box. BUT if that wasn't enough.. the other cat would get in there and start the process all over again. There would be a HUGE pile of litter in one corner of the box... and nothing any where else.

    Then... the other neat freak would have to go to work.. That being ME. I would clean out the mess... then fix the litter nice and neat. I could never do this process alone. They would both follow me to the boxes and make sure I was doing it right.

    I MISS MY KITTIES!!!!!!
