Life is my litterbox ... Grab the SCOOP!

If the box is rockin', don't bother knockin'!

Mom finally listened to me! I had been begging her to replace our two aging jumbo-sized Booda covered litter boxes with something more modern and hygenic. PetSmart sent Mom an email advertising some self-cleaning litter boxes from Omega Paw ... and Mom bought us two of them! The large-sized ones!! I cannot wait for them to arrive, but Mom cheaped out on the shipping. I wanted them tomorrow or the next day at the very latest. Mom selected "value shipping" so they'll be here before Hallowe'en ... I hope. Mom calls "shipping" SNAIL MAIL, but she's always excited to see the sexy guy in the tight brown shorts who drives the brown panel truck with the perky "beep, beep" when he arrives.

Does anyone else out there in the blog-o-verse use these cat box beauties? I've only ever used the Booda ones (except when I was an outside cat and had to use the flower beds ... Eeewwww!). I'm excited as they'll be faster and easier to clean. Mom can give them a quick rocking so I won't have to follow Cocoa Puff or Pumpkin into stench-ville (those two have a thing about not covering up what they've deposited) ... and, can you say "flatulating buttheads"????

I figure that Mom will do less throwing up in the middle of cleaning the boxes. Our litter will last longer and she can keep the depth at about three or four inches so my paws won't get wet/soiled. I just hope that the 9" diameter doorway is wide enough for Cocoa Puff's caboose. I may just have to get out my measuring tape and take the dimensions of Cocoa's business end. I hope that he doesn't think that I have a crush on him or something. Eeewwwww!

Anyway, I'd love some feedback on the new litter boxes ... If you have one of these and you LOVE it, please let me know in the comments ... I hope that they are as wonderful as I think they are. I looked for "reviews" on the PetSmart site, but no one had commented with a "yea or nay" ... I hope that Mom didn't make a wasteful purchase (pun intended).

'Til next post!

Oh, I forgot ... That horrible humidity is back! I wish that someone from Miami would take the darn stuff back with them! Humidity frizzes out my fur!

Magoo, Smudge, Bella & Dolce said...

We had those exact same litter boxes for our cats. We did, however, have to leave the lid off. Magoo got a little too big for the box. Our Vet also said that some cats do not like covered litter boxes because it can trap the smell. If you think it smells nasty to you, imagine what it is like for a cats whose sense of smell is ten thousand times more acute.

I didn't know you wuz in Florida too. I is all the way up here in northern Florida. Wow we is neigh-burs.

one of us said...

Mom would like to get one of those for us, but Merlin is way to big to fit in one. *sigh* ~Shadow

DaisyMae Maus said...

No ... I don't live in Florida. I live in sunny San Diego. We don't tend to get the horrible humidity that Floridians get, but since we have so many transplanted military families with Miami-Dade County on their license plates, I figure that they must have brought this humidity with them. I don't like sweaty fur. I think that they should send the horrible humidity back! San Diego is supposed to be "dry-er" heat.

My Food Lady sez that the man in the brown shorts is much kyooter than the man in the bloo shorts hoo brings us envelopes evry day.

Rascal said...

Wow, the delux model! Hmm, now that We are a 2 Cat household maybe We should get a couple of those too. Daisy Mae, please give us a full product review as soon as possible.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Sure, Rascal! As soon as Mr. Sexy-Shorts brings us our boxes, I'll try 'em out and give a full critique. PetSmart has 'em on sale, so the sooner mine get here, the better. I hope that they cut down on the stench. The Booda boxes with the locking lids and "air filters" don't quite cut the crap, if you get my drift.
