Arrival Story:
Mommy was taking photos of the puppies at the Merced County Animal Shelter, trying to back up to get a better photo, and I stuck my paw out and touched her... Then Mommy had to open the tiny cage and took me out. I put my little paws on either side of her neck and hugged her and purred my prettiest!

I was a bit of a wild child when mommy brought me home. I bit everyone and everything (nothing like I was at the shelter), and began destroying all the furniture and all I could by chewing it! Well, I had to teach them who was in charge. I stopped trying to bite, and Mommy taught me to be the love cat she adopted. Wanna know how? Just ask Mommy!

Litter Genie

I was so excited when I received my Litter Genie in the mail! It was like an early Christmas present! The mail carrier drove into my driveway and honked for me to come out and get my package.
It was a large box, but very light. I opened it up and inside was some packing and the Litter Genie nestled in the packing.
But I was sad to see there were no instructions included. Maybe cat people are supposed to be smarter than dog people? I looked all over the Genie for instructions. Nothing.
I see some small drawings of how it was supposed to work, but they were far from explicit.
I could tell I was supposed to pull off a black plastic strip from the “bag” section, so I did. But it didn’t say how you were supposed to get the bags out? It would have been helpful for some kind of color coded starter strip to the bags. I ended up pulling a double thick section, because I thought they were supposed to be that thick. (See, I’ve never used one, nor seen one.)
It was awkward once I got it all put together. Wally is a big tom-cat (though fixed) and makes big potties. Just one was far too big to go down the hole. And he usually pees in the same spot more than once. Maybe I’m not a great kitty mom. I don’t clean the box every time each one of the 3 cats pee. Sorry, kitties.

So, I’m trying to force this huge chunk of potty down the shoot, and it isn’t wanting to go. I’m shaking the entire Genie (maybe if I rub it, it’ll vanish?) but it won’t go down. I start “cutting” the pee chunks of litter in half. Yes, it works, but ick.

I kept at this for the first 3 days. The Genie was already full. Yes, I have 3 very box-active cats.

No worries, I’ll just change the bag thingy! Yup! That was easy! And when I pulled to replace the bag, the extra layer was gone! Much easier! Now the pee will go down the shoot easier. Still have problems with the size of the chunks, but I can’t imagine wanting something that big in my house.

It is also a little difficult to find a place to put it. If it were just about 4 inches shorter, it would be the same height as the litter boxes, and I could put it next to them. As it is, I have to leave it out in the room. Not exactly pretty, but I have had several questions as to what it is and if I am using “Depends” now.

Overall, it is a great product if you have small cats, or one cat, or best use, kittens. Large cats? Toms with big bladders? Not so much… But I do appreciate it!

I used to just use the bags that our newspaper came in every day. Recycled, so to speak. Boy were those bags FULL!!! Ekkk!


How Mommy trained me to be a love cat!

Well, as I wrote in my bio, I wasn't a love kitty when I came to live with Mommy and Daddy and the stupid dogs.

Sooooo, smarty-pants Mommy started feeding me on the garden window in the kitchen, just past the sink. I knew when I heard the sound of the kibbles dropping, FOOD!

But Mommy was smart. She didn't fill my bowl. Oh, no. She only gave me about 10 to 15 kibbles, and let me eat them. Well, I soon learned Mommy was the keeper of the food, so I would start begging. Soon, I started climbing on Mommy... and that would make her go to the cabinet and get out the magic kibble box.

The more I loved on Mommy, the more she gave me food. But only 10 to 15 at a time. Took lots of loving to get my tummy filled, but it was worth it. Now Mommy doesn't ever fill my bowl, but if I work for my food (give love and kisses and sweet cuddles) I can get about as much as a bowlfull each day.

So, that is how a human trained a cat.

oh, p.s.

Beware. They start trying to train you to do other things too! Now I am jumping from the counter onto Mommy's tummy, if she leans back and pats it for me to land on!

BE CAREFUL of smart humans!
