|Notes: (1) I generally use a blend of ScoopAway and Arm & Hammer Super Scoop "clumping" litter. (2) True-life litterbox humor: Person-A is stooped down scooping "clumps" out of box. Person-B walks by and asks Person-A: "A snack?" (3) Cat fact: "The 10,000 tigers now being kept as pets in the United States outnumber the 6,000 in the wild worldwide" (Dr. Bruno Chomel, professor of zoonoses at the University of California, Davis, quotes in Lawrence K. Altman, "Tackling the Animal-to-Human Link in Illness", NYT on the Web, 25Mar06)|

old house, the litterbox was on the far side of the kitchen and dining area on the main floor,
under the table with the microwave on it,
and the cats' food and water dishes were on the opposite side in the kitchen, near the refrigerator, sink and stove:
light, airy, and convenient.
(One of the things my wife hated about the old house was that the cats' litterbox had to be
in the kitchen because the house was so small there was no place else to put it.)
In the new house, the cats' litterbox, and their food and water dishes are down
in a semi-finished space in the basement....
The basement is so dark at night that I plugged in a nite lite so that the cats can see where their
litterbox and dishes are at night.
Do I recall correctly some lines from a Schubert song: "Dunkel ist der Leben...."?|
