Happy new year!
Happy new year!
FYI. It’s pretty good.
I had a birthday. I am seven. Time flies when you’re peeing on things!
I got a new stuffed catnip mouse, some dried catnip stalks and buds and a bunch of feathers and other toys.
Here are my pictures with Molly (dilute calico) and Emma (poonchy smoked tuxedo).
I’m super excited for you to see my official picture. My ginger furs were collected with a Furminator brush. They make a good mustache, right?
You can see our other cat friends here.
Remember: comb your cats and visit the vet at least 1x year for a check up. And celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day by giving your kitties some extra love and attention, yo!
National Hairball Awareness Day is almost here.
It’s the day when we celebrate fur, raise money and awareness for rescue animals, and provide helpful tips to keep everyone hairball-free!
Come back and see me on April 26th, yo!
Hey, dudes. How have you been? What have you been doing?
This is what I’m up to:
It’s a Kong Cat Wobbler and I love it.
Extra cod, please!
Nice to see you guys, by the way. Happy Spring!
Dudes, it’s finally here. Today is National Hairball Awareness Day — the reason why I made my #teamscrubby pictures!
Check out this important information on how to prevent hairballs.
And don’t forget to check out all the awesome furminated creatures on the Furminator Facebook page!
My mom is trying to win money for SPCA of Wake County’s AniMeals program.
What is AniMeals?
This is a community outreach program that removes the logistical and financial burden of providing a nutritious meal for the beloved pets of senior citizens in need. The SPCA has heard of many situations in which this segment of the community will eat half their meal, and give the other half to their pets. This is both unhealthy for the people and their pets.
Did you hear that? Some of your wonderful Nanas and Papas have NO MONEY and LIMITED RESOURCES but still give half of their meals to their cats and dogs.
What? This has to stop. We have to help the seniors in our communities. And animals will help your Nana and Papa live longer.
But it’s Easter and Passover. Time for a change. The boxes are getting old. Mom wanted to swap out the litter boxes without freaking me out. Here’s how she did it.
Step 1 — don’t change too much.
We like our boxes to smell like us — but not too stinky. So mom scooped out the poops and pee clumps and threw away the old boxes.
She saved the old litter for the new boxes. I need a familiar smell to remind me that the box is mine. Brand new litter can come a different day. Besides, clumping litter helps to keep things relatively clean.
Step 2 — take the opportunity to vacuum like crazy.
We have two litter box “stations” in our unfinished basement. Two boxes at each station. Fancy, right? That’s how we roll, dog. Those litter box stations can be messy. New boxes give us an opportunity for a fresh start. Mom vacuumed the entire basement — as she does every weekend — but this time she took out our litter box rugs and vacuumed them outside.
As dad says — she cray.
And yes that is a ‘breast cancer awareness Dyson‘ that my daddio found on Amazon clearance back in 2008. It’s our 100% dedicated basement vacuum. It works okay, not great. Yes, it’s pinkwashing. Yes, the price was right.
Step 3 — time to replace air filters or anything else that helps to control litter box dust.
We use a Honeywell filter. Works pretty good for the basement.
The key with using an air filters? Keep it pretty far away from the litter box area. It’s about managing dust — not scaring the bejeezus outta the cats, yo.
Step 4 — look good while changing litter boxes.
You gotta have a look, people. Mom has these sexy shoes. She calls them her basement shoes.
For the record, they are not Crocs — although are twice as expensive and just about as ugly. Look at those sexy unshaven tree trunks. Go moms!
They are safety shoes with enforced toes and steel and whatnot. For realsies. She doesn’t mess around with the basement. Safety first, dudes!
Hope this blog post was helpful when you swap out your litter boxes. Wash your litter boxes weekly and get new ones every six months to keep things clean.
