HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!
I had a really, really good day this week. Mommy only caught me prowling on her nail station once, and Poppy only got cross with me once for not getting out of his chair when he told me to.
It got cold, so Poppy built a fire in the fireplace. Tipper gets too hot, so I had the warm all to myself.
But the best thing is, Mommy got us some new litter! We love it when Mommy cleans out the litter box every night (Poppy never does), and we love it when she puts new litter in. But this was NEW new litter! She says she bought it from Chewy.com, and it’s called Dr. Elsey’s Multi-Cat Unscented Clumping Clay Cat Litter. She said to tell you she isn’t getting paid to lie and just say I said this. She just bought it and we turned out to love it.
We have the best Mommy! We have the best Poppy, too, but Mommy cleans the box.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: What makes you happy?

I hope you have more good days, this week Cjickie. The mom around here cleans the box but I’ve been Schlepping the litter from the store. So I get credit too.

We tag-team it: I buy it, fill the boxes, and scoop the “product” into buckets, and Charlie dumps the filled buckets into a sinkhole. I’ll take that division of labor!

Works for me.

Chickie and Tipper are very lucky to be the head cats at your house.

They seem to take their responsibilities to keep us entertained very seriously. 😀

Moo has catbox duty until she graduates. All the children have taken turns with catbox duty since 2002. It makes up for all the things they don’t do with their dog(s), like bathe and brush and play and walk and feed her and keep water in her bloody buggery bowl. But whatever. So nice kitties like the new litter — I’ll check it out, 20 lbs for 12.99 is good.

That’s a good plan. Cleaning water bowls — ugh! I’d rather clean the litter box than one of those slobbery bowls. But I have to do both, with the nest empty and all. shudders

I’ll be right there with you in a few years 😉 I use an SOS pad on the bowls, do em all up at once. But I tell ya, I got an old Pyrex bowl for pet water in our en suite and I have to let vinegar sit in that thing. So much mineral in the water!
