The pooper-scooper

When you've got four cats who don't go out at night, going down to the kitchen first thing in the morning is not a pleasant experience.

They've got three litter trays between them, by the back door, and make full use of them, like the good little boys and girls they are. They dig and cover the doo-dah, so enthusiastically in fact that on occasion a little nugget (or two) and half a ton of litter end up five feet away, right in the middle of the kitchen floor. And that's what you see, when you come down to our kitchen first thing in the morning.

So, you pick up the nuggets, sweep the floor, and then YOU get to do the digging, with the pooper-scooper.

The only thing is, with so many cats who will not go and soil the neighbours' garden even during the day, the litter gets expensive. So you sift it with the pooper-scooper and make sure that what's sort of clean goes back to the trays and is used again.

The only thing is, how much you can save is down to the quality of your pooper-scooper. We have experimented with many over the years but not even one has come up to scratch so far.

Not too worry. Max's downstairs, drilling more holes in our latest digging tool, to make it more economical.

Shall I suggest brushing off the little nuggets too? I wonder...


  1. ROFL! Pooper scooper! I love how you refer to cat umm, droppings to nuggets! I enjoyed this, I feel so much better after a day of unfortunate events at work! Threw my whole day off! Now I feel much better :D
