Corn, Poop and a Classic Cardigan

So here's what I'm dealing with right now: I had to replace the foster kittens' litterbox with a larger one (because they were making WAY too many paw popsicles, stumbling all over themselves) and while I was at it, I decided to (just a little while ago) replace their unscented, non-clumping clay litter (infant kittens should not be exposed to the chemicals in scented, clumping clay litter) with a NEW, all-natural litter* made from cedar, pine and corn

(Does anyone else see the irony in corn litter?) hee hee

This stuff looks and feels like sawdust, mixed with ground tree nut shells and grass seed. [scratches head] I'm not sure this was a good idea. Heaven help my bathroom tonight if this doesn't work out. 

Yep, these are my issues. ;-)


And, by the way, there is no way I'm ending this post right here (if I did, I'd have to insert a gross picture of chocolate corn pudding, or something), so instead, I'm going to post a blog classic having to do with dogs, cats and a Hershey streak simple misunderstanding.

When his person gave the command, "Go to your mat," Dewi heard, "Sit on a cat."

Dewi: "This is awkward."

Dewi: "I think that might've left a skid mark."

Dewi is an opportunist.

You're welcome. :)

*I'm keeping the brand of cat litter to myself until the verdict comes in (or covers my bathroom floor). 


  1. We have tried the wheat, which smelled like bread with cat pee mixed in. . blech and the corn, which smelled sweet with cat pee mixed in - I'll be interested to see what you think!!

    Dewi is so funny :)

  2. hmmmm...sounds interesting...I actually am litter boxed trained (for long days of peeps skiing)...we use dog litter from PETCO...but I am guessing no matter what litter you will still smell like what goes in it. BOL

    good luck!

  3. And people have the nerve to say picking up dog poop is gross. :)

  4. Hi Y'all,

    No cats here! But oh BOL at Dewi sittin' on the kitty!

    Just wanted to stop to see how your week is going. Hope it's great! Wishin' y'all a great and a wonderful summer! Stay cool!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. I did not know about kitty litter!
    Aaand... Dewi sure understands... what he wants to understand!
    I loved the pictures!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Better, is go down to a feed store and pick up chicken crumbles. As long as you make sure to get the un-medicated stuff (some of it is sold with antibiotics and crud mixed in for young chicks), it is just corn. And, it clumps naturally, is safe for flushing, and is the best odor-control litter ever. And bonus, it is about the cheapest litter you can get.
