CATS AND CONVERSATION

“If cats could talk they wouldn’t.”  Nan Porter

The other morning I got together with a friend for breakfast.  We do this about twice a year.  We catch up on books we’re reading, grandchildren, the vicissitudes of life, and cat litter.

Seems we have an outdoor cat that’s adopted us (yes, I’ve been feeding her) and I’m worried about her comfort this winter.  Bringing her into our home wouldn’t work as we already have two cats who probably wouldn’t tolerate the addition.  Cats sometimes show their dissatisfaction for an intruder by “marking” the house as their territory.  Let’s not go there.

One solution I’ve come up with is to outfit my art studio, a separate building behind our house, with the accouterments that a cat might need and love.  However, I wonder if an outdoor cat would love spending nights alone and confined, even if it means survival.  I’ll have to talk to the vet about that.

But that’s not where our breakfast conversations went.  My friend suggested that I set up the litter box with the world’s best cat litter.  “What’s it called,” I asked.  “It’s called World’s Best Cat Litter,” he said.  Duh!

I’ll bite.  What makes it the best?

First of all, the litter isn’t made of clay or any other material that’s likely to leave dust.  It’s made of corn.  And best of all, it’s flushable!  Did you hear that.  No more setting 40 pound bags of trash out to the curb that are filled with cat droppings.  Life is good.

Seems you simply throw the scoopings into the commode and let them sit there for about 5 minutes.  Then flush.

Those of you who don’t own cats are probably feeling left out.  I can help.  I have this loving outdoor cat looking for a good home.  Just saying.
