I changed the cat litter yesterday and used a new to us litter. We aren’t partial to one brand over another, as long as it’s clumping and it’s on sale, we buy it. I didn’t think anything about it when I went into our cat litter room to change out the litter.
I immediately noticed that the new bag of unopened litter didn’t seem to have a resealable top. Annoyed, I grabbed a pair of scissors that I vowed never to use again for food and set about opening the bag.
The scissors broke. Apparently this brand of litter wants to make it so difficult to open the bag that people mistake it for a bag of plutonium and think long and hard before they purchase it.
Undeterred I took one side of the broken scissors and cut a slit in the end of the bag and broke it open. I scooped out each of the boxes and replaced the litter with clean. I then realized I wasn’t able to close the bag with anything, so I just propped it up against the wall closest to the entrance and went to bed.
This would prove to be a bad life choice.
I woke up late today and as I came into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, I happened to glance into the cat litter room…..and realized the error of my ways. The open bag of litter I had propped up against the wall nearest the entrance of the litter box room, was now on its side on the floor, litter spilling out over the entrance to the room.
Apparently our furry Frick and Frack conspired together to knock over the bag of litter in the night whilst we slept. Not only had they knocked over the bag, but when it spilled out, they decided to um, “test-drive it” so to speak. To the point that some “out put” had landed IN. THE. BAG.
Apparently we are raising over-achievers. I guess I should be proud. Or something.
So to sum up, if your life-long dream is to make cat litter, please make sure it comes in a resealable container. Especially if you have your own furry Frick and Frack.
