Tattletale Tuesday - The Litter Monster

Busted! A few weeks ago, Mommy bought us a new automated self-cleaning litter box. She knew we would resist any change and wanted the transition to go smoothly, so she removed only two of our three old litter boxes. The one remaining box got dirty very quickly, so Mommy hoped we would use the new litter monster as a cleaner alternative. Well, inmate #056195243-5 pictured above had a brilliant plan of his own. The defendant "allegedly" expressed his displeasure of the new litter box situation by kicking a big pile of litter out of our old box into a giant pile on the floor. Mommy noticed it in the morning, but didn't have time to sweep it up before she left for work. When she returned home, she went to clean the old litter box and saw Ambrose squatting on the big pile of litter outside the box with a look of great concentration on his face. Yep, the little genius was relieving himself right on the pile of litter on the floor. After cleaning up the giant clump of litter that was stuck to the floor, Mommy was very close to giving us back all of our old litter boxes, but decided to give it a couple more days. On the next day, she was very pleased to see no messes outside the old litter box...until she went into the bathroom and found a little "gift" for her in the bathtub. Ewwwww, pretty gross. Mommy was definitely ready to surrender then, so she gave us back all of our old litter boxes. She realized that she had been very naive to think we would use a noisy, moving, litter monster. We won! We won! We won! Victory is sweet,... but we couldn't pass up this perfect opportunity to mess with Mommy's head, so guess what we did next? Yep, we started using the new self-cleaning litter monster. Mommy is very happy about that, but is waaaaay too afraid to take away any of our old litter boxes again for quite a while. Inmate #056195243-5 has received a full pardon in exchange for promising to never use the bathtub as a litter box ever, ever, ever again.

That's the very reason Mom has never bought one of those automatic litter boxes for me!

Those automatic litter boxes are pretty awesome, no? What kind did you get? We like the ScoopFree box (www.scoopfree.com) - but are curious to see what you got and how your experiences progress! Best of luck!

Hahahaha! Ambrose, that is genius!

From the mum:
I wanted to say thankyou for your nice comment about Suey. I think she is the prettiest little kitty in the world, but know a lot of people don't see it, especially next to Fui's handsomeness. One person even said she looked 'manky'! I think torties are very special looking because they are so individual and special. So it was lovely to see that someone else shares my enthusiasm:)

ha ha ha! That made Momma laugh! She says we're good to share one litter box but it's a big one...actually a Rubbermaid storage box! Lotsa room for diggin'. But I don't think we'd like a litter monster.....we'd probably pee on the bed or something in protest.

Eric and Flynn said...

Haha! That is funny. We wouldn't use a litterbox that made a noise. We would probably whap it though.

Ha! GOOD JOB!!!

(clapclapclapclapclapclap) Good work, everyone! That'll teach her.

We cats don't like changes in our homes, unless we're the ones making them!

Very funny you guys. You mommy must be quite patient. Please let us know how you are doing with the new box. It sounds like such a good idea.
