In fact, grooming anyone but me to do the dirty task of cleaning the cat box may very well subconsciously be the real reason I wanted kids. So, when Mrs. LIAYF and I saw the new concept Omega Paw Self Cleaning Litter Box the other day on Amazon.com there was no hesitation. We immediately had the same impulse to purchase it.
Although calling it 'Self Cleaning' may be stretching the truth just a bit since you do still have to physically roll the thing and then remove the waste from the sliding container, it is still a HUGE improvement over standard cat boxes.
To briefly sum it up, somebody finally applied the laws of physics to a litter box. You just roll the box onto its side, where a grated container catches the clean stuff, then roll a bit further and the clumps fall neatly into the slide out bin. Very slick. What I can't figure out is that since Einstein was a cat owner, why wasn't this available 50 years ago? He must have had a cat-door.
I nearly tripped making a cat-quick move toward my wallet. But I landed on my feet, with my hands on the keyboard.
The shiny, new, unsoiled cat box arrived a couple days ago. . . .and was promptly made into a fun-filled toddler fort by an excited Lukas.
Mrs. LIAYF and I took a few pictures, and laughed at this for a minute or so. Only until we realized that Lukas absolutely loves to play in his sandbox. . . . . .
I guess we will have to be extra diligent about steering him clear of this play house from now on.
Those aren't SAND TOYS!
