I just finished the cat owner’s ritual of changing the cat litter. What is it about changing the litter that makes kitties have to go right then? Every time I drag the fresh bag of Jonny Cat over to his bright orange loo, all of a sudden I’m the Most Interesting Thing Happening. As I throw out the old and pour in the new, Siegfried is absolutely fascinated; he’ll hover over to the side with his eyes wide open, totally entranced. It’s like the cat version of toilet humour.
He usually can’t even wait for me to finish before he hops into his commode and gets right to it. And it doesn’t matter if he just went five minutes ago; when that litter’s fresh, he’s gotta use it!!!
Incidentally, I use the Jonny Cat brand because A) it’s one of the only non-clumping “old-school” brands and B) (the real reason) the kitty in their logo is a complete doppelganger for Siegfried. Separated at birth?!?
