Litter box solution!

I was having trouble with my cat not squatting when she pees. It would hit the back of the litter box, drip down the lid and leak into the bathtub. I was always smelling urine and having to clean the bathtub. This storage container turned into a litter box has solved that problem! It is so tall that when it drips there isn't any place for it to leak out of. We both love it!

Black cat, silly myth.

I have a lovely, almost all black, Tortie cat and we all love her so much. Some black cats are overlooked at shelters because of silly myths, especially in October. Cats should be adopted because of their personality, not their colorings.

Litter box issues with my cat

My cat has a litter box similar to this one. She always pees in the back of the box and it always leaks out and into the bath tub, that holds the litter box. I don't know if she is not squatting to pee? With the overhang of the lid, it just escapes. It has been so frustrating for me to have to clean up so often. Can anyone else relate? I might have to look into a different type of box. Any suggestions?

Read Your Cat's Eyes


Have you ever looked closely at a cat’s eye? Cat’s pupils are usually vertical. If you ever see a cat with round pupils, WATCH OUT! That means your cat is frisky and may pounce, scratch, or bite. The cat may want to play at these times and if your cat has it’s front claws, you have to be quick. The best toys are catnip toys and cat strings. Dilated pupils can also be a sign of aggression, fear, excited to be fed, and excited to see another cat or human friend.

Starring at the cat’s eyes can make the cat feel threatened and uncomfortable. Two cats will out stare each other to resolve a conflict. If you know of a person who doesn’t like cats, they may say that cats like them. The reason for this is that the person afraid of cats will not usually look at the cat in the eyes. The cat will feel comfortable around this person and come over to greet them.

A relaxed cat will yawn and often have a sleepy eyed look. If you ever get a change to look at a cat’s eyes from the side it’s amazingly beautiful.  They can see you from the side too! They have great peripheral vision.
