B - :) Another reason to keep your shop clean....

My 13 year old cat just discovered the convenience of using wood shavings as a litter box.
This way, she doesn't need to go outside in the cold or rain.
Dang, now I'm going to have to sweep up more often.

I forgot to mention why I put this in the tips section.
The tip:
Don't give your cat an excuse.

This winter my cat has started doing the same thing as I discovered when I stepped in a pile of shavings. More cleanup and more training are the order of the day. Fortunately the shavings seem to absorb the odor. I couldn' smell any of the typical litter box odor at all.

P.S. My wife has remarked in the past that the cats fur would make a great fur-lined bra. If the training doesn't take we may find out how it works.

I use chips when the box is too dirty and it's too late to go to the store.  Shavings don't last as long as litter but it works.  I find rosewood, tulip and cedar are the best  Smiley

Looking on the bright side, that should improve the C/N ratio if you use the shavings for mulch or compost.
