Cat Litter is Not as Simple as You Think

My house has three levels and there is a litter box at each level.  I have been ridiculed for having such.  But, I don't like my doorway to the basement open at all times, it creeps me out.  It is damp and drafty down there.  I will let the cats down there and leave it open when I go out, but when I am home I prefer it shut.  If I left the basement open all the time I could eliminate the need for litter on the porch/catio. The upper level of the house is home to a high tech invention, which does not belong to me.  The new fangled contraption is an automated kitty litter box which needs no scooping.  It belongs to my roommate who is presently out of the country.  She bought it as I am to care for her cat while she is away and she wanted as little work as possible for me to do.  Her cat has her own room and I put her in there periodically.  Caliope needs a break from Leo and vise versa.  The main point of this blog entry is to discuss kitty litter, not cat politics.

We have the standard clay, made to accomodate more than one cat and it is scoopable.  I like to scoop the poops out, cause I can't stand the odor or the artificial odor of odor control fragrances.


You can get much more for your money if you scoop out the urine clumps and feces daily.  This is on the first floor, on the Patio catio porch.


Then there is the feline pine.  It is sawdust, and never smells fake or disgusting.  It is on the basement level.


Here we have the automated cat litter box on the top floor, in the Caliope's private domain.  She poops and pees into silica crystals.  Imagine that?  CRYSTALS!  How sophisticated can a cat get?  About ten minutes after she "goes"  a little automated rake pushes the feces into that purple compartment.  As you can see, it is a plug in device.  It is completely out of my value system, I would never purchase such.  It does not matter, it is my roommate's.  It is very popular as the original supplier of crystals was sold out.  These crystals come all the way from China.  Perhaps they will become more expensive, with the trade war ensueing!
