No Littering With Cats

I hate cat litter, it's smelly, dusty, and I can only imagine the chemicals involved making this stuff, not to mention wondering what happens once it's been used and tossed. So I decided to try something new, Feline Pine it was 100% chemical free and 100% recycled, so I figured why not give it a shot. I have to be honest, the first day I was ready to dump the whole box. Every time little kitty did her thing she needed to be rewashed by moi, I mean the sawdust stuff all over her body was bad enough, but the stinky stuff between her toes...not cool, not cool at all. I decided I would stick with it for a few days though, apparently hating litter more then the actual poop it clumps too. Within two days miss she-devil figured it out, barely even sawdust when she hops out of the box. A good thing too since she likes to sleep under the covers. I got the clumping kind but when it's used up (and it seems to be lasting a good while) I may try the original to see if it takes away the tracking all together; though the little bit that does make it's way out of the litter box is actually less then regular litter. I recommend this stuff to anyone tired of the nasty old stuff and ready to try something better for their home and cats; just give it a few days for the little guys to get used to it.

Earlier this week Kelsey came over with her girls (and maybe boy!???
Yes, she is expecting again! Third one in as many years, AND they, along with the rest of the family, are very excited) to make Valentines day cards. I think we were all ready to stop before the end, poor Joy crying in the background as Kelsey and I are encouraging the girls, "Pretty, do you want to put another sticker on?" "How 'bout a stamp?" "Gold glitter will look really nice on that one." "Pass the glue, please." All the while thinking...this glitter is going to follow me for the rest of my life, and I hope it isn't TOO sparklely coming out the other end for the girls, you know what with working at the table and it getting all over. I wish I was a crafty mom, you know the kind that made everything material in the house, reupholstered her furniture, painted the mural on the wall and can deftly maneuver the five other projects she's working on while helping her 2 month old daughter learn to crochet? I'd like to be more like her, alas, glitter and finger paint seem to be as far as I've gotten.

Hard at work.

Quite done.

Oh, and I get to see my sisters tonight!

I also like the feline pine. It took a little time for the cat but it is all I will get now.
There is a lot of fun to be had with finger paint. Its any type of clay that I can't do. Madelyn has always been fine but my boys seem to be able to get it in rooms that they haven't even been in.
