Wacky Wednesday

I'm surrounded by litter for this little story.

Question: How many humans does it take to empty a litter box? (Answer the end of the post.)


Today was a big day at La Condo Keisha. My wacky peeps decided they were finally gonna clean out my new box. I call it my "new box" because it's the newest litter box in the condo but it's really quite old. As everybody who cleans their cat's boxes every week knows, the first step is to take all the old litter out.

Pop: Get a bag.

TW: This one is big enough. I saved it for just this reason. [Note from CK: The peeps get excited over the simplest things.]

Pop: Does it have any holes?

TW: Open it and look.

Pop: Looks fine to me.

After deciding the bag was in tip-top shape, Pop held the bag open and TW "carefully" poured the old litter into it.

TW: Make sure the bag doesn't rip while I'm pouring the litter.

Pop: Looks good to me. Now I'll pick up the bag and take it out and dump it down the chute.

I'm sure you know the punch line.


HAH!!


Answer: The same number of humans it takes to rip a thin plastic bag.

  2. Since we live in a house, my human takes the box with the used litter directly to the trash can and pours it all in! She has it SO easy - I may never know how dumb she really is!

  5. Oh my, so typical. I guess my staff have learned something though, they always use new plastic bags straight from the roll for this purpose.

  6. Haha. Mommy uses TWO bags for this purpose (with 7 of us, there's a LOT of litter).

  10. CK that happens when DAD does the litterboxes not Mom....so we think DAD is doing it on purpose so only Mom can clean the boxes.

  17. You have to admit that things around the condo might be a bit boring were it not for such human hijinks, CK!

  18. Bwahahaha. That's funny, CK! Mostly because it's happened to our humans before, too. Now they usually double up the bag before they start pouring...

  23. Oh CK. I gave Ann of Boolatry credit. That was her fine work. xoxoxoxox

  24. We hate it when that happens. Mom is the kind that double bags just in case of holes or tears. Our dad is the kind who doesn't even look at the bag prior to scooping or emptying. It makes Mom really crazy, but she doesn't say anything. She's afraid he'll never do any scooping or emptying ever again. How hard were your laughing C.K.?

  25. Bwaa!!! Haa!!! Haa!!!
    Mommy even tooked our box outside to does the scooping today, but mes fooled her...
    Mes has taken to peeing on the OUTSIDE of the box and digs the litter OUT of the box all over the floor, so when they MOVE the box, there is a big pile of stinky clay!!!

  26. Heh heh heh. Good one! I mean, you mighta fooled the others, but *I* know you clawed that little hole in the bag yourself!

  27. CK, I'm still at the dentist...can you spring me? And bring some vine...

  28. I think you'll be better off cleaning the litter box yourself.

  29. HA! Well, I'm sad (and embarrassed somewhat) to say that this same scenario is acted out in MY house too. I've come to the conclusion that ALL plastic bags are made with little holes in them at the bag factory....they all seem to have them....just big enough for litter to pour out. I'm sure the plastic bag manufacturers get a BIG charge out of knowing what happens in the homes of cat owners 'round the world as a result.

    Kitty hugs, Sammy
