You'd think Coffee'd be a little more interested in the mouse.

N@: Huh?

I think I figured out why Coffee sneezes so much. She's allergic to clumping litter, because of the clay dust that it kicks up. She had a major sneezing fit this morning, on her way out of her bathroom. (Yes, she has her own bathroom. There are two in this apartment, after all.) So I bought some new stuff today. It's pellets made of recycled newspaper. We'll see if that stops the sneezies.

cute pic...

There are not many cats who have their own bathroom. Actually there are not many people who have their own bathroom, so i'd have to say thats one lucky kitty.

You can also buy a corn or wheat based type of litter ...now I know who has the smarts in our scrabble games . Hehheheheheh.

Newsguy Bob said...

Yeah, corn or wheat litter, at twice the cost of recycled newsprint litter. It's like buying Fourbucks coffee -- I mean, Starbucks coffee -- when Tim Hortons is better, and less expensive.
So far, so good, less sneezing.

I understand the loyalty to Tim's, Bob, what with Ma bein' and owner and all, but Tim Horton's coffee gives me very, very bad heartburn, and I can't drink it...
So I drink Starbucks.
It's good-tasting, not burned, as Second Cup can sometimes be, and doesn't rip up my innards.
Tim's does great things in the community, and I heartily support them in efforts to help kids.
...but it's worth it to my health to drink the expensive stuff.
No offense meant to Tim owners anywhere. Love you, Ma.

NGB ICANHASCHEEZBURGER.COM is a sight I blogged about a couple months back (http://misster-kitty.blogspot.com/2007/06/laugh-til-you-pee.html)... it's a site were people submit pics of their pets (although there's the odd Walrus, Polar Bear or Squirrel there too) with added comedic text. I go there EVERY DAY without fail, most days a couple of times, 'cause it's updated often and it NEVER fails to make me smile, lol or in some cases SOL...

...and with that in mind you NEED to get over there, because I fear for the innocence of poor young Coffee...

Personally I'd take a Tims double double intravenously if I could... ain't NUTIN better... but I'd go to a 2nd Cup (slight brand loyalty having work in two for more years than I care to actualize) before I went to Fourbucks (as NGB so rightly called em) but here in Montréal we also have some other great coffee mules... Café Depot, Van Houtte, and also Deux Marie.
