Shopping for Cat Litter? Puh-lease!

Posted by Sharkey

After we visited Parrots and Company, where we bought special canary food, we made another stop at a different pet supply store, where we went shopping for the cats.  I got to thinking that cats are really high-maintenance!

Sharkey, let's make sure we get everything on our list.  With so many animals in the house, we've got a lot of shopping to do!

Luckily, we're in the right place!  This place has everything!  There's so much to choose from!

Sharkey, first on the list is kitty litter...say, why do they need litter anyway?  They should just go outside like we do!

Francesca, it's believed that cats likely originated from the desert, as ancient Egyptians worshiped them.  The sand, combined with the instinct to cover their tracks, explains why they're partial to litter.

All right, we've got cat food and cat litter...say, what's this?

Look, Francesca!  They have a keychain for French Bulldogs and it looks like me!  Oh, we should get this for Uncle Carlos!

And this fridge magnet that holds a pen and paper—it has Chow Chows on it!  Wouldn't GK love that?

What did you say, Sharkey?  I am otherwise...um...preoccupied over here.

Francesca!  We need to stop getting distracted by everything!  We're only taking what's in the cart.  I'm writing the check for it right now!

Oh, but before we leave, I might partake in one of these free organic treats!

  • Hello girls,
    Here I am in the middle of the night again. I can't help myself. I wake up, I look around, everyone is sleeping. So, I channel surf, then I get on the computer and before you know it, I am on the DW.
    You girls sure are getting into some great stores with some nice goodies in them . I can't wait to see where you are headed next. Well, it is pretty lonely when you are the only one awake in the entire house so I think I will go back to bed
    Talk to everyone in the morning
    Love to all,
    Maddox

Must get some rest..later glue squaders, Cora-Belle

  • Good Morning F & S

    Franny you should have stuffed one of those big rawhide bones in the cart that looked delicious! We never get rawhide bones we only get organic treats and dried fruit BORING.

    And I agree why don't those furballs go outside to do their business? That's pretty gross to go in a box and cover it up. What don't they think anyone is going to find it? And do they think it won't stink?? Puh-lease!!! Get your lazy butts out doors to poop and pee. Oh wait furballs get better then they leave hairballs around the house as if you need more to clean up! Are they really worth all that trouble?

    Ok speaking of trouble my cousin Chloe has been up to no good. Maddox she is not back at book camp but I'm thinking she should be. Mom stopped by there last night and get this - Mom is in the bathroom and had to yell out to someone that there was no TP and was told look up - well don't you know the TP roll is now VERY high - so high you have to stand to get yourself a stash to do your thing. No TP for at least 5 feet in the air - way to go Chloe. Her mom said she takes the entire roll off and chews it up. Plus she dug a VERY big hole in the middle of the lawn. So my cousin is not behaving but she sure is a cutie :)

  • Hi again,
    I am back. Well Zoe, at least I see why she hasn't posted. She is probably afraid we will laugh at her for being bad. And we will but we think it is funny. We don't care if she is bad. We love her just the way she is. But instead of putting the TP 5 feet in the air, why don't they just get one of those fancy TP covers that they make now? Chloe won't know it is in there, unless she reads this. hehehehehehehe

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Another hot day ahead; think I’ll take advantage of the AC today. I will have to agree with the thought that the cats should be going outside and not in a little tray in the house. I say throw them out when they have “business” to do. As for Chloe, she hasn’t been as bad as I have been. She only dug a hole in the backyard; I dug a hole in my tail again. It’s hard to use the computer with this thing around my neck but it keeps me away from my tail. Now you know the ‘real’ story of why I am inside; it’s not the heat it’s my “shade of shame” I’m wearing. It’ll be harder to do but,
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Looks like you are having fun and getting a few treats in the process, shopping for all the animals. You look hot though--panting. I like to look at pretty cats, but like you girls, just never learned how to understand them. That poop in a box, I understand more now. I couldn't clean the litter box when I kittysat. Well, at least Zoe, we know what Chloe has been up to. I hope she straightens up before Boot Camp the sequil happens. Zoe, tell me what dried fruit you get for treats. I need to know what you like for the next puppy, so I can plan. I have heard of veggies--we used to give Tasha green beans, fresh, until she started itching and had an allergy. Today is our 36th anniversary and I am excited for a special dinner downtown and stay overnight at the hotel where the restaurant is--the Monoco. We have a free stay from a time when I complained at the restaurant, so that makes it sweeter. I really missed my Basil more than usual yesterday. What is wrong with me crying? I have lots of great memories and have to think of those, right? He never tore things up but he sure was a little Guido and would run when he escaped. So know Chloe, that in time you will settle down. We all do. Hahahaha. Abby, you tell the boarders what it is all about, and Dudley, Rebel, Maddox, Kirby, Zoe and Kitty,and Miss Chow, just keep cool. And to all my other Glue Squad buddies, have a great Tuesday.
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, You two girls sure have had fun getting nice things for your nice buddies at Bedford farm! I love seeing all the places you have been visiting and you look so happy in all of these terrific photos! You sure do know how to teach all of us such great stuff and I love it all! How is your weather? It's cool and cloudy here and might be warm and sunny tomorrow-sure hope so! Nice to see that most of you great buddies like birds and kitties like I do! Lynn, sure hope those terrible fires in Colorado stop ASAP and my prayers are with you to be safe! Sure wish you were getting some of our rain and the rain down in the south east areas, you really need rain and cooler weather! Maddox, sure hope Karen's new big kennel gets completed real soon! Will check later to see how the rest of you are doing! Hope all of you have a great, safe day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Mornin' ladies,
    Shopping for the furballs,eh? Well, Uncle Carlos does have the list! You gals look worn out, panting & all.
    Those little presents sure were nice. I think all the Chow Moms would like the notepaper holder, don't you? Did you get the key chain for Uncle Carlos or maybe anyone of the great ladies that work for Martha.
    Frannie, you sure do dream big! That bone would take you years to chew down! LOL
    Nuthin going on at are house, just waiting for the huge bubble of super hot air. YUCK. I'll be stuck in doors.
    Hey, Lynn...Those fires sound awful. I'm thinking of you.
    Have a great day everybody.
    Your pal,
    Dancing-for-my-cheerios Rebel

  • I love the photos of your dogs in the shopping cart, sniffing treats and checking out! They are great...and funny!

  • Those cats and canaries sure are lucky that you two will go out shopping for them. Surely you two added some treats for yourselves right. :wink: Congratulations Lynn on 36 years of happiness. You just know that Ambassador Warrior Prince Basil is sending his love and watching over you. Ahh Chloe you have taken T.P. to a whole new level. Maybe your Mom can set aside a section of the yard just for you to dig in just for you. Oh Kirby Bear not the cone of shame again? I think you may secretly like wearing it! Everyone have a great day. :smile:

  • Hello Francesca, Sharkey, Maddox, Lynn, and all the glue squad buddies,
    Well James Dean the persian cat was howling and really not happy with his brushing today. then he read the daily wag comments and had areal hissy fit because he said it is imperative for indoor, yes, indoor cats to do their business in the box to remain in their homes without "decorating" somewhere inappropriate. He is all bent out of shape so i just laughed! I don't need my pug frenchie hair brushed everyday!!
    Chloe keep on digging girlfriend, maybe you are doing landscaping work. Kirby hope your tail feels better. Sharkey that keychain really looks like you! Good job Franny checking out that giant bone! Maddox, great job teaching the younger pups how to stay away from the t.p. Cora belle, hope you get lots of maple bars and barking time with the chiweenies. Missy Chow, great job in training class.
    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY LYNN!! We hope you have a super time out at dinner tonight. I will be dreaming of hot dogs, hamburgers and beach campfires with the chiweenies and cheerios for Rebel!! Abby

  • What a fun post today! I see Sharkey is quite good at check writing. May I send you a few of my bills to pay! :)

    First birds, now cats. Whose next? The donks?

    Do you think the donks favorite show is "Hee Haw! :) Get it...donk sounds! :)

    I really don't think the key chain or the pen/paper set was on the shopping list. Or are you like me when shopping? Throw a few extras in the basket! :)

    Have a super Tuesday!
