Litterbox war

I had all manner of dogs and cats growing up.

I wasn't put in charge of them, didn't know the incredible mess they made.

fast forward to adulthood.

For my wife who has been ill for over a decade, I gladly keep a few indoor cats.

Now,

I'm not excited about the lack of progress in cat litter & litterbox technology. We can put a man on the moon...yadda yadda yadda.

I seek the vast accumulated knowledge of the planet.

We buy the clumping litter from Sam's.

Is THAT as good as it gets?! Hoochie-mamma, I might go with animatronic cat substitutes for as long as I can get away with it.


Pour forth the wisdom of the ages.

What do you buy? Where? I'd prefer magical stuff, but I'll settle for "works awesome".

Would love "no stink & easy to deal with". Dream on?

I can't imagine a raccoon ever being stupid enough to try entering my home. When it comes to dogs, I almost always have at least one of the giants (i.e. St. Bernard/Great Dane/Mastiff), and my dogs go out both during the day and at night, so the local animals would know better.

I'd be willing to pick up the raccoon pieces if I got to watch what happened to it if one did try coming inside, though.

Dog before that was a 120-pound Great Pyrenees.

A well-trained GP and you can use a (large) dog door or a swinging door. If you don't want slobber, there are all sorts of smaller dogs available.

I get the whole cat people/dog people thing, although I happen to like both. What I don't get is people seriously thinking that the other choice is somehow a bad one. Dogs are more people oriented than cats, and they can require a little more effort if you choose the wrong type for your living circumstances. Other than that, though, both will piss and shit all over the place if you don't set up an acceptable alternative. Both will trash the house if you don't teach them not to. Both will piss you off at one point or another. There's not really a right or wrong choice.

I'm not against dogs, but I do prefer cats. And actually, the GP didn't slobber much, mainly right after he'd eat or drink. He didn't even lick your hand.

On topic, I don't know what litter we use - wife changed it because it tracks less, but I hate the smell of the litter even brand new. Her suggested compromise: she can continue to get that litter, but she has to clean the box. I'm taking that as a win. And she scoops daily, full change out about once a week.

I'm OK with it. Cats are way closer to my personality. I don't need an animal to need me all the time. I like that cats have moods. Sometimes they're pissed off, a sometimes they want attention. Sometimes they're ornery, sometimes playful. Dogs are always happy, always want attention. I like that I have to earn a cat's trust and love.

Cats are adults. Dogs are retarded children.

And this.

Telling someone they're not manly because they prefer a cat over a dog is ignorant. A dog and cat the exact same size and weight, 9 times out of 10 the cat would destroy the dog in a fight. My girl's pit/border collie won't **** with her Maine Coon, he learned his lesson the hard way...that was an expensive vet bill.

If it's a pissing match you want...

Cat People Are Smarter Than Dog People, New Study Shows


For me, I'd love to have a dog, but it'd have to come with a full-time dog sitter. I can leave my cats alone for 2-3 days at a time, and they're just fine. I do too many long weekends away to deal with a dog, even though I'd love to have one for the personality.

Is that the study that has already been found to be bullshit, or did they try pimping a new one?

Nevermind..... that's the self-selected college study. It's a complete sham.
