New Update, October 29,2014
Being a life long cat lover, I always research when it comes to the best cat litter and cat litter mats. My paw shaped cat litter mat is one of my favorites (Click here to see it!) for my favorite pet.
If you’re like me, you may be very thankful to Ed Lowe who introduced cat litter to the world. It was he who used the term “cat litter”. Interesting, too, is that cat litter is a relatively new invention. Ed Lowe only came up with this now “must-have” item in 1948. Whatever did cat owners do before 1948?
My cat are my 4 legged children and we treat as though they are always our members of the family no matter what. It has always taken me time to decide on the perfect name for my pet. Like Salsa, Rascal, Felix, Buster, Captain, Tigger and Mikey.
Choosing the best cat litter for a new cat is always an important task. Sometimes you might have to buy more than one brand when you don’t know what your cat will like or if he or she will have a preference over the type and scent. If you’re a brand new cat owner and getting a kitten, you may want to pay special attention to what works for a kitten being smaller and until it grows up a bit more.
I remember discovering Rascal when I went to a friend’s house who rescued a pregnant mom cat. He was the only orange one in the litter and didn’t even have his eyes open. I think she knew I wanted my cat Buster to have a brother. I didn’t notice at the time but Rascal was also a mitten kitten or also known as a polydactyl cat. He’s got an extra toe on his front legs.
I was very careful when I introduced Buster and Rascal to each other. At the time, I lived in small apartment. Rascal spent time in the bathroom while Buster was still King of the apartment. He could sniff Rascal under the door and feel less threatened. It took some time for them to adjust to each other. Rascal has a unique personality and was quite crazy as a kitten but he always had the best food and other cat products like toys to play with.
I always want to know what is going on with my kitties and take care of them. Today, Rascal lives with Felix. A kitty we adopted from our local county shelter after our beloved Captain passed away from a liver illness. Felix is much younger kitty than Rascal so he runs around alot more and leaps onto our cat tree. Rascal does too but not quite as much as Rascal does.
