My new kitty displayed an amazing amount of smarts while I was away. I cleaned the litterbox for her before I left, but she then proceeded to fill it in short order. As kitty lovers know, they don’t much care for soiled litter boxes. When the box gets messy, they find other, cleaner places to do their business. Usually, the places they choose are not at all good for the humans involved. I can imagine my Sherry running around the house thinking, “I’ve got to go! Got to go! Where’s that boy? My box is dirty! Got to go!” She got to the kitchen, got onto the table, and spotted my sugar canister. I keep my sugar in a large glass jar with a metal screw-on lid. Sherry’s seen me use it on many occasions, and I guess she thought the powdery sugar would make an excellent litter substitute. First, she unscrewed the lid and knocked it aside. She then tipped over the jar and rolled it to the edge of the table. Then, somehow without knocking to jar to the floor, she scooped a bunch of sugar out of the jar and onto the floor. When she had a nice pile (a couple pounds’ worth), she jumped down and took a whiz. As it turns out, sugar really does make a nice litter substitute. It clumps nicely. It’s easy to clean. It masks the odor perfectly. Still, she was very happy that I scooped out her box as soon as I walked in the door.
