Do you have cats? Then you know about kitty litter issues. Yes, Kitty Litter Issues! You know what I mean. If you have kitties, or let's just call them what they are, Cat's, you have issues.
Let it be said that when you visit cat owners homes you generally only see the cat. Sometimes you see the cat food dispenser, sometimes even the litter box. Have you ever heard cat owners talk about how miserable litter maintenance can be? Bet not.
I'm here to save you from Cat Litter ignorance. Why? Cause I just know you are like me and in your initial "I think I 'd like to have a cat" emotional attraction, you will be sorely unaware of the downside of having a new living breathing being in your home.
Cat hair, you might ask? No, that's no biggie. Fur balls? No, that's manageable too. Ok, you asked, here it is: Cat Pee.
Once again, if you have cats you know what I'm talking about. One whiff of the stuff and man, you better get a grip on something solid pretty fast because you are possibly going to faint. I sure almost did. On the hottest day of the summer I opened the door of my bedroom and nearly dropped on the floor from the wave of smell that instantly overwhelmed me. One of the cats had soaked a nice neat little pool right up there on our cozy duvet.
First thing you do after you overcome the nasty first impression is to close the door and panic over how you are going to get that mess cleaned up. But that is really the secondary issue at hand. What you need to do is figure out why she did it in the first place and provided she doesn't have a UTI (Urinary Track Infection) you probably have a simple matter of litter management.
In our house we have tried the litter trays, then the enclosed litter tray (apparently Cat's like privacy) but the daily cleaning of these trays is nasty. This just means that whoever is assigned the duty for today is probably going to conveniently forget to do it as often as possible.
Neglecting to clean the litter daily can cause it to smell and be very discouraging to your cat from entering it. After all, what if you...Naw, forget it, I won't go there.
Cat’s are very clean animals. Heck, they spend every waking hour of their day cleaning themselves, they better be! They also don’t like being in smelly environment’s, what’s more, they don’t like climbing over their previous disposal. So the litter has to be kept clean.
This led me on a worldwide search for the most effective automatic litter box.
I found a few good ones. Rakes, auto scoopers, etc. But these two seem coolest and best. Stay tuned for my update and review once we have tried one.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
