Meezer Rule Wednesday Times Two

First, an explanation - we have had an automatic litterbox almost since they were invented, and we all love it - us cats because we always have a nice clean litterbox, and mom because while she does have to scoop occasionally, it is not more than once a day or once every other day. That being said, we were on our second littermaid in about 14 years when suddenly on Sunday morning, Mom sensed something was wrong. She wasn't hearing the usual whirring noise it makes. She looked at it and noticed that the raking arm was stuck half-way down the box. With three cats, and with Tiki being diabetic, our litterbox gets a workout - Tiki pees a LOT. So later that day, Mom went off to the store to replace our litterbox with our 3rd one. She thinks the motor burned out, and she thinks for a machine that gets as much use as the litter maid, having 2 motors go out in approximately 14 years isn't that bad. Keep reading for Tavi's rule.Tavi's Rule - You must always play king of the box, especially when a large box comes in.
Our new box - it is different than our last one - but we won't get into that now.
Here is Tiki's Rule - Make your mom say "Squee" by giving your brother a bath and showing off your teeth and tongue. (Thanks for the word Marilyn, Mao, Brainball, and Dory)
Don't forget to post a knock knock joke tomorrow - if you are having trouble finding jokes - you can go here or here.

Those are both fabulous rules! :)

One thing our mom is looking forward to about being posted back to Canada in 2010 is that she'll be able to buy an automatic litterbox! She does all the scooping (that was the one deal our mom and dad made when our dad agreed to let our mom have a Sphynx).

Our mommy has always considered getting one of those because she hates cleaning the boxes and we have three now. Great rules too!

Great rule, Tiki!

Wait, you mean you don't have to wait like 2 squillion years for your human to scoop? I know some work with crystals, we'll have to look into it.

Your teeths are very clean! We know about the frequent litter box use, because Pixie takes Lasix and that makes her go potty all the time.

Wow, we don't have such a great litter box but I definitely have to search for one. Great rule, Tiki.

We have a Littermaid but our Mom's favorite is our Litter Robot. Mom never has to scoop it out and it uses regular plastic grocery bags and it lasts for a long time between cleaning. The only problem is our geezer cat Kali will not use any of the electric pans. She's too arthritic for climbing into the machines. So she has her own regular litter box. Because of that, we all prefer her litter box so the automatics don't get used nearly as much as Mom would like. My mom is jealous of your mom's ability to just use your Littermaid. She's complaining about life not being fair again. Oh well...

What a cute photo of you two! I know my mom gets all excited when I treat my bro to a bath.

And king of the box is a good rule for everyone!

We have that same litter box and it never seems to work. :-( As you said it either gets stuck, or it rakes like 5 times before it stops. It also dumps a TON of litter that is perfectly good. Ugh!!!

Chris wants the Cat Genie, but dang, thats expensive!!
