Tattle Tail Tuesday



Meowmy is NOT a good litterbox attendant. She thinks she does an OK job but it can be days before she scoops the poop from our box. We have 2 boxes, one upstairs and one down. We mostly use the downstairs one in the kitchen. We have crystals so the boxes get fully changed every 2-3 weeks. That means if she doesn't remove all of the poo it gets quite dirty in there. So there you have it, I've tattled.

Eww my delicate feet. Every now and then the woman forgets to scoop and it is a pain. Worse, sometimes she forgets to empty out the automatic litter box filer things and then they overflow. YUCK.

The Meezers said...

ah, litter surfing is not fun. our mommy is a little behind in the litter scooping department herself.

I feel you pain. I feel your pain.

Mum is much better about cleaning my box. It is done every day.

Skeeter And LC said...

DAYS? Yike, we get our 3 litterboxes cleaned (for the 2 of us) at least once a day if not twice. We taught The Big Thing what happens if he doesnt do it at least once a day a long time ago... (heh-heh)

If Mommy doesn't clean our box, we go other places.

Parker said...

Wow, we have the same boxes, the same scooper and paw mat and we use the crystals too! Our attendants are a little more attentive - if they aren't we "think" outside the box!

Ramses said...

Oh that's dreadful! We'z has the same type of kitty paw mat outside of one of our two boxes too... We'z got special double decker litter boxes now 'cause we only liked using the downstairs one! ;)

Sunny's Mommy said...

Bad Meowmy! But Awesome Man could help, too!

Caesar and Princess said...

we have two boxes also. We scream really loud, like the house is on fire. Mommie knows it is time to clean the box. We also try to be extra messy when it starts to look really bad.
Your mommie should do a better job.
Thanks for this very damaging information on her.... I am sure Santa is reading as well

Dragonheart said...

Poor you, Latte. My litterbox gets cleaned at least once, and normally twice a day.

Junior said...

Yep.....my Meowm is the same...she doesn't clean my box as well as she used to....I have no idea what to do with her!

Annie Mosaic Cat said...

Eeeeeeeeew!
GROSS!
Mosaic Lady has to scoop our two every morning, and sometimes later in the evening.
Sadie and I are very delicate and precise in our potty placements.
However, Willie has a bladder the size of a HIPPO so when he pees, it's a massive puddle.
Bianca has...maybe arthritis? or an attitude?...so she usually misses the box and pees all over the trash can liners used to protect the floor.
It's all very GROSS.
Which is why I prefer to spend my days outside, and also why ML never ever goes into that room until she is fully caffinated.
Good Tattle, Latte!

When Mom goes away, Dad is kind of like that. Mom is really good about doing our boxes twice a day. They are not covered, so her nose tells her when she is behind!

Sheesh, we have one of thos "automatic" litter boxes and mom forgets to empty the bin and it stays open and STINKS. She's getting better about it now that she's home all the time.

Forty Paws said...

Wow! We have our Maw trained much better because we'll leave presents for her if she doesn't take care of our boxes. We have 11 litter boxes here. Four with scoopable litter and 7 with clay litter on newspaper. Jenny was very particular about her clay litter when she was younger, so that is why all of us and now particular.

I know what you mean, Latte. Sometimes my litter pan looks like somebody's been tossing confetti! Not me, of course.

Hey, thanks for getting behind us in supporting the Rescue Farm and the Care4Cats fund for Cat Blogosphere kitties. You're a magnificent meezer!!

I don't think too many mom's or dad's like the litter cleaning day. Sometimes it seems like it can be put off forever, argh! I'm glad you told on her, maybe she will do a better job, at least for awhile. Oh, I was visiting with Beau today and he isn't feeling too good. Thinking if we all could visit over there and let him know that he is in our thoughts and prayers this might make him feel better. Beau mentioned that he needed healing prayers. Thought you would want to know.

The Furry Kids said...

Oh, crap! I forgot it was tattle tail Tuesday. What would happen if a poop just sort of got flung out of the litterbox? Do you think she'd get the hint and scoop a little bit more? heh heh

Daisy said...

My Mommie scoops all the time, but she hates sweeping up all those loose crystals off the floor. We are going to do a Tattle Tail Tuesday next week!

Black Cat said...

Ha, Oliver wouldn't let me slack on the litter cleaning. I had to scoop EVERY TIME he used the box. When I was out at work he would occasionally use it a second time but more often, if he could, he would cross his legs until I came home and then rush to the box even while I was still scooping, hahaha! xxx

Queen Snickers said...

We have the same boxes and scoop! And apparently the same attendant! It is supposed to be daddy's job. He promised momma when they got marred she would never have to do it. Well I'm just glad momma doesn't always keep to that or it would never get done! I always yell at mommy or daddy when it gets too stinky and then lead them to the litter box. Training beans is hard work.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

maaaahahahaha aand there was I thinking I was alone in living with a slovenly human...still, at least your human provides two litter trays. I have only one and I am FORCED to share it with stinky mao x

Scout said...

You are very brave to tattle on Mommy. Sometimes my Mommy is a little bad about scooper duty and it makes for a mad Scouty!

Tamra Maew said...

I feel your pain, it can also take a few days sometimes before my box gets empty, good thing its always very full of litter and I can find some clean spots. I still think this is worse for you though because you are 3 for 2 litters!! I once flinged out a piece, the servants didn't like that at all and it got my box cleaned immediately.

Purrrs,
Tamra
