Tuxie Two Pad

Yup.  Mom said looks like it will be a two pad arrangement for my litter box.  She put a new puppy pad down under my box Sunday afternoon.  She looked yesterday and say a little bit had collected in one place on the pad.  (I pee thru the crack of the box and it's clip on edge) So today, she took the box off the pad to check it better and replace it certainly when she discovered that the pad was soaked and the floor was wetter than it has ever been.  The pad distributed the pee all over..so it wasn't just collected in several smaller spots.

SO...she cleaned up all the wetness and cleaned the floor where it all had been and got out 2 puppy pads stacked one on top of the other.  While she's out she may look for some heavy plastic too, to add under that as well. This is so not fun I heard her murmur.

Happy Shrove Tuesday and I would have loved to be in the photo contest today but mom is too lame and doesn't know how to add things to pictures.  Sigh,  new technologically capable mom, please!

    Lame, isn't it, what moms complain about.

  3. I always use an underbed type plastic box. It is longer and wider than a traditional litter box - and less likely to ever crack. I sit it on top of this:

    It is usually for a garage floor, but the litter can fall thru so I can sweep up easily and my cats don't track litter up the basement stairs.

  7. Dear Carole,
    Hissy Old Licorice used to do that too! We had a washing machine drip pan (that we bought at a big box hardware store) underneath. It was heavy duty enough to withstand daily washing in the bathtub.
    Good luck.

  8. Whoa! Someone's aim isn't true! Does Spitty know this about you. *I* always get it in the box.

  9. I have the same challenge here. One of my clan somehow gets pee to accumulate under the box! Either they pee in the crack between the base and the lid or they stand in the uncovered box and somehow go over the edge onto the other box. Not sure how they do it, I just know it means extra cleaning! It's always something! Good luck with finding a solution!

  10. you are a rascal!! all of us can keep it inna box (we don't haf no covvers acause wif four of us, the concentrated ammonia smells were really ugly), but ed can't hit the inside of the pan when he poops. at least it's easier to clean up. we hopes double paddin' works.

    is grown-up human bean incontinence products (adult diapers) cheaper than piddle pads? they're wat mommer's boss is usin' in his puppy's crate.

    we hopes yer mom is feelin' better!!

  11. Looks like a new litter box is in order. Do these boxes have warranty's?

  12. The peep is technologically disadvantaged too, so I know just how you feel.

  13. Oh, Katie, you ARE being a challenge, aren't you? Dad sometimes puts 2 overlapping under Audrey's box. For quite a while, Simba's box in the basement was inside a very large cardboard box lined with plastic trash bags, with only one entry post cut lower in the box. It was a bit of an ordeal when cleaning time came, with scattered litter etc, but it did help out some. Yes, some of those human adult underpads are a bit bigger than puppy pads and work well size-wise. But sweetie, try to just squat and do it right!!!

  14. We got a fairly large door mat with a rubber back and raised sides to keep the snow in, of course, ours just keeps litter in, MOL But maybe something like that under a peepad or two? protects the floor anyway.

  15. Did I miss something, sweetie? You have to show me when I come over later.

    Much love, Your Boomie

  16. Katie, we admire your aim...Mommy, on the other hand, well she agrees with your Mom. What a poopyhead.

    ReplyDelete
  17. We have aim issues here too - we just got an even bigger litter box and so far so good. Happy Fat Tuesday!

  18. Sorry you're having so much trouble with your aim, Katie! Mom wonders whether your Mom is using an enzymatic cleaner to remove the urine scent. Something like Nature's Miracle or similar? Our sense of smell is so strong that normal cleaners to truly stop us from peeing there again.

    She also wonders if the cover is really helping things. Whatever the case, we hope there is no medical reason for the problem. We're sure your Mom would have checked that, first thing. She's that good!

  19. Katie Belle this is quite some aim you have it might be good to get an absorbant carpet unneath as this covers more room of the box.

  20. Katie, my sweet, it looks like you’ve peed your momma off! Is it because you have a good aim or a bad aim? lol xox

  21. We probably missed something along the way, but can't figure out how the problem started in the first place. But we're glad you're finding solutions!

  22. We sometimes potty right through the lid. Okay, we really mean Tamir does. Mom always keeps paper towels underneath to help clean up!

  23. heehee, sometimes Miss Jack goes to poop & she must think she's a pirate cos her derrier is hangin over the edge & you can guess where the poop goes then? She gets freaked out, won't cover it and runs off like her tail's on fire! Silly kitty!

  24. We had to get a big-boy litterbox when we got the Harley Quinn!

  25. I don't know how to add much that is for sure. I just use Photobucket and that isn't too hard if you want me to try to teach Mom. But it would be like the blind leading the blind. They need to make a program for those of us that are technically challenged. LOL.

  26. Well, Miss Katie, I hope you can get your box problems solved soon. It isn't really fair to your Mom, even though she does love you as you are.

    What sort of processing/editing software does your Mom have, or what is available to her, besides Picnik?

  27. We hope your mom gets your facilities all fixed up Katie! We also hope your loo stays ON the ground when you are in it!

  28. Maybe a new litter box - with higher sides - is in order?

    Happy Mardi Gras to you and Mommy!

  29. Sometimes it doesn't even help having a techie human, Katie! Mine was too busy, if you can believe that, to come up with a good picture.

  30. We're sure that just when your mom figures out how to handle your litter box problem, Katie, you'll come up with another way to mess things up! Good job, kiddo!!

  31. Does they let u use teh bafroome?

  32. Our mom puts our litter boxes in a white plastic trash bag then when its time to empty them she pulls the litter box out & ties up the bag. Maybe that will help stop your box from leaking? We usually don't tear the bag up with our nails luckily.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Okay, I so don't get this. Have I not been paying attention?? Why don't you get a litterbox without a crack? But that's not really what you are talking about here, is it? I think I missed something!

    Anyway, my Lame-O Human failed to produce a Mardi Gras picture for me, although she says she might do a tardy one next weekend. Sigh. Wanna trade for awhile?

  35. ha ha - sounds like you has been keeping mom busy with puppy pads - ha ha and you don't even has a puppy! Good trick Katie. M didn't make any pictures for me either. What are we going to do with our moms?

  36. A heavy black trash bag might help. Or a chair mat.

  38. Our foster cat Leo was doing that too (peeing through the crack) because he is big and tall and the lower bottom part of the litter box was too shallow so he would go to the washroom on or above the crack. LP bought a jumbo bow with a nice deep/high bottom so when he he went to the washroom the crack was well above his aim. It worked!
