06:23 pm: Litterbox Finale
Nobody had used the litterbox in the living room with the regular litter, so after I scooped today, I put the litter from there into the utility room litterbox, and put the Cat Attract litter into the litterbox in the living room (to see if the shortness would be better). Spirit used it immediately. So I'll have to call the vet and ask about the liquid because it would be very difficult for me to get clay litter into and out of the house.

lizzibabe's Little Theatre is reported on by the WashPost today. Unfortunately, the picture that shows the left side of her head isn't in the online version. (I'll bring the paper copy on Saturday.)

At the end of last year, the WashPost's Technology Columnist gave information on what to do with old small electronics. I have a fairly old T-Mobile Sidekick 3 and I tried it on both Gazelle and YouRenew and Gazelle offered me $33, YouRenew offered me $30. Thirty-three dollars was pretty good compared to what they're going for on eBay, so I said I'd send it to them. Gazelle emailed me a prepaid label and packing list. I packed it up and took it to Fedex on 1/2 and emailed them that I'd sent it. They let me know when they got it -- about halfway through this week -- and yesterday told me that their inspectors said my description was accurate and they'll put the $33 in my PayPal account (my choice). Pretty good deal.

I am, as usual, dealing with bed laundry.

Someday, someone's going to realize they could make a killing doing home cat litter delivery the way they used to deliver milk.

Oh definitely! That and food! The litter I've been using -- Swheatscoop -- comes in boxes that I can handle most days, with the rolling cart. But the bags are very difficult.

There are already grocery delivery services in several US cities, even after the demise of Peapod. For that matter, I think Giant Eagle around here will deliver groceries to invalids.

Peapod hasn't demised here -- I'm going to put in a two-month order next Sunday! The two other gimpy people in my development use them, too (although they're both a good bit older than I am). I still usually do weekly or special shopping at the grocery, Giant, that owns Peapod here, but I need Peapod for heavy things (like bottles of cranberry juice) or bulky things (like TP). Unfortunately, Peapod is aimed at people with more money than I have and frequently don't have things like the cat stuff I need.

Did you get what you need from your vet? And are things working out with the litterbox now?

It turns out there's a retail version (she emailed them to make sure it was exactly the same) that they don't promote on the website. The local PetSmart carries it, so I'll get it there.

Spirit did poop on the towel last night, but it was immediately after she had been in the litterbox and Loki came up and sniffed her back, scaring her onto the end table & towel. I hope that's just an aberration because Loki scared her.
