03:25 pm: CatGenie Maintenance and Dream
The CatGenie wasn't draining again, so I took it apart and found a fur&granule clog in the hopper just behind the red washer. I washed it all as long as I had it apart. I'm concerned that I had this kind of clog with such short use. I was already concerned about setting to auto while I'm away at Minicon over Easter, and now I'm sure I don't want to do that. I don't know that I want to give them an old-style litterbox during that time, either. I'm going to have to think about this.

I had a variation of the pushing-me-out-of-my-house dream. Dad and Sue and my brother Rick and I were visiting friends for a long time and when it was time to go home, Sue told us that they'd torn down the old house and built a big new one while we were gone. She and Dad started right off, and I decided to wait until Rick was ready to leave. He didn't want to leave so I eventually went. The house was a castle/mansion and when Sue told me to look for my room, I couldn't find it. There were servants everywhere and I found that my stepsibs each had their own floors, but I couldn't find anything for Rick or me. I eventually found a senior servant and asked him. He said sadly "Well, you could keep looking." I asked him the quickest way to where the valet had my car keys and he told me. I went back to the friends, and Rick and I stayed there a couple of weeks until I found a place for us.

I've only had to take it apart due to a clog once. I also only have two short haired cats. When it is having trouble draining, I jiggle the hose but that has only happened a handful of times.

I have one short-haired cat and two medium-haired cats, of which one sheds a good bit. I went ahead and cut the hose to just the length needed -- about 17" -- so I wouldn't have to keep dealing with the hose.

Do you ever leave it on auto when you go away?

Unfortunately, I haven't mananged to go away anywhere since getting it. I would probably leave a regular box depending on how long I was going to be away.

I had a hard enough time weaning them from the old box, I'd be afraid I'd have to do it again. I'm thinking about puppy pads.

Do you and your cats track the granules through the house?
