Somedays it is absolutely wonderful to be a cat advisor. For example, I've received a lovely note from Smooshie. You may recall she was having problems using her litterbox -- even though she was in it at the time, her waste would travel outside the box! (See entry: Stand and Deliver from October 29,2009) She wrote:
Well Smooshie, all I can say is Congratulations and you DO look wonderful -- thank you for the photo. This is such wonderful news that I'd like to throw a catnip party!
The way you position yourself made me ponder about a possible improvement to the high-sided box -- by putting the opening on the longer-side of the box rather than the shorter one. That MIGHT induce cats like you to re-position yourself upon entry, so that you are perpendicular to the entrance. But frankly, Smooshie, that's just a guess on my part and I don't advise that you try it at this point. After all, as Herself might say: If it ain't broke, don't fix it! And you, my dear, are doing splendidly.
Now as a result of your excellent behaviour, I assume that some very special gifts will come your way during the holiday season. Don't hesitate to direct your slaves to the choice(s) you most favour. I will be listing some of my choices in an upcoming entry -- watch for it!
