I scoured the merchants of this dot on the plains, vainly hoping to find a LitterMaid litterbox that would accommodate my crew of kittehs. I have four (they all made me take them home, I swear) and two of them are... um... jolly-sized? Nobody in town has the jumbo model of mechanized cat crap removal I desire, so it's off to Amazon.
This is my Maru. He was a big guy when this was taken, and now there's even more of him to love. My daughter named him before we stumbled onto the famous Maru of YouTube fame. Except for the ears and a couple of extra pounds, they look alot alike!
I found my Maru as a very tiny kitten, crouched behind the rear wheels of a vehicle that was getting ready to back out of a driveway on a very dark, -5F night. I dove out of my car and scooped him up. The poor little guy was completely blind in both eyes from a rather severe bilateral infection of the conjunctivae and he had a deep gash on his left side. He was freezing, and starving. He was instantly mine. Maru gets whatever he wants.
Buddy was SO grateful when he came to live with us.
Four is a generous number of cats, by any measure. With school coming up rapidly on the horizon, I'd like for my house not to smell like cat ass. We'll see how the LitterMaid does when it gets here.
