Sleepy-time hijinks, part 2 #ChewyInfluencer

While craziness reigns in the Momma Kat household 24/7 - no time is that more true than in the evenings just before bed. The cats waiting for their wet food treat and being tortured, The Boy attempting to say 'good night' to the cats, inter-cat conflict ... there's a whole lot of running, name calling and nonsense. If you missed part one of this post, you may read it here: Sleepy-time hijinks, part 1.

MK: Momma Kat
BC: Bear Cat
EM: Ellie Mae

BC: Is it our food time yet?
MK: In a few minutes.
BC: You better not feed us THAT food again! If it can even be called FOOD.
MK: Come on Bear! It looks like the quality of food people eat. It looks so good! Gravy ... meat ... no vegetables ... what's not to like?
BC: You keep telling me how good it looks ... YOU eat it!

EM: Don't listen to him. He's just grumpy because he lost another bet.

BC: I did not!
EM: Oh, yes, you did.
MK: What bet?
BC: {AHEM}.
EM: Err ... bet? I didn't say anything about a ...
MK: {sigh} Bear, did you bet your cat tree away to Ellie again?
BC: Notice Momma said it was MY cat tree.
EM: Phht. You said it. WAS your cat tree. Momma, he lost it fair and square last time. He can't lose it AGAIN. 
BC: I can use the cat tree any time I want! I just choose not to. Been there. Done that. BOR-RING. Plus I'm not going to be on the same cat tree as HER.
EM: Hmph. Last night you BEGGED me to join you on the ottoman! Momma saw it!
BC: Phht. I was cold. You're warm. 
EM: Cold-BLOODED ... at least when one considers his fangs and claws.
MK: That was pretty cute. Bear looked all over for you and found you on the loveseat.
BC: I was cold!
EM: Then he sat there and stared at me until I jumped down.
BC: I. WAS. COLD!
MK: Next thing I know, you two are cuddled up on the ottoman TOGETHER.
BC: Yeh. Because we'd be snuggled up APART!
MK: It was one of those proud Momma moments.
BC: Considering that you claim pooping as a proud moment ... 
EM: You do announce it around here.
MK: I never said ...
BC: The other night? When I was cold?! Smellie jumped down off the ottoman first! Fine! I didn't want you up there ANYWAY.
EM: You told me you were done cuddling and that it was in my best interest to vanish!
BC: Oh, yeah. BLAME ME for LEAVING me. You've been taking logic lessons from the humans.
MK: At least you two were fighting over the ottoman last night. That's a nightly occurrence around here. You two run around the ottoman like nutsos and pounce at each other.

BC: She starts it!
EM: I do not! I just mind my own business on the ottoman and you whap me from the floor.
BC: And you whap me as I walk past.
MK: It's all fun and games ... until it's not.
BC: She whaps me as I walk past! I IGNORE her!
EM: And you try to knock me off the ottoman! EVERY. NIGHT.
BC: Like I could knock you anywhere. You're built like a hippo!
MK: BOTH OF YOU! Back to the bet and using the cat tree.
EM: Bear, you can use MY cat tree any time if you pay rent.
MK: I thought we agreed that bet was void.
EM: Well, yeah. The FIRST time. But he lost it to me again!
BC: Will you just SHUT UP?!?
EM: HEY! I should get SOMETHING out of your stupidity. 
BC: MY stupidity?! You came to live in MY house!
EM: If he wants to wager his wet food for a month, he should be ...
BC: SHHHH!
EM: Though my personal favorite was winning Momma's bed for a ...
BC: SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
MK: Is that why you haven't cuddled with me in bed recently, Bear? You bet exclusivity and Ellie won? 
BC: Blah blah blah. Like The Boy says, women should be seen and not heard.
EM: My Daddy doesn't say that!
MK: He doesn't.
BC: What you don't know ...
EM: You're just saying that because The Boy went to bed and we'd have to wake him to find out if he really said that.
MK: Yeah. We're not falling for that again.
BC: And Smellie calls ME stupid!
EM: You ARE stupid!
BC: Am not!
EM: Are too!
BC: Shut up!
EM: YOU shut up!
MK: Come on, you two!  It's time to address our second item of the month from Chewy.
BC: How convenient. You just want to save Smellie the mother of all smackdowns. 
EM: You couldn't smack me down if you were made of hands.
BC: Oh, shut up. At least we'll have some new food to try.
MK: Err ...
BC: It's not food?
MK: Ummm ...
BC: So it's something someone calls food, but you aren't so sure?
MK: Err ...

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat only shares information we believe would be of interest to our readers. The content is ours - neither Frisco nor Chewy are responsible for the contents of this post.

BC: All I see here is a box of ... wait a minute .... LITTER!?!? Really?!? AGAIN?!? You should be ashamed!

MK: Bear, you're picky. You don't eat like half the things I feed you.
BC: Phht. I should have the chance not to eat it! That's the whole point! I keep you in line by refusing food just to show I'm my own cat.
MK: That's ridiculous. If it's good food, you should eat it.
BC: That's for suck-ups with no self-control like a certain bus ... I mean ... sister ...
EM: Oh, shut up!
BC: What?! I'm just saying you eat everything.
EM: Because it tastes good!
BC: Have some self-control and turn your nose up to something JUST to prove that you don't HAVE to eat whatever Momma feeds you.
EM: And then you'll eat my food too!
BC: I won't do that ... err ... again. Besides, eating less will do wonders for your beachfront property.
EM: My what?
BC: Momma? Meet my back of disrespect. 

MK: We're already well acquainted. At least it's not your butt of ...
EM: Hahahahahahahahahaha.
BC: I'm protesting litter. I'm a glamorous and sexy boy - I deserve glamorous and sexy and not litter.
EM: Maybe Momma can buy you glitter to use in your litter box.
BC: Oh, SHUT UP! Who asked you?
MK: A few more pictures and then we can get the show on the road.
BC: You told me I wasn't allowed to put on that show anymore!
MK: What ...
BC: Duh duh duh duh.
EM: TAKE IT OFF! TAKE IT ALL OFF!
MK: Stop the cat calls!
EM: I'm a CAT! What kind of call am I supposed to make?!
MK: DO NOT encourage him!
BC: Too late.
MK: Let me try one more angle ...
BC: Holy crap monkies! How many pictures do you need of a box of litter?!? You act like we won the lottery or something!

MK: When considering litter, I look for tight clumping, little tracking and I prefer low dust and great odor control - but those are both secondary to clumping and not tracking. I know litter's not exactly glamorous ... but it is necessary. And a good litter makes for happy kitties. Ever Clean is a clay-based litter with an antimicrobial agent to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacterial and plant extracts that work to eliminate odors completely. Plus, Carbon Plus technology clumps tight and minimizes odors. My expectations are pretty high with this litter. 

{Pause}
MK: Time for the test ...
EM: TEST?! No one told me we'd have to take a test! I didn't even study! I'm going to flunk!
BC: Oh, brother.
EM: Bear, how do you cope with being a flunkie?
BC: How rude! Let me show you ...
MK: BEAR! ENOUGH!
BC: But she ...
MK: I don't care.
BC: Has anyone ever told you that you need counseling!?
EM: I want to try the new litter!
BC: What's wrong with you?!? You poop in one substance, you've pooped in them all. Only you girls notice the subtleties. 
EM: You want subtle ... you're a grade A jerk!
MK: Okay. Box filled.

BC: Get your head out of the litter box, Momma! Hahahahahahaha.
EM: I wanna try it! I wanna try it!
MK: Okay! Go!
EM: Ooooh. This litter is nice. I don't feel it sticking to my feet as much as other litters we've tried.
MK: Wait! Where are you going, Ellie? You said you were going to try the new litter!
EM: I did!
MK: Oh. Huh. Couldn't tell. Let's get a picture of the clump.

MK: Tight and hard clumps. We really won the lottery with this litter! Tight clumps, no odor, low tracking ... This litter is fantastic! No doubt one of the best we've tried!
BC: Fantastic? LITTER?!! Did you fall off a chair and hit your head again?
MK: You say that, but you're the first kitty around here to throw a fit when the litter box needs cleaning. Maybe this will make that a thing of the past.
BC: OR ... YOU COULD JUST SCOOP MY LITTER BOX MORE OFTEN!
MK: Bear, I can't just drop everything and get to the litter box ever time you use it. 
BC: Why not?
MK: Because I have other things to do!
BC: MORE IMPORTANT things? Fancy hotels have bathroom attendants ... why can't you be our potty attendant?
MK: Are you going to pay me?
BC: Err ... that's what litter box deposits are for.
MK: Come on, Bear. ESPECIALLY with two of you - it's hard to be there every time! That's why finding a good litter is important!
BC: What in the ... THIS DOESN'T BELONG IN HERE! Momma! You left the scoop in the litter box and I have to poop!
MK: Sorry, Bear. I wanted to get a good picture of the tight clumps.  
BC: All these pictures! Don't you dare take a picture of ...

MK: Okay! Okay! Anyway, beyond this litter, Chewy is easy to love: they have a wide selection of QUALITY pet products, freshness is guaranteed, and they offer fast shipping and easy returns on all orders. With orders over $49, one to two day shipping is FREE! After hearing so many bloggers talk about Chewy's fast shipping, I was eager to see the difference for myself ... and sure enough! FAST! Much faster than any other seller I've encountered. Though my favorite part is 24/7 customer service. How many times have I been up late at night shopping for cat supplies, had a question, but couldn't ask it because chat wasn't available?

Note: The Boy thinks Ever Clean is the best litter we've used. I agree. The price is higher than we'd like - but I'm no stranger to hunting sales so we might buy Ever Clean if we can find a price more comparable to other brands..

    1. That'd be too confusing! Though TECHNICALLY it's still chicken even after it comes out the back end ;) ~Bear Cat

  2. We purchased Ever Clean litter many years ago, buying the unscented box...but it still has a strong perfume odor! So, we sprinkle it into our usual litter, using it as a minor deodorant. We cannot have any strong smells like that in the house; the humans are allergic to it!

    1. Momma couldn't detect a scent even though it says it's fragranced. Momma gets headaches from scents that are too artificial. I don't know how to explain that some sweet floral scents cause me headaches, when others don't.

  9. Rosie likes Ellie Mae's idea of glitter litter. He he, just kidding. Litter is very important and this sounds like a good option!

  10. Touching each other back sides?! Whoa. I wouldn't let that get out if I were you, Bear. Stuff like that can destroy a tuff cat's cred.

  12. Hi Bear and Ellie Mae! And MommaKat and the Boy, too!

    Our Ava is a "kicker," so we're glad there's really not such a thing as glitter litter. :)

    But thanks for the thorough and thoughtful review of this litter. Good to know!

  13. I’ve never heard of this litter, but it does sound great! We have a litter we really like. But if for some reason we need to switch, I’ll definitely keep this one in mind. Hope you can find some good deals or coupons for it!

  17. Uh, furst of all Bear, we all laffed here when your mommy said she couldn't drop everythin' to clean the pawtty box every time and you asked why not. We laffed cuz our mommy said befur she read, why not. Awnty Kat, we gotta meow you're fallin' down on the job. We x'pext mommy to clean the pawtty box every time we use it. And we x'pect it to happen within minutes of it gettin' dirty. Oh, and she does it. She drops everythin'. Why do you think she hasn't had a hot cup of coffee in years? MOL Mommy had hoped we'd both use the 'lectric pawtty box every time so she;d never have to clean again. Hmmmpht we showed her. She still needs to scoop at least once a day. What else do you mommies have to do? Big hugs

    Luv ya'

  18. I haven't tried that litter before. Mom has me trying a new white colored litter. I don't know why humans keep trying to change our routines. I bet Mom will be trying me with the EverClean, too, before long. Winks.
