Shopping for Oyen I
This is the current litter tray that Oyen use. Inexperience during my first buy (when I first decided to keep Oyen), I soon realize that this is a really bad choice.
Cats instintively cover their urine and feces, and during the process, litter may fly around. And that’s what happened here. My laundry area got covered with scattered litter. Looking at Marts blog entry about his Cik Tot, why didn’t I think of getting the litter tray with cover?
With the annoucement of 13th month salary (bonus lah tu) made by my MD last night, this is a perfect time for Oyen’s little shopping. Went to visit The Pet Family today.
And here are the things that I shop for Oyen today.
The first thing is this Cat Dome – the cat’s litter tray with cover. I quite like the design. Is that Oyen? Darn. The cat that is on the box really looks like Oyen.
Lets open the box, and see what’s inside. Oyen seem so exited with all the boxes and plastic bags that I brought home. He is the first one to jump into the opened box.
Let see how to assemble this, and……
….walla. Here’s the finished product. Looks more like a vacuum cleaner to me.
And let’s open the top cover. Neat!!! And Oyen is there as the model of the product again.
The second thing that I get is this Pet Litter Deodorant. The last litter that I get is not that quality. It doesn’t absorb the odour that much, or should I say, it doesn’t absorb odour at all. My laundry area started to get smelly from the litter tray.
It will be a waste if I want to change it now. I guess the temporarily solved this problem is to use this deodorant. Just sprinkle lightly, and mix with the litter.
The third thing is this scratching post. Well, I might not know where and when will sharpen the claw by scratching, but I guess I have this as one of the option. I hope my sofa and my bed is no longer a victim of Oyen’s claw.
And this is Oyen testing his new scratching post. He seems to enjoy it a lot.
Finally, is this grass. I used to watch cats eating grass, and I thought, what the heck that cat is doing.
But after I did some reading, cat eat grass as it acts as a natural emetic, that causes vomiting, as part of getting rid of hair builds up in the stomach. Because the cat’s tongue is covered with tiny, backward-facing hooks, the cat has no choice but to swallow all the loose hairs that come out during grooming.
And Oyen is house cat, and grass is not available to him naturally. So let’s plant some grass inside the house using this. And the instruction:
Anyone knows how to read Japanese?
