In an attempt to be more ecologically responsible, I recently bought a bag of corn-based cat litter. I had read an alarming article on the down-sides of clay-based clumping cat litter, and wanted to try some alternatives.
Cat litter manufacturers advise you to only add a small amount of new product to your cats' boxes, so that the cats don't freak out and reject the new stuff. Seems like good advice, right?
About an hour after scooping out the cat box and mixing in the new corn litter, we heard a strange sound. Could it be? No....that would be too horrible for words....
Sure enough, there was our own Mister Firdusi with his face in the litterbox, happily munching away. Thankfully, a lot of yelling on my part made him lose interest, and we didn't have to rush him to the veterinarians for emergency stomach surgery.
