Guess Whose Birthday It Was On Saturday?

Well, if it wasn't mine, why am I wearing this stupid hat and posing in front of Bella's birthday present?


It was really our cat, Bella's, 6th birthday (October 9th is the day Parental Unit found her in a Walgreens parking lot when she was just a wee kid of two months. The legend has it that she was hiding under the gigantic wheel of a truck, the man had just gotten back in and started the engine when Parental Unit screamed and bent down...little Ms. Prissy ran to her and jumped in her arms and the rest is my tortured history).

So here's what happened the other day: Parental Unit borrows a little party hat from our neighbor and tries to put it on Bella, at the same time posing her on top of the prize that she won at the recent BlogPaws conference: a really cool "Litter Robot" - an automatically cleaning litter box-see picture(s) above and below.


Now...you can imagine trying to convince little Ms. Prissy to: (a) wear a party hat, (b) stay on top of this box, and (c) celebrate her birthday (we did get treats for our efforts).

So here's the result: Bella with hat askew, trying to flee!


So what did Parental Unit do while she had the camera out? Yep, you guessed it-she put that dang hat on me and snapped away. Here I am after I've given up...


Now, we did want to tell you a bit about the "Litter Robot" in case you haven't heard about it. As you can see from the picture, the kitty enters her litter box from the dome -shaped structure, does her business, and then exactly 7 minutes after she departs, the "Robot" cleans the litter by sweeping the clumps to the waiting litter bag below: no fuss no muss, and no more cleaning out litter boxes! Just remove the biodegradable bag and toss. If you want to learn more about the Litter Robot, check out their website here: www.litter-robot.com

And let's end this birthday post with a picture of Ms. Prissy (I mean Bella) shortly after Parental Unit first brought her home.

Happy Birthday to Bella! That Litter Robot sounds awesome. I heard they have something like that for diapers now, too, I think it's called a Diaper Genie? You shove the diapers into a plastic thing (kind of like a larger Litter Robot), twist something, and keep going until it's full. You wind up with a huge string of encased dirty diapers that you never have to touch or smell. Kind of looks like a string of pearls.

I loved hearing the story of how Bella came to be your Torturer - sorry, Bocci!

Happy birthday to Bella & good job to you for being such a great sport.

My people wish they would win a fancy cat scoopy poopy box, that looks cool. Maybe it's really a space ship that will fly her away, BOL!

Nubbin wiggles,
