Recently we moved to the country and for a variety of country reasons, I didn't want our cat Atticus venturing outside (ticks, snakes, disease, wild dogs, backyard chickens, environmental damage). But as Atticus is a poos-outside cat and I like it that way, I wasn't too keen about cleaning up kitty litter for the rest of my life (sigh). Happily, one of my Facebook friends shared that their cat had done their first poo into the toilet and intrigued, I internet searched how to achieve this. And achieve it we did!

So that when you have company come over, they (and you!) don't have to stare at cat poop. Hell, with some of these products, your guests may not even know they're looking or even sitting on a cat box.
With the warm weather quickly approaching, I'm getting more and more concerned about my cat accidentally getting out or figuring out how the screen door works. I've looked online and found dozens of reasons why you should consider keeping your cat indoors during the summer, but no suggestions on how to do that. Does anyone have any suggestions or hacks for keeping curious creatures inside?
The rental that we have has vertical blinds on every window and door covering. I'm terrified of them being destroyed by our two seven-month-old kittens. Have you faced this situation, and what did you do about kitten-protecting vertical blinds?
