I tried out a space-age automatic cleaning kitty litter box to see if it was worth the hype

I own two kitties who love to crap. All the time. I recently got the chance to try out a product I'd been eyeballing FOREVER: a Litter-Robot! Yep, one of those fancy-pants automated litter box cleaning machines. Plus it's the really nice kind that isn't cheap and it shows.

Human-toilet training my cat

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).

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!
