As I was reminiscing over posts from years past, I stumbled across one of my old favorite Wednesday traditions, Wordless Wednesday. I saw the most creative expressions from my then 3 year old little boy and ridiculous billboards that make me laugh even now.
But now we have Instagram to capture all of that on a regular basis. So Wednesdays focus on one thing only for me: TRASH NIGHT.
Our trash pickup is Thursday morning so Wednesday night sends my household into a tizzy to collect all of the trash including… the remains from the litter box.
If there is one task I absolutely detest, despise, and loathe, it would be cleaning the litter box. I must really love my cats to do that. Especially on Wednesdays. That’s when, no matter what, I have to clean those awful, smelly, dusty litter boxes. And that’s when I’m afflicted with the Stank Face.
At least that’s what Tidy Cat is calling it.
Stank Face (stāNGk fās) n.: The universal expression of disgust often caused by litter box odor. Stank Face indiscriminately strikes cat lovers, friends and family alike, typically in the comfort of their own home. Symptoms include watery eyes, feeling like you’ve lost control of your face, crinkled nose, curled lip, contorted mouth and, in extreme cases, involuntary gagging.
How do you alleviate this condition? I have a few suggestions.
- Get your husband to do the dirty work (this is my favorite solution).
- Toilet train your cats (yes, it can be done).
- Teach them to clean up after themselves. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
- Mask the problem.
That’s what I try to do when Wednesday rolls around. All this does is avoid the real problem. THE LITTER!
If you or someone you love has experienced this “stank face,” you might want to try one additional solution.
There’s new Tidy Cats litter with TidyLock™ Protection, which better absorbs liquids and features an improved deodorizing system that neutralizes odors to stop litter box stank.
The best part is that this TidyLock Protection is available in the Light Weight (which I use loyally) and traditional versions of the 24/7 and Instant Action clumping litters.
Proof that it works? My Stank Face has officially become a Tidy Face.
