Necessity is a MOTHER! I was deep into petsitting over Thanksgiving, and found myself in need of a new tool. Specifically a tiny shovel to lift out the used, nonclumping cat litter from a litter box. Frugally speaking, nonclumping litter is excellent, and it may also be safer for kittens and cats than the clumping kind. In the past I might have dumped the whole box and replaced all the litter, but this kitty 'uses' only one end of the box. Brainstorming as quickly as I was able considering the turkey I had eaten, I looked around and found a small, flat, circular metal 'scoop' with a tiny ring for a handle. Yep, a lid from a 6-ounce cat food can! It worked wonderfully to lift out the wet litter from one end of the litterbox. It even got into the rounded corners of the box perfectly. Serendipity, for sure! Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, too!
