Managing the Litter Box While Pregnant

*This post is brought to you by Litter-Robot, all opinions are my own*

One day, you get the bright idea to get a kitten a couple months before you give birth to your second child not realizing how much effort a kitten requires.

 

It had been almost 16 years since I had a kitten and at that point in my life, it wasn’t difficult to handle since I didn’t have any kids. She was my furbaby. But since that furbaby passed last November, I knew I wanted to get another cat that my children could grow up with as we had a lot of love to give still.

Cats have always been my pet of choice ever since I was a young tot. All you have to do is play with them, pet them, feed/water and change the cat box.

I hate cleaning the litter box. I mean, who really enjoys scooping clumps of cat feces and urine?

One thing I noticed about our new cat is that she ate more than what my 16-year-old chubby cat would eat in a day. This also meant that her urine and poo output was rampant. I would need to clean it a couple of times a day if I didn’t want it becoming too full or smelly, plus, being pregnant on top of that, I was worried about contracting toxoplasmosis while cleaning out the litter box.

Grandma’s Goop and Other Old-School Cleaning Tips That Still Work Today

 

Those were the days. And when it comes to some cleaning tips, they still should be.

No one wants to hear someone talk about how they “walked to school uphill in the snow both ways” when they were kids. Still, when your grandparents were young, they really didn’t have it as easy as we do in many ways. Cleaning, in particular, required more work with fewer tools. That’s why they mixed in a healthy dose of common sense and everyday items to help them get the jobs done.
