The Hunting of the Snark

Bury it and forget about it

I cleaned out Möbius’s litter box on Thursday. This is a chore that I really dread, although I’m not sure exactly why. It only takes about ten minutes, and it’s not any ickier than the everyday scooping out of the contents.

Really, I ought to be glad there is no such thing as a Cat Fouling Order. Like they could enforce that. Can you imagine trying to follow a feline around with a pooper scooper? Sounds masochistic. And I suppose the authorities have worked out that even if they found the cat droppings, there would really be no way of identifying the animal responsible, so no way of fining the owner.

Which reminds me. Giving some thought to a cat’s instinct for covering up its Business, I think it’s a matter of plausible deniability:

‘What cat poo? Why do you think I had anything to do with it? It was buried over there, could have been there for years, as far as you know. You got nothin’ on me.’

A dog’s refreshing honesty or a cat’s convenient dismissal: tough choice.
