IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN

I TOOK THE DARE, IDYA #4, Part 2 at The Cat Realm
The contest winner was the wonderful Mr Chen who dared us each to do something fun and creative to help our environment. That is a great idya!
We asked the Zoolatry Human what we could do and she said here's what we already do: we recycle newspapers and magazines, and cans and bottles and cardboard boxes (Yikes... wait a minute Mom... we like to play in those boxes!). We do cold water washes and turn out lights and appliances we aren't using. We have a natural brown lawn -- unless it rains.
So I decided to make a compost pile. Having a compost pile keeps many things out of landfills. The Human says we can put in eggshells and coffee bean grounds. I wonder if we can put in the old litter from me and Maggy... and all the crunchies we don't eat cause the Humans are always trying "new" foods on us, most of which are quite yukky! I see where she threw some nip on the pile... no, no, no I say... not my nip! Well, we're going to have to google compost piles and find out what we can put in and what we cannot put in so we do it right!
And be sure to visit The Cat Realm and Mr Chen
to let them know what you do...
take the dare... we dare you!

  3. You are doing great! Mom hasn't been home long enough to help me figure out what to do. She leaves to go out of town again tomorrow, unless the gas scare keeps her at home.

    I have submitted my pictures for the Coalitition of Cats Against Cameras today - please come by and let me know if I am accepted.

    p.s. - our staff does not throw our used litter in the compost - they just throw it in the desert (organic wood pellets), they think the urine might be too harsh...
