is about one cat watching another (see below).
A long line of
1820 cats, so far. The very first
Infinaut is Frankie,
seen at left admiring a flower. He is (was) the
owner of Paul Hamilton. In addition, the ICP also offers all KINDs
of other cat-related diversions every day like comics,
art, and videos. Check 'em out!
If you'd like to add
your own fuzzy friend to the Infinite

just take a picture of your kitty watching Puma, below, and email it
to me. It's just that easy.

that litter box clean.
by Jessica Booth
If you have a cat, especially more than one of them, then
you already know that cleaning their litter box is the biggest
downside to owning them. Sure, it's beyond frustrating when
they scratch up your favorite chair, and yeah, their food
smells pretty awful. But these annoyances don't really compare
to getting on your hands and knees and scooping their waste
out of a small box, trying to breathe clean air without making
yourself gag in the process. It's gross, it smells, and it
feels quite unsanitary — but it has to get done, and
so, as a cat owner, you suck it up and do it. And if you
don't do it often enough? There are some pretty gross things
that happen if you don't change a cat's litter box.
You might wonder how long it's safe to go without changing
the litter box. However, it's better to get into the habit
of cleaning their box regularly, at least twice a week, more
if you have several cats. For one thing, if the box doesn't
get cleaned regularly, it's going to smell bad. Like, first
thing that hits you when you walk in the house kind of bad.
And unfortunately, that's the least of your worries. Not
changing the litter box can lead to some serious illnesses,
not just for your cat, but for you as well. Check out some
of the things that can happen when you let the box go for
too long, and I promise it will never happen again.
UTI And Other Bladder Problems
For the most part, cats are very clean animals who like their
surroundings to also be clean. If their litter box is full
and super dirty, they aren't going to go in there to do their
business, even if they really need to. One of two things
will happen: they'll go somewhere else, or they'll hold it
in until the box is clean. If they do the latter, that can
lead to some serious issues, like a UTI, bladder infection,
or kidney problems.
For humans, bladder issues are obnoxious, but not too serious.
For cats, they're a big deal. When a cat has a small bladder
issue, it can very quickly become a bigger issue, like a
blockage or failure that could result in the need for surgery
and even death.
Overexposure To Ammonia For Humans
A dirty litter box isn't just hazardous to a cat, it can
also be bad for you or whoever is cleaning it. One negative
thing that can happen is an overexposure to ammonia, which
gets produced as urine and feces accumulates. Ammonia is
a toxic gas that can lead to mild problems like headaches
or nausea, or something more serious, like pneumonia.
Spreading Of Bacterial Infections
Bacterial infections can pass through cat feces to humans,
one of them being cat scratch fever. It's also known as bartonellosis,
and is one of the most recognized zoonotic diseases (diseases
that can be passed from animals to humans) associated with
cats. This can result in fatigue, headaches, body aches,
and a fever.
Parasite Transfer To Humans
Parasites are another icky thing that can be passed onto
you from a filthy litter box. The scariest one would be Toxoplasma
gondii, which can produce fever-like symptoms and has even
been linked to increased suicidal thoughts and tendencies.
These parasites can also get into your cat as well, making
the animal sick.
Salmonella isn't only transmitted through food - you can
get it from dirty litter boxes. E.coli can also be found
in there. Don't let it build up!
If your cat uses a dirty litter box too much, it can end
up contracting fungal infections like ringworm or hookworm.
And then, if you're in contact with an infected cat, it can
easily pass to you. Avoid that with regular cleaning!
Accidents Around The House
A disease or parasite might be more serious than bathroom
accidents, but still: no one enjoys coming home to a puddle
of cat pee on their rug (the smell never goes away). Your
cat will probably find somewhere else to go to the bathroom,
and once they pick a spot, it can be really hard to get them
away from it.

in any intelligent way I decided to post them alphabetically.
It's not a perfect system, as those of you of Polish descent

keep the names straight.
