    Whoa...
    Unless you own a cat. Then you hang it so it hangs in the back.

    Tames and Steve are correct. This is just a cat toy. How sanitary is that?

    I think the trick is to not own a pet whose poops give you schizophrenia.

    Why would you give your barbecue a toy?

    Somehow, none of our cats has ever been enamored of it. Once or twice they've gotten into it, but never much and not often.

    I mean, it's more sanitary than having a damned useless animal defecate in a box in your house.....just sayin'

    Good Lord-some of my most controversial non-political opinions are about cats!

    Speaking of toilet paper, though, I believe that rinsing with water is a vastly superior method.

    A bakery near me is making toilet paper roll size cakes and decorating them to look like toilet paper......people are buying them so fast she has had to hire 2 people and the waiting list is so long folk have to order them and then it will take 2 weeks before they get one. Hopefully they are not trying to use it the same

    We're in a part of Colorado where a small yard is an acre. Therefore mice. Therefore cats are functional. They're also cute little monsters.

    Agreed on both points. We are essentially out in the woods, so the same issue with mice. I make a point of letting the two smaller cats up into the attic (oddly, the only place they actually seem to get along) from time to time. They are vicious predators, and keep rodents from taking up residence in there.

    Dude, we have cats for the same reason.
    They stay outside.
    Occasionally, one of the dogs kills one, or it gets dragged off by an owl, then we get another one.
    Inside, and in the immediate yard around the house, dogs do quite well for mice.
    And no pooping in a box in the house....that's just silly!

    Why not just get a pet owl? Cut out the middle man (cat).

    Although she only lived in our carport for four months, I really, really miss that cat. Great hunter, fun companion, but alas, the landlord said she had to go. Found her a great home with a good man, though, and she's living large right now.

    And everything she hunted and killed has come back, peeking around the corner as they do, no doubt saying "Is the f'ing Terminator gone?"123
