Our Very Own Modkat
Percy: Hey, we have a new box.
Cyndi: It doesn't look like cardboard. Wonder what it's for?
Percy: I don't know. It has a shovel. Maybe it's for gardening.
Sam: It has air holes. Maybe it's a jail for Buddy.
Cyndi: What did Buddy do?
Sam: He lost some weight, so the other day while Jan was vacuuming, he squeezed himself around the wooden barrier Jan built to keep us dogs out of the cat boxes.
Cyndi: Oh, I remember that. He got stuck and couldn't get back out. He started whining, so Jan caught him red-pawed.
Sam: And Buddy is still in the doghouse.
Percy: If you two had read the packing slip, you would know this isn't a jail for Buddy. It's a Modkat Litter Box for us cats. Guess Jan thinks we're going to test it.
Sam: A litter box? You mean it's just for you cats?
Percy: Yes, but look at the size of that opening and then look at the size of Rusty. Do you think he can fit through it?
Cyndi: Well, if Buddy could get past that barrier .... But we better make sure. Percy, where's the tape measurer?
Buddy: Hey, if you remember I graduated from medical school when Jan had that splinter under her fingernail. If he's too big to fit through the hole, I can always perform surgery to make him fit. Rusty, I'll just need you to sign a few pre-surgical forms ... Rusty? Hey, where did you all go?
