Kitty Litter Cake for Halloween

Fun party idea for Halloween, a Kitty Litter Cake. Unique, but easy to make and assemble!


1 spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 white cake mix
2 large pkg vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared (I like Bird'sĀ® dessert mix)
1 large pkg vanilla sandwich cookies
green food coloring
12 small Tootsie RollsĀ®

1 new kitty litter pan
1 new plastic kitty litter pan liner
1 new pooper scooper

Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).

Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.

Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix until completely colored.

When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.

Line a new, clean kitty litter box. Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture into the litter box.

Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything -- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.

Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top; take one and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!

Does Your Cat Think Outside the (Litter) Box?

One of our grandkitties is definitely thinking outside of the litter box these days. Actually she is getting on in years and has some medical issues. In their worth-while read, Don't let your cat think outside the box , MSNBC.com explores the most common reasons cats stop using their litter box.

  • You changed litters because the new one was on sale.
  • You're using a scented litter.
  • You're not cleaning the box.
  • You're not scooping the box often enough.
  • Your cat doesn't like the location of the box.
  • You don't have enough boxes.
  • The box is too small or has a lid.
  • Cats can't tell us when they don't feel good, so they have to show us.


Experts recommend using an odor neutralizer every time you scoop, such as Simple Solutions 10627 Cat Stain & Odor Remover

If nothing works, we have come full circle in this post. Perhaps your kitty has a medical problem that needs to be addressed by your vet.

Home Marketing for Pet Owners

Little Pink House of Cats

As much as we all love our pets, we know they take a toll on the condition of our home. Their presence unfortunately can actually lower the sales price or even quash a deal. When your home is for sale on the market, you want to set the stage to create buyer interest within a reasonable time period and generate a good offer. How our pets affect the showings is a factor that must be taken into account. Here a some possible issues to confront ahead of time:

Allergies--A home rife with animal hair and dander can spell misery for an allergic buyer or their real estate agent. An affected person will have no choice but to turn on their heel and leave. Don't expect an offer.

Odors and Stains--Pet urine, especially cat, and stains on walls, carpeting, furniture, under floorboards can put off a potential buyer. There are numerous products to deal with these smells and stains. Even if you aren't selling your home now, best to deal immediately with any accidents. In the event of an offer, which could easily be lowball, it most likely will be a seller expense to remedy the pet odor problem prior to closing.

We have featured some helpful products in prior posts (here and here). A tool such as the Spot Spotter Ultraviolet Urine Detector by Simple Solution will help you to detect the source of pet odors.



* Battery-operated urine detector helps identify the source of pet odors
* Works on carpeting, wood flooring, concrete, tile, upholstery, and other surfaces
* Black light bulb lasts up to 5,000 hours on average
* Runs on 8 AA batteries or a 12v DC adapter (not included)
* Measures approximately 3 by 1 by 12 inches

Showings--If at all possible, be prepeared to leave the home with your pet during all showings. If you cannot remove the pet, try to constrain them in the cage or perhaps in an enclosed area such as a screened porch. Some people shut their pet in a bedroom or study during a showing, but then of course the buyer is prevented from seeing part of the home and may wonder what's up. Chance of offer reduced.

Our Pets Skoop-N-Pak


We like this idea--never clean the pooper scooper again. Here's how it works. Load the bags inside the Skoop-N-Pak. Fold the bag around scoop and open the bag inside. Then squeeze the handles open, scoop up the mess, tie a knot and dispose. Your hands never come in contact with the waste. Clips to belt or backpack. Replacement bags sold separately.

Find Skoop-N-Pak at Amazon.

Bird Cage Cleaners--Quick Clean & Poop Off Bird Wipes

When visiting pet stores, we are often dismayed by the filthy environment the birds live in. More often than not, their drinking water is murky and polluted--unnecessary since changing water bowls takes seconds. Keeping the birds' living area clean is essential to their good health. As the owner of birds, we know first-hand the continual mess they make. It takes a fair amount of work keeping their cages clean. That's life with birds!


Quick Clean dissolves fresh or dried on bird droppings, and deodorizes leaving a clean, orange aroma. It also softens fruit or seed droppings, nectar, bugs, and vegetable matter. It is purportedly safe on most color-fast fabrics and carpets, but manufacturer recommends testing a small area first for discoloration to be on the safe side.

If you use a spray to clean the cage and other areas of your home, smart to use a non-scratch cleaning pad. The finish on some bird cages is easily marred. It may be quicker and easier to whip out Poop-Off Bird Poop Anywhere Wipes (2-Pack). These wipes, 6" X 7.9", are pre-moistened with Poop-Off Bird Poop Remover, which are non-toxic and biodegradable.


Also available are spray bottles Poop-Off Bird Poop Remover (32 oz. 2-Pack)
and jug Poop-Off Bird Poop Remover (1 Gallon).

Intriguing idea. The PETaPOTTY system provides a self-draining patch of grass inside your home (or designated area) for your pup to do his or her business. Sounds like a great tool for housebreaking your puppy! In any event the PETaPOTTY provides your dog with its own place to be "good doggie", and/or an area for other pets that like grass.

The PETaPOTTY has an easily-accessible concealed trap pan for collection of liquids for no-hassle cleaning. Might work for those times you are late getting home....For dogs 110 lbs or less.

Dimensions: 34 x 34 x 7 inches ; 20 pounds

Ships from and sold by Seven Sales.

Odoban Odor Remover -- Review

Clean Control Corporation, manufacturer of OdoBan cleaning products, recently launched a new line of OdoBan Pet products for the consumer market. The OdoBan Pet line includes two products that help clean, deodorize and eliminate pet stains and odors. OdoBan cleanings products have been available on Amazon, but in quantities more suited for commercial use (case of 4 one-gallon jugs). This new OdoBan Pet line is packaged in 24 oz plastic bottles with a spray/stream attachment for more mainsteam household use.


The Ready-to-Use Odor Eliminator cleans, disinfects and deodorizes pet stains. It also kills 99.99 percent of germs associated with odors and is effective against animal and pet viruses such as Avian Influenza virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis virus, Pseudorabies virus, Canine Distemper virus and Newcastle's Disease among others.

The Odor & Stain Carpet Pretreatment spray is another product in the line that removes and eliminates pet stains and odors from carpets, fabrics and upholstery. It uses an exclusive enzyme formula that penetrates tough protein stains typically associated with pets and animals.


At Super Cool Pets we tried both these fabulous products and can certainly recommend them. The Odor and Stain Remover is extremely effective, lifting long-term mystery spots from carpets. We plan to use it liberally around the house on furniture, floors and laundry as well.

The Odor Eliminator works immediately and leaves a fresh clean smell. We are definitely bacteria-phobic around here, so we like the germ-killing feature. These products clean, disinfect and and deodorize with one spray and wipe. They are not only effective against pet accidents, but human ones too. Housebreaking, potty-training, vomit, mud, spills--handles it all!

OdoBan Pet products are certainly competitively priced at $3.88 a 24-oz bottle. For more information visit www.odoban.com. OdoBan's new pet products are available exclusively at Walmart Stores Nationwide..
