Melissa Sessions VanDyke started up a GoFundMe page to help pay for vet expenses for a mother cat hit by a car. The cat was given to her to look after by a woman who is pcsing (transferring to a new military base) and thus, can no longer look after this kitty family.

Day 24: Recycled Plastic Litter BoxesThe 30-Day Green Cat Challenge

Given the low-tech purpose that litter boxes serve, it’s surprising that they aren’t all made from 100% recycled plastic.  In fact, I could only find one litter box that used recycled materials.  This just seems wrong to me.  I also found a lot of companies greenwashing their litter boxes to claim that they offer eco-friendlyContinue Reading
