When I scoop out my cat's litter box, I practice some squats. After I finish scooping, I use a short-handled whisk broom and dustpan that I found at a dollar store to sweep up all of the litter that my cat has sprayed all over the tile floor. I do all of this while in a squatting position. By the time I am done, my cat's litter area looks great, and my legs feel the burn from the exercise!
Instead of spending hard earned cash on expensive kitty condo's make your own. Use boxes, paperbags, and toys to create your cats own little heaven. It's cheap and you can add or replace parts as you want with no additional cost.
When it comes to cat treats, I save money by buying them a different brand of cat food and offering a few kibbles as treats, The cats don't know the difference, and I save a ton over those tiny little pouches of treats.
