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.
I usually use the full box's that the canned cat food comes in and any other box's I can find. I also use the bags cat food comes in to make the crinkly tunnels that cats love. All you need to hold it together is some tape and patience!

1. Keep a freezer bag on the bicycle you take to work or for pleasure. This can be thrown down to dissuade dogs from attacking you if they approach you while riding. It can also help you to get out of icy spots that you see ahead by throwing some down before riding on those surfaces. 2. Prevent fires: Pour a layer of kitty litter in the bottom of your barbecue grill; this also creates a better draft for proper cooking. 3. Deodorize ashtrays: Just put some kitty litter in the bottom. 4, Store
clothing, linens, books, papers, etc. with 1/2 -1 cup of kitty litter tied up in a sock to prevent mustiness and mold. 5. Evict moles: Moles hate the smell of used kitty litter. Pour some into the entrance of one of their tunnels and watch the exodus! 6. Use kitty litter to clean up pet accidents.
I have a paper shredder which, when full, I empty and recycle and wondered one day; what the kitties might do if I 'substituted' all this 'good' paper for their kitty litter! They loved it! They seem to use the box more now than ever and there are no 'clumping' signs left on their little feet and I saved money by not buying commercial litter and my kitties now also, have something to read while in the bathroom!240
