How long does it take an elephant to empty the tank?

How long does it take YOU dear reader to empty the tank?
A) 21 seconds
B) 2 minutes
C) 60 seconds
The correct answer to all 3 questions: 21 seconds!
While the volume of urine will vary dramatically from species to species it’s the length of the urethra and the time it take for urine to pass through it is what’s identical in just about every species of mammal.
Of particular interest to our customers who have a cat or two showing “litter box aversion” no wonder we can’t always catch them in the act to tell who’s doing it! With just 21 seconds for a cat to do their business surely can make it tough to figure out which in your multi cat household is doing it – no wonder, we often don’t know! They are quick so much so that we often don’t catch them in action.
Read more here. Fascinating facts about how much urine comes out of various species of mammals!
Hey kids and mothers – won’t this make a great science report for next year? Conduct your own experiments and present them to your class. You’ll get a lot of ooo’s and ah’s, and a lot of laughs! And probably a straight A for creativity and good science.
Dear Cat Faeries,
My cat’s favorite toys (yours!) are yucky and gross with saliva and other gunk from many months of love. Can I put them in the washing machine?
Love, Diane and the feline fur-kids
Dear Diane and Furry Friends,
Daphne speaking, feline cat toy aficionado and connoisseur…
WHAT?! Wash them? Goodness NO! Do you know long it took to get those beloved toys to smell pretty to a cat? We love to drool on them which makes them extra nice and adds to the heavenly scent of our catnip! But I understand if you feel they are looking a bit ragged.
Don’t put them in the washing machine or even soak them in a bowl of soapy water. You’ll ruin the catnip inside, you could get mold – eww! Dampen a wash cloth and give them a sponge bath. This will remove impacted cat fur, dust, and other ickies. They may still show saliva spots – but don’t worry, to us that’s beautiful!
Here are the top 5 most common names for cats (provided by a pet insurance company):

You are going to need a box of Kleenex for this story. In 2000 electrician Roza Katovitch suddenly lost her fiance to a heart aneurysm. Three days later her father died. This sent Roza into a tailspin which led to depression and eventually homelessness because she was not emotionally able to work.
Every day she would go to the cemetery where both men are buried to tend to their graves. And she would be there all day long. She got to know the animals who came around. There were skunks, birds, raccoons and of course, feral cats. Carolyn Jones staff writer for the San Francisco Chronicle will tell you the rest of Roza’s story in this article which ends well for Roza and Miss Tuxedo the cat, with great photos.
And yes, we noticed that her last name is KATovitch! Cats must be her destiny!
