One thing: the calendar is amazing, but if you post it in your bathroom, it may start to crease or wrinkle a little from shower steam after a while. I would put it on your fridge. It's fun to look at anyway --
*First I resisted because i thought it was unrealistic. Then I resisted because I heard some incorrect information about the environmental impact of toilet-trained cats -- some bloggers were saying that cat doodoo in the toilet puts toxins in the water system that wouldn't otherwise be there...but there't a HUGE difference between flushed *old* doodoo, that's been exposed to the air (bad idea -- but almost everyone with a litterbox does this!) vs. CATS DOING IT IN THE TOILET which is awesome and much more environmentally sound than putting toxic doodoo in our landfills!!! CAT OWNERS ARISE AND AWAKE! This is our next enlightenment.
But immediately we recognize that DiCarlo has something else for us. A pair of seductive characters that remind us very cleverly, and charmingly, of the conflicting tendencies in human addictions. If you don't have cats, you'll wish you did. If you do have cats -- well, don't read this book around them; they'll see it in your face that you wish you had *these* cats. The language and the illustrations are part of the addiction, I think ... A.A. Milne comes to mind.
This isn't really a book about animals though, it's a marvellous little poem of words and image. Perhaps it would be too much to say that it's a microcosm of post-humanist philosophy. Ok, yeah, that's too much. But I predict that like Pooh, but maybe in a more kitschy way, "Kick Litter" will sprout a number of imitators, and eventually a fondness for spin-offs that find the stuff of life in these admirable and noble little self-help characters.
really struggling with their "addiction to litter."
I bought one for my Grandmother-in-law, and she loved it, too. She's kicking herself for not helping her cats "kick litter" sooner!
Colorfully rendered, it actually shows you, step-by-step, the way you can train your cats to bypass the traditional litter box and "use the bathroom" to do their "business." This removes one of the most unpleasant chores relating to owning a cat and thereby eliminates odors too.
If you own a cat or have a cat lover as a friend or companion, you will get a kick out of "Kick Litter" and may even make your life easier, should you choose to accept its mission. Your cat will eventually thank you too.
