Cats WILL use a recycled litter box!

Questions I am asked frequently are "Will a cat use a litter box another cat has used
and is it sanitary?"
The answer to both questions is "Definitely". While I won't show a used litter box actually in use:), I do foster cats and have never purchased a new one. I do spend
quite a bit of time soaking litter boxes in clorox and then in vinegar. I have never had a cat balk at using a used one. I also make sure not to use or sell one that is not in good shape in the first place.
Covered litter boxes usually cost 10.00-12.00 at Pet Stuff Resale.

Heartworms are SO preventable say these chihuahuas

Both of these precious babies came into a shelter with heartworms. As small as they both are, the treatment is much harder on them, more expensive and more time consuming.
Skeeter on the left also has a grade 4 heart murmur, common in heartworm positive dogs, which

makes his treatment even trickier. Rica on the right came in from a backyard breeder of another

breed, which just compounds this felony.

They both wanted the camera to go away in the first picture, but with a little patience, I was able to get a wary shot of them. Their cooperation bolted the second this photo was snapped!

Houston is the number one market in the United States of the nasty(but necessary) heartworm treatment, Immiticide. I would love to see Houston lose that negative
