Switching things up

Yep, it is time to switch Poppy’s puppies to the regular litter box. They needed the change as I can’t keep up with the amount of urine they are putting out even changing the box twice a day. Thankfully, from 0-4 weeks (approximately) mom takes care of the other nasty part. (Sorry for sharing that tidbit 😛 ) With the new box there is now a layer of pine pellets on the bottom to absorb the liquid waste. And when they do little poops it can easily be scooped out with a cat litter scoop.

I like to get them introduced to this new litter box while they are in the smaller puppy pen. Soon they’ll be moving upstairs to the puppy room and a bigger puppy pen. I like to know that they understand this new litter box before we move them to a bigger space.


And now, I’ll switch from the fluffy bed to a fuzzy blanket. The pellets (that get knocked out of the litter box) are really hard to get out of the beds. But the shake off they blankets easily.

    It is funny that they think their new pellet filled litter box becomes a cool place to chill out.
