BAD Human! Clean up your mess!Let's talk about making messes - you humans complain endlessly if we make a small pee stain on your carpet, you even complain about the smell of our litter box when you TOLD us to pee there! But what about your human messes?
We're not talking about your piles of dirty laundry (we'll play in them) or about the dirty dishes stacked in the sink. You humans are messing up our whole world! You are ruining wildlife habitats all over the planet, spilling oil slicks across the oceans, and poisoning lakes and rivers too. Stop making such a fuss about your blasted carpet and start cleaning up the stuff that matters!
We kill things, yes - we kill mice, insects, birds and squirrels sometimes too. But we kill them one at a time - you humans kill of whole species! It wasn't a cat that killed the last Do-Do bird was it?
So next time you humans want to freak-out about a little mess on your precious carpet, take a moment to think about larger messes. While you're doing your cute little stain removal dance with the wet rags and the dry rags and the baking soda, think about something you can do for the whole environment. Plant a tree, or compost at home, or pick up some trash in a public green-space. Worry a bit more about your planet, and a bit less about your carpet please!
...ways humans can clean up their mess
Composting at homeMany municipalities have composting programs, but shipping your waste to a centralized composting centre has disadvantages. Composting at home is fun and easy - read more:

We have a worm-composter, and that's even more fun than back-yard composting - more info: www.cathyscomposters.com/
