We've discussed this before. Yes, there is a reason that the book/magazine/newspaper that you left in the bathroom is in my litterbox.
Sometimes dropping that 7 pounder takes a little time, and just like you, I like to read to pass the time away.
It's either that, or I start grabbing things out of the trash and shred them while I'm otherwise occupied. I don't mind doing that, you know. There are some very shredable things in the trash, things that make wonderful and creative decorations.
Magazines in the box, or Devine Feline Design. Your choice.
