    You could use a 5 Gal. Homer Bucket if no cats. Spray the inside with propolis dissolved in alcohol to make it smell like home.

    JRG and I may try a midnight raid!

    Just joking!
    My brother lives in San Francisco, and his gf is always on him to get rid of the 2 dozen cat litter pails that he has!

    Thanks for the offer for kitty pails but I was only joking.

    Good news: Swarm decided it loved its new 5 star Hilton Hotel and has decided to remain! Yeah!

    Thanks again everyone!

    Alex,

    Ok, but do I spray it with Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, El Pandillo, etc.?

    Which do you recommend?
