Fancy cat box vs the box it came in

We invited a couple of stray cats to join us a few months ago.

Daisy and her playful son Dandelion.

I decided they need a proper box to relax in and actually ordered a cat box.

The box it came in was also close to the right height and size.

Daisy says it might take several days to figure out which is her favorite.

Hi Anna, I picked up a copy of your 'The Ultimate Guide to Soil' and you say on page 100 'similarities between remineralization and mainstream, non-organic farming since both use chemical fertilizers.' and go on to suggest that Solomon's method of remineralization has the same affect on soil and soil biology as does conventional chemical farming. To be candid and in no way judgemental, this seems to me to be very misleading for the reader, and frankly, incorrect information. I have used Solomon's 'Complete Organic Fertilizer' and got very nutrient dense results. I also have worked with Dr. Elaine Ingham of the Soil Food Web fame, so I have a foot in two different camps, neither of which, I believe, tell the whole story. But to stick Solomon's methods in with the horrors of conventional chemical agriculture is, imo, way of the mark. Kind regards, Peter Serle
