Before he came home, but when we knew we were getting a cat, I had it in my mind that we should get The World's Most Expensive Litter Box. I even convinced H. that we should do this - that we should pay almost $200 for this litter box. I know! I know what you're thinking! I'm kind of embarrassed to even admit that I entertained this idea. But it is a beauty:
