New, Big, Shiney

Mum came home with a big box tonight. Not sure I like what is in it, but mum says she is happy and hope this solves a problem.
It is tall, but not shiney enough to see myself.
It has a spot on the top that you push and then the top pops open. Mum has no problem pushing the top, but I can't reach it.
Once the top is open you can see a white bag that will hold stuff that mum will toss away.
She put it in the middle of the kitchen floor for now as the old trash holder is still in its spot.
Mum, you mean you don't like coming home to this? I am not happy that I probably won't be able to get into the trash anymore! This is totally not fair to me. I like to check the trash out for stuff to chew on.

Derby's Mum: I was getting tired of coming home to having the trash pulled over nearly every day. Derby will chew on practically anything, then yaks up. I was concerned that he might actually swallow something. After Misty's experience this past weekend pushed me to go shopping and get a trash container, that hopefully is "Derby proof".

I hope it's heavy. One of the cats who came before used to knock over the garbage similar to that one--of course most of the time the lid stayed shut but it was still knocked over and every now and again if it were very full food scraps would pop out... hence the reason it was regularly pulled over.

Well that does seem rather unfair ;) But it's for your own good ... you're lucky to have such a good mommy!

I think that would be a very good trash can.
Sometimes, we just really need that kind~!! The heavy kind.

Eric and Flynn said...

Hmmm, we're wondering if it really is Derby proof. Depends who is most determined.

I think your Mommy loves you very much!

We think Stainless Steel ought to be Derby-proof!

That is quite a handsome trash can. My fur cousin Roxy is notorious for getting into the trash, so her Mom actually keeps the trash can on the side porch with the door closed so Roxy can't tip it over and rummage through everything. She'll eat anything in there.

Wow! That is pretty super duper!!!!!!

Our mom had the same issue with Ferris, he likes to dumpster dive, so she had to get a can with a lid too!!

Well Derby, we kind of have to agree with your mum on this one. It might be fun and adventurous to pull down & search thru the old can but we don't want to have another emergency or a sick cat - meaning you if something happens.

Mom is threatening to get something like that here too! No fair Derby's mum, you gave her an idea!

There were lots of chairs this weekend for turkey dinner, and one ended up near the trash can. My sisfur Cloudybutt decided to just sit on the chair and start nomming right out of the can like she thought it was a food bowl! Mom didn't like that AT ALL!

Derby, sometimes safety is more important than having fun digging in the trash!

PB 'n J said...

Oh no! The trash has been Derby proofed! We've always had a lidded can, Mommy hates dealing with the mess we love to make :-)

Darn it Derby!! Trash picking is the most fun activity! We have a trashcan like your new one too. I've tried and tried to get in there but sometimes I'm lucky and a tidbit will be hanging out :).

Derby, I was feeling bad for you, until I read your Mum's reasons. I think it's a good thing she brought that home.

Laila and Minchie said...

That is one cool trash can! Will it be Derby proof? Time will tell.

The Island Cats said...

Just don't fall into this shiney thing, Derby...it looks like a pain to get out...

William said...

There have got to be other things to check out besides the trash, D. This new addition is just meant to keep you safe.

Angus Mhor said...

Derby, Just don't do it, buddy. There's other good stuff to check out, and we'd sure hate you to end up at the V-E-T! Here's hopin' this one's Derby-proof!

Derby, our brother Max at the Bridge used to get into Momma's trash can too! She put bricks in the bottom of it, and then he couldn't knock it over anymore! She has gone thru a few trash cans since Maxter, but still keeps the bricks in it, and we haven't tried messing with it! It does look like fun, but better safe than sorry ... hee hee!

Very cool Derbs. It's better to be safe than sorry.

They always have to spoil our fun!

Heh...Derby doood at least it gives you something to do when you're home alone. DEFEAT THE CAN!!!

Mom and Dad ended up with a Simple Human trash can (fitting name, huh?) with a foot pedal to open the lid. I'm a big fan of trash, too, and like to chew plastic bags, so they had to do something to keep us out of the trash. Now the trash can with the lid does make a good step to get on the counter.

Since you aan't get the in the garbage anymore, which is a good thing, maybe your mum will buy you flowers.
