My girlfriend put cat litter on the ice last year because she heard on the news that people should carry it in their cars for traction along with other items in a safety kit. she noticed that the side walk in front of our house was coated with ice, so she spread cat litter. People need to be aware that most cat litter is made of clay, ( bentonite)( commonly use by well drillers as a sealing agent to hold back serface water and to control cave in while drilling) that when wet, is slipperier then ice. I found this out the hard way. Plus, It is way hard to get rid of. You may think you cleaned it all up, but if it gets wet again an again an again, I remains a hidden booby trap for those that walk or drive on it. Please beware of the type cat litter you use for traction.. Sand is much much better. trust me.

I an't never had too much fun!!!!!!!!! How about you folks? Come on play with me? I got your back. Trust me. Ice comes in clumps. Cats on the other hand, are always on the prowl. Justice what do you think?
