Re: Managing Kittie Litter
The bigger the litter the better. Clay is out. The wood pellets work pretty good and the absorbing synthetic stuff isn't too bad (we had a jug stored as emergency backup). At some point you will lose the leisure to choose so bring plenty. But get used to having bits of it underfoot regardless. You can never seem to sweep enough. And it goes without saying you can't afford to be a lazy scooper.
We used a small open litter box for ease of access and ability to stuff it under the chart table. Not sure if that is recommended with three of the little monsters ;-) Get one of those non-skid mats. The litter box rarely moved an inch even when we were negligent about reefing.
Don't forget the cat amusement systems (although I suppose with three of them they can amuse themselves) and cat scratching posts. We wrapped the compression post with hemp.
Please, please, please, bite the bullet and both rig and actually practice a system for your cats to get back onboard. And consider lifejackets if you ever intend for them to be left alone on deck, even for a just a short while.
