Don't leave pails of blasting sand uncovered where the cats can do what cats do. Fortunately they didn't, but I had to sift the top few inches to be sure.
Ha ha ha! That's a good one, Steve.
You have a dilemma there, get rid of the cats or fight the mice and rat problem. Good luck.
Dilemma? Sounds like he just needs to put the lids back on. Or maybe a piece of ply-wood with a weight on it. =)
"Time to sandblast something..."
I hate to think what kind of mess my kids would make if I left uncovered buckets of sand laying around the shop.
Judging by the little paw prints, it looks as if, at least, one cat made a good faith effort to investigate the buckets, but realized the aiming area was too small to contain the deposit and went elsewhere. Steve would probably not have been so lucky had he had his sand in a wider mouthed bucket. LOL! Jim Patrick
Yep,blasting with cat booboo would make for a crappy finish!
I like to have a few cats and nice big rat snakes around, for the reason that Bob mentioned. I usually keep the sand covered. Just forgot this time.
I keep my sandblast sand in the buckets I used to buy kitty litter in. The lids are attached and hinged.
Now if I could just get the sand blasters to work right. (Cheap Harbor Freight stuff)
Thank you Steve J, and Mack C, for the laughs!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Steve, You're the cat's meow.
Just train the cats to do a number 1 rather than a number 2. Then use the stuff. Saves time: blast the parts clean and "metal prep" them at the same time! (depending on the cat, you results may vary) :-)
Cat poop is easier to sift out than mouse poop
Boy, we've got some real poop experts here.
