I defense of cats at least they bury their crap. Unlike most people on the planet that can't even wipe their own ass.
:bigsilly: :bigsilly: :happyhappy: :mauslaff: 000hehehehe I bet you honestly believe that too! Here's some free advice, in a neighborhood where there a free roaming cats, always look in the grass before you step! Aside from being vindictive cats are really lazy too.
I don't believe in If anymore, If is for children.

Unburied cat poop is a territorial marker. I admit feral cats, or feral anything, is a problem.

My first cat was a sweetheart, but she never could actually bury her waste.  She could spend what seemed like hours in the litterbox scratching around, get out and the waste was STILL on top. 

My present cat, on the other hand, buries his waste as if it were gold.  Have to dig down deep to find it.

A litter box for humans might be an interesting idea.

Not really. It is called the Middle East.

And you have no selection for corncobs... Jussayin.
Nor pages from the Sears or MonkeyWard catelogs. Or is that just for outhouse use?

As with corncobs, just for outhouses. it seems... a failure attributable to the inferiority of modern plumbing. One thing you won't find in an outhouse is a plunger.

Regarding the poll:  I can't vote for any of the three choices.  I don't use a bidet and when I install a roll of toilet paper -- whichever way it ends up facing is where it stays.  I can't be bothered worrying about whether it's over or under.  I have more important things to do -- like taking my afternoon nap.

I believe the corncob thing is a myth started by some 18th Century comedian.  I have known a lot of old timers with generations of outhouses, and not one of them has ever said anything about the use of corncobs.  (Sears and Monkey Ward's cataologues, yes [I have used them personally], but corncobs, no.  Anyone who has handled a corncob would say that the idea of using it in lieu of paper is crazy.  Might as well propose sandpaper.)

I wouldn't know... though I have used magazines in the outhouse if the TP is gone.

I can tell you that out in the woods, counter to what one might assume, soft fuzzy leaves are usually a bad idea. stinging nettle as an example. Very, very bad idea.

and cats. No cats... Maybe a rabbit...

I have used sycamore leaves with wonderful results.  BTW, you ought to check out the toilet tissue tablets that you can get on Amazon.  I just got some.  They are nifty wipes for backpackers. 

Fourteen sturdy wipes will fit into one of those little tubes that hikers often use for keeping a small emergency supply of matches dry.  The bottom line, as they say, is that fourteen wipes occupy practically no space at all.

Thanks, but I don't carry buttwipe... Well, I DO, but not much, so I don't use it much... wet weather and emergencies...

 I just use grass or cedar bark or some such... if you know how to make a birds nest for lighting a fire, you don't need TP. Just miff the stuff till it's soft and downy, even more than you would for a fire,  and away you go... Then I ain't got to worry about counting squares to make sure I have enough to last.

Yeah. I had a sandbox as a kid, so that won't wash.

So did I but then, how could they print it on the sides? That'd be some damn advanced TP design.

For what its worth, I'm a bread bag twist & flipper.

Strangely, two of the earlier arguments with my spouse focused on:

(1) Position of toilet seat
(2) Toilet Paper sheet placement (over under discussed here)

0 for two with those wars.
