My first attempt with making compost was with vermicomposting. Vermicomposting means using red warms to digest your kitchen scraps.

The "Warm box" is a great idea, enabling the warms to migrate to the to the newest food source when all scraps on the bottom tray are digested.

Purchasing a small number of red warms, I had too much kitchen scraps for the warms to digest efficiently. A lot more warms were needed for that.

Being a cat lover, I never stopped to think about the quantity of water they drink.

I used to think that animals drink water when they are thirsty and that the quantity they drink, is what they phisically need..unlike me preferring coffee or sweet drinks over water.

One fresh water bowl at home and one in the back yard were enough I thought.

As it turns out that about a third of household cats suffer at one point from kidney problems and that kidney disease can be caused by dehydration.
