Sorry local cats, I've finally gotten around to cleaning and removing the sand from our sandbox and starting fresh! We accidentally left the lid off Clara's turtle sandbox last summer for about a week and of course, stray cats used it as a potty. I scooped out the old sand and scrubbed the whole thing well with vinegar. I bought 2 new bags of play sand at Walmart for $2.97 a piece.
Now we just have to wait for the sand to dry and I'll let Clara test it out! This ol' turtle has been good to us. We actually got it off craigslist for $10 with sand included! I think it's $35 brand new at Walmart. We are ready for Spring!
