i have one cat (middle--he's 6) who tunnels trash. i'm vegetarian and always rinse any cans, but it doesn't matter. he turns it over and strews it all over the place. i got sick of it so i got rid of the ones by my desk, bathroom and bed, and only use one central trash bag in a pushcart thing. (i don't know how to describe it, it's the cart you see people carry their groceries in.) i'm like you: i can always think of something else to spend $50 on instead of a trash can but i sure would like one. it works i guess, he doesn't get down in it and string the trash out looking for gods-know-what.
right now i think i need a hamper because the same cat will pee on whatever is in a laundry basket if i leave it out. maybe i should throw away the basket? it's hard plastic and i've cleaned it with enzyme cleaner but last time i left it out, i had the stuff in a big trash bag inside it, and he peed on the trash bag LOL. but if i leave laundry out in just a trash bag, he doesn't do anything. i'm just sick of hiding my laundry.
