    Did you have it in your front pocket?

    Do you put your phone in the pocket screen in toward your leg or out away from it?

    It seems to me that if you put the screen toward your leg that the pressure of tight fitting jeans wouldn't be able to bend the phone.

    This thread smells a lot like my cat's litterbox right before I clean it.

    My phone bent (and then some).

    But I put it on the bottom of a sledge hammer while I was ripping up some concrete.

    Tight fitting jeans don't cause a phone to bend. :rolleyes:

    OMG is that not the worst smell? What in the world is up with that ****? No litter actually lives up to the claims that you'll never smell it even after 3 days. After 3 days, things are getting real up in there and I only have one ******* cat.


    Oh OP...seriously man? Let's just talk about cat litter boxes instead. It's a much more compelling topic and the problems with one have nothing to do with skinny jeans.

    I feel bad for any cat who only gets their box scooped every 3 days!

    After one day my cat's box looks like a battlefield.

    Same here and I got 4 male cats can make a 3' x 4' littler box also look like a battlefield! Twice a day clean in normal, once a day is a must!

    As you should! Sometimes I'm not home for 3 days so we both manage. After 3 days though, yup...gross.
    It is tended to nearly daily. Every other day at the longest. That whole litter genie thing makes it very easy.

    haha yikes. I'll likely never have another cat. Not for any other reason than I just don't see myself owning another.

    Many reports of bent iPhones say otherwise.

    This has turned out to one of the better threads on the iphone section of this forum. I too let my cat out and rarely have to empty the litter tray.

    Now what was the op wanting to know, o yes, bending phones. Don't know anything about this, mines not yet bent.

    I think cats live long if you can keep them as indoor cats - but my past cats have so much loved going outside AND if there are outside cats you don't have to put up with the pee. Good luck getting them to use the toilet, I'd be afraid they would bend.

    You don't own a cat. You cohabitate with cats.

    I live in an apartment, so my cat can't go outside. Still, I agree that would be easier than trying to teach him to use the toilet.

    I had the littler genie and my cats broke it in less than two days. They considered it "sport" and killed it. The receptacle was so small it would not get through a day without it overflowing. It is great idea if they could scale it up for industrial use.

    I find my cat bends more if I keep him in my front pocket, but strangely he poops more in my back pocket.

    The iPhone 6 display model (not the 6+) at my local target is bent. Obviously someone bent it. I work with any people with both the 6 and the 6+ and never seen a bent one

    I don't even like cats and I'm still in favor of this.

    ----------

    That's the problem. Stupid animal pays zero rent and struts around like it owns the joint!

    Then again, maybe we're the stupid animals in this situation. Hmmm.

    i live in a very small RV with three adult cats and one litter box. Odor is never a problem. I scoop the box every day and change the litter completely once a month. I also feed my cats good food. Lots of time the odor can be traced to food that disagrees with the cat. Which is exactly the same for dogs, birds and humans.

    Last month I got a visit from a guy who is allergic to cats and it blew his mind that he did not react to my three cats at all.

    Dogs have owners, cats have staff.:p

    ----------

    There are hundreds of reports, but no one wants to admit it was bent because of their fault. It just happens mysteriously.

    My 6+ is still straight as an arrow; no bends thus far.
