    Kitty litter can mean 'a batch of cat babies', the stuff cats urinate and defecate into if they are kept inside, or that someone is littering (throwing out bits of garbage) with kitty chunks. It's sounds kind of disturbing said like that though.

    I think it's just that kitty litter, the poop sand, is named after the pile of babies, a litter of kittens.

    It's a double/triple meaning which is, by definition, a pun. Puns don't just use similar sounding words though that's more often how I think of them and how we see them.

    I demand to be reimbursed for that meme! It was too obscure and unrelated to WC to pass the regulatory standards of memetic humour (form A38 on the KilrathiKoin subscriber plan).
