I've thought about this before. So, if memory serves me correct, it is in Ben Falks book The Resilient Farm and Homestead he briefly mentions this subject. He often hosts small groups on his homestead to teach, and those that smoke or are taking pharmaceuticals he asks to use the toilet, and those who don't take any pills or smoke may pee on the compost pile. It's been a few years since I read his book, but that is what I remember.

Having had cats my entire life I'll second the comments by Carla and Anne. At least give BK the choice.

I also got a request for an email in order to continue reading.

Here's a link to the publisher as an alternate for information: https://www.chelseagreen.com/product/toxic-legacy/

One of the pics in Anne's post above is me now, except imagine a cat instead of a dog. It's been a long time since I've done anything for New Years eve and it'll be lights out about 8 like any other day.

I think this is a great question, and unfortunately I don't have a good answer for you. What I can surmise though is that pocket hole joinery has been used in furniture and cabinet making for decades but has not been adopted to framing and home construction. Like you mentioned, it seems that pocket hole joinery is purely for aesthetics.

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a beautiful day filled with joy alongside whom they love, whether it's with animals, people or just alone with Mother Nature.
