OT: Kitty Litter
Hi! I know there are a lot of cat owners among us. I have 2 kitties and we use Arm & Hammer multi cat litter formula. Lately I have noticed that it hasn't been clumping as well.
I am thinking about switching litters but I have no idea which one to choose.
I would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks in advance, you all are the best!

I use Tidy Cats Multi Cats with Extended Odor control. I love it, as much as a person can love cat litter! :rofling: The only issue is my cats kick it everywhere, but the doesn't really seem to matter which brand it is!

We use the Tidy Cats either multi cat or the extended one. Whichever is on sale at Petsmart! As for them kicking it everywhere we got the covers that go with the litter pans so they have a 'dome-like' potty area.

I was hearing recently about the dust that they can kick up from this type of litter and goes into the rectum and causes them to get ill. Is this true? Anyone?

:thinking:

When we first got our cat, we used the litter from PetCo that you can fill up a 30lb tub yourself. That worked really well. Then I got lazy and started using Tidy Cat's Scoop either Long Lasting odor control or sometimes the Immediate control (same diff to me i figger) cuz I didn't always get to PetCo like I do the grocery or Target... I like it. Well, DH's "job" is the cat box..such as it is.
Binky kicks too, but we have a carpet sample on the floor in front of the potty entrance (domed) so it sorta catches the bulk.. He does more scraping and such with his paws around the upper inside of the box than he does in burying his ...have yet to figure that out. :rollseyes:

We use clay, but then again, we have 6 cats. We tried the Tidy Cats litter and some other brand, but the clumpable stuff doesn't have time to clump before someone else gets in the box. :(

We use either Tidy Cats or Fresh Step. Whichever I have a coupon for, or is on sale. Scoop away also clumps really well, but it's hardly ever on sale.

I use the arm & Hammer as well... I did use the tidy cats.. but Cassie, (the cat who uses it) seems to prefer a & H... she doesn't throw it around inside the box as much... so... to keep her majesty happy, lol

I have one domed box, one not. Somehow my two kitties find a way to kick it out of the domed one! Luckily the litter boxes are in our unfinished basement, so it's nothing a little sweeping doesn't take care off. :D

I swear by Tidy Cat Crystals, this stuff is great! It may sound weird but it dehydrates the solids and when I clean, there is no liquids at all. The only time I smell her when she poops is right when she does it, other wise there is no smell, in fact I sometimes forget to clean her box cause I don't smell it ! :rollseyes: One container costs about $16 but it lasts for at least a month or maybe a little longer. I have tried the copy cat ones but they did not work as well.
