Which cat litter?

Post by Brooklynjenn » Tue, 01 Nov 2011 8:12 am

We got our cats out of quarantine a month ago and we've tried a couple of brands of local cat litter, and I have to say they just suck. Maybe there is something others are using that might compare to the fine sand clumping litters in the US, like scoop away or tidy cat (scoopable, not the clay ones I have seen here). The smell is so horrid, and I am cleaning the box two or three times a day. I didn't have to clean it but every two or three days back home. At this point I would even pay extra for air shipped scoop away just to have a nice smell in my apartment again. Any ideas or suggestions? I have tried cat sand and trustee, which the guy at the pet store insisted was a really good one. It is not containing the smell. I have a covered cat box with a filter. I put fresh litter in every day after I scoop. The litter just seems to turn to mud.

I've been here more than 1.5 years and I've yet to find a solution to this. Catsan and trustie seem to have been the best of that type. I've also used a yellowish flaky type of sand that was a disaster, the cats tracked it everywhere in the house. I'm having some paper pellets delivered today, I'll let you know if they're any different.

A burlap bag & a clump weight work well.

I've been seriously considering this, actually. It might be time. I think I'll have to potty train my son first though.

A couple days in and I can't even distinguish a smell standing next to the box and breathing deeply. The carbon/paper pellets seem to be standing up to my two large (6 & 9kg) kitties! http://www.breedercelect.com/ I bought it at Pet Lovers Centre. It does track out of the box a bit, but not as bad as some other litters. I'll have to teach them to wipe their feet :-D
