Kitty litters - Page 2

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
I wanted to report back on the Citre Max.......wow this stuff is so differnt! It is like a potpouri! Ive been mixing it with the clay litter so kitty would be used to it. It smells alot better in my b-room now!

Another thing I read in NEW NATURAL CAT.......this woman recommended removing the wet litter....as it is the pee she says that smells so strong. (I think both smell pretty bad) But Ive been doing that and it does help.

Anyway......Im sticking with the Citre Max! Wish they carried it at COSTCO, but I get a great deal at Target.

I don't like it. But the litter we use, I love. I've only ever found it at petsmart, so it might be a house brand (but I don't think so, because they've got another house brand) It's called everfresh, it's a clumping litter. It is amazing. With three cats, we try to scoop the box twice a day... but we've had days before where we wouldn't scoop it at all because we couldn't smell it. And when we had five cats, and two boxes, same thing. no odor, and super hard clumps. It does track pretty bad, like all scoopables, but we just have a mat in front of it that works well (if the cats don't pee on it).
It's more expensive (about $12 a bucket) but so worth it. We probably go through a bucket every three weeks or so.

I wouldnt use the clumping litters bc of the toxicity in them.


Anyone try the paper or wood pellets.......?

Yes, I discovered this the other day! WOW!!!!!!!!! All the wet stuff was at the bottom and I'd just been stirring up the top...the ammonia was so strong, my eyes were watering! Seriously, I had to hold my breath! Whew!

However, it was still WAY easier to clean up than the clay crap (so much lighter!!!), and it never stank at all until I emptied the "dry" stuff off the top and disturbed the wet stuff.

So, I just have to get the wet stuff out every few days. Still lovelovelove Citra Max!!! So worth a few extra bucks - and it lasts longer anyway, so I think the price thing evens out.

:

splash, the whole point of this thread was to address the dangers of clay (clumping) litter to cats; and alternatives to clay.

How come you don't like Citra Max?
