Litter?

What kind of litter do you use? I started with 'The World's Best Cat Litter' but it decided that it wasn't worth the price tag. I recently started using Tidy Cats Scoop with a combination of Baking Soda and I'll see how that works out. What litter lives up to your standards because I'm looking for solutions lol.

Re: Litter?

I've used Swheat Scoop for years. I like that it is all natural and it is fairly well priced. Some people complain that it sticks to the bottom/sides (my cat always seems to pee in the same spot so I found giant pee clumps) of the pan, but that can be helped by sprinkling baking soda in the bottom before putting in the litter.

Re: Litter?

I've been using Ever Clean for a while now, and am pretty happy with it. I find that it keeps the smell down, even if the litter is older, and it seems to last pretty long. I've recently tried Precious Cat Ultra, and I found that I loved how it clumps, and that it seems easier to scoop through, but long term it just doesn't keep the oder down, even with daily cleaning of the litter boxes. It's cheaper too, but I seemed to go through alot more of it than the Ever Clean.

Didn't like any of the Arm and Hammer products. They didn't clump, and didn't keep the oder down.

Re: Litter?

Owned, I'm sorry you didn't have better luck with A&H

my breeder recommended ARM & HAMMER Super Scoop Cat Litter (unscented)
which is working out fine, and is $12 cheap for 30lbs at petsmart.

as I run out, I'm going to also try top rated;
Worlds Best & one of the Tidy Cats, but I'll
probably stick with A&H due to the price.
I don't have a car, so I have to find a brand
I can stock up on just a few times per year.
I may also try a wheat based litter once I
find one without bugs and sticking issues.

Re: Litter?

I've been using Tidy Cats (this one: http://www.tidycats.com/GetPage.aspx...6881&T=4622984), but I recently picked up a box of ARM & HAMMER Super Scoop (unscented) to try.

The Tidy Cats has a slight scent to it, but I don't think it's enough to be considered "scented".

Re: Litter?

I love Worlds Best Cat Litter. Love it, love it, and love it. But I hate the price of it. It's supposed to be better bang for your buck as it's supposed to last longer then other litter. I used it faithfully when I only had Reyna to worry about but now with 5 cats in the house, one of them going to the bathroom more then a normal cat and in larger quantities because of his diabetes… it doesn’t last very long and I’ve switched to Simplicity Plus, we get it at Costco, it’s not a horrible price for a large box and even less when you buy several at a time as they knock so much money off for every 12 boxes or something… well lets just say we haven’t gone litter shopping since January. LOL It does it’s job and well, can’t say if it hides smell really well as the boxes are in the basement and the basement has always had a funny mixture smells.

Re: Litter?

Has anyone ever tried Fresh Step or Scoop Away? What are your thoughts on those? What are your experiences with scented or uncented litter?

Re: Litter?

I tried scoop away one time, and I would never use it again! It was, IMO, extremely dusty, and the scent was just way to strong, even for me.

Re: Litter?

I use Fresh Step. The girls' feet smell so pretty.

That is what I'm leaning towards because it is so easy to find. Do you use scented or unscented?
