Mixing crystal litter with clumping litter?

I read a bunch of old threads on litter, and someone, I forget who, said they do this. I was thinking of trying it.

Has anyone else tried this? I would like to hear both sides, success stories and not.

What ratio did you use? You just mix the crystals in and scoop like normal?

Thanks.

I heard the same thing, that some cats don't take to the crystal form very well so mixing is the key. Yes, I'd do a 75/25 to start then slowly start adding what you and kitty like best.

This was someone who used a mixture. Not for transitioning. I think she did 30% crystal? I don't want to do more than about 30% ever because of the cost.

I was mainly thinking it'd be a way to absorb pee for easier cleaning. Now the cats dig down in the sides and corners to pee there, so it sticks.

Maybe I'll just put a tiny bit of oil to make it stick less, because crystals could get expensive even if using 30%.

I saw giant bags of silica crystals at... Kroger? before I moved. I didn't buy them but it was like $9 for the big bag. You might see if your local grocery has them.
