New Litter Box??

Hi everyone, I may have this posted in the wrong spot. If I do please redirect me…


I was at the store and I saw a new litter box from Tiddy Cats it’s called BREEZE. It uses pellets instead of litter and pad at the bottom to absorb the urine. Pellets last 1 month and the pads are changed weekly….I am going to go buy one of these or at least tempted to…has anyone tried this yet? The Pellets are supposed to dry the cat feces faster….and because they are pellets the urine passes down to the pad so that it does not soak up in the litter….pellets are safe and wont harm the cat but also wont leave a litter trial…. Cost of it was $35.00

If anyone has seen it or used it I like to hear from you…..Tiddy Cats has it on their website if you want to take a look.

It looks interesting but after reading the reviews on Amazon.com, I don't think it's for me. The reviews were very good, but one mentioned that the boxes were small and I had to go to using storage totes because Kobi is so big.

It also looks pretty expensive for the refill supplies. If I assume 1 pad per cat per week, that's 12 pads at $1.50 each per month = $18. Then I'd need 3 boxes, so 3 bags of replacement pellets at $9 ea = $27. That's $45 vs. the $24 a month I'm spending now. Nearly double...

Oh wow yeah that would add up...for me would be the size since the box does not tell me much and its bad enough that litter boxes that are avail now are small....Grissom is a big cat. Thanks...I hope more reply....

If you are looking for a larger box I use plastic totes that are made for storage. I have several different sizes, including the large under the bed totes.

I like them much better than regular litter boxes.

When you guys use those storage totes, do you also use a liner? I'm wondering what it would be like without a liner, because the things never fit the box and you end up with big plastic bubbles getting in the way.

I use the under the bed storage totes, and we just found some with no 'bubbles' or grooves.

The Breeze thing sounds like an elaborate scheme to separate cat owners from their money. At least in my humble opinion.

Re:New Litter box??

Cats are unique in that they do not form cataracts when affected with diabetes mellitus. However, they may have an abnormal posture where they are standing on their hocks instead of their toes (known as a plantigrade stance) or they may have chronic vomiting and diarrhea.
