Your honest opinion on litter box liners

especially tiday cats and johnnycat. please give me your thoughts on liners in general and if you can, any expression with the above mentioned.

Since I use non clumping litter because Malto is 9 weeks. It's a TASK to clean his litter box. So I am hoping these litter box liners work. I bought johnny cat.

What do you think?

Alright, it's terribly terribly 'un' green but I use liners. I do NOT however pay more for cat litter liners. I use kitchen size draw string trash bags.

I slip the entire litterbox into the trash bag and tie the drawstring (tucking the excess drawstring back into the bag hole). Then I pour litter OVER the top of the trash bag so it's inside the litter box with the trash bag between the litter and the box. I use clay non clumping as well and I use just enough for a use or two (since he demands it be changed at least daily if not more often).

When it's time to empty the litter i just use a pair of little scissors to snip the draw string and turn the bag inside out collecting up all the litter and waste and toss it into my main trash can outside.

His claws DO leave pin holes in some places so the bottom of the pan does get damp but I soak it in sanitizer anyway with each cleaning so it doesn't much matter to me. If he really claws it up I'll carry back a paper shopping bag with me and dump it into that and then fold that up and toss it in the trash can.

oh Malto loves to dig and dig and...dig. So I would need something tear resistant or it would defeat the purpose for me lol. I don't use garbage bags for garbage, i use my grocery bags. I would love to be green and I am sure there are liners out there made from biodegradable stuff..i just cant afford it...yet.

I've been contemplating using a diaper pail for Gabby's waste. I found one that uses the plastic grocery bags. Since it's a diaper pail it has the deodorizer too. Since Malto loves to dig maybe get 2 smaller pans and no bags? The purpose of 2 pans is so you can have one ready to go while washing the other one out.

This is what I do. I have two plain 'ole pans. One is down and the other is either soaking in sanitizer or drying upside down on an old bathmat I have on the shelf next to his litter box.

That's way cheaper than the cat version: Litter Locker II: Angelcare Litter Locker II at PETCO

Plus you don't have to buy special cartridges. Good deal.

Had liners but she is a digger so they were torn in first use each time.
