I love crystal. Currently using Scoop Free Auto Box with crystal litter in conjunction with wood pellet, so, I have 2 litter box for 1 cat. My cat uses the wood pellet for poo and crystal for pee, not exactly what I wanted, I'd wanted him to do it the other way round, but oh well...this is how he wanted, tell me how to do get him to do it the other way, sigh, never mind then.
My 4lb bag lasted me only approx 30 counts, so if he pees 3X daily, it lasts me 10days, not 30, but he uses the crystal 1-2X daily for pee, he still does it on the wood pellet, so I don't change out in 10days, I base on the number of counts on the counter, about 30 counts, then I started sniffing around, if it smells, I change out, sometimes I can go upto 35 counts at most.
When I'm on holiday, I use different crystal brand, 2 bags of 5lb bag in a deep litterbox. Works great, I like it so much. The poo gets dehydrated, no smell, my boy love it too, he was using the deep litterbox exclusively for poo and pee. My neighbour who helped out, was amazed, it didn't smell and wasn't gross, cos the poo was all dried up.
Ummm...hope that helps. I love crystal litter, especially since I have switched to the round crystal, it doesn't turn to dust, no at all dusty and stray crystals doesn't hurt the feet when you step on it.
Hope everything is well for you. It will be difficult to bend forward or even lift things. Take care! you might even wanna consider asking your son to come back during that recovery period, just a suggestion.
