Swheat scoopable...............

Hi again all,

I have been using tidy cat products, placing the crystals at the bottom of the litter box, then the litter overtop of the crystals. It seems to be working well for us, and my two guys. However, I have been destroying some of my ignorance (with the help of you all) and discovered the Swheat. Upon checking further at the store, a 40 lb bag is $22!

I am all for helping the environment, but I could by 200 lbs of tidy cat for that same amount of money. Is it all it is really talked up to be? How / where are you folks that use it getting it? I just don't think the price is tolerable at all.

Thanks for any input.

I don't mind spending extra for high quality food, and I do. But we change completely the litter boxes every week. As in empty, clean, refill. A 40 lb bag of litter will do 5 litter box cleanings, or roughly 2 1/2 weeks, as we have 2 litter boxes. So, doing the math, that would be roughly ..........

52 weeks per yr / 2.5 weeks per bag = 20.8 bags / yr
20.8 bags / yr X $22 per bag = $457.60 / yr.

Tidy Cat @ Sam's club (40 lb bag) = $4.88
20.8 bags / yr X $4.88 per bag = $101.50 / yr.

I do a lot for the environment now, we recycle everything we can. But I just can't tolerate that price being almost 5 times more than what we are paying now. So, it's flushable...........I am on a septic tank and don't think that is a good idea anyway. I'm not knocking anyone who uses it, I just can't afford to is my point. Wheat is a renewable resource, so I just don't understand why the HUGE price difference. Maybe if you all would stop buying it, they would adjust the price? I know wishful thinking. I'll just wait until it becomes more affordable.
