Yes, I have mixed scoopable/clumping (Tidy Cats) with silica crystals before (I 
forgot to mention that in my previous "Litter Dissertation") and it works 
great.  I like the clumping action, but also the crystals just dehydrate the 
urine so well, it really helps odor control.  But I know some cats are freaked 
out by the crystals.  But Monkee loved them- he never wanted to go into his box 
and touch his own wet urine (oh the horror!).  It was nice having an OCD cat, 
but now I've been cursed with the opposite...a dirty little litter-mongerer 
named Yoda!  Monkee's at the Rainbow Bridge both horrified and laughing at me 
at the same time!  And I'm left contemplating a Yoda name change to "Stinky"!

Try the silica gel.............I mix it with the A & H scoopable and it works 
wonders.  I use Rubber Maid 18 gallon boxes or something similar too.

Subject: Litterboxes

Ok, guys, as you know, my cat population has grown to four.  With that comes an 
exponential number of litterboxes (three currently, thinking about upgrading to 
four), and well, honestly, litter is getting a bit expensive with all the other 
costs.  I'm curious about what you guys use?  Right now I use Tidy Cats 
scoopable litter, and the Tidy cats litter deodorizer, too.  I've also been 
changing the boxes out completely every week (at least every other week).  This 
gets expensive, especially considering it takes a box and a half to fill three 
boxes every week.  The problem is if I don't change the box out every week, it 
starts to smell, and one of the litterboxes is in the guestroom. :(  
So my question is, what kind of litter do you guys use, and what protocol do 
you use to keep the odor to a minimum?  What are the differences in scoopable 
versus non-scoopable?  I'd appreciate any opinions on the matter. :)~Michael
