I don't know.  Needless to say PC likes the sand pile here but I don't know 
about bringing clean sand in.  I'm having thoughts about mixing it with silica 
crystals (to absorb a lot of urine).  With all the thoughts on litter lately I 
just had to ask for opinions.

fellow man.

  Too dusty? Would it be sanitary?
  I used to use Oil Dry (what mechanics put on garage floors to soak up oil). 
It's not scoopable, of course, but inexpensive.

    A question on this issue:

    I was watching PC (outside cat who decided there was a cute little grey cat 
and good food here).  Has anyone used or considered using sand for litter?  
Cheap, disposable???

      If you have the patience and extra boxes you can line the bottom of a box 
with newspapers and top with litter.  The litter needs to the poured from one 
box to another then the papers pulled and replaced.  They absorb a lot of urine 
and help with odor.  I've done this a few times  for  cats who didn't want me 
in their space to clean the boxes.  It has been a while so you might experiment 
with it.  

      If you keep an eye one Kroger's they put A and H on sale 2 for 1 every 
3-4 months.  Meijer's puts the silica on sale big time too.  I get rain checks 
and stock up big time.

        I basically do the same thing.  Clean one box and wash a day.  5 boxes. 
 Dr. Elsey's is expensive here.  I use arm and hammer or something on sale at 
walmart.....  Litter is expensive.  :(

          Dr. Elseys' Ultra Precious Cats. I fill 2 boxes from one 40lb bag. I 
have 6 boxes for 5 cats. I scoop 3 or more times a day. Dump each box and wash 
with soap and water and refill with fresh litter once a week. I wash a box a 
day (take Sunday off) so kittys always have one fresh box. I have 3 boxes in 
each of 2 locations (3 on second floor and 3 on main floor)..  I use the high 
back boxes from Drs. Foster Smith. I don't buy the covers, just the boxes. If 
they are more zealously using on box, I may have to add litter part way through 
the week.
