There is 124 acres to put it on. Poop gets pitched into unused fields--far from the house. I can't see a difference between theirs and that of the numerous cats who stray this way/deer/buzzards/turkey etc. The pee turns the pellets into sawdust. It may sound gross but it really isn't

You throw it outside?  Not the poop, though, do you?
I can't imagine doing that with all my cat's doodoos....or all the pee!

I like it a lot.  My boys came from a pine thicket so it was a natural
thing for them.  I can pitch the sawdust into the fields, use it
around trees or compost it.

I'd be interested in trying the ExquisiCat, but no stores sell it in
my
town.

I've seen that brand and have always wondered how cats like it. But
I won't
switch unless they tell me they want a change, lol!

good to know, thanks for sharing!

Petsmart carries a wheat litter that is relatively inexpensive.
Exquisicat Natural Wheat.  I'm transitioning to this....

I bought a bag for my FLUTD boy, and the gang seems to be making the
switch well.  It's also scoopable, and I haven't noticed any
litter box
odors.

Maybe give this a try.  It's a little cheaper than Swheat Scoop.

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for sharing this information. I
just
checked both types of litter I have in the house and neither have an
ingredient label. One is Fresh Step and the other is Premium
Choice All
Natural Unscented. I just found the Premium Choice at Pet Supplies
Plus
and
haven't opened/tried it yet.

I tried Feline Pine previously, but the cats didn't like it. I
used to
use
something by Arm & Hammer that was almost like saw dust, but it was
getting
so expensive as I took in more cats that I went back to the clumping
clay -
not realizing the risks. I'll try the method you described using
regular
litter and baking soda.

Thanks again for sharing this info. I'll be sure to pass it on to
others
I
know who are using the clumping litter.

Cindy

Here's more, and this is just the tip of the iceberg!

The #1 Authority On Pet Products, Care and Services Pet Owners
Trust
Most

Kitty Litter with a Serious Warning

Vets have been reporting more and more kitty illnesses related to
litter.
Certain litters are actually causing serious problems for our
feline
friends
including asthma, bronchitis, intestinal blockage and possibly even
lung
cancer.

Most litters are loaded with chemicals to reduce odor and help with absorption. These chemicals are released into the air when your cat
digs
in
the litter box. The dust from the litter gets into the cat's
lungs and
can
wreak havoc on its immune system, putting his or her health in
jeopardy.
With every visit to the litter box, your cat may be polluting its
lungs.
Damage can occur in just a short period of time.

Clumping clay litter, which forms a hard ball when it gets wet,
is one
of
the most harmful types on the market. Several brands use this
clay to
make
their litter easier to scoop. What makes it clump? It's a natural
clay
ingredient called sodium bentonite. In this case, "natural" is not
always
safe. Here's the problem: When this clay gets wet it expands and
forms
a
hard mass. So when your cat or kitten digs in the litter box it's
stirring
up clay dust and breathing it in. Once it gets into their lungs, it
expands
from the moisture, and in time builds up, causing all sorts of lung
problems
like the ones mentioned above.

Some clumping litters actually post a warning right on the bag; "Do
Not
Let
Cat Ingest Litter". It is ridiculous to think that you can stop
your
cat
from breathing while visiting the litter box .You cannot stop
your cat
from
grooming itself with its tongue or stop your new kitten from
swatting
and
nibbling on the litter. Anything their tongue contacts gets
ingested.
Once
the clay litter is inside the cat or kitten and expands, it not
only
could
cause dehydration by absorbing all the body's moisture, it could
also
form
a
hard mass in the intestines over a period of time, which could be
fatal.

The problem of health difficulties and even deaths resulting from
clumping
litters extend far beyond cats and kittens to ferrets, rabbits, and
even
dogs that raid litter boxes. So what can you do? The solution is
easy,
simple and inexpensive. Switch to a biodegradable, dust and clay
free,
non-clumping litter. Many of these biodegradable litters are made
from
recycled paper, which will help to save the environment as well as
your
pet.
You can find these products almost anywhere, just read the label.
If
you're
worried about odor, sprinkle a small amount of baking soda in
with the
litter. It works better than litter deodorizers that just cover up
odors
instead of absorbing them. You can also find a litter box with a
top
that
has a filter for odor control.

Now that you know some of the dangers and their solutions regarding
kitty
litter, hope you will pass this information on to a friend. You
could
be
saving the health or life of an animal.
