Are the pellets hard like Feline Pine?  I tried it an my guys did not like the 
pellets.  The went outside the box just to show their displeasure..  I am now 
using Worlds Best Litter which is ground corn and corn cobs.  It has the same 
texture as clay but is much lighter to carry, biodegradeable and I don't think 
as dusty as clay.  It is a bit pricey, at $13.95 a bag and with 7 cats, I go 
thru a lot of it except in nice weather when they get out for an hor or 2 a 
day.  Also, does it make a fairly hard clump?  I have Dee who feels it is 
necessary to cover after everyone else and she is obsessive about it.  By the 
time she comes out of the box, sometimes the clumps are broken up which makes 
it hard to sift out the used litter.  She will get so noisey scratching in the 
box she even wakes me up.  This sounds great, especially the price as the 50 
pound bag would equal 3 bags of Worlds Best.
