whatsoever ;)

I have 40 cats so any cat litter expense is going to be flushing money down the 
drain or into the garbage.  I use pine pellets which cost $6.00 for 40 lbs. at 
Tractor Supply.  At that price my cats can poop and pee in luxury.  The pine 
breaks down to a yellow powder though and I have to sweep it up all the time to 
prevent my cat room from looking like a weird beach because the cats dig and 
then track with their paws.  Yellow, yellow everywhere.  I use a light weight 
variable length squeegee to sweep because a broom just makes all that yellow go 
airborne. At least there is no initial dust up when I pour the pine and it 
really deodorizes the contents of the litter box unless I don't dump it often 
enough. I dump and wash and refill about every 3 days, scoop the poop every 
day. Lots of work.  For this I
 needed a college degree?

 Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty 
neighbors too!

I use scoopable litter, but I use the dust free kind. Some scoopable
litter is so dusty clouds of it billow up and this is obviously bad
stuff.  I never use any scoopinig litter with small kittens, but 
with as many grown cats as I have (total 24) I use very large litter 
boxes and I simply can't lift them (to dump) when they are filled with 
the clay litter. I have painful arthritis and I'm ancient... almost 80.

I'd really like to hear from others on the list about who uses clay
litter and who uses scoopable.  Fresh Step and Tidy Cat scoopable don't
seem to have any dust at all, but it's scary to think scoopable litter
is so bad.
