RE: New cat litter will detect illness in cats

I'm now buying my cat litter at the hardware store. I pick up a 40lb bag of wood stove pellets for $4.99...it doesn't mask odors quite as well has the pine pellets (Feline Pine, Pet Smart's brand), but still better than all those perfumy cat litters. I can change it more often and still save $$$.
