My gys have never eaten litter, but I use Worlds Best which is ground corn cobs and corn because it is biodegradeable, can be composted in its own compost bin anb is lightweight and has the same texture as clay . It is not as dusty as clay also and the cats love it. Kathryn Hargreaves

Yes, I used to use it until I realized that all corn not marked ``Organic'' is GMO. On Wed, Feb 8, 2012 at 4:59 PM, dlg...@windstream.net wrote: My gys have never eaten litter, but I use Worlds Best which is ground corn cobs and corn because it is biodegradeable, can be composted in its own

First -- I'm sorry you had to find us, but I'm glad you're here. Please try to remain as calm as possible and don't panic. Ginger will pick up on that -- he might get stressed out if you're freaking out and that won't help him. (hugs) Only you can decide if it's time to let him go.

Eating litter is a classic sign of severe anemia. Most of my FeLV's died from anemia. At this point it's probably too late for interferon. That is a good preventative to boost the immune system, but it takes a while to start working. I euthanized all mine at the point they started eating

Tanya's CRF site is awesome. It really helped me turn my renal cat around. I can't access my list of things to feed when cats refuse to eat right now. Off the top of my head: a plain McDonald's hamburger patty, all meat baby food, boiled chicken, cheese, lunchmeat, smelly fish food.. I am

Hi I just have to be totally honest here so that you and Ginger don't go through what my little Fletch went through. I didn't make it to the vet on time. Fletch died in his crate while I was racing to get him there to stop his suffering. He died a horrible death, and I will never ever forget
