Post Litter Question

What type of litter do you use? regular or scoopable? Is there a special reason you use one over the other?

If you use scoopable, how often do you have to scoop?

Cool

I use plain old clay Tidy Cat. That was the easiest way to go when we had so many cats (and litter boxes). I'm now down to one cat w/two boxes, but he prefers to do "his business" outside since we started letting him out after we got to FL.

Normally we scoop every two or three days, as needed. Sometimes he will have stomach "issues" and the litter box has to be scooped RIGHT THEN or you can't stay in the same room with it!!

One cat, one litter, and I am convinced she only goes to the bathroom once a day! I use Everclean and clean it every night. I think I might switch it to Freshstep or tidyclean scoopable, just because it is easier to get my hands on, unless I can convince my husband to get me an electric litterbox, but with one cat that only goes once a day it seems kinda silly.

I have 2 cats and use Scoop Away Clean (multi-cat, unscented). I just hate the over-powering, sweet, perfume smells in any scented liter. I usually scoop it out every other night. I prefer the scoopable because it lasts longer and never smells like a litterbox!

I use Tidy Cat Scoop multi cat formula. It makes harder clumps that are easier to scoop out.

Cool

Has anyone seen/used the litter for dogs? I'd love to get my girls to use that - especially when it is raining and they back up when they look out the open door.

I wonder how hard it is to get them to use it. Let's see, the ShihTzu would be too blonde, Tibby would be afraid of it, and Wallis would just look at it like "HUH?"

The dog litter is called Second Nature. I probably sell one bag of it a day ( I work for a pet store) There is a huge response from the small dog community. To the dog, it smells like a chemical that smells like other dogs, so they WANT to defecate and urinate there. Now with male dogs, you have to be sure they squat and not lift their legs. Oddly enough, the litter makes male dogs WANT to squat. But the litter is doing great!

The most popular cat litter I sell is a new product to our store called Sweet Wheat, followed closely by the flushable everlcean.

Crittercall, Jessica-soapaddict has a doggie litter too, ask her what she uses, I know it works for her!


Pitterpatter, do you own a pet store?
