ive tried green cat litter and dont see a big difference. currently i am using corn cob mixed with clay, just because im out of litter and i use corn cob for my guinea pig. the cats dont seem to mind and there is no scent at all. i may keep using it since i can buy a huge bag of it for like $4!
Where do you buy a big bag for that cheap? Does it work like scoopable or non-scoopable litter? I would be willing to a corncob litter for that price. All of the other "green" litters are SO expensive!
Click on my blinkies!!
**thank you SO much to tasha_mae for my beautiful siggy
and to CupcakeJamie and Niamh ૐ for my blinkies!!**
When we used to have a cat, we did try green litter, but the smell was so bad we went back to regular Catsan. I would try another type if I came across one, but not the one we bought last time. Not having an unhygienic kitchen for the sake of being slightly greener!
It works like non scoopable, it works great for me since I have a large scoop and scoopable falls right through. with the corn cob, I can pick up the big pieces easily. as for urine, the cob absorbs it, so there is no clump to scoop if that makes sense lol
I get it at a place called Rural King, its like a huge tractor supply, its a farm store that sells stuff for horses and what not. the corn cob i use is sold as bedding for farm animals
Its called Beck's better bedding and its 100% natural crushed cob. It doesnt say how many lbs it is but its about the same size as my 40 lb dog food bag, if not bigger. It lasts my guinea pig for months and i scoop her house out once a week. She is in a 50 gallon aquarium, so I use quite a bit to cover the bottom. I love it because the cob absorbs the urine, so there is no mess stuck to the bottom of her house.
Im gonna try just corn cob in the cat box when its time to change it and see how it works for them alone.
Awesome, thank you! The next time my husband picks up litter for the chicken coop I will have him ask if they carry crushed corn cob or corn cob litter. If not, there are a few other farm supply stores around that I can ask at. I appreciate it, cat litter is SO expensive!
My husband buys the cat liter. We have one of those super fancy cat pans that takes care of itself and it's very specific about cat liter. If it means I don't have to mess with it ever, I'm okay with DH buying whatever! I don't particularly like the cat....
