We use This litter (The "Breeders" version....slightly darker in colour, but doesnt track so much as the std version)...

It says its "Flushable"......does anyone do this???#

Currenlty we put ours in nappysacks, and in the bin....but this isnt that ecologically friendly (I mean, its in a plastic bag, that will take AGES to decompose).... the toilet, is afterall, designed to cope with poop!......but today I read about the common virus/bug whatever it is (that potentially affects pregnannt woman) is also killing/effeting otters, after the parasite from the cat litter is making its way into the water system...


How do people here cope with their cat litter????

PS Gavin, dont see you over at theDVDfoums mutch these days.....

We flush ours :oops: Guess we've killed a few otters :shock: Though if they don't go out then I guess they can't catch the parasite?

Still lurk on DVDforums, I like the bargain forum 8)

Dont " :oops: " at flushing.....I read that LOADS of people in the US do. I was just wondering what would be concidered the most Eco-friendly way of getting rid of the stuff....

I'm no "Tree hugger" , but I spend a lot of my time outside, and I care about the environment, and will do my bit if I can. Landfill is fast becoming a problem....anything I can do to reduce it, I will

The side of the bag also says its "compostable"......but all the "gardening based" websites I've looked at, have stated that cat/dog poop should NOT be put on the compost.

I've seen the chemical thingies that you part bury, put the poop/dose of chemicals in, and it leaches into the surrounding soil.....but I just dont like the fundementals of that process....(Even if I can spell it!)

any other suggestions?

Could make a separate compost heap just for the cat litter.... I guess it will decompose as well - might smell a bit though :lol:

Gavin,

You were right about the source.....Its just not listed on their sight. You have to phone up and see if they will supply you with the "Extra strength" version.....they called it the breeders version onthe phone, but it says "Extra Strength" ont he bag.

Hi
tagging on to this a bit late . .
We are using wood based litter and I bag it up and burn it in our fire (It is a stove style fire - not open. With an open fire it might smell too much)
The thing is that it tracks around the house when even a little bit of it gets damp so you end up either throwing away a lot of litter that is still ok, or having sawdusty little paw prints all over the place.
We have finally succumbed to Worlds Best after the 20th email and a great great offer - how did they get our email address . . .?
I am hoping that we will be able to burn this also. . . ? I am wary of flushing re ecological problems and have been warned by the farmer it might be a bad idea to add it to the horse muck heap for the garden.

Hi to all,

Can anyone give a good alternative to woodpellet litter as i seem to be allergic to it, is the granuale type really dangerous to cats as i have read
some bad reviews?

Hi Nikki,
we don't use cat litter, we use chicken food as cat litter. The stuff is called "Chick Crumb" and you get it from farm supplies. It's wonderful stuff! It does not smell, it clumps up the wet stuff etc. and it's a lot cheaper, I believe, than normal cat litter.

A 20kg bag costs me in the region of £8-£9 and will last me about 6 weeks (for 2 bengals). It's worth a try!
