Looks the same as the stuff I use..
I get mine off ebay..

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Clumping-CAT-LITT ... dZViewItem

it works out about £22 for 25kg so cheaper than the stuff your looking at..
My two cats have no problems with it..
It clumps really well, (like cookies - when wet)
so easy to filter..
smells ok too, and lasts for ages.. :D

Re. World's Best and Swheatscoop... Binky won't use either; Mikesch tried them, but clearly prefers clumping clay litter. He did use the Swheatscoop more often than World's Best though during the trial period (three times compared to just once). I think the grain size is finer with Swheatscoop and mine prefer the sandy-type grain size. Mikesch also used the Arm & Hammer High Performance natural cat litter (corn-based, like World's Best, but finer grain size and somewhat perfumed) on occasion. I also tried the new clumping Feline Pine litter, but that didn't get used at all. (It makes nice fire starter for the wood stove though.) :wink: Anyway, mine clearly prefer clumping clay litter and Binky won't use anything else at all to the point that he gets constipated from holding in, so I'm back to clay litter.

Thanks for the tips and advice - Saffy seems to prefer Catsan, and any clumping, heavy type of litter, William is a definite Worlds best fan. He has expensive taste.. :lol:
Thanks for the link queenb, i'll probably give that a go now, i'll let you know how i get on. :wink:

I decided to try my kittens on World's Best as an alternative to the recycled newsprint litter I was using. Within seconds of me filling the tray, all three of them plunged in side by side and started eating it - not just a little bit, but mouthfuls of the stuff :?

Is that something anyone else's have done with World's Best? I tipped it straight out as I wasn't sure I should let them carry on. Back to the newsprint I suppose.

I've read a lot of comments about cats eating World's Best. I guess it has to do with it being made from corn. Most kibble diets are corn-based (meat-flavored cereal), so if they're kibble-addicts they are confused because they only know corn = food, not litter. They must've been ecstatic about that huge bowl of food you put down for them! :lol:

Glad it's not just mine being bizarre! They did think it was Christmas come early and I wish I'd had my camera because it was so funny to see them dive in together and start chomping - it was like putting a toddler in a bath full of smarties :D

Whilst I don't think a little bit would do them any harm, I don't think it's sensible to leave it down so I now have a big bag of Worlds Best that I can't use!

It's biodegradable, so you can add it to the compost. That's what I did with mine when my cats refused to use it. :wink:

Thanks - I'll do that with it.

The kittens actually seem quite happy with the recycled newsprint so I'll probably stick to that. They'll start going outside now they've been spayed so hopefully they'll do some of their "business" in the woods at the back of the house.

Do you have a cat rescue shelter nearby you can donate it to?
I'm sure they'd love a bit of Worlds Best. :wink:

Or, failing that, if you wanted to recoup some costs, you could advertise it for sale (ebay etc) as a pick up only item. Someone would buy it. 8)

Rescue centre is a good idea - I might try the local one as it seems a shame to waste it. The bag's been opened so I couldn't really sell it on Ebay (plus I live in the far north of Cumbria so it's unlikely someone would want to pick it up!)
