Cat Litter Conversion

Maybe this should be called Poop-pourri! For the last few weeks I have converted the cats over from clay and wheat-based litter to pine. My friend Mark (Millard) converted his cats earlier and recommended it. At first it’s a bit of work since you have to mix it in with what they’re used to so they don’t freak out and start going elsewhere. 

Now all the clay and wheat are gone and it’s nothing but pine. Personally, I think it’s working out better because I don’t smell the ammonia, the dead giveaway cats live in your home. On the downside, I think the cats are protesting by leaving their number two on the surface because they can’t bury it to their satisfaction (my guess). But I’ll keep it up since I only have to clean out the solid waste in the litter boxes every morning. After about a week, the boxes are predominantly sawdust so I empty it out of waste, remaining pine pellets and the sawdust goes into my compost pile. 

If you have cats, consider Feline Pine because it seems to last longer than clay litter, smells better and it’s predominantly biodegradable.

    I never knew there was such a science to it. Oh well, that’s why I don’t have cats!

    If you don’t want to smell the mess, you’ll go to the lengths and I prefer them over dogs. I remember growing up and how the dog made the backyard into a minefield.

    You didn’t mention Molly’s personal form of protest on the litter change…
