Litterbox war

I had all manner of dogs and cats growing up.

I wasn't put in charge of them, didn't know the incredible mess they made.

fast forward to adulthood.

For my wife who has been ill for over a decade, I gladly keep a few indoor cats.

Now,

I'm not excited about the lack of progress in cat litter & litterbox technology. We can put a man on the moon...yadda yadda yadda.

I seek the vast accumulated knowledge of the planet.

We buy the clumping litter from Sam's.

Is THAT as good as it gets?! Hoochie-mamma, I might go with animatronic cat substitutes for as long as I can get away with it.


Pour forth the wisdom of the ages.

What do you buy? Where? I'd prefer magical stuff, but I'll settle for "works awesome".

Would love "no stink & easy to deal with". Dream on?

Litter box - toilet traing - outside! Problem solved.

That doesnt have a scent, but they make one that does have a scent. I switched to this just because I got tired of all the dust that came with Tidy Cat litter.

I use this too and recommend it.

We had a problem with our cats and the litterbox. Our male liked to perch on the edge and would get pee outside the box. The cats didn't like any of the covered litterboxes (too small) so I made my own set up to contain stray cat pee and litter.





The gray tub is the largest one WalMart sells and the white tub is the largest of the 5" tall tubs they sell. It fits inside the gray tub perfectly. The screen is just made with some scrap 2x2s and some metal mesh (watch for sharp edges).

This really works to contain the mess. I've considered cutting the lid for the gray tub in two and putting half of it over the litterbox since they sometimes jump straight from the litterbox to the toilet but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

We just use the plain clay clumping litter. We buy it from the feed store for about $11 for 50 lbs.

The worst litter box offenders are rabbits. If you've ever had one who was trained to use the litter box.

Best stuff because you can just flush it down your toilet. Its natural and won't clog your pipes, just scoop and flush.

Make them outdoor cats so they can shit in the neighbors' flower garden. They'll bring you mice and rabbits and stuff too.
