I was spending a lot of time at a friend's home who I knew to use natural cleaning products. Her house had a really yucky toxic smell that I just couldn't put my finger on. After a few visits, it clicked, it was her cat litter. She kept her cat litter in the basement yet her whole house smelled like it and my clothing wreaked when I got home, the family would say I smelled perfumey. BTW she keeps a beautiful sparkling clean home, cleans the litter regularly. So I looked up cat litter's toxicity and what the alternatives are. It turns out that it is deadly stuff and off gases everywhere, (obviously), bad for people, bad for the animals. See below:
Thanks Xenia, great to hear! A video I watched on composting said that a farmer's feed store is a cheap place to buy pine pellets, I have not checked my local store yet but plan to soon.
Good tip on the GMO, thanks Peter!
I use litter made from walnut shells. It actually works SO well. Barely any smell and it lasts forever. One of my cats is really picky about his litter and never liked the saw dust or pellet kinds, but he uses this with no issues (:
I TOILET TRAINED MY CAT--DON'T JUDGE ME :)
I used the "citykitty". I used it to potty train my cat. I bought it for 29.99 on amazon. It's made of a semi-sturdy plastic and goes on the toilet under the seat. It sits about an inch or so below the seat and you fill it with litter...I used "sweetwheat". Every week you cut an oval shape from the inside of the city kitty until it it gone. My cat was going in the toilet by the end of five weeks. Check out some youtube videos. It seems really wierd, but I would never go back to a cat box.
So it really works! Hot stuff! Though I'm sure any cat who discovers a camera recording its most private bidnuz will surely exact a horrible revenge...
And finally somebody took the handoff ;D
